WELCOME TO MY SOAP SCHOOL!
I'm Proud Mary and I've been designing, certifying and selling my eco friendly and zero waste products in the UK and Europe from my home town of Alton, Hampshire since 2019, selling 000's of bars of soap, shampoo and conditioners to individual customers and stockists across the UK and Europe.
We've converted hundreds of people to sustainable, minimal-waste alternatives while stopping thousands of plastic bottles from ending up in our oceans. We are very proud of all we've achieved!
But why stop there? To truly promote sustainable living and to have the biggest impact I thought, why not teach everyone how to make these products for themselves? And so the School of sutainbale beauty has been born!
Whether you're new to soapmaking, an active hobbyist, or if you're looking for natural and sustainable alternatives for your hair, body and home, then you've come to the right place!
If you've already decided you would like to find out more then don't hesitate and contact me directly today!
