We are Biomedical Scientists who met at work in the Pathology Laboratory of the local hospital in Taunton. We became friends, and discovered a shared love of making pure, hand made soap. We gradually developed our recipes and essential oil combinations, and in February 2017 our small business ‘Lily and Lynn’ was launched.
We hand make every batch of soap in our kitchens, (much to our husband’s dismay), but on the plus side, our houses smell divine!
We use no artificial colouring products, choosing instead to enhance the colour by the addition of fine natural clays and spices.
The scent of our soaps is achieved by adding essential oils – we use no artificial fragrances.
All our soaps and shampoo bars contain Vitamin E, and most have enrichment oils added, such as Sweet Almond, Avocado, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Wheatgerm.
Our product range of 15 varieties includes an unscented, uncoloured one, for those with sensitive skin, and an exfoliating one containing fine oatmeal.
Our soaps are very luxurious – creamy, moisturising and long lasting.
We also have a range of 8 shampoo bars – perfect for those trying to reduce the use of plastic.
‘Lily and Lynn’ is a member of The Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers.
PS. We are in fact Clare and Lynn – Lynn’s grandmother was called Lily!
