About Us

Hi, I'm Lisa from Pio Soaps!

I work out of my small workshop in Nottinghamshire, where I design and create soaps, candles, wax melts, bath and body products plus reed diffusers.

As well as what is for sale here, I specialise in custom products for special occasions.

About the name: Pio originates from Latin, and means to "to purify by sacred ritual", which embodies everything that we're about.

Not only has ritual been a part of culture since the start of civilisation, so has the use of fragrance and bathing in ritual. Ritual means different things to different people, whether it's in a holistic, meditative sense, or simply the act of taking a few minutes out of our busy day to cleanse, shower, bathe and re-invigorate the senses.

For me, it means that we give you environmentally friendly products made from ethically sourced, high quality ingredients that are a pleasure to use and are designed to feed the skin or the soul and to nourish the senses. Our soaps, for example are palm oil free and our candles are made from natural soy, lip balms are made from Mango and Shea butters, never paraffin.

Our product range includes (but is never limited to):

~  Palm Oil Free Soaps
~  Candles
~  Wax Melts
~  Bath Bombs
~  Bath Soaks
~  Foot Soaks
~  Body Scrubs
~  Lip Balms
~  Body Butters
~  Face Packs

Because everything is handmade, we can offer a weddings and events service where you can choose from our existing collection of products or we can work with you on products, packing, fragrance and colour to create bespoke products for your event.

I hope you enjoy this website, and are tempted to try our products.
