Journey to creating The Australian Soap Kitchen

Hello there, my name is Sara!

I would love to share my story about the journey to creating The Australian Soap Kitchen!

I am a Mum of three wonderful children and a Health Scientist.

I have spent 18 years studying, researching and teaching (at a Melbourne-based university) nutrition and food science, as I have always been interested in what we are feeding our bodies and their effects on health and well-being.

After having my B1 & B2 (my two older children), I began to increasingly think about and question what ingredients were in our everyday household wash products, and essentially what we (as a family) were feeding our skin. It did not take long for me to realise that what we feed our skin is just as important as what we feed our body! I also learnt about the many worrisome ingredients in commercial soaps and felt the need to develop an all-natural alternative utlising traditional soap making methods.

So I started to 'cook up' some very special soapy delights in my kitchen and they were an instant hit with my family, extended family and friends! Just like that The Australian Soap Kitchen was born!!

At The Australian Soap Kitchen our focus is to use only the finest and purist ingredients, and simply produce natural, organic, vegan, palm oil-free, earth-conscious, skin-loving and nourishing soap.  In fact, majority of the ingredients used in our soaps may very well be found in your kitchen pantry!

Soapy Love,
