At the heart of Quintessence Soaps luscious Bath, Body and Hair products is our commitment to using natural ingredients, traditional processes, simple formulations and zero or minimal eco friendly packaging so you can enjoy a little natural luxury everyday.
Olive Oil, the major ingredient is so good for your skin. It makes your skin feel soft and moisturized;
Coconut Oil moisturizes and creates a luxurious lather;
Certified Organic Palm Oil * offers the soap creaminess and hardness, I've chosen not to exclude this from these bars because I know there are fabulously ethical suppliers of this important oil crop who have exemplary credentials. * Quintessence Soaps follows the World Wildlife Fund guidelines for sourcing Palm Oil. The small amount of PALM we use is 100% certified organic sourced from DAABON which is a world leader in Environmental and Social Responsibility Read the palm policy and why I use palm here.
PURE ESSENTIAL OILS:Pure Essential Oils perfume our soaps. I source most of the E-Oils from an Australian essential oil company that is eco-accredited with “good environmental choice, Australia ltd” www.aela.org.au
Other natural clays and ingredients added for colour and texture.
Most soaps in this range are Vegan Friendly

SOLID SHAMPOO BARS You can buy them here: So popular now, the solid shampoo soap bars are pure soap made with hair loving oils and essential oils. I make 4 varieties (2 are palm free). Not to be confused with the other type of shampoo non soap bar which are called SYNDET BARS which are solid detergents suitable for hair washing. They are made from the same ingredients as shampoo in a bottle less the water. I don't make Syndet Bars. You can read a little about our shampoo bars on the BLOG post 22/1/2020
SOLID CONDITIONER BARS You can buy them here: Now, these are amazing! Made with salon quality conditioning ingredients, hair loving oils and shea butter, these are the perfect plastic free conditioner option. You swipe them onto wet clean hair until you can feel that 'conditiony feel'. Squish to cond-ish and rinse-out or leave-in. We make 2 varieties - The ORIGINAL is a good all rounder - The ARGAN Conditioner Bar Formulated with Argan Oil for its richness and nourishment for drier or curly hair (like mine).
THE ANGKORIAN COLLECTION : Inspired by my love of Cambodia, I've created a palm free soap with heavenly blends of essential oils that are reminiscent of Cambodia. There are 5 varieties. NOT AVAILABLE ONLINE YET!
