Designed and manufactured by Irish sculptor and artist Suzanne Clarke, the eponymously named Clarke's of Dublin is an award-winning range of luxurious handmade soaps borne from one woman’s passion.
“Ireland has myriad magnificent raw materials that are just perfect to make cosmetics, especially beautiful soap. The brand may be called Clarke's of Dublin, but I am immensely proud that the ingredients are sourced the length and breadth of the country from the wild coast of Donegal all the way down to the rugged beaches of Co. Cork. I believe it is these ingredients that make the products so special.”
Clarke's Passion which was to make the best soap on the market, an ambition that was finally fully realised earlier this year when Clarke's of Dublin was named Best Soap in the prestigious Social & Personal beauty awards.
“Soap is now my passion,” explains Clarke. “Although I never imagined I would end up making fine soaps, I have always been driven by my desire to create, whether that is a piece of art or sculpture, or something more practical like beauty products.
