My name is Carol Allen and I make Llanvalley Soap which is pure and Natural; it is made with fresh milk from my goats Lily and Milly…
…who are free to spend their days foraging the meadows and hedgerows of our smallholding situated on the banks of the Dee valley near Llangollen in North Wales.
The soap is self coloured and not overly scented as it is totally free of artificial colours or preservatives. It is fragranced with essential oils and local herbs and flowers.
Being aware of the devastating effects that industry can have on our planet we avoid using ingredients harvested from endangered habitats.
Animal Welfare is important to me; the soap is cruelty free and is not tested on animals.
Goat’s milk is renowned for its rich lather and skin nourishing qualities.
Coconut oil softens the skin, protects it against damage and promotes healing. It protects against free-radicals and helps to keep connective tissues strong and supple, and in some cases it might even restore damaged or diseased skin.
Grapefruit seed oil is added to the soap to act as a natural preservative, it gives the soap a refreshing citrus aroma, is cleansing and balancing and is particularly effective for congested pores and oily skin.
Carefully selected essential oils are added to each batch of soap for their beneficial qualities and natural fragrance
Handpicked Flora and Fauna are added to colour, fragrance and embellish the soaps.
I do a small range of Aqueduct Soaps inspired by the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which greets me each morning as I open my blinds.
Aqueduct Soap is made using the traditional cold process method, and is embellished with plants and flowers that grow naturally, and tumble from gardens along the canal towpath.
I also make Goats milk and Honey soap, and all-natural lip and body balms using the finest locally-produced honey and beeswax….
….and small quirky knitted items from naturally dyed fleece produced by Angora goats from the Berwyn Mountains.
