Glasgow Soap Company was founded is 2015 and became a family business when our son Finbar was born in 2018 and Sean left his career in dentistry, allowing us to grow the business together and spend more time as a family.
I have been an aromatherapist for 12 years and between us we hand make all of our products in small batches in our workspace in Glasgow, Scotland. We have been featured in the Glasgow Herald, No1 Magazine, The Evening Times and work closely with Glasgow Childrens’ Hospital Charity.
All of our ingredients are sustainable sourced, cruelty free and locally sourced where possible. Our products contain no parabens or sls and are suitable for sensitive skins. All are vegetarian and most are also vegan friendly. We are currently working towards reducing single use plastics and all of our soaps are wrapped in biodegradable cellophane.
We hope you like what we do and if there is anything we can help you with please pop us a wee message.
Meet the team
Ashley – Maker of pretty things
Hello! I’m Ashley and I am a qualified aromatherapist. I have used my knowledge and love of colour (and cocktails!) to create a range of products which are both fun and fancy. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them! I work mostly on running of the business and creating all our beautiful bars of soap.
Sean – Lifter of heavy things
Sean came onboard in 2018, although he has been lifting heavy stuff and listening to Ashley talk about soap for about 4 years before then. Sean makes pretty much everything else and spends a fair whack of his time cleaning up after Ashley.
Finbar – The Boss
Finbar loves to stack and sticker and count our soaps. He can frequently be seen helping Daddy with post runs and deliveries. His favourite song is Africa by Toto which he requests on a daily basis. He loves his Mummy and Daddy so much that he feels the need to wake up every few hours to remind us!
