About Dr K

Dr K Soap Company


I'm Rob (Dr K) and I'm passionate about producing high quality handmade skin and bodycare products using pure, natural ingredients.

I started Dr K Soap Company in 2011 after funding ran out for my position as a researcher in a university in Cork, Ireland. The process of soapmaking had always appealed to the biochemist and scientist in me and so it was almost a natural transition. I also really liked the idea of experimentation in my own lab - it was and still is an exciting and fun journey to come up with the Dr K range of products. From the beginning, I decided against the “norm” of chemical-laden artificial cosmetics that are available on our supermarket shelves – if I was going to make soap, I would make good soap. The use of only the finest natural ingredients has resulted in the ultimate good-for-you products – ones that I love to use and am proud to put my name on.

Over time our product range has grown, as has our premises and staff. We are currently stocked in over 1000 stores across Europe, with more being added each day :) Dr K’s Handmade Soap and Cosmetics are produced in our laboratory in County Cork, Ireland according to EU cosmetic regulations. All products are SLS free, paraben free, petroleum free and never tested on animals. We are committed to ethical sourcing of the best natural ingredients for the production of our all natural body and skin care products.
