Introducing BrambleWood Soap Co's Award Winning Skincare

When searching for new companies to work with, it’s important to us at Valley Mill to find people with similar values to our own. We love to work with like-minded small businesses; that have their own unique story, care about the products that they make and the effect they have on you as a customer, as well as the environment. And BrambleWood Soap Co., the company behind our new skincare range, is exactly that kind of small business!

BrambleWood Soap Co. was founded in 2019 by Laura Cullen. Laura began her company as she wanted to create natural soap and skincare suitable for the whole family. All of her products are handmade in small batches in Dorset. They are 100% natural and are free from chemicals and additives. All of the natural and botanical ingredients have been chosen for their superior smell, aromatherapy qualities, and skin-nourishing properties. Everything Laura has created is vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and is as kind to the environment as it is on your budget. They are completely plastic-free and all of the packaging chosen is recyclable or reusable.

About BrambleWood Soap’s Range

The first new product to our skincare range is their moisturising bath fizzies. These bath bombs’ signature recipe includes moisturising cocoa butter to soothe your skin and essential oils for luxurious natural fragrances. They are wrapped in fully biodegradable glassine bags and recycled paper, meaning there is no plastic waste.

The second product range we are launching is BrambleWood Soaps’ botanical bath teas. These beautiful bath salts are made with mineral-rich salts, botanicals, and essential oils that soften skin and soothe achy muscles. All of the packaging is reusable, including the glass jar with a cork lid. They also come with a reusable cotton ‘tea bag’ and wooden spoon that help create a unique at-home spa experience.
