Bean & Boy is a family-run business making soap by hand in Southend-on-Sea, UK. They started making soap for their family when their daughter developed a mild form of eczema that was made worse by commercially-produced soaps and washes. Bean & Boy settled on a combination of high quality ingredients, unfussy essential oil blends, and a slow soap-making process that is as close to the ancient traditional methods as possible. There’s nothing else added: no preservatives, no colourants, no fragrances and no additional heat to speed things up. Bean & Boy have grown out of their kitchen and now make soap in their little workshop on a nearby farm, but they still ensure that each batch is carefully made by hand using the traditional cold process method and the finest natural ingredients.
