New UK natural soap player wins packaging awards
The soap products packaging features a label that has won a UK packaging award and an International Packaging award, FINAT.
The design is by David Smith, who, according to Ecosoapia, is regarded as one of the best calligrapher in the world.
The soap itself has won a Natural Products award, and was voted by the Sunday Times the best organic body care product.
We caught up with the brand’s founder, Steven Chasan, to take a closer look at the growing brand.
Ecosoapia: brand profile
What is the defining ethos or idea behind your brand?
It was my grandfathers formula, and as it was so natural we wanted to recreate it.
Going back to setting up the company: can you explain any major challenges/hurdles you had to overcome?
It is difficult to formulate without stabilizers and parabens and keep the product stable. This was the biggest challenge.
Can you describe a major high point in your story so far?
We have recently got an investment partner on board.
They all sell well, but the unscented soap sells the least.
Most exciting trends you’re seeing in the industry for natural beauty brands?
We see more and more people switching to organic and natural products
Are you expecting any key challenges or opportunities in the coming period? (the next 1 - 3 years)
We are working on a project to eliminate plastics from our packaging
