Why we'll be your favourite store
At Purple Lime Soapery, we take pride in the production of hand-crafted soaps, bath and body products manufactured from the finest quality ingredients.
All our products are produced using pure plants based oils and highest quality essential oils. No animal products or derivatives thereof are utilised. Our products are not tested on animals and ingredients are not produced at the expense of animal habitat or life, to the best of our knowledge.
Certain varieties of soaps are made using clays, micas or oxides to add colour or other benefits. The inert oxides and mica colours we use are synthetically derived to avoid toxic heavy metal contamination as well as to avoid the exploitation of child labour.
Lye (sodium hydroxide) is used in all natural soap production in order to saponify the base oils, but is completely neutralised by the this process, and is therefore completely absent in the finished product.
Each batch is hand made, hand poured, hand cut and made with love. To preserve the quality and integrity of our products, only small batches are produced to ensure you are receiving the best product available.

For longer lasting soap bars, do not allow the bars of soap to sit in water. After use, place in a dry area, such as soap rack, away from water. Please note that coloured soaps may stain, please store accordingly as we accept no responsibility for any damages caused. All soaps containing colourants or natural clays could potentially stain light coloured wash cloths.
As all our soap is handmade, we can’t duplicate the exact colouration and appearance each time so bars may vary slightly from what is displayed in the catalogue. While we try to be extremely precise, each bar is individually hand cut and may vary slightly in weight and dimensions.
We cannot guarantee actual results on any of our products, as every person’s skin and body is different. It is up to you to use your personal discretion when purchasing and using our products.
