The Little Soap Company

The Success of The Little Soap Company

Emma Heathcote-James, founder and face of The Little Soap Company, is one of the Cotswold's most celebrated entrepreneurs.

Despite a high-flying career in media, working in television and as a distinguished author; Emma decided to trade it all in in pursuit of something closer to her heart, soap - the production of naturally organic soap to be more precise. As Emma explains.. "when you start using proper vegetable oil soap, your skin loves it, you don't need moisturiser." Indeed organic, natural soap is very beneficial for your skin over its commercial and cheaper counterpart. The naturally occurring Glycerin compound in her soap acts as a moisturiser, but it is this component that is actually removed from industry soaps and replaced with a synthetic componant and rather than using Essential Oils, cheaper synthetic aromas chemicals, which compounds Emma's claim.

The Tour began in high spirits with the players taking part in a football quiz on the Friday night, with those on the losing team made to wear a pink tutu at football the following morning, much to the amusement of everyone! The boys took part in a cycle of mini matches on the Saturday morning against teams Devon Express and Bovey Tracey and competed well.

On the Sunday morning, the boys entered The Plymouth Argyle Trust 6 a-side tournament under two separate teams, split to be of equal standard and balance; The Broadway Lions and The Broadway Dragons. Both Broadway teams put in a terrific display on the day as The Lions impressively made it to the quarter finals, where they only just fell short, whilst the Dragons were on the cusp of making the final before they were cruelly denied on penalties in the semis.
