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 only plant derived ingredients and 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 offer flat rate shipping of $8.50 per order and free shipping for orders over $100 (up to 5kg). Local orders of $30 and more will be delivered for free within 10km of Albany CBD, and for a small charge up to 20km of Albany CBD. Local customers are welcome to pick up their orders from our workshop by appointment. For anything else please contact us prior to placing the order to receive a custom freight quote.
All products can be customised to suit your individual needs (design, size and/or ingredients). We are able to make products for special occasions such as wedding favours and are happy to make bulk or wholesale orders for resale or to use in the hospitality industry. Please contact us.

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 decided to develop a soap that would be kind to her sensitive skin, and that would also be suitable for her little daughter to use. She soon experienced the benefits of her gentle and luxurious soaps for herself.
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.
We are proud to be stocking across the Great Southern Region of Western Australia as well as the South West Region. You can directly order from our online shop or pop in to one of of stockists who carry a selection of our range.
Please contact us if you are interested stocking our products (wholesale and commission available) or would like to have feature products for guests of your accommodation business.

Markets & events
Out and about
Artisan Soap Works attends a range of events to meet customers and sell products directly. We will continue to attend markets in Albany and surrounding areas of the Great Southern region, and intend to travel to feature markets in the Perth and South West regions in the near future.
We are happy to run workshops in partnership with other such as local Community Resource Centres and are working with the The Seasonal Creative. For smaller groups we also run workshops from our own workspace in Collingwood Heights including soap making for adults and kids holiday workshops where we explore melt and pour soap as well as different bath fizzies everyone loves. The kids workshop can also be run as a birthday party workshop - please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements and costs.
Please check back here or follow us on social media to receive updates and invitations to future events and markets.
Upcoming markets & events
We are having a break from markets and workshops at the moment as adding to our family but are expecting to be back in late 2020. In the meantime please order via our website which will remain fully operational during our break. We also still service our stockists as listed above.
If you are interested in attending a workshop in the future please message us and we will add you to our Expression of Interest list. We will then contact everyone in due course when we are back from leave and have enough people for a workshop (6 participants). We offer beginners and advanced cold process soap making workshops as well as kids workshops and can schedule group bookings during our break as well.
