Finest soaps and body-care products handcrafted in Albany, WA
The perfect gift for yourself or someone special
Handcrafting high quality products
Artisan Soap Works crafts finest bath and skin care products, all lovingly and uniquely made in small batches from high quality ingredients with no two pieces exactly the same. Our environment is the inspiration for our product design, colours and scent compositions.
All our products are paraben, SLS and formaldehyde free and grey water safe. We use plant derived ingredients only with one exception, being bees wax in our lip balm and lotion bars, and we support sustainable palm oil production. As with all body-care products, please check the listing descriptions and ingredients carefully before purchase (particularly if you have allergies or sensitive skin) and discontinue use if you have any reaction.
We are currently working with Meleah Farrell Photography to update all images on our website. It's a slow process and in the meantime we would like to ask our customers for understanding for the different quality of product images.
We love creating
Artisan Soap Works is a small artisan business and located in beautiful Albany, at the south coast of Western Australia. It began when founder Katy was struggling with the harshness of commercial skin care products and needed a soap that would be kind to her family's sensitive skins. She soon was won over by the benefits of gentle and luxurious handmade soaps.
However, Katy hadn’t foreseen how fascinated she would become with the creative process of making soap and soon extended the range to include bath products and lip balm. Research and experimentation using high quality natural ingredients saw Katy develop an impressive range of luxurious skincare products which contain skin loving oils and butters and only the best ingredients.

Implementing your vision
All of our products can be customised to achieve your vision. We are able to make products for special occasions such as weddings or baby showers; and are happy to make bulk or wholesale orders for resale or to use in the hospitality industry.
All custom orders include a design meeting in our workshop (or on the phone/video) to discuss all product requirements such as design and colour schemes, scents, dimensions, packaging and ingredients as well as budget and timelines. Following the initial briefing, Katy will provide options for each component and work closely with you.
All custom soap orders require a minimum lead time of eight weeks to allow for design, making, curing and packaging. More information for wholesale orders is available on this website, for any other enquiries please contact us.
