Welcome to Welsh Valley Soapery
Love Your Skin Naturally!
We make bespoke essential oil soaps, shampoo, conditioning bars & bath products.
We make our soap in the traditional cold process method (no melt & pour here!) allowing us to use our artistic skill to make a beautiful looking product. Each soap is cured for a minimum of four weeks.
Our products are plastic-free, made with palm-free oils in the same method soap has been made for hundreds of years. We make all of our products by hand in our soapery. We offer bespoke artisan luxury products but without a ridiculous price tag. We are passionate about the environment and sustainability. Our packaging is 100% recyclable & minimal.
We attend local welsh markets and events. We are available in shops and you can buy direct on our online shop. See our 'what's on' section for next events.
Abi & Emma Hanks - Founders of Welsh Valley Soapery, invite you to find out a little more about their journey.
Who Are We?
Welsh Valley Soapery is a family business set in the heart of the valleys, in historic Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil. Inspired by the fresh air, waterfalls and nature of the Brecon Beacons our products are a real treat and are as ethical as they are indulgent.
Our beautiful products are a contemporary take on traditional soaps, solid shampoo & solid conditioner bars. We want to harness the power of nature and reflect the beauty of nature in our products. We believe that natural products are better for your health and well being.

Our Essential Oil Soaps
Our Soaps are Palm-Free. We have worked hard to find a blend that is affordable, cleansing, with the right consistency.
Our soaps are mild enough to use on the whole body and face.
We use European Rapeseed oil and a super-fat blend of nut and seed oils to make our soaps cleansing, hardy, and 100% vegan and cruelty-free
Our Essential Oil Shampoos
Our solid shampoo bars have been handmade by us using raw materials.
We use high quality ethically and sustainably sourced cocoa butter, shea butter and argan oil.

...and yes they have a wonderful lather!
