The Sugar Loaf Soap Company
What: A fledgling business making traditional soap, bath salts and lip balms using ethically sourced, 100% natural raw materials. With twin emphasis on luxury and local resources, The Sugar Loaf Soap Company also offers a range of accessories made by craftspeople from the Brecon Beacons and everything is beautifully presented in bio-degradable packaging. The brand has recently caught the attention of BBC’s Countryfile and Sugar Loaf products will appear in their VIP goody-bags at this year’s Gardener’s World Live exhibition.
Who: After a 10 year stint in sales and marketing for the car company BMW, Sam Jones followed her ancestral roots home to Wales. After struggling to find good quality Welsh-made soap for her family’s holiday cottage, she attended courses, carried out research and began experimenting with natural bath products. The Sugar Loaf Soap Company was born as a result of her passion in September 2010.
Where: You can order gifts for others and treats for yourself 24 hours a day via www.sugarloafsoaps.co.uk or find a selection of Sugar Loaf products across gift shops, spas and restaurants within the Brecon Beacons and stretching into Monmouthshire. Sam can also been found at local farmer’s markets, so why not pop over for a chat and learn why handmade soap blows it’s commercially-manufactured counterparts out of the water!
