Having worked in Further Education for over 10 years, I realised I needed to have something that would help me to relax and unwind other than red wine after working long hours at work. As a single parent of a wonderful teen with extremely sensitive skin, I was constantly looking for natural products to help combat her dry, itchy skin which was caused by her eczema. In 2017, while researching natural products, I came across ways of making natural soaps and candles. I found engaging in candle and soap making gave me the peace and joy needed to destress while also providing a solution to my daughter’s skin problems. Making our own soap for her skin resulted in spending less time and expense on skin cleansing products full of ingredients we could not trust. After attending a face to face workshop and learning how to make natural soap and candle products, testing our products and attending several successful market stalls, we decided to take another leap of faith and launch our very own line of products – La Rose Candles and Artisan Joy Skin products.
La Rose Noire (Candles) and Artisan Joy (Soap and Skincare) were launched in the summer of 2019 and is based in Buckinghamshire, UK. We create, design and provide elegant, luxurious, animal-free tested products for your home and skin. Our products are inspired by nature which is why we use materials that have not been tested on animals, natural materials of the highest quality and material that will bring healing to your skin and peace to your mind.
