Portsmouth was once known for its soap making and restorative sea bathing. Samantha of Southsea Bathing Hut is bringing that heritage back to life, with natural skincare inspired by coastal beauty.
A proud resident of Southsea, Portsmouth, Samantha taught herself to make soap using the traditional ‘cold process’ method. Her family and friends loved the little bars they’d get for birthdays and in their Christmas stockings.
Then, in 2014 Samantha read about Portsmouth’s long-lost heritage as a soap-making city and decided to bring it back.
From humble beginnings three years ago on Samantha's kitchen table, Southsea Bathing Hut has grown steadily to now include over 30 products from hand soap to facial skincare.
All products are lovingly handmade in small batches from totally unique and original recipes, using only the highest quality natural ingredients. All products are vegan, cruelty free and have been independently chemically certified as free from any nasties.
So you can pamper away with confidence.
Meet Samantha at Living Crafts at Hatfield House 17 – 20 June 2021
