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.

This was a repeat visit for us as the skincare products from Vasse Virgin are wonderful. The shop itself with a view of the factory area and a very stylish sink area to try the washes and body polishes is delightful and has a great aroma as soon as you walk in. Staff here are very friendly and knowledgeable and... More

This little shop is set down along a tree lined drive way. We got the idea to come here seeing all the Vasse Virgin oil diffusers in the toilets of the various wineries in the region! This is a great stop to make. It is packed full of all sorts of products, ranging from soaps, candles and oil diffusers to... More

This was a worthwhile stop, we have packed our bags full of their products ready to take home. Really lovely olive oil, olives to die for and other sauces were tasty. Looking forward to getting home and cooking! Really lovely place to visit. Wish we had longer to keep tasting and smelling!

The first thing you notice about this place is the stunning driveway lined in tall straight trees, the second thing you notice is the amazing aroma as you go through the door. Divine. A family owned business, Vasse Virgin started when the owners tried to find a soap alternative for their children who all suffered from excema. Today the soap... More

Stubbled across this little place only recently. The aroma that greets you when you open the front door is wonderful and entices you in to explore. The staff are very helpful if you have a specific need or want. The new gourmet section is a tasting heaven. To not visit Vasse Virgin would be a wasted trip to the region.

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
