Hi everyone!

With the increasing demand for health conscious, sustainable products, we've been working on a new product over lockdown called eco felted soap. It's a NZ made triple milled coconut and olive oil based bar encased in Corriedale wool sourced from Ashburton.

The Corriedale wool encasing our eco bar is gently exfoliating and extends the lifetime of the bar. Each bar lasts over 4 weeks. With no added artificial fragrances, synthetic chemicals or colours our bars are environmentally friendly and all materials are biodegradable.

We've used ingredients backed by scientific evidence to provide the most skin beneficial palm oil-free soap.

This eco felted soap is designed for those with sensitive skin and skin allergies. If you're not a fan of using petroleum based body washes and scrub, give us a go :)

Felted Soap. Our alternative to body wash.

Hi everyone!

With all the emphasis on hand-washing these days, we thought it would be a good time to share our story with you.

My partner and I were looking for a totally natural and gentle cleanser without the use of liquid detergent body wash. We found that the detergents in body washes made our skin dry and itchy while soap seemed to be far gentler (and natural!).

After our switch, what we did miss was the rich lather and scrub you get from using a loofah and a big dollop of body wash! The soap bars got used up quickly and became a slippery, soggy mess.

And that started our mission to find a better way.

We shopped around but couldn’t find anything that suited us. So, we decided to take matters into our own hands. We tried a few different things but success came after wrapping a bar of soap in wool and felting it under warm water.

Not only did the soap lather through the wool, it provided a gentle scrub, the bar lasted for ages and no mushy soapy mess in the shower!

Victorious, we decided that we couldn't keep this to ourselves. This was when Bruntwood Lane was born. We began hand felting bars and selling them at weekend markets. Those who hadn't heard of it (which was everyone) were intrigued by the idea and gave it a go.

The feedback was tremendously positive. And we’ve continued ever since!

A bar will typically last for 4-6 weeks so, if you’re starting to run out of your felted wool soap, don’t worry! We've continued to hand-craft our felted soap here in Tauranga over this last month to help kiwis stay clean with quality felted soap made from local ingredients.

And if you haven't yet, give felted soap a go!
