La Fille de la Mer
I opened my small soap shop in 2003. The idea comes from my mother’s family, because my grandmother and her sisters made soaps years before me!
From the country soap, I created a wide variety of vegetable oil and glycerine based handmade soaps and cosmetics, adding essential oils and Magdalen Islands’ land products like the sand from our beautiful beaches, kelp from the sea, plants and fruits, honey from our local beekeeper, salt, alabaster stone from our red cliffs and other 100% Magdalen Islands’ ingredients!
Let yourself be tempted by my original and nature inspired products, or offer them as gifts, they usually create a good reaction!
Our soaps are handmade in our little studio in the beautiful Magdalen Islands, with love and high quality ingredients. All our recipes are original and we believe that this is what makes our creations unique. We offer many soap lines, such as our old-fashioned, creative soaps, melt & pour and soapy cupcakes!
Why buy our handmade soaps?
Since we carefully make each batch of soap, it is easy for us to tell you exactly witch ingredients go in the soaps you purchased. Our soaps are really different than the commercial ones, as large factories regularly use synthetic detergents to produce more lather and bubbles, and usually they remove the natural glycerine. This combined strips the skin from it’s natural oils and leaves you feeling a bit dry! We, on the other hand, use food grade ingredients and the glycerine (witch is a humectant) stays in our soaps, making them more moisturizing. Also, adding specialty additives, essential oils and quality fragrances, allows us to offer you a more natural, authentic, efficient and colourful choice of soaps.
We need to let you know that the soaps you will get might be a little different from their photo, but that is what makes each bar unique. To keep your soap for as long as possible, make sure to place it on a soap dish that will allow it to dry between each use.
We are convinced of the exceptional quality of all our products and we wish you’ll enjoy them as much as we do!
