Becoming a B Corp
Being part of the B Corp family means the world to us. It means we’re part of a group of businesses who put the wellbeing of the world, before profit.
Being certified as a B Corporation is a big moment for us, as every part of the business has been assessed to make sure we are doing our best for the planet, our people, and you. But ultimately, we couldn’t be where we are without you! We just wanted to say thank you once again for your continued support. We’re reaching so many more people in the high street thanks to our amazing customers who make a green, healthy, conscious decision to choose our soaps.
Although more businesses are making the conscious decision to improve their social and environmental standing, the term B Corporation still seems to be unknown to the majority of consumers. Read on to find out more…
So what does being a B Corporation actually mean?
Now we’re a B Corp, we’re part of a global group of like-minded businesses that meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. We’re now officially members of a collective of businesses that are trying to build a more inclusive and sustainable economy and together, we can be a force for good.
As B Corporations, we believe:
That we must be the change we seek in the world.
That all business ought to be conducted as if people and place mattered.
That, through their products, practices, and profits, businesses should aspire to do no harm and benefit all.
To do so requires that we act with the understanding that we are each dependent upon another and thus responsible for each other and future generations.
We value our people & the planet over profit.
We rigidly believe the business of a business is to improve the world. Since 2008, Emma our founder has been on a mission to bring the bar soap back and rid bathrooms from unnecessary synthetics and plastic bottles. We now have four key brands, all encompassing the same ethos, so you can have a clean conscience as they wash.
Ensuring diversity, inclusivity & flexibility in the workplace.
We believe things always work better when we work together. So, we put as much energy into building good relationships with each other, our suppliers, and the local community, as we do our soaps and our customers. We love what we do and we have fun doing it.
Making sure that when you buy one of our soaps you are given the best customer experience possible.
Free from detergents, SLS, sulphates, alcohol, parabens, sorbates, silicones & synthetic preservatives; our all-natural skincare products gently work in harmony with your skin, making them perfect for all skin types and ages.
Bringing joy to our community, both local & further afield.
Very early on in creating Little Soap Company, Emma realised this wasn’t just a soap making business but also an opportunity to educate on the wider issues surrounding it. The environmental issues of palm oil and deforestation are close to her heart, as well as a passion for British small business and manufacturing.
Making sure that our products & processes have as little impact on the environment as possible.
We’re passionate about making sure that every ingredient that goes into our bars and the materials we use in our packaging is sustainably sourced. That’s why we’re passionate supporters for the use of Sustainable Palm Oil, we’re members of the Vegan Society, and our products are certified Leaping Bunny Cruelty Free.
