Straightaway, when you use this soap, you will know from the feel and texture this is true wholesome soap like no other.

The construction of One Village Soap is radically different. Here is the way to properly clean and do good for your skin.

Instead of «tallow» (animal fats), instead of SLS or the latest chemical compounds (dare to study the ingredients list on soap made by our competitors), instead of artificial fragrances – choose triple-milled One Village Soap.

Premium soap with more goodness and free from dubious ingredients.
Sandalwood or Neem.

Beautiful soap! Nothing else compares."
– D W, Bristol

I have a passion for really good soap and this gorgeous soap is the best I have had."
– F A, Prestatyn

All natural ingredients.
100% vegetarian; 100% vegan.

Each of our two soaps has a structure unique to itself.

Unlike most soap makers, we do not remove the glycerine that is formed within our good soap-making process. The beneficial glycerine (entirely from non-animal sources) remains in our soap to enhance the moisturizing qualities.

Our soap balances a Ph value between 9.7-10.5 (to ensure effective cleaning), is rich in glycerine (for excellent moisturizing) and has a very high content of beneficial natural vegetable oils (read more about those below).

This soap does not include sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a known skin and eye irritant probably present in most other soaps. And certainly no triclosan, no antibacterial chemicals, no ammonium – and no microbeads (those tiny plastic skin exfoliants that are polluting the rivers, lakes and oceans). As well as avoiding all that, our soap is also entirely free from artificial perfume compounds.

I must say that your soaps are just unbelievable! Probably one of the best products I've bought in the last years. The two kinds of soap that you sell are both wonderful to my previously dry and very problematic skin. Being them both biodegradable and animal friendly they are just what I've been searching for years."
– G B, London

The best soap I have ever used.
Fantastic; absolutely wonderful"
– K A, Inverness

My GP recommended this soap for my itchy skin, and I think it is brilliant!"
– G L, Gairloch/Geôrrloch, Scotland

Without doubt, the best soap in the world: feels wonderful with real sandalwood scent and lasts for ages."
– K W, Haverfordwest




Sandalwood soap

One Village Sandalwood is made by combining 80/20 two nourishing vegetable oils – rice bran and distilled coconut oil. We then add generous helpings of both authentic sandalwood essence and fine sandalwood powder.


Expensive authentic sandalwood powder and oil

For the skin, sandalwood is soothing and revitalizing, and is an effective antiseptic. Holistically, sandalwood fragrance is a natural energizer.


Sandalwood soap ingredients: Rice bran oil (hydrogenated), Coconut oil, Water, Glycerine, Sandalwood oil extract (enhanced), Sandalwood powder. Less than 0.002%: Citric acid, Sodium hydroxide, Zinc oxide, Sodium chloride.
How we make the soap

One Village Sandalwood soap:
article #12682 · Barcode 5060406886825

ANDALWOOD has grown in India for at least 2,500 years and the tree is one of the oldest known sources of perfume. It is mentioned in many ancient Indian texts.
Sandalwood trees flourish from sea level up to 1,800 metres, and trees growing on stony or gravel soils are the ones with the best fragrance. Also, the fragrance increases as trees grow older. Our sandalwood comes from Tamilnadu, where the government has encouraged new sandalwood plantations. All our sandalwood comes from government managed sources. Many people depend on sandalwood for their livelihoods. Artificial sandalwood fragrance (from chemicals) is often used in products by commercial companies – but the qualities of artificial sandalwood are not the same as authentic sandalwood used in One Village soap and incense.
We think that it is always better to use authentic sandalwood rather than an artificial chemical that tries merely to imitate the smell of the real thing.
In any case, the aroma is only one part of the bounty this wood shares with us. But because nature never allows two pieces of sandalwood to be precisely identical, it might sometimes be possible to detect variation in colour as well as the intensity of sandalwood fragrance.

I have used vegetable oil soap for many years, usually Body Shop, but your sandalwood soap is a revelation."
– S P, East Finchley

All of my friends and family are getting sandalwood soap for Christmas – the most gorgeous soap I've ever experienced!"
– L M McC, Widnes

Previously bought your soap in a local farmers'
market. – Best sandalwood soap we've ever had."
– W R, Rochester

I was pleased as punch to get the package from you the day after I ordered it. It smells divine and I love it. As a frequent traveller to India I am used to neem tree products and the Mysore sandalwood soap – but One Village products are superior by a long chalk! I wash my hair with the neem bar and it lathers up and rinses off very well. To say I am pleased with the product would be an under-statement. Your soap – I use no other!"
– D F, Seaton

I purchased your sandalwood soap in a shop in Edinburgh and fell in love."
– T C, Wakefield
I can't find anything comparable here in the States. I LOVE your soap. Great product!"
– G A F, Panama,
New York

The two soaps sandalwood and neem are absolutely lovely. They have a wonderful smell and texture and I think the neem is already improving the mild psoriasis on my hands.
    I have already recommended them to two of my friends – one a vegan and another with a dislike of 'commercial soaps'. Your organization obviously helps less privileged communities than ours and that sounds like an extremely good idea; long may it continue.
    It was my lucky day when I spotted your advertisement."
– P W, Hindhead



Neem soap

One Village Neem is almost 50% neem oil from the seeds of the neem tree (Azadirachta indica). – Neem: the natural oil known in India as «the village pharmacy» because of its far-reaching benefits for skin and for wellbeing. Neem is one of nature's truly remarkable oils; it has been valued for centuries.

