Soaps, Shampoos & Scrubs
Handmade in Edinburgh, Scotland
If you’ve been alarmed by the effects of our insatiable use of plastic and palm oil and decided to change your buying habits, you may find that it’s not that simple: artisan soaps, while beautiful, can sometimes be just too expensive for everyday use and confined to be given as a gift; and cheap, commercial soap is packaged many times in cellophane or plastic and they contain the ever-present and destructive palm oil.
Scents & Sensibility was created with the aim to encourage more people to use solid soap and shampoo by offering products that are very competitively priced. They may seem slightly more expensive than some commercial, mass produced brands, but they are all handmade with ingredients that are biodegradable. The soap bases are vegetable based from a manufacturer that has won many environmental awards; packaging is limited: the card sleeve can be recycled, the glue holding the card together is made from potato starch and water and the bags, jars and glass dishes can be washed and reused many times.
