Our Products

Handmade in Yorkshire, Cosy Cottage Soap offers an expanding range of plastic and palm oil free soap, bath and body products, completely free from artificial additives.

Our passion is creating ethical skincare which is as great for the environment as it is for our customers.

Every ingredient is sourced locally as often as possible and can be found somewhere in nature. We give nature a helping hand in return by using recyclable or compostable packaging. Our small batch manufacturing process produces minimal waste.

The gentle essential oil fragrances we use are created from steam distilled flowers, petals or fruit. We do not add water to our creams or balms so everything is beautifully long lasting.

All of our products are cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians. We also offer a growing range of vegan products.

Ethical skincare for all.

Our Story

Cosy Cottage Soap’s story begins in the kitchen laboratory of a 350-year-old cottage in Ganthorpe, Yorkshire. Yes, the Cosy Cottage is real! ​

Founder, Clara, became increasingly aware of the potentially harmful effects of additives found in many commercially produced skincare products whilst recovering from illness in 2015. ​

Using her knowledge as a qualified chemist and an Associate of the Royal College of Science, Clara began by producing soaps free from SLS, paraben, SLES and palm oils from home. It's these roots that continue to shape Cosy Cottage Soap ethos.​

The company established a closer relationship with Biovale, an organisation promoting the BioEconomy in Yorkshire and the Humber. ​

As the company has expanded, so has the team. Clara’s husband, Philip, joined in 2018 to run the production and operations. We are proud to employ a brilliant team of part-time manufacturing, marketing and sales staff. ​

In 2019, Cosy Cottage Soap moved from the York Science Park to new premises in Malton. We have now opened our retail space to customers, open Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 4:30pm. Find us here.
