My Story

Shona Munro Founder/Maker of Skin Elixir - nourish the skin you're in

What is Skin Elixir and why is it so good?

Skin Elixir arose from my passion for beauty products and a desire to create non toxic skincare to both nourish the skin you're in and to lift spirits. Products that are not only subtly, sumptuously-scented and sensual, but luxurious, affordable, long lasting and ethical too. Made with busy mum's like me in mind and today loved by make-up artists, medical herbalists and yoginis alike.
My small range consists of the Organic Frankincense & May chang Moisturiser (available in 15ml travel size or 60ml jars) and Magnificent Night Oil both sustainably packaged in reusable glass.
I searched for ethical skincare, products that are paraben, emulsifier, synthetic-free, and cruelty-free. I had little joy, as on close scrutiny of ingredients listings, most products use synthetic preservatives and other toxic 'filler' ingredients to enhance the shelf life and make beneficial ingredients stretch further. Skin Elixir 100% natural skincare products have a 12-month shelf life and only contain natural Vitamin E, nature's own preservative.
Fundamental to me and my brand, are the ingredients - selected for their skin healing properties, nurturing not damaging and forever healing. Skin does not tire of their restorative properties. Frankincense, a key feature in Skin Elixir products and rightly revered as the king of oils, is not only treasured as an ancient antidepressant for its ability to induce mental peace, relaxation and satisfaction but can have a phenomenally positive impact on the skin, promoting healthy cell regeneration and reversing the signs of ageing.
Made by hand in small batches with optimal production capped at 160 units per week, my mission is to delight your skin with my moisturiser and night oil. Whether you are looking to soothe, smooth, reduce fine lines, even skin tone or address rosacea, eczema or acne or just looking to apply luxurious and affordable skin goodness day and night, I truly believe as do my loyal customers, that Skin Elixir does this.
I hope you will all cherish these products, handmade with love and integrity.
