BACK TO BASICS

Now my Pure Soap (30g costing £2.40) is my daily cleanser, followed by my Pure Oil

Time for change ….

Daily we now hear more and more regarding the horrendous impact our use of plastic is having on our planet!  Last night I watched the ‘War on Plastic’ programme with Hugh and Anita and was overwhelmingly shocked at how plastic is in everything – wipes are 90% plastic, our clothes are plastic, our water contains […]

Welcome 2019

Hello and welcome to January 2019 – a year of less ….. January is one of my favourite months, I love the idea of a new year, new plans, the expectations of what lies ahead – a fresh start! This year for me is all about embracing less – consuming less, buying less, needing less […]

Happy – Healthy Skin

    Skin is our largest organ and as such works very hard to protect from outside aggressions and from losing valuable hydration. Our job is to look after our it so that it in turn can look after us. It needs to be able to eliminate waste products through our pores whilst keeping the […]

Teenage Skincare

I created Teenage Kicks Soap for my teenage daughter as I wanted her to use a product that was totally natural with no chemicals, preservatives, parabens, SLS nor artificial colours or fragrances.  Many commercial skincare products today will strip the natural protective layer from the skin which will result in the skin trying to produce […]

PURE SOAP by Deborah Neill

Our modern world seems intent on creating more and more complex solutions for our daily lives! When did we fall out of love with basic soap and find ourselves following a daily routine which involves a myriad of chemicals just to simply wash ourselves each day? Its time to take back control, both for our […]

Banish the blemish!

We believe passionately that the products we apply to our body should be of the same high quality as the food we eat and when we make our soaps we only include those ingredients which will add something to the final bar and of course must be 100% natural! Our Teenage Kicks Soap was made […]

Hello and Welcome 2017

  Have you made some New Year Resolutions or do you dread January?  Its certainly a great time to make ‘life changes’ and ‘start afresh’!   To me January is wonderful – after the Christmas festivities, and all that eating and drinking, its lovely to get back to a more simple life again – clearing the […]

We ‘Cosy-Up’ for Winter!

There is a new trend coming from Denmark – Hygge – all about enjoying the winter and every moment, but here in Northern Ireland we have been ‘cosying up’ for years! As the days become shorter and the mercury drops we hunker down in our homes making lovely stews, lighting the fire, getting out the […]

Amazing Autumn

As the season begins to drift towards Autumn, I think of all the reasons why I love this time of year, the stunning pink sunrises, the changing colours of leaves on trees, the hedgerows laden with berries, farmers bringing in the harvest, cloudy skies and the sea becoming rougher!

Deborah Neill’s Seaweed Soap

Local Dulse Seaweed collected in Donaghadee makes this soap extra special.

Soap in the Summer

Love your Summer Holidays and this year go minimal and pack a small bag of essentials that you can mix and match and fit into your hand luggage so that as soon as the plane lands you’re off and not having to wait for the luggage to be unloaded!

Seaweed in Springtime

This is such a wonderful time of year with the longer days and a bit of Spring sunshine its the perfect time to get outdoors and feel the heat of the sun on your skin!

Soap Story

Qualified as a beautician and aromatherapist in the 1980’s I spent many years enjoying salon work and in particular facials and massage.

Nourish Your Skin

Each day our skin absorbs hundreds of chemicals from the food we eat to the products we apply – just imagine how difficult it is for our bodies to take the beneficial ingredients and eliminate the waste!

Deborah Neill uses only 100% natural ingredients.
