Elsie Moss Botanical is a small soap making business based in Chesterfield and named after founder Lisa’s grandmother. Lisa explains her passion for the products she creates…
Right from the start, it was so important to me that my business had a strong ethos of kindness – kind to skin, to animals and to the planet and this has become the backbone of everything I do – natural skin care with a conscience. My soaps are cruelty free and vegan, contain no palm oil and no toxic chemicals. I’m passionate about clean skin care and products that feed the skin in the most kind, gentle and nourishing way possible.
I love using natural ingredients such as shea butter and sweet almond oil as they have wonderful, skin loving properties. I think my favourite part of the soap making process though, is adding beautiful scents with essential oils and colour with natural clays and powders. I still get excited at the cutting stage to see how the colours have turned out, and I’m always amazed at the beautiful range of colours and tones that can be achieved with purely natural, plant-based powders.
Swapping from shower gel to soap is one of the easiest switches we can make to reduce our single use plastic waste. I am totally dedicated to doing all I can to protect this precious planet of ours, including being as low waste as possible. My wrappers, labels, packaging and parcel tape are all paper based and entirely plastic free; and last year I was made a Surfers Against Sewage ‘Plastic Free Champion’ by our local Plastic Free Community group in Chesterfield.
All bars are made using the time-honoured cold process method, which is the method our ancestors used in times gone by to make soap for their own personal use.
My products are safety assessed and comply with the EU & UK cosmetic selling regulations.
