Made on the Chalk offers wholesome soaps handmade in small batches using 100% natural ingredients. I have also lovingly curated a collection of tools for non-toxic cleaning; as I truly believe our homes can be havens of wellness.
The pristine and beautiful chalk streams and downland of the Test Valley, Hampshire, have inspired the ethos of conscious simplicity.

ECO CLEANING TOOLS
INGREDIENTS, MATERIALS AND SUSTAINABILITY
Our skin absorbs whatever we put on it, and that is exactly why we should ask what is in the products we bring into our homes. My handmade soaps do not contain any harmful preservatives, artificial fragrances or colours, palm oil, micas, sodium lauryl sulfate or sodium laureth sulfate, parabens or petrochemicals.
Instead I only use natural things such as clays, herbs, roots and essential oils to colour and fragrance the soaps. I grow and forage for many of the botanicals, and I garden organically forgoing the use of pesticides or artificial fertilisers.
In a similar vein I offer beautiful cleaning tools made from natural and recycled materials so we can effectively clean our homes without using harsh and toxic cleaning products.
With all the packaging I aim to keep the plastic to an absolute minimum, and using instead recyclable and biodegradable papers, cardboards, wood shavings and paper tape.
I believe we should try and give back when we can, so each month I donate a collection of products to my local women's crisis centre to be given to women in need.
Finally my workshop is powered by 100% green and renewable energy and every product is lovingly handmade in small batches. All these things and more are the ways Made on the Chalk tries to tread lightly on the earth.
