Regular readers will know that late last year, Little Soap was officially B-Corp certified- and I have to admit, we’re still pretty excited about it! Being a B-Corp brand means so much to us. Its more than a recognition of our hard work and dedication towards balancing profit and purpose. It’s about being part (a forceful part!) of a movement that is striving to drive more and more businesses to use their power for good. It’s an amazing community to be a part of, and that’s why we wanted to share some of our favourite B-Corp brands with you this week. Please support these brands if you can; as a consumer, you too have the power to drive good in this world.
Our lovely friends at Cheeky Panda are right to be very proud of their achievements and we just love them for it too. They’re Vegan Certified, officially Cruelty-Free, FSC approved and all products are dermatologically tested too. We’re talking toilet paper, yes, but we’re also talking about a life essential too- so why not make a responsible choice each time you go to the loo?
Cheeky Panda was founded by Chris and Julie, who have a simple mission to make household, baby and beauty products that are kind to you and to the planet. They want to bring sustainability to the mass market and are always working to fulfil three core goals:
Inspire- inspiring a fun, environmentally conscious and healthy lifestyle
Innovate- creating a sustainable world for future generations through innovative products
Impact- enriching people and our planet without exploiting the environment
Cheeky Panda is a subscription service with a conscience. They encourage you to buy in bulk for less deliveries and they offer free delivery plus discounts for each subscription you order. We love this idea! Choose from toilet paper, kitchen roll, bio-degradable baby wipes, tissue cubes and nappies. All products are made using naturally sustainable bamboo and for every pack sold Cheeky Panda donate to charities through their Earth, Ocean and People initiative.

Something a little different for you: Dr. Wills produce some of the best-tasting condiments we have honestly ever tried here at Little
Soap! The brand was created by Dr. Will, a real-life doctor who wanted to change the way that parents felt forced to cover their kids’ food in ketchup to get them to eat it. He knew that sugary sauces were no good, but he also knew that there wasn’t much else out there to tempt the taste buds enough to make vegetables palatable to little ones.
We needed condiments that could stand up proudly on the shelf, shouting loud about all of their natural ingredients. A solution where condiments didn’t sit heavy on the conscience and could be added with abandon. Dr. Will’s all natural condiments was created.
Dr. Wills creates sauces, mayos and dressings that contain only natural ingredients and that- most importantly- taste amazing. From classic ketchup to spicy sriracha from vegan mayo to the most divine miso tahini dressing- its safe to say we’re obsessed! All sauces are sweetened with apples and dates, so if you’re a parent looking for a kinder alternative to shop-bought ketchup, then look no further. Browse the range here.
