Werfzeep: Organic soap, handmade with ingredients from their own forest and garden - one piece of love for your skin!

Werfzeep* is a traditional organic soap factory in Utrecht that makes deliciously mild, nourishing shower soaps and hair soap, full of nourishing oils and naturally occurring glycerin. Plant-based, organic and made with love in the traditional way.
All soaps are made by hand, without synthetic additives, plastics, palm oil or animal fats.

During a trip to Canada she and Laurens stayed at a family farmhouse, where they produced their own soap using a big wooden ladle and a huge pan. The wooden house smelled wonderful and Evelien immediately got stuck into making soap. To her surprise, this handmade soap, which was found next to every sink and shower, was soft and caring for her skin. For many years Evelien had no interest in soap; it was something she avoided as it made her eczema worse. But this soap turned out to be very different to anything she had ever tried before.

She began to develop her soaps in an old vaulted cellar on Utrecht’s Oudegracht canal. Now, more than 9 years later, they work with a growing team in their beautiful canalside studio in the Westerkade.

Why use natural soap?

Plant oil-based soap is completely different to factory-made soap which includes refined fatty acids, and additives such as foam improvers, synthetic perfumes and preservatives. It also has the glycerin skimmed off, which is the best bit, providing all the lovely moisturising elements. This discovery was enough for Evelien to become completely absorbed in artisanal soap making, experimenting with hundred of different ingredients and combinations.

Why buy soap from Werfzeep?

Werfzeep works with oils of the highest quality: vegetable, organic and food grade (suitable for consumption) - even the essential oils. That is why the soaps of Werfzeep are still full of beneficial substances. Werfzeep works with growers who share the same conviction for their ingredients. They also pick part of the plants themselves in the Wickenburgh forest. There, the soap team also maintains its own soap-herb garden and harvests various ingredients that have been growing there for centuries.

Werfzeep never works with palm oil, animal fats or irritants such as perfume oil, dyes or foam improvers. Very interesting for sensitive skins!

Werfzeep is good for your skin, nature and for the producers who grow their ingredients worldwide. In short, one piece of love for your skin!
