At Quintessentially English we use oils from a company that has been providing highest quality oil products and derivatives since 1894, to customers within the UK, in Europe and world-wide. Like us they are a family business having existed for 3 generations.
ORGANIC OLIVE OIL
Olive oil is one of the most predominately used ingredients in soapmaking. Organic olive oil is created from organically grown olives, it has a warm golden colour and is 'cold-pressed', ie picked and crushed by large stone rollers - without the use of any machines or unnatural processes.
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL
Our coconut oil is made from coconuts grown on an organically certified plantation. The oil is lovely and silky. This oil has been cold processed meaning that no heat has been used to separate the water from the oil. The certification guarantees the production method, from the picking and melting to packaging.
ORGANIC PALM OIL
We use a certified soil association approved sustainable palm oil that gives a lovely creamy texture to the soap. We carefully monitor our supplier to ensure that the product remains sustainable and that the source is trackable so that its not from an eco-sensitive area, particularly as palm oil can only be cultivated in tropical areas of Asia, Africa and South America.
We use a variety of essential oils all 100% pure, finest, premium, aromatherapy grade essential oils, organic oils and absolutes. We use over 70 essential oils in our soapmaking from the more popular oils such as Tea Tree, Lavender and Geranium through to the more exotic such as Benzoin. We blend oils together to create a wonderful selection of 50 soaps.
