We use sustainable Palm Kernel Oil. The soaps in the collections “Luxurious essential” & “Luxurious spa” do have palm kernel oil. We are aware of the huge negative impact of deforestation has in the survival of orangutangs, that’s why we very carefully chose our suppliers - Silbury.co.uk The palm kernel oil we use is Identity Preserved (IP) certified sustainable.
Our goal in Estia soaps is to make use of only natural ingredients and benefit straight from Mother Nature without enchanting the colouring or the fragrance of our soaps with anything synthetic or laboratory chemical.

The fragrance in all of our soaps is created by 100% pure essential oils and organic herbs. Essential oils are a natural product extracted from a single plant species. It carries the “healing power” of a plant in a small drop. Used medicinally for thousands of years through a variety of forms, the true power of essential oils is their ability to support your body’s natural healing systems. Their power to heal is extremely effective. With their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and soothing properties, essential oils are used for a variety of skin care conditions. Not to mention the use essential oils in aromatherapy, a therapy to improve physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. In Estia soaps you will find a combination of pure essential oils, carefully chosen to be blended together to offer the best result for your skin and spiritual well-being.

The herbs we use mostly on the ‘Botanical essential” collection, are organic herbs, well known even from ancient Greek medicine for their therapeutic properties. Clay is one of the most cleansing and detoxifying natural ingredients you can use on your skin. Rich in minerals clay is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals.
Yes, all Estia soaps are 100% vegan, and we can guarantee that as we create the soap from scratch, choosing traceable plant based (vegetable oils, essential oils, herbs) and earth (clay) ingredients.
Our soaps are inspired by the traditional Greek green soap our grandmothers used to make years ago! Back then the soap was made by the hot process method, and shaped in big cubes as they used a single soap to wash their hair, face, body and even to wash their clothes and do the housecleaning (using soap flakes soaked in warm water). The whole family would share a soap cube.

The cube shape is easier to hold, though it means double time and effort for us to create each soap one by one, and unmould it one by one instead of the easy instantly cutting more soapmakers we persist to keep it like that offering you the best soap you can find!
The collection: Botanical essential” has been created to offer unscented, extremely mild without any essential oils.(except the soap ATHINA which has Rosemary), soaps safe to be used during pregnancy and breastfeeding period. If you still want to use a soap from our collections that have essential oils, we recommend to contact your doctor/midwife first for advice. All the ingredients are clearly listed in each product.
Estia Soaps is named by the Greek Goddess of the Hearth and Domestic Life Hestia. She was the goddess of the hearth, home, architecture, domesticity, family, and the state and one of the twelve Olympian gods that live on mountain Olympus.

A virgin Goddess whose name in modern Greek represent the fireplace, symbolising the connection and gathering of all family around the fire.
