A must for grubby gardening hands, our Grimy Gardener’s Soap is super-scrubby and deep-cleaning. Formulated with natural ingredients to lift all that ground-in dirt, we’ve used a blend of ground olive stones, green clay and ground pumice because they will really scrub away the dirt.
It is a moisturising and soothing soap because we’ve packed in lots of skin-loving ingredients. It has a clean, fresh herbal scent, as we have used a carefully formulated mix of natural essential oils. It’s nourishing and deeply moisturising because we’ve added a generous amount of Shea butter to help the skin. We’ve added Tea Tree essential oil because of it’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities. Finally, we’ve added Aloe Vera, Cornish honey from the Fowey Valley, goat’s milk and glycerine to help soothe and nourish irritated gardening hands.
As always, we use Olive oil in our soap base, as it’s packed with skin-nourishing nutrients. We have also added coconut oil to give our soaps a rich, creamy lather.

I bought a gardeners gift set at the Eden Project Christmas Fayre and my husband and I both love the amazing soap. We always gave grimy hands from gardening and working on our allotment and this soap really does lift even ground in dirt that any other soap leaves behind without drying out your skin. I am just about to buy some more.
