Owner description: The Vasse Virgin Soap Factory is nestled amongst picturesque grape vines and olive trees within the heart of the Margaret River and Geographe Bay tourism region. Visitors can overlook the unique working factory and watch the soap making process, from manufacture through to the individually hand packaged finished products. We have a large range of luxurious skin care products to test and try. So much more than just a soap factory, we now have the gourmet food tasting room where you can find a range of olive oils, tapenades and table olives. We now also accept Union Pay cards in store.

A good mix of delicious olives, spreads/dips and oils at one end and beautiful fresh soaps and moisturizers at the other. I love that you can try out the different soaps and scrubs while you are there, and leave with a number of types of olives to enjoy and soft, lovely smelling hands!

Really interesting to learn about how the family progressed into making beautiful olive oil soaps and creams. No pressure to buy - you can simply enjoy the smells and samples. However, I can seriously recommend the soaps, which can double as shampoo as there are no detergents or nasties to dry out your skin or hair.

Thank you AussieBarbara for taking the time to review Vasse Virgin. It's great to hear you enjoyed your visit. We wholeheartedly agree about using the soaps as shampoo, in fact, Louis swears by the Orange and Ylang Ylang soap as the best way to wash his hair. More

What a lovely shop this is! I managed to walk away with only a soy candle, but would have bought more if I had the space in my luggage. The lady on staff was lovely, and we all enjoyed taking our time to walk through and sample the products. The scrubs and lotions were amazing. All gorgeous!

We came upon this gem on our around Aust. trip.

We were so welcomed by all staff and just loved the atmosphere and freely trying their range of products. We... More

Vasse Virgin has to be the best place to visit in Margaret River. They produce amazing skin care products to suit everyone and their produce of olive oils, dukkah, pestos and many other items have to be tried to be appreciated, They really are awesome.

I am a local, and love it here. Always fantastic service. All skincare products are wonderful. Testers and the try station are great. Tastings are so good too, to be able to try before you buy.
