Oakwood Soaperie | Ceri Aitman

Hi, I'm Ceri, product formulator, soap maker, flower grower, photo taker and chief tea drinker at Oakwood Soaperie.

I love to make things, I love to walk in the wilderness, to feel the sun on my face and to come home to my family, furry animals and my veggie garden at the end of the day. I came accross natural product and real soap making and became ever so slightly obsessed with using natural ingredients. Every product I offer is hand made, by me with love. I specialise in luxurious and traditional 'cold process' method soaps and luxurious bathing products, made to my own tried and tested recipies in my rural workshop in the Tyne Valley in Northumberland. I'm delighted to be able to use organically grown flowers and herbs from my botanical plot right near my studio in lots of my products too.

My handmade, natural soaps are made with pure Olive oil, Sunflower Oil and Coconut oil along with lashings of skin loving Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and enriching skin specific treatment oils such as Rosehip, Hemp, jojoba, Ricebran and Avocado oil among others. These are all rich in natural vitamins that are retained in the final bar and are delivered exactly where they are needed...straight to your skin. I love to use what I make, I hope you will too.
