You've seen your favourite professional make up artists talking about it, your friends talking about it, even your nan is talking about it! But what is Soap Brows® and does it really keep your eyebrows in place…??
Who and What is Soap Brows?
Soap Brows is the brainchild and hero product of Donna and Kim, a mother-daughter duo from Durham, in the North East of England. Kim is a trained make up artist who was struggling to find a product that gave full, fluffy, natural brushed up eyebrows which actually stayed in place. After trying lots of brow gels, brow pomades and brow waxes, Donna and Kim came up with Soap Brows; inspired by the old Hollywood trick of using soap on brows, Soap Brows is specially formulated for use on the brows (unlike a bar of soap, which can be harmful) and housed in a handy makeup bag-friendly tin.
Donna, a skincare and cosmetic enthusiast became interested in the formulation of such a product and after putting their heads together and experimenting, Soap Brows was born in Donna's home kitchen.
What is IN Soap Brows?
We know what you are thinking and you'd be right...there is soap in Soap Brows! It's a glycerin based product but that isn't all. Donna and Kim both live as organically as possible, so there aren't any harsh chemicals in the formula and we don't do nasty preservatives. Because ewwww.
Unlike other bathroom soaps, it is fragrance free and unscented. Scented products can be harsh to the skin when left on. There are very few foaming agents in Soap Brows, so you won't get that lovely lather you get from a bathroom soap and we don't used bulking agents or added colours either! Where hand soap is designed to remove bacteria and be washed off, Soap Brows is formulated specifically to leave on the skin!
How is it made?
Now we aren't going to give away trade secrets but we can tell you each tin is lovingly mixed, hand poured, and left to set at WBCo.® HQ! It is then polished rigorously by our lovely Gwen, the gran of the office and head of quality control.
Who makes it?
We do! West Barn Co. create all of their products by hand, from designing products to mixing, testing and packaging. It's not easy but someone has to do it...(we love it)
Who uses it?
We certainly don't like to brag but it is testament to our little white tin that we have some of the elite makeup artists using it in their kit; from the unbelievably talented James Molloy to the sensational Patrick Ta! Our products have graced the beautiful faces and brows of Sophie Turner, Perrie Edwards, and Queen Bee herself. No, we aren't kidding...
