Essential oils, flowers, spices and herbs are used for their scent and colour, their healing properties, and some – such as poppy seeds and hemp bran – will gently exfoliate the skin.
The range includes a delightful blends of patchouli and sandalwood, orange and grapefruit, lemongrass and hemp, and peppermint and poppy seeds, among others.
In line with Friendly Soap founders Rob Costello and Geoff Kerouac’ ethical values, the UK-based brand keep their energy consumption is kept to an absolute minimum. Each and every bar is poured and cut by hand and packed in recycled and recyclable card boxes.
