The Buckfast Tonic Wine Soap, a unique and indulgent creation by Christine at Bathe Botanicals. This artisan soap is crafted with real Buckfast tonic wine, a beloved beverage in Northern Ireland, known as 'Lurgan Champagne'. Its distinctive and flavourful profile is expertly blended into the soap, offering a bubbly bar that's not just a treat for your skin but a delight for your senses.

Handmade in small batches in County Armagh, Christine infuses each bar with a bespoke blend of essential oils, luxurious butters, and oils, drawing from her background in beauty therapy, hairdressing, and sustainability. The result is a soap that's not just beautiful to look at but also rich in moisturising and nourishing properties, perfect for a gentle and effective cleanse.

Buckfast tonic wine, the key ingredient in this soap, is a fortified wine with a unique history and flavour profile. It's produced by the monks at Buckfast Abbey in Devon, England, and has gained a cult following in parts of the UK and Ireland. The wine is known for its rich, sweet taste, and high caffeine content, making it a distinctive choice for an artisan soap.

Ingredients include olive oil for its nourishing and anti-inflammatory properties, coconut oil for cleansing and removing impurities, cocoa butter for its creamy texture, shea butter rich in vitamins A and E, sweet almond oil for moisture retention, and castor oil for its moisturising and bubble-creating properties. 


Each bar, weighing around 125g and measuring 10 x 7 x 2 cm, is a testament to Christine's commitment to sustainability and supporting local businesses. Made with local spring water from Lough Neagh and free from palm oil, harmful chemicals, toxins, or preservatives, it's a soap that's not only good for your skin but also for the planet.
