Their traditional soap has stood the test of time as they have moved from Belarus, Russia, to Berlin, and now are proudly based in Lancashire, UK.

After an illustrious journey, England became their home in 1937; a former yarn mill in Chorley, Lancashire, to be precise. Here Droyt's saw the success of their glycerine soap grow steadily, although post war rationing hampered their growth. They did what they could to survive making tooth powder to cough medicine. Soap production only began once more in the late 1940’s. And their classic natural soap was a hit all over the world. Droyt's soap filled the shelves of some of the biggest department stores, from San Francisco to New York, including Macy's.

Their beautiful soaps are still manufactured in the same way that they have since 1907. Hand cut using the same early 20th century equipment to create a timeless natural soap that is as good now, as it was then. Hand cut and lovingly crafted, each bar of their natural soap will easily find a home in your bathroom and in your hands, with its soft-feel, great smell and timeless aesthetic.

Introduce Some Self Care With Traditional Glycerine Soap

We all know that cleanliness is close to Godliness, right? And Droyt’s create natural soap in the UK that perfectly encapsulates the simple, universal pleasure of cleanliness. Top that off with a good, solid fragrance, traditional methods of making glycerine soap that haven’t changed since the 1900’s and you’ve got Droyt’s.

They are now located in Chorley, Lancashire but their journey to the North West in one that needs to be told. Under the name of The Victorian Fine Soaps Works they began making traditional soap in Minsk in Belarus in 1893. They moved in 1913 to a factory in Saratov on the banks of the Volga River as the company grew. After the Russian revolution the company was forced to move and made their new home in Berlin, in a factory just off the Kurfurstendamm. They changed their name to Danico until 1937 where the course of history took hold once more and they were forced once again to move country, to England. And the rest, is history, as they say.

The classic Droyt range still uses the same formula that they became world renowned for in the 1920’s. Using their own secret formula passed down the generations, their traditional soap boasts the eau de cologne and rose fragrances first developed in the 1920’s but which found homes in department stores all over the world in the 1940’s, including Macy’s.

With the additional complimenting Vegitas range -, a vegetable-based soap which is suitable for vegans -, introduced in the 1980s, Droyt’s emulate the notion that good quality needs very little tweaking. Their beautiful soaps are still manufactured in the same way that they have since 1907.
