Our Cucumber soap is handmade using a traditional cold process method and like all our products, it’s vegan and made with lots of skin friendly natural ingredients.
Cucumber has long been a staple in beauty so I wanted create a soap that made use of this wonderful ingredient. I use cucumber water and a light fragrance to create this fresh, invigorating body bar. The soap is naturally coloured with the green from the cucumber juice and some green clay which is also excellent for drawing impurities from the skin.
We have carefully chosen a blend of natural oils and butters to clean, nourish and moisturise your body. This bar includes olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil and sunflower oil.
You will receive one generously sized bar (110g minimum). All our soaps are wrapped in compostable cellophane but you will have the choice of wrapped or unwrapped (naked) when ordering.
The method we use for soap making means that bars are suitable for use after a couple of days but they still contain water which evaporates through time so we like to cure our soaps for a minimum of 5 weeks to create a harder, longer lasting bar. To prolong the life of your soap keep it out of water when not in use, a soap dish or wire rack in your shower is ideal. The bars are big enough that you can half them, keeping some dry for later meaning they will last even longer!
Our products are produced in a nutty environment so please bear this in mind for any nut allergies.

As well as being passionate about what goes into my products I'm passionate about what goes around them (and one of the reasons I make bar soap is because I want to minimise single use plastic). You eat with your eyes right? So I had a long think about packaging, I want you to see the products when they're on display but didn't want to use plastics so I decided to use a fully home compostable cellophane for the body soaps. Composting is king! Recycling takes up energy but these wrappers can be composted at home in a well managed compost heap and can even go in council food bins.
Here’s a link to find out more about the wrappers.
When I'm mailing out your orders I want them to arrive in the same condition as they left and I use packaging that’s either reused, made from recycled materials or is recyclable.
Because of the work I’ve done on eliminating single use plastic Superfly Soap has been awarded Plastic Free Champion status from Surfers Against Sewage but the work continues and I'm constantly looking at ways I can reduce the use of SUP's in the production side of the business.
