ABOUT US
Ethical social enterprise and sustainability

Soapworks’ founding principles remain key to our business today

Our beginnings

The Body Shop entrepreneur Anita Rodick established Soapworks in 1988 as a specialist soap manufacturer.

Anita had a profound belief in providing employment and opportunity to local communities, helping them to thrive in an otherwise challenging landscape. Her work in helping to protect the environment through producing eco-conscious personal care was groundbreaking.

Our development

This approach to enterprise and sustainability continues to lie at the core of our business, strengthened by the ownership of our parent company Daabon.

The Daabon Group’s commitment to progressive practices has positively impacted environmental and social concerns on a global scale. Daabon’s world-wide operation combined with Soapworks’ specialist knowledge and expertise, brings huge benefits to our customers, employees and the wider community.
