Shetland Soap Company

Proudly part of COPE Ltd, we work alongside adults with learning disabilities to produce a range of handmade soap, skin and hair care products, inspired by the beauty of our Islands. Great products, Great people.


All our products are hand made in Lerwick, a stone’s throw away from the sea. We have crafted collections to pay homage to our past, whilst reflecting the fresh and natural surroundings we call home. Our products and their Shetland dialect names are inspired by nature and elements of the island life we live.


You can explore our full range, either by dropping in to visit our shop on Commercial Street, Lerwick, or visit our online shop.

We also supply a range of trade customers from boutique retailers and accommodation providers to gift box services and corporate procurement. Learn more here.


Shetland has a long and interesting history. Once part of Norway we have a strong connection to our Scandinavian heritage. Inspired by our history and unique surroundings our experienced team have crafted collections that pay homage to our past, whilst reflecting the fresh and natural surroundings that we call home.


All our products are handmade in small batches. Each bar of cold pressed soap is hand mixed, hand cut, hand trimmed and hand wrapped. All our ingredients are SLS and paraben free. We use PET plastic bottles which can be recycled and all our labels are completely peelable to aid recycling. Our traditional hard bar soap is wrapped in sustainable, biodegradable glassine paper. Our creams and bath salts come in glass jars.
