About Mythic Suds


Welcome! Andrea here, the founder of Mythic Suds. Thank you for your interest in our natural olive oil soap.

Mythic Suds was born in 2022 during the pandemic. With the increased hand washing taking place, I noticed that my skin was becoming extremely dry. After researching the ingredients used to make big brand soaps, it was clear that they used cheap chemicals which were striping away my skin's natural oils. This realisation led to a journey to create a nourishing and pure hand soap made with the highest quality natural ingredients, and then sharing it with others who were looking for such a product. 

Through research I learnt that olive oil would be the perfect ingredient for Mythic Suds. Although it is uncommon for soap manufacturers to use it due to its cost, olive oil is rich in antioxidants which nourish and protect the skin. Additionally, it contains natural glycerine which moisturises and softens the skin.

I invite you to examine the full ingredient list below and try Mythic Suds for yourself.

Our packaging materials

The planet is drowning in plastic. Because of the cost involved in recycling, most consumer plastics end up in landfill. Businesses have an opportunity and responsibility to minimise the use of plastic.

Mythic Suds uses locally-made 375 ml glass bottles. Glass is infinitely recyclable and is recycled in Australia at a much higher rate than plastic. Our shipping boxes are plastic-free and fully recyclable. While we do not yet have a plastic-free alternative to the pumps we use on our bottles, this is one element of our packaging we will continue to investigate.
