Find out more about Australian Botanical Soap and the benefits of the key ingredients that they use to make their products and what they don’t use. 

How did Australian Botanical Soap its start? 

In early 2000, the choice of soap on the supermarket shelf was limited; most bars were created from a tallow (animal fat) base and the soap lather was created by artificial foaming agents such as SLS (Sodium Laurel Sulphate).

Founder of ABS, John Apperley, saw a gap in the market for a chunky Pure Plant Oil soap and filled it.

Australian Botanical Soap was formed and created a natural base soap bar that is long-lasting with its own rich and creamy lather, not relying on chemicals to do the work.

From humble beginnings selling in local market stalls, ABS has grown to where we are today, found around the globe.

What inspired you to work with goat’s milk?

In addition to the lactic acid, goat’s milk contains fatty acids that can help repair the skin barrier, probiotics that can encourage the growth of normal skin flora, and natural vitamin A can help gently exfoliate. We blend our Goats Milk & Soya Bean soap with goat’s milk from the pristine farmlands of Southeastern Victoria, formulating a soap that works well for those looking for a gentle cleansing soap bar that will leave skin feeling nourished and moisturized.

What are the key ingredients in your Australian Botanical Soap?

Key Ingredients in all Australian Botanical Soap Bars:
Sustainably Sourced Pure Plant Oils
Raw Organic Shea Butter


Just as important as what we put into our soaps, is what we leave out.

Our natural soap base contains NO:

Tetrasodium etidronate (EDTA), Parabens or Editronic acid (HEDP) used as artificial preservatives
Phthalates used as lubricants and softeners
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), used to artificially create soap lather
Propylene Glycol (PEGs), used as thickeners and softeners


What are the benefits of these key ingredients?

Sustainably Sourced Pure Plant Oils (Palm Oils) have a high fatty acid content which helps to produce glycerin in the saponification process. Palm oil is a rich source of vitamins A and E and minerals, and is a great way to hydrate, moisturize, and protect skin. It also produces soap with a long shelf life and rich lather.

Raw Organic Shea Butter is obtained from the nuts of tin the fruits of the Karite tree and is used as an emollient. Emollients work by trapping moisture in your skin and forming a projective layer so moisture can’t escape. Shea Butter also contains high amounts of triglycerides that are effective as skin-softening ingredients.

What are your preferred plant oils to work with?

We use only sustainably sourced palm oils in our soaps.

Is this soap for all skin types? 

Yes, it is!

How soon can people see the benefits after using the Australian Botanical Soap?

Most people notice softer, more moisturized skin after only a few uses. Sustained use should increase the benefits over time.
