Soap Cafe is the brain child of islander Charlene 'Charly' Mercieca; an avid researcher of alternative remedies, a qualified beautician, product designer, herbalist, make up artist, a spa consultant and lover of all things handmade and well made. Her passion for natural and holistic alternatives fired up at the age of 16 . At a tender age , she had already experienced varies ailments including eczema, severe aleopecia, IBS, extreme weight loss and weight gain - resulting in ill health. When all conventional treatments failed and she had nothing else to loose, she was introduced to the beautiful world of holistic therapies...and 13 years later, Soap Cafe was created; bringing together holistic health, beauty, art and design.
Today Soap Cafe produces over 50 different handmade soap for all skin types and ailments, and over varies lotions, balms and scrubs for a healthier more beautiful skin, hair care products, men care products and baby products. Most of our products are made with local ingredients such as olive oil, goat's milk and puree's of seasonal local fruit such as prickly pear and pumpkin to name a few. We mostly use the cold process method- is a traditional way of making soap which retains all the goodness of our luscious ingredients. Our items are freshly made on a daily bases ensuring that everything is of the highest quality.
Our ethos is ; Only produce and use goods that are beneficial for human, animal and planet. Choosing toxic free products means causing less damage to our planet and protecting our own individual health. None of our products are tested on animals or use animal fat, and when using products such as palm oil, we make sure that the raw materials are ethically sourced.
