Founded in 1999, serial entrepreneur Roger and aromatherapy expert Sakina identified a gap in the market to produce beautiful, honestly priced luxury toiletries.
Following the initial success of producing body care for other companies, the business developed their own distribution range. Trade Fairs all over the world have been used to build brand awareness and develop valued customer relationships. Over the years the company has been recognised for many prestigious awards for business and design, including the Queens Award. With a trusted network of distributors, the company operates in over 50 countries across the world.
Design is at the core of the business. The company boasts an in-house design studio that hosts a large team of extremely gifted designers, who work tirelessly to create exquisite packaging for every product we produce.
In 2021, The Somerset Toiletry Company opened a soap manufacturing facility in Somerset. Since then, they have produced all soaps right on their doorstep, reducing their carbon footprint. They also wanted to ensure the ingredients they used were both great quality and eco-friendly. Working closely with trusted suppliers they selected ‘segregated palm oil’ certified by The Round Table of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) as one of the soap key ingredients. Therefore, the palm oil used is 100% traceable from only two locations (in the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea) where there is no threat to endangered species such as orangutans, tigers, and rhinos.
