The Soap Connoisseur, Refreshing Lemongrass and Lavender Soap

Soap Connoisseur

The Soap Connoisseur, Refreshing Lemongrass and Lavender Soap



We don’t usually play favourites with our soaps, but this refreshing and skin-boosting soap holds a special place in our hearts. Specially formulated by our founder, for her daughter who had dry and sensitive skin, this is the first soap that was created by The Soap Connoisseur.  This soap is sure to wash away stress and toxins from the skin. Leaving your skin feeling pampered and revitalised, this is the perfect revitalising combination wrapped into one feel-good bar of soap.

Excellent for dry, balanced, mature and "it's complicated" skin types.

Founder's story

Mahawa Kamara started her business after giving birth to her daughter. Her daughter had very sensitve skin and she decided to make soaps for her and to use oil and butters to make bathing products. She says: "...I made the first soap for my daughter and it did not irritate her skin.  I knew then that I had a product I could sell." The Soap Connoisseur has been nominated in two categories for the Black Beauty and Fashion Awards in the Best Natural Skincare Brand and Best Skin and Body Care Product.
