Made from materials that are reusable, recyclable and compostable, the aim of the brand is to close the disability gap whilst bringing products to the market that have the planet and sustainability at their heart.

A spokesman said: "We have just launched our new bath and beauty plastic-free collection, featuring infinitely recyclable aluminium bottles in line with our belief in The Circular Economy - eliminating waste and pollution wherever possible.

"Made in small batches by people with disabilities in our semi-automated factory, The Soap Co. is leading the bath and beauty sector by putting purpose over profit and the planet before reckless consumerism.

"We are on sale in John Lewis in Reading and The Soap Co.’s social enterprise ethos is making real waves, proving a hit with a more switched-on demographic concerned about the society they live in and the earth’s future."
