About Us


Hello dear friends

I would like to wish you all a wonderful, happy, healthy and successful 2022!
I wish you many creative and productive hours of soaping! Please note that The Soap Barn re-opens online and in store on 13 January 2022

This message from me is happy and also a little sad, more difficult to write than I anticipated. The news is that after 18 years of living, breathing, thinking, formulating, inventing, building and driving the business I started in 2004, the time has come for me to retire. I have completely devoted 1/3 of my life to this business and serving my customers, now I need to do some different things with my life. There are so many books to read, places to visit, things to learn and study and I am excited to be doing all those things now. Of course I will miss you all and saying good-bye to something I spent years building is not easy. However, without change we do not grow and I feel it's my time to grow in different ways now.

The Soap Barn has a new owner now, my friend, Eric Slater, and I know you will always receive great service from him. He brings new energy, new ideas to the business and of course, the huge news is that he is re-opening the physical store.

Please remember that we moved shop just before lockdown to NO 90 7th Avenue Edenvale. The new shop I built is gorgeous with lots of safe and secure parking. Normal trading at The Soap Barn resumes on 13th January 2022 and trading hours will be from 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and 8.30 am to 1.00pm Saturdays.

I wish you all happiness and excellent health
With all my love
