At Marie's Artisan Soaps we use 100% natural and organic ingredients in our products.
All our soaps are natural and contains no preservatives, SLS, Parabens or artificial colours and have been subjected to a Cosmetic Safety Assessment to ensure full compliance with UK and EU cosmetic safety regulations.
Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera) is one of the true wonder plants in the world and will provide your skin with great benefits.
The antioxidants, minerals and nutrients in coconut are great for your skin helping preventing and reducing skin aging.
Coconut oil helps to remove dirt and dead cells from the skin improving skin health condition. Also produces an incredible lather and hardness to the soap.
Our coconut oil is made from coconuts grown on an organically certified plantation.
Organic Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (Elaeis guineensis) is used to create a hard and lovely creamy texture to the soap, also contains a natural preservative effect making a long lasting bar of soap that gives a lovely creamy texture to the soap.
We use organic certified palm oil from a supplier who is a member of RSPO (Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil) to make sure that the product its not from an eco-sensitive area, particularly as palm oil can only be cultivated in tropical areas of Asia, Africa and South America.

Combined with other oils makes a mild bar of soap, hard and a nice dense lather.
Castor Oil (Ricinus communis) acts as a humectant by attracting and retaining moisture to the skin, add a wonderful lather and also contributes lots of bubbles to soap.
