Real soap, made the old fashioned way

The philosophy behind The Soapstress began with Grace’s grandmothers. These woman lived their entire lives based on the foundation of natural holistic living- and in doing so ingrained this value in Grace, maker and founder of The Soapstress.

‘One of my earliest memories is watching my grandmother lathering up clothes on a big old washboard using a bar of soap she had handmade. Perhaps that’s where my love affair with soap began.’  – Grace

Together, these woman taught Grace the importance of cooking with the freshest ingredients, how to garden and grow her own food but most importantly, how to harness the power of natural remedies for burns, bumps and beauty.

Years later, Grace began creating products inspired by her grandmothers for her own children; each product would be truly natural without exception.

The Soapstress is the culmination of all the things Grace lives and loves.

It always begins with organic plant oils, each product consciously formulated by choosing ingredients with purpose and mindfulness of it’s effect on the environment.


And finally, scents that create subtle yet meaningful moments of indulgence in your everyday.


Our mission is to educate and energise conscious consumers who will savour our luxury skincare products in their daily wellness rituals. Our line is formulated with exceptional, natural ingredients, which we hope will inspire people to live in health and joy – with a softer impact on the planet.



The Soapstress is based Camden, NSW and operates from a studio overlooking  the family farm.
