New Suma essential oil soap range, Available from the 1st September..

We’ve used an age-old traditional method that means each bar retains all of the soap’s naturally released glycerine. It’s a method which helps produce a wonderfully natural moisturising soap, with a rich creamy lather which is kind and nourishing to even the most sensitive of skins.
