Discover Crabtree and Evelyn at Bradshaws!

Crabtree & Evelyn is recognized as a luxury bath & beauty brand but did you know that it started as a small soap shop operated from the basement of an eccentric couple's house in Connecticut about 50 years ago?


Crabtree & Evelyn was founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Jr. (1925-2011), an extravagant entrepreneur and renowned proponent of world cinema. Harvey and his second wife, Rebecca, moved to Connecticut in the early seventies and started Crabtree & Evelyn, initially a small business that they ran out of their basement. Harvey's passion for horticulture and travelling led him to collect botanical soaps and lotions from around the world. Customers delighted in his unique discoveries and his passion quickly evolved into a successful business.

Traditional meal soaps were the first items to be produced by Crabtree & Evelyn

Traditional meal soaps were the first products to be produced by the Crabtree & Evelyn label. These have evolved over the years into a range of Heritage Soaps which are still available today like Almond Milk & Honey, Vetiver & Juniper Berry and Oatmeal & Wheatgerm. The company continues to draw on its rich heritage and knowledge of plants and botanicals while making new advancements in the field. Over 160 natural botanical ingredients are used in their products today! Crabree & Evelyn is also well known and loved for their beautiful, botanical themed packaging which make every item perfect for gift giving.
