Broadway-based Little Soap Company has revealed it is a finalist in the first ever Amazon Small Business Awards in the ‘Small Business of the Year’ category. The Amazon Small Business Awards have narrowed down thousands of applications to just five finalists to celebrate inspiring and unique UK small businesses selling on Amazon.
Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, the Little Soap Company’s natural, vegan, sustainable and synthetic-free soaps have been chosen for their company vision, customer centricity and unique innovation in the soap market. Amazon customers can vote for their favourite finalist winner by visiting amazon.co.uk/smallbusinessawards. (Voting closes 11:59pm GMT on Sunday 24th November.)
Founder and CEO of Little Soap Company, Emma Heathcote-James. said: “Our company has gone from strength to strength this year and to receive a nomination for an Amazon Small Business Award caps off an impressive 12 months for us. To get this recognition from Amazon is a great testament to the dedication of our team and I’m looking forward to celebrating this achievement with them.”
Emma has won a number of business awards for her initiatives for Little Soap Company, and this September saw her visit 10 Downing Street, for a roundtable discussion with Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Business Secretary Andrea Leadsome to discuss supporting Britain’s small businesses.
In October, Emma was named one of the top inspirational business leaders running the UK’s most exciting growing business in LDC’s ‘Top 50 Most Ambitious Leaders’. LDC (part of Lloyds Banking Group) aim to uncover and celebrate the people behind some of the UK’s fast growing, medium-sized businesses having a disproportionate impact on the UK economy.
Little Soap Company was the first organic soap to hit the supermarkets, bringing its sustainable products to the high street at affordable prices. 2019 saw its first foray into The Grocer Awards with the company’s Organic Grapefruit & Orange Bar shortlisted in the ‘Non-Food’ category.

From washing and exfoliating to shaving and even shampooing, Eco-Warrior has you covered – in biodegradable bar form, helping eliminate untold single use plastic bottles from sinks, bathrooms and wash bags with the first shelf fill alone eliminating the need for 175,000 plastic bottles.
