Shakespeare’s Sister’s Soaps

We have another lovely new product in store which we are all very excited about. A few weeks ago Judith, from Shakespeare’s Sister’s Soap company based in Stratford-upon-Avon came to visit us at the shop to let us test and smell some of her lovely product. As a result we have just had in some soaps, handwashes, body parfums, salt scrubs and lip balms in Rose, Lavender and Citrus collections. Coughton Court are also selling this product which is where we got the idea to stock it from.

Here is some background information from the website

We are a small artisan natural soap making company, based in Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

We are unique in making our own hydrosols (flower waters) and may of our essential oils using an ancient method of distillation in our handmade copper Alembic Still which gives our soaps layer upon layer of glorious natural scent. All our soaps are made using the finest quality, home-grown or locally sourced, sustainable and where possible, organic ingredients and are hand-made entirely by us.

We do not use colourants, additives or preservatives (parabens), genetically modified ingredients nor rendered animal fat – neither do we test on animals. None of our soaps contain synthetic surfactants (foaming ingredients) such as sodium lauryl sulfate.

If Shakespeare visited us today, he would recognise our time honored production methods we use as our soaps are made using the traditional cold-process batch method, producing twenty-five bars at a time and taking five weeks to cure to perfection.

We are E.U. Certified and Members of the Guild of the Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers and The   European Directory of Soap & Cosmetic Makers.

We are passionate about our soaps and hope our passion for simple, sumptuous and natural soaps touches you too…. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch by email on

‘One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.’

Troilus and Cressida , Act 3 , Scene 3
William Shakespeare

So come and have a look and try these wonderful products for yourselves!
