About us

Welcome to Handmade Soaps. We’re the sisters behind it all – Mia Schoeman and Lisa Ortmann. We dreamt up this business along with our Pappa, Jan Schoeman, a.k.a. The Soapmaster. 

Together, we use the cold press method to create natural vegan soaps, infused with essential oils and natural clays. At the heart of it all, our products are inspired by shared family experiences and memories.

Every single product is proudly South African and handmade in small batches in the heart of New Hanover, KwaZulu-Natal.

With pride we hand make cruelty free, vegan products. There is also no palm oil, artificial fragrances, colourants, SLS, or paraben in our products.
