‘Buttercup Soaps initially started as a hobby. We enjoy making soap, experimenting with different oils and scents and natural ingredients to make different recipes. All the soaps are independently assessed as being safe to use and follow UK and EU laws, and take 4-6 weeks to cure (moisture evaporates, leaving a harder, longer lasting bar of soap). Our soap room has all the soaps in the photograph currently curing and it smells amazing!’
