Oona soaps are made in small batches, hand cut then cured for 6 weeks, we create them to be a natural and indulgent experience, all the ingredients are of good quality , we don’t use any tallow, lard, palm oil or sustainable Palm oil, in the making of these soaps, all natural, and with a lovely lather. They are scented with beautiful fragrance oils or Essential oils, and our range includes unique and tempting scent blends.
The business (Oona) is named after one of our grandmothers although it is spelt differently. She was an inspiration and a very hard worker.
Each bar of soap is carefully made to encapsulate the essence of nature and well being, that is found in all the natural ingredients. Our skin care range is also made to order .
All our products are proudly handcrafted from scratch, in a 120 year old villa, situated in Christchurch, New Zealand. We have a passion for all things natural and healthy and a dedication to make a difference with being plastic free, where we can. Our wrapping of the products is eco friendly – no use of plastic wraps or bubble wrap.
After many discussions and drawings and colour ways the wrapping and labels were finally given the go ahead, they are all designed by my youngest daughter who is also an artist (like me) living in Christchurch.
