Historic Recipe Soap & Cosmetics:
Sally has a specialist research interest in the history of cosmetics and is the author of 'The Artifice of Beauty, a history and practical guide to perfumes and cosmetics' (Sutton Publishing, 2005). A few of the reconstructed recipes she works on have been fully safety certified to modern standards to allow us to offer them to you, these and the associated implements make a great addition to displays and living history or theatrical use.
IMPORTANT NOTE: As of May 5 2019 we are temporarily stopping taking new orders. This is due to a combination of current order volumes and family commitments. Any orders currently in progress are on track, please bear with us as we catch up. We'll update here when the shop is due to reopen, or for the most up to date news, consider following our Facebook page where we update current projects and advance warning of order opportunities. We do have a few items in stock, so if you need something in a hurry or have a question about an order, do feel free to email, we're still around, just trying to clear the backlog. As a rough indication, expect orders to reopen fully in July 2019. Thank you so much for your patience!
