The Skin Elixir Story


I started to develop Skin Elixir in 2016, after years of searching for skincare that was not only ethical, but also effective for my skins needs.

I was self-conscious about dryness and flaky patches on my face. Make-up and concealer only seemed to worsen the problem areas. I wanted to improve the health of my skin and feel better about myself.

Day and night application of the Skin Elixir moisturiser has helped me to feel comfortable in my own skin. I want to share that confidence with others.

Made by hand in small batches, my mission is to bring kindness to your skin and to give you the best in handmade, organic skincare products. Skin Elixir soothes, smoothes, reduces fine lines, and evens skin tone. It can also help address rosacea, eczema and acne. Skin Elixir has a discerning customer base who believe in the principles of the brand and the effectiveness of the products.

Skin Elixir is multi-tasking, luxurious and affordable skincare, founded on ethical principles -  the goodness our skin deserves.

Natural ingredients for holistic skincare

Our skin is amazing, working tirelessly to protect our bodies from the ravages of daily life. It deserves to be treated with kindness.

I found that many products promoted as ethical or natural (without parabens or emulsifiers, synthetic-free or cruelty-free), still used chemical preservatives to enhance shelf-life, dilute beneficial ingredients, and bulk out content.

Skin Elixir ingredients are fundamental to the integrity of the brand. Each one is selected for its nurturing and skin-healing properties, to restore and oxygenate skin of all types.


Revered as the King of Oils, Frankincense is an ancient antidepressant, used to induce mental peace, relaxation and satisfaction. Its benefits to skin are also phenomenal, promoting healthy cell regeneration and slowing signs of ageing.

Vitamin E

The integrity of any product is dependent on all of its ingredients, and is compromised by blending in synthetic chemicals.

The Skin Elixir range is 100% natural and contains Vitamin E - nature's own preservative - which provides the products a 12-month shelf-life.

Sustainability & Zero Waste

As a small independent brand, it is important to me to deliver affordable luxury skincare, which does not cost the earth. Skin Elixir is packaged in recyclable amber glass, protecting the integrity of the products but creating zero waste.
