Our story

Happy Hippy Soaps was founded in an urban home nestled in beautiful Dunedin, New Zealand, known for its Scottish influences. Inspired by time-honoured traditional recipes, the love of handcrafted skincare, and the wish to bring people closer every day, these values are still at the core of everything Happy Hippy.

Simple and natural ….

Our palm free soaps are made from powerful skin loving ingredients that are 100% Natural, with no synthetic colours or fragrances. We use quality ingredients from completely plant-based sources, that have proven to be moisturising and non drying, beneficial to those with inflammatory skin conditions. Every bar of soap is made by hand in small batches.

Nature inspires us, and gives us wonderful ingredients of plants, flowers and woods. Our manufacturing processes respects our environment. Unlike main stream industry, we want to let ourselves take time to create according to our inspirations, we work with precision and passion. We want to share something we love ….

Slow down, feel the sweetness of life ….

Happy Hippy Soaps uses the ancestral process of Cold Saponification.
This method reacts with the raw materials without heating them and therefore retains their virtues. The end product of the total reaction creates an integral, economical, biodegradable soap, rich in natural glycerin. This technique allows us to produce high quality soaps that you will love.

Eco friendly packaging ….

Our paper wrapper is made from a combination of wheat and recycled wood, nothing else. The wheat straw is sourced from farms in India, a byproduct of the wheat harvest. The wood comes from furniture offcuts from the manufacturers in India. By using this paper for our packaging, we are reducing the industry’s reliance on tree-felling for paper, cutting airborne pollution by reducing wheat straw burnoffs, and helping to improve industrial sustainability efforts in India.
As eco as possible, that’s the hippy way.
