About The Maker

Welcome to Good Neighbour Soap. I am Meredith, the maker behind the products you can find here. I have a passion for making beautiful skin care that makes a big impact on your skin but not a negative one on the environment. Nature provides amazing ingredients for beautiful healthy skin, so that’s all I use in any of the products you buy from Good Neighbour Soap.

The name Good Neighbour Soap means more than just looking after our physical neighbourhood, but it’s a social responsibility to make smart decisions about the health of the environment. It means I don’t package products in plastic bottles that end up in land fill, or bubble mailers to ship your products. It means I use fair trade ingredients that help the communities they are harvested in, use recyclable paper for our labels, and glass bottles or aluminum tins for our products. The bike on our soaps is a symbol of our responsibility to make decisions that don’t negatively affect our environment.

Good Neighbour soaps are made with quality ingredients that are plant-based;  plants, flowers, fruits, vegetables, shells, roots and seeds! The base of many of the soaps includes rich creamy fair-trade shea butter, raw thick coconut oil, rich, highly emollient olive oil and always clays, botanical infusions and 100% essential oils -- never fragrance oils anywhere!

Every bar of Good Neighbour soap is not only carefully handmade following traditional cold-process soap making, but hand-cut and planed to be smoother on your skin and have a luxurious feel. 

Shea butter is such a large proportion of the recipe and makes such a creamy bar of soap that keeps your skin nourished all day. If you have been using grocery store brand soap that actually removes the naturally occurring and hydrating glycerine for use in it’s other lotion products, you will notice a big difference when you make the switch to natural soap with all the richness of it’s ingredients. You’ll wonder why you put up with dry skin for so long!!

The Good Neighbour story is more about soap though, and there are more products added all the time. There's a line of rich creamy body butters that are both preservative-free and amazing at sealing in your skin’s natural hydration. Lip balms  created with thick, nutrient-rich ingredients like slow-made solar infused calendula oil, fair-trade cocoa butter and local beeswax to make an amazing smelling, super rich lip care. And perhaps most popular are the beautiful facial serums created with different skin types in mind.
