Tales from the Soap Shack
Sorry this is a bit late coming! I mean it’s practically half way through January already! I’ve had a bit of a time of it between Christmas and New Year with house stuff going on, central heating being fitted, massive deliveries of ingredients arriving at home at the same time as all the work going[…]
Today I wanted to tell you all about some new Christmas products, update you on outlets and give you details of some of the events I’m attending in the next few weeks. However, yesterday was such a strange, weird, funny old day that I thought I’d share that with you first, just so you get[…]
Can you believe it’s already 1st November and time for the Christmas Product Launch? It’s finally time to show off those Christmas soaps and I’m really excited to show them to you! I have 6 Christmas soaps which I am releasing on the website today. Pop over and have a look under the Christmas Header.[…]
Good morning everyone. Good to see the sun shining but it’s much cooler here now, which is good for making products! I’ve been wrapping soap like a demon the last few days as I’ve had over 300 soaps that have completed the curing process and need to be wrapped before the next lot are ready[…]
Hello all, I’ve been awol again for a while as things have been a bit hectic in soap land lately and I’ve been spending every minute of my time wrapping soap, so there’s been no time for blogging! Here’s a little recap… I was asked to contribute an advertorial to Harper’s Bazaar in their October[…]
Hola lovely readers! This week I wanted to tell you about some lovely accessories that I am now selling both online and in the soap shack. Natural Ramie Scrunchies: 100% natural fibre made from the stalks of a plant called Chinese Nettle (Boehmeria nivea). It has been used for over five thousand years in China, India and […]
Hello all, It’s been a busy couple of weeks in the soap shack. The weather cooled briefly which gave me the chance to go crazy making stuff. The soap shack gets very warm, what with it being an oversized garden shed and all that, but the last week or so has been downright pleasant in[…]
This weeks blog is all about a new product that is launching today… Argan and Chamomile cuticle and nail oil. It is a blend of organic argan, almond, jojoba and borage oils. Lemon and chamomile essential oils provide a fragrance that is as beneficial as it’s beautiful. This is the perfect product if your nails[…]
I’ve been running a Friday facial focus on my facebook page for the last few months. Sadly, it hasn’t had much engagement, but I’m going to keep it going for a while longer as I feel it has potential to be a really good sounding board for us ladies (and men too, we’re not excluding[…]
Summer’s here (ahem.. cough.. flaming awful June it’s going to be called!) and it’s time for a quick update of all that’s been going on at Maldon Soap. The last few weeks have been exceptionally busy in the soap shack. I’ve begun selling the soap in 3 new outlets – although one is sadly closing[…]
Hello! I wanted to give you a heads up of a few things that have happened lately in the soap shack and in the general world of Maldon Soap. Firstly, I’m pleased to announce a few more old favourites that are back in stock. Pure Rose soap is back with a new opaque look. Still[…]
It’s been an interesting few weeks at the Soap Shack. With the rare breeds farm opening at the beginning of the holidays it’s been very busy all round in the garden centre. This has bought lots of new visitors to the soap shack. Lots of them have been to the centre before but didn’t even[…]
Well it may be April 1st but there’s no fooling around at Maldon Soap. There’s a brand new website and it’s fantastic! The old website had outlived its usefulness and badly needed a revamp so it’s been changed completely and now it has a new modern look and works much more efficiently. It’s much more[…]
Good Friday at the Annley House Tea Rooms for their Easter fayre. Come and join us for a festive start to your Easter weekend 🙂 x
“My skin has literally changed!” An in-depth look at Intensive Serum and a spotlight on Rosehip Oil.
For around a year now I have been making a product called Intensive Serum. I developed it for use on the face, but it should also be used on neck and decolletage (the bit between your chin and your boobs) to provide nourishment to this delicate and often neglected area which can lose moisture and[…]
Welcome to the first blog of 2016. Apologies that it wasn’t in January! I’m planning more frequent blogs to keep followers up to date with what’s going on in the world of Maldon Soap. January was a really busy month for soap making. The shops and outlets practically sold out of soap in December and[…]
Well there’s no denying it, it’s getting colder, damper, darker and danker – I love that word! Winter is most definitely on its way. While this conjures up romantic images of walking through the woods wearing big fluffy jumpers, kicking up fallen leaves, eating jacket potatoes, wearing fleecy jim jams and sitting in front of[…]
First of all, huge apologies for the lack of blogs these past few months! Happily it’s because I’ve been so busy making and selling soap – although I did have two throat infections that weren’t very nice – but that’s no excuse. Anyway, I’m a great believer that the build up to Christmas should be[…]
Firstly I’d like to apologise for the lateness of this blog and the subsequent newsletter which will follow soon (I promise). A few weeks ago I woke up with a funny back and pain between my shoulder blades. It just got worse and worse and I ended up at A&E because I didn’t know what[…]
Here at Maldon Soap we really care about what goes into the soaps we make. As well as lovely cold pressed oils, fairly traded butters and no nasty, unnecessary additives we also like to go one step further and support the local community by using as many local ingredients as possible in our soaps, creams[…]
I tried writing this blog out in the garden whilst getting some sun on my winter white skin but I couldn’t see the screen, there was no wifi and I started burning! But apart from that it was a great idea! I am currently trying to rest and put my feet up after my rather[…]
What’s your skincare story? At Maldon soap we love talking about skin! Sounds pretty weird, but if you have problem skin we’d love to hear about it! If you’d like to share your skincare story with us, what skincare problems you face, what you use or how we can help your skin please feel free[…]
In this blog I wanted to talk about the ingredients I use in my soaps and how my soap differs from other soaps on the market. The ingredients I use in my soaps, and all the skincare products, are critical to the quality and effectiveness of what I make. If I can’t use the best[…]
Hello and welcome to our first WordPress blog. After spending 4 hours doing research and typing the blog on tumblr I then lost the lot when it disappeared from my iPad. I wasn’t a happy bunny I can tell you! Having now switched to WordPress I’m expecting great things and will at least be able[…]
About Maldon Soap Hello. My name is Sue McKenna and I’m the owner and creator of The Maldon Soap Company. After trying for years to find soaps and skincare products for myself that were as natural, additive free and suitable for sensitive skin as possible I decided to make my own! After the initial excitement[…]
