Natural Ingredients Include:

Shea Butter: contains Vitamins A, E and F which are particularly helpful for damaged skin either by sun or general pollution. Vitamin F is a rejuvenator to the skin. What makes Shea butter so useful in skincare is its ability to penetrate the skin without clogging pores, allowing the skin to breathe. It makes it amazing for any very dry skin conditions.

Avocado Oil: containing high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E, amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. It is renowned to have healing and regenerating properties. It is very useful when treating sun, climate or chemical damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. It is reported to help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin as well as soften the skin tissue. Organic Avocado oil is well known as a nutrient for penetrating dry skin and resolving endless skin problems.

Cocoa Butter: an excellent emollient, helps skin to stay soft, supports collagen production and improves skin elasticity. It soothes sensitive skin, and stops water evaporating form the skin.

Happy Customers Say“My daughter has been suffering from molluscum and I bought the scratchy soap for her to use in the bath as they were causing her some pain and her skin was sore because of them. Within a week we saw a huge improvement and within 2 weeks they have gone. Would highly recommend this product. My eldest daughter also uses it to help keep her eczema under control so she doesn’t have to use steroids.”


“Slightly hooked on scratchy soap ….. it’s amazing! First sensitive soap I have tried where you actually feel really clean and not greasy after using but doesn’t irritate or dry out skin at all. Love it! x”

8 reviews for Scratchy Soap – Handcrafted

  1. Alison

    I received this soap in a gift set and once my liquid hand soaps finished I decided I was not buying any more plastic bottles so I started using this! It is a lovely hand soap, smells gorgeous and leaves my hands feeling nice and soft. I have been using it for around 4 months now and there is still so much of the bar left, great value for money and much better for your skin and the environment! I will be sticking with this soap from now on 🙂

  2. Laura

    My husband started using this in February along with the shampoo bar. He has eczema and struggles to find things that don’t make his skin itchy and dry. This has been brilliant and his skin has never been better. We will definitely be ordering some more!

    I love this soap,it smells “clean” but is very gentle,it lathers well and has a luxurious feel, My skin has improved so much since discovering Lisa’s products and I have many favourites, I am certain that this lovely soap is already one of them.

    A gorgeous, sore-skin friendly soap. Particularly right for this time of year when hands get chapped. Loved the fragrance – it smells healthy for you, as well as being so!

  5. Florence Collier (verified owner)

    This is a lovely, sensitive and plastic-free alternative to shower gel. We all have sensitive skin to varying degrees, so I didn’t hesitate to buy scratchy soap.
    I was a little worried at first about the fragrance, which is quite potent (like scratchy balm) when you first unwrap it, but it does fade after a while and just smells “clean” (and thankfully not like Vosene – do you remember the advert?!).
    Another fabulous hand made product by LJ Natural.

    The smell is lovely; it is subtle and natural. It removes all traces of BO after a sweaty workout (my last natural soap from another company did not). It is gentle on my hands which can react very badly to some ‘mainstream’ soaps.

  7. Jenni

    This soap is marvellous. From the minute I started to use it I have noticed a difference to my skin.
    The smell of it is calming. It feels gentle and soothing.
    I would recommend to anyone not just for skin problems.

  8. Sian (verified owner)

    Love this soap! It’s made a big difference to my daughter’s skin. She’s only 1 and her skin is sensitive with some eczema patches. I saw a big improvement after just one week so it’s a family staple now. I would definitely recommend.
