“Natural” is our passion; Skin is our thing!
A Little about us…
Its plain and simple.. we love what we do! And that is to create natural handmade Soaps and bath and body products from the most natural and organic ingredients! And.. of course, we create each and every product with the intention to use it ourselves and for our families in our everyday lives!
Located in the beautiful clean and green German Township of Hahndorf, The Hahndorf Soap Factory is a passionate follow on from our sister store also located in Hahndorf called 3 Wishes Candle Barn. Starting out 7 years ago on our Journey to produce the most natural essential oil aromatherapy candles and home fragrance, we were lead to extend our product range into Natural hand made bath and body products. Customer demand for a more healthy and natural skincare bath & body product alternative, lead us to open the doors of Hahndorf Soap Factory in October 2016.
Our priority and focus is to source the most natural and organic ingredients from around Australia and the world to use to make our products. We make no compromise on producing the highest quality of products. We are proud to claim that at Hahndorf soap Factory, we do EVERYTHING in store, from scratch! We create the perfect recipes for each and every product that we make from Raw ingredients such as clays, essential oils, dried flowers & herbs, coconut oil, sunflower oil and goats milk.. just to name a few! We then carefully by hand, package and label all of our products on site in Hahndorf ready for our retail and online store!
Your Skin is a Sponge – let it soak up all things natural!
The benefits of using handmade soap made from Natural & organic ingredients……
Most people actively try to minimise the amount of toxins that enter their body. They eat good food, they drink purified water, they breathe purified air, and some even take added measures to detoxify their bodies! However, what many people don’t realise is that toxins can be absorbed through your skin. Given the industrious process used to produce many of the commonly known commercial soaps, cosmetics and bath and body products, it’s not a surprise that most contain questionable chemicals such as -sulphates, parabens, synthetic ingredients, fillers, dyes and questionable substances that many of us would be better off avoiding. If you want to minimise the “casual toxins” you and your family are exposed to, Handmade natural and organic soap is the way to go!
Why Use Organic Soap & Natural bath and body Products?
Many people have sensitive skin that doesn’t respond well to chemically laden soap & body products. In fact it can even damage and dry out your skin causing it to itch and feel tight and flaky.
By using our handmade organic and natural soap, we are very confident that you will be able to avoid, or at least significantly reduce, the skin problems that are caused by irritating chemical ingredients. In fact, we guarantee that your skin will feel hydrated, soft and supple.. you may even find you dont have to worry about moisturising as much anymore thanks to the wonderful hydrating benefits of coconut & sunflower we use to make our soaps!
At the Hahndorf Soap Factory, our handmade Organic and natural soap contains ingredients that are not, and have not been produced with, herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticides and are made with mostly natural and organic ingredients wherever humanly possible! It’s invaluable for those who suffer from chemical sensitivities and want to limit toxins being absorbed through the bloodstream from using personal care products.
Even if you don’t break out in a full body rash, the chemicals used to make conventional and mass produced soap will most assuredly dry your skin, leaving it tight, flaky and feeling unloved! Organic and naturally based soaps contain glycerine which is a highly moisturising plant based ingredient we use to make all our soaps at the Hahndorf Soap Factory.
Unfortunately, many people wait until itchy, dry skin is a problem before making the switch to natural and organic soaps and bath and body products! At Hahndorf Soap factory you will find an exclusive range of products suitable for all skin types that contain no nasties, only natural goodness as mother nature intended for your skin! Get ready for the best skin of your life!
Other benefits of using natural and Organic Soaps and Body care products.
Using organic soap has other benefits. First off, most organic soaps are cruelty-free, meaning they’re not tested on animals, and on that note you can rest assured that none of our products at Hahndorf Soap Factory have ever been or will ever been tested on animals!
Purchasing natural and organic products is better for the environment too. Organic ingredients are grown without chemicals and pesticides, both of which can pollute the water supply and environment.Feel good knowing you are doing your part to help our planet by using natural and organic Bath and body products!

The Handmade process – We wouldn’t have it any other way!
We have always been passionate about ingredients from mother nature, from the earth and from healthy and natural sources. We love what we do and wouldn’t have it any other way! although Hand-making each and every product that you see in our store takes more time, labour and attention to detail, we prefer the hand made method because we can put our love, passion and creativity into our products, unlike any massive piece of machinery in a commercial factory! And there is something truly special and satisfying about creating and making something with love by hand!
