The Soap Co. Heads to John Lewis



In time for the busy Christmas period, The Soap Co. is now available in selected John Lewis & Partners department stores nationwide.

Its eco and bee-friendly collection is vegan and biodegradable, and available in three fragrances: Geranium & Rhubarb, Wild Nettle & Sage and Mulberry & Amber. Furthermore, 100% natural Rose, Uplift and Detox bath oils are included alongside three remarkable gift sets: Rose Oil Duo, Geranium & Rhubarb Hand Gift Duo and a Mixed Body Gift Trio.

Camilla Marcus-Dew, Co-Founder of The Soap Co. said: “The fact that John Lewis & Partners have selected The Soap Co.’s Eco & Bee-Friendly collection to sit on their shelves alongside well-established luxury brands is a huge endorsement. It firmly positions us in the high-end retail sector and clearly illustrates that luxury, ethical beauty with measurable social impact has hit the mainstream.

“Our goal is to create meaningful employment that changes people’s lives for the better, and to create ripple effects through the beauty industry and beyond. Thank you John Lewis & Partners for joining the movement to address disability unemployment and underemployment in the UK.”

The Soap Co. creates employment opportunities for those who are blind, disabled or otherwise disadvantaged. 80% of the staff at their East London base and traditional workshop in the Lake District have a disability or long-term health problem and they are empowered to build their skills, confidence and independence in a friendly and supportive work environment, including learning. We aim for a 50% transition to new roles outside the organisation with all profits going back into providing jobs and training,

The Soap Co. collection is available on John Lewis online, where 50% of total John Lewis sales are achieved and in store at their Cambridge, Welwyn Garden City, Reading and Southampton sites, with an ambition for a wider national rollout in 2019.