To best retain all its natural qualities, our neem oil is extracted from the seeds by pressing. Our oil is then carefully filtered but it is not refined.

In our neem soap we also add mohua oil (from Bassia latifolia) (more than 12% of the soap).
The healing properties of this natural oil help to restore skin flexibility.

Our careful blend results in a wonderful soap for all skin. Both neem and mohua oils are rich in nourishments and this composition can help protect skin from infections.

The universal soap for everyone.

Neem is especially recommended to work against eczema, acne, and problem dry skin, including situations where other soaps are not normally acceptable. Some describe neem as «the defeater of all ailments»! Neem is nature’s comforting moisturizer.

Our neem soap also includes palm and coconut oils, and nearly 2% pure natural citronella – a lemon-scented oil that has anti-bacterial, anti-septic, and other benefits. It is an aromatic energizer. In the tropics, natural citronella is also appreciated as an effective insect repellent.

All the palm oil used in One Village neem soap is grown in Tamilnadu, India – relatively local to where the soap is made.
Ours is not rain forest palm oil.


Neem soap ingredients: Neem oil, Palm oil, Mohua oil, Coconut oil, Coconut oil extract, Water, Glycerine, Natural Citronella. Less than 0.002%: Citric acid, Sodium hydroxide, Zinc oxide, Sodium chloride.   How we make the soap

I have been suffering for years with skin problems and have tried all the so-called gentle soaps to no avail. I have been to my doctor, again to no avail. However, since using this neem soap all my problems have disappeared. A real miracle product which should be recommended by all hospitals and doctor's surgeries."
– B R M, Chipperfield, Hertfordshire

Your neem soap was recommended to me by someone who had suffered from a serious skin rash for many years and found your neem soap cleared all in a very short time. I too have suffered five years from a most painful rash and seen numerous dermatologists who have prescribed all kinds of skin lotions and creams to no avail. By contrast, your neem soap has amazingly freed me from all this unpleasant rash and discomfort. I thoroughly recommend it."
– K M, Aberystwyth

Please send me more One Village Neem soap. I have found it extremely good. The skin on my face has ceased to be dry and flaky. I am very pleased."

On holiday I saw this soap in a shop and thought of my sister who for many years has been plagued with psoriasis. She has used the soap and the difference is phenomenal, so I am now buying her more."
– M W, Kilmarnock

HAIR CARE TIP!
Try One Village Neem Soap instead of liquid shampoo to nurture and clean your hair and scalp.

Use One Village Neem soap regularly – instead of
shampoo – to reduce and perhaps eliminate dandruff and unwelcome guests in the hair.

(No need for conditioner.)


·····································
I bought this neem soap from a shop and have used it as a shampoo – and it is BRILLIANT!
It gets the hair literally squeaky clean and makes a superb lather. Please send me more."
– K C, Halifax

I love this soap. My skin is not itchy and my hair feels clean and wonderful."
– A G B, Elloughton, Yorkshire

Have used this soap for eczema on my hands and have had excellent results. It also makes the rest of my body feel lovely and worked a treat when I used it for washing my hair. It also put a stop to the midges biting me in the hot weather. I love the smell too!"
– L M R, Lincoln

I am re-ordering neem soap having purchased some for my daughter and myself. We are absolutely delighted: we both suffer with skin problems and have experienced a noticable improvement in a very short time. It is excellent."
– E M H, Brierley Hill

I love your neem soap, my whole family uses it and it's great for my son's eczema. We also wash our hair with it, and it's always left soft and shiny. I even use it to wash my dogs who have skin conditions and it keeps the fleas at bay. Such a great product."
– W L J, Macclesfield
····································
Instead of relying on the smell (most probably artificial anyway), judge soap by its content!

Compare our ingredients with the soap you usually use. Expensive natural ingredients and careful construction results in seriously top-quality soaps consistent with ayurvedic principles. The difference is noticeable in the feel of the soap and the benefits the oils bring to the skin.

Unnatural chemicals, artificial scents and colourings, can all be absorbed by your skin – but these are totally excluded from our soap.

With 125grams per bar, the quantity is generous (125 grams = approx 4.4 ounces).

Wholesome contents are reflected in the extremely good-looking packs. The soap comes in an unusual shape, is contained in a butter paper sleeve then wrapped in hand made colour-coded textured paper.


No animal content.
Not tested on animals.
VEGAN SOAP.
Registered with the Vegan Society.

Excellent soap...really softens the skin.
I will never go back to sickly sweet harsh chemical soaps."
– M H, Torquay

This is the best soap I have ever used!
It doesn't dry your skin. I keep buying it to give as small gifts for my best friends!"
– K S, Stockholm

Having nice soap is one of my indulgences – and this soap is very definitely a nice soap. The feel and texture of it is wonderful and the sandalwood scent is divine; I am ordering again."
– P T, Morpeth

This neem soap is lovely, so gentle and kind for my skin. It leaves my skin feeling supple. It also helps dry up the red/raw areas of skin and doesn't irritate my skin where it is cracked. I don't have to use prescribed emollients (sticky and rather foul smelling) when I wash with this neem soap. I love the earthy, wholesome smell. I couldn't go back to using any other soap."
– S L L, Edinburgh
