My name is Leanne, and I have a real passion for making soaps and skin care products.
I am a wife and a mum to 2 little boys. The love for my family and desire to work from home has been my motivation to start my own soap business and ever since my first attempt at combining scents, colours, botanicals and generally playing around with different ingredients to make lovely soaps I have never looked back - I absolutely love it!
This passion leads to lovingly crafted soaps and skin care products that I take great pride in and that I think you will see in the quality.
Everything I sell is handmade from scratch using natural and sustainably sourced ingredients - because I care about the welfare of the wildlife living in the forests where palm oil is farmed! And there is definitely NO animal testing involved.
My ingredients have been specifically chosen for their cleansing and nourishing properties, and essential oils added for a therapeutic and wonderfully fragrant experience.
The name Birch Lea Soaperie is dedicated to the house where I grew up which my dad built. There are beautiful birch trees in the garden and lea means meadow, plus birch essential oil is a lovely additive to cosmetic products, and lea represents my name - all reasons which made for ideal inspiration for my company name!
All my products have been assessed for safe use and have a cosmetic product safety report, as per the regulations covering the manufacture and sale of cosmetic products.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you find what you are looking for.
