About Liz Merritt

Award winning Soaps, Natural Skincare & Hair products handmade in Dorset.

Their soaps are naturally made using a traditional cold process, with high quality Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Castor and Olive Oil. Lytchett Bay Soaps use Essential Oils in my soaps with their wonderful skin health properties. They keep the ingredients simple, (reducing risk of allergies) and the quality high, using organic, fairly traded and sustainably sourced products.

The packaging is either recyclable, recycled or compostable ‘plastic’, made from starch. Many of their soaps are Vegan too.

Why did you start making your products?

I started making skin and hair care products after becoming ill and noticing that some of the mass produced cosmetics were making my skin, hair and general health worse.

What is the best thing someone has said about your products?

That they have noticed improvements in their skin aesthetically and in condition.

What is your favourite product/collection, and why?

The shampoo bars. They are my own recipe, they are fantastic on your hair, lesve your scalp healthy, are great to travel with and last for ages!

How does your local area impact what you make?

We have a lot of runners, cyclists and walkers, we make a lot of foot remedies!

How do you make your products more sustainable?

We never use single use plastic. Our packages are compostable or we use tins that can be reused or recycled. We even offer refills locally.
