‘Essentiq Natural Products’ is a Slovenian company established in Ljubljana in 2011. The core aim of Essentiq is to maintain vitality with as many natural and as few synthetic products as possible. This is why we use the fruits given to us by nature and offer them to you in the form of cosmetic products and fragrances for the home. Our beliefs are reflected everywhere, even in the company name. The first part of Essentiq comes from ‘essence’ and the second part from the French word ‘authentique’. The heart and the scents of our products are authentic and natural. .
For the first year and a half we have been developing our own brand of natural & organic cosmetic products and natural home fragrances. In September 2012 we were proud to introduce 40 cosmetic products and 12 home fragrances in the Slovenian market.
All our cosmetic products comply with Ecocert standards, although only the line for facial care is currently certified by ECOCERT. When developing our cosmetic lines we always focus on a specific goal or problem we wanted to address:
Facial care products consist of cleansing gel, moisturizing toner and three facial creams. Our neutral cleansing gel and moisturising tonic are appropriate for all skin types. We have placed emphasis on active ingredients with strong cleansing, moisturising and calming effects, such as lemon and May Chang oils, peppermint water and bio-glycerine. Our facial creams offer comprehensive nourishment for your skin. We have adjusted the active ingredients to cater for three different skin types. Facial cream for oily skin contains rosehip oil which stimulates skin regeneration and reduces excessive secretion of oil and impurities. To protect dry and sensitive skin from various adverse environmental factors, such as cold, wind or sun, we use Shea butter. Our facial cream for mature skin uses evening primrose oil to inhibit skin ageing.
Our body care line consist of hand soaps and hand cream, intimate soap, shower gels, body lotions, bath foams, body scrubs and body care oil. Hand soaps and shower gels contain up to 14 different natural and organic ingredients that act as antimicrobial and disinfecting agents, and extracts with anti-inflammatory effects. They are appropriate for people who experience the feeling of dry skin after showering. Our hand cream with honey and bio-glycerine comprehensively nourishes our hands with everything that they need. The hand cream is not fatty and therefore does not leave fatty stains, but it does create a thin protective layer on the skin. Our best seller is ‘golden oil’, containing a mixture of six different oils: soya, almond, jojoba, West Indian rosewood, carrot and lavender oil. It is a ‘dry’ oil that effectively feeds hair tips, eyebrows and eye lashes, nourishes the skin around the nails, and much, much more.
Hair care products include shampoos and conditioners. In shampoos we use different combinations of herbs that are adjusted to effective cleaning of different types of scalps. In contrast to shampoos, our herbal conditioners are adjusted for different types of hair. We use rosemary to boost the glow of hair and camomile to soothe the scalp.
Products for children consist of two shower gels and a 2 in 1 shampoo. Use of these products avoids crying due to irritated eyes, and children can be left to wash themselves to encourage their independence. Our consumers’ experience has confirmed that our products are especially appropriate for children who suffer from skin problems such as dermatitis, as the products do not cause the acute phases of the affliction.
Our ‘Men’ line includes aftershave balm and cream, as well as different shower gels and 2 in 1 shampoos.
Our selection of products to make your home smell beautiful includes reed diffusers, room sprays and candles, which are all available in four different fragrances: lemon and peach; grapefruit; lime and pear; and bergamot and aniseed. We can also offer white stones on a clay plate that you can spray with your preferred fragrance.
