The Place for Natural Beauty Lovers
Elise Marques London the premium British natural skincare and lifestyle brand that puts you first and makes You Matter.
Our products are botanical, free from chemicals, Parabens, SLS, MI, MCI, Mineral Oils, Microbeads, ethically sourced and of course Never tested on animals. We blend efficacy, desirability, transparency and social conscience, which resonate highly with today's ethically minded consumer.
We use botanically sourced ingredients derived from nature mainly plants, flowers and herbs and avoid as many nasties as possible. We sometimes use fragrances/perfumes which are often actually safer than essential oils especially for some very sensitive skins. This also makes it more accessible for consumers from a commercial point of view. Our primary concern is the safety of customers as we know nature in its purist form isn’t always ideal, however, having a sensible approach, for example some of the alcohols are naturally derived such as Benzyl Alcohol. This makes the products more accessible for different skin types and holds the aroma and colour of the product. It is about getting the balance right in between safety and efficacy. In general we have less than 2% alcohol, perfume and preservatives in our range of products and our packaging is recyclable.
In 2017 we decided to take our environmental responsibilities a step further and began working with a company in New Zealand to help source raw natural ethically sourced ingredients and develop our new healthy ageing range due to launch 2018.
Manufactured with botanical ingredients that have been wild harvested under ‘Tikanga Maori‘ (Maori customs), observing the strict Maori tradition of harvesting at specific times, in accordance to the wisdom of a long-line of ancestors.
The harvest traditions are to be ‘mindful’ of the plant, pick respectfully and protect what you reap. The time of gathering is strictly aligned with the reason for harvesting, with special care given to the part of the plant picked, maximising the plant's beneficial properties. The key time for harvesting is usually at dawn and dusk, when it is believed that the Mauri (vital force) of nature is at it’s strongest.
Maori harvesting traditions incorporate a special Karakia (a unique prayer) and a Waiata (a song) and whatever is gathered from the earth during this process should be treated with the same respect as when entering another persons home – mindfully, respectfully and with gratitude.
Above all else, the Maori respect for our natural living environment acknowledges the dependence we have as humans on the earth, or in Maori terms ‘Papatuanuku’ – Our Earth Mother.
