The Aermeda story

The Aermeda philosophy is based on the simple concept that nature’s creations are best for our body.  

Made with intention

Creating time for self-care is a fundamental part of our well-being; enabling us to  re-group both our mind and body. What better times to do this than during our existing showering or bathing.   

All Aermeda hand crafted soaps are formulated to make you and your skin feel indulged. Our beautifully distinct range of aromas are created by blending essential oils to produce balanced subtle fragrances which evoke an emotive and evocative experience.

Produced in small artisan batches, each unique bar of Aermeda soap has been thoughtfully conceived to have its own distinct purpose, enriching your bathing routine  – be it a perfect start to the day or a relaxing deep cleanse.


The meaning of the name Aermeda

Aermeda (Air-me-da) is a nod to our founder’s Celtic roots. It is a modern version of Airmid, a Celtic Goddess of the Growing Greens of life, of Herbal Healing and Herbal Lore.

The name Aermeda reflects the company’s guiding principles in blending modern ideas around ethical and natural products that are good for us and our planet with the traditional craft of soap making.

Responding to a growing problem

Aermeda embodies a response to our unabated consumption of plastic bottled shower gels and liquid soaps and a growing concern about the chemicals and synthetics people unwittingly use on their skin.

Every aspect of the process from formulation of recipe (sourcing/selection of quality ingredients, blending of the essential oils, making of soap batter, cutting soap, stamping soap, packaging soap) to despatch is all done by hand.

All natural milk soaps that are kind to your skin and the environment

Milk soaps provide gentle cleansing that supports and replenish the skin’s moisture, and contribute to a healthier, more balanced skin. Aermeda’s all-milk soap formula is 100% water replacement.

Goat milk soap

Goat milk soap is beneficial for all skin types. Recognised for its restorative and rejuvenating properties, goats milk has featured widely in natural skin and body care products for over a thousand years. Naturally high in saturated and unsaturated fat, goat milk creates a soap that is creamy, gentle, and nourishing.

Vegan plant-based milk soap

We have also created a collection of vegan soaps with organic milks derived from Almond, Coconut and Rice.

Coconut Milk is rich in vitamins and minerals which helps maintain elasticity and flexibility in the skin, it is said to prevent wrinkles and age spots. Coconut milk gives our soap a creamy, bubbly consistency.

Rice Milk is an excellent source of anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant compounds, which helps soothe the skin.

Almond Milk contains proteins, minerals and vitamins. It has anti-ageing properties helping skin regenerate naturally.

Goat Milk Shaving Soap

Aermeda shaving soap is formulated with luxurious moisturising qualities to enrich your skin whilst at the same time not compromising the natural environment. 

Our shaving soap forms a protective barrier between the skin and razor blade – essential for anyone who practices wet shaving. Standard cleaning soaps are unable to provide the same sort of protection.

Rich in plant oils and butters of soy bean, shea butter, Kokum butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil. Tussah silk provides ‘slip’.

We are transparent in sharing the ingredients we use in our soaps, our packaging and how you can recycle or compost every component.
