Soap manufacturing in Ratan

In the small coastal village of Ratan in Västerbotten, with the sea and nature and the environment steeped in culture and history as sources of inspiration, I create my cold-stirred soaps. I produce them using old artisan methods, but with renewed knowledge and with natural and organic ingredients. // Malin

Artisan manufacturing

Our handmade eco soap is so much more than just a soap. It is a craft that we have developed with care, and a versatile product that can replace many cleaning products at home and our spare time.

The craft method we use is called cold-stirred soap. The artisan soap is moisturising with its naturally formed glycerine, and it is nourishing with a choice of deep-acting oils and the super-greasing process.
