Essential Soap Company has been a vendor of the Davidson Farmers Market for over 13 years! Started in 1995, ESC was founded on the principles of aromatherapy. ESC is committed to ingredients and processes that create soaps customers find to be mild and gentle to their skin.
All of ESC’s skin-care products are hand made in small batches in the Cotswold area of Charlotte using Essential Oils and all-natural ingredients, locally sourced if available. ESC does not use animal fat, palm oil, artificial fragrances nor sodium laurel sulfate in our products. Make sure to stop by and talk with Raynel from Essential Soap Company this Saturday at the DFM!
