The Soap Sponge Company is a bath, body care & home fragrance brand based in the Cotswolds. I have a passion for self-care deep-rooted into my brand is the desire to make everyone feel incredible. The brand was started following a series of traumatic events for my family. We were reliant on food banks to survive and being lucky enough to receive a sample-sized body lotion, that small act of self-care lifted my spirits and made me feel human again. I vowed from that moment that I wanted to bring that feeling to everyone, all the time, and The Soap Sponge Company (formerly Breedon Perfumery) was born!

Congratulations to Michelle Leivars of The Soap Sponge Company (formerly Breedon Perfumery), Winner of the Woman Who Achieves in Retail & Products 2021


To be in a room with so many incredible women at the Woman Who Achieves Awards was such a gift. Hearing their incredible stories was moving and so inspirational, and the sense of community and pride in the room was unbelievable. When my name was announced I couldn’t believe it! And then to hear the judge’s comments were just the icing on the cake.

Thank you Woman Who for an incredible experience, an absolutely fantastic day, and for the support you have shown me, from the bottom of my heart I am so grateful.
