“I am completely inspired by my ingredients and my imagination is always firing with new ideas for creations that use the multi dimensional healing potential of plants, to nourish the skin, create scent and colour.”
Oils and Butters
In every bar we use the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and RSPO certified Palm Oil to create the base of our mild conditioning soaps which are suitable for even the most sensitive skins. Then recipes vary, some use Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter, Irish Rapeseed Oil, Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Hazelnut Oil, Rose Hip Oil and Carrot Tissue Oil.
We are careful when we source our oils, that they are cold pressed or minimally processed.
Cold pressed oil is made from the fruit of plants by pressing raw fruit without cooking them. This means that little to no heat is used in the process, thereby preserving all the naturally occurring chemical compounds within the oil, so that they can directly benefit the skin.
“Each soap is carefully designed, using layers of colour to illustrate the scent. I sketch out the look I want and set about perfecting the recipes: pink clay or rosehip powder for pink, nettle or chlorophyll for green, paprika and cayenne for oranges, turmeric or beta carotene for yellow and mineral pigments for blues.”
Active Botanicals and Minerals
To create our colours we use active botanicals and minerals that also promote vital glowing skin: nettle leaf, rosemary leaf, and orange peel, cocoa powder, turmeric, cayenne, kaolin clay and activated charcoal.
“I start with the scent – I want to capture a mood, a memory, evoke a place, feeling and time. Summer or winter, comforting or invigorating.”
