Who We Are
Hi, we’re Christina & Jenny.
Welcome to our family business, formulating & manufacturing botanical cosmetics with sustainability and product excellence at its heart.
We began Essench in 2019 knowing we wanted to build a cosmetics brand that had product excellence and customer satisfaction. We want to pass on our experience in designing and producing products that represent our core values. Essench started as a retail business but we quickly discovered our love for the formulation and manufacture of natural products. We loved working with natural ingredients so much we both worked towards being qualified Herbalist. We recieved our qualifications in 2021.
Our award-winning formulas, herbal infusions, and cosmetic products are all developed in-house, are cruelty-free, palm oil-free, vegan-friendly, and use ethically sourced ingredients. We now use our expertise to assist people to build their perfect natural beauty brand, giving them as much help as they need in taking their ideas to fruition, and ensuring complete legal compliance to sell them online and on the high street.
The Heart of ESSENCH
All the ingredients we use in our formulas are naturally sourced from nature so, for this reason, we want to protect it the best we can. Sustainability is at the heart of every task.
We are so conscientious about sustainability, we incorporate methods of protecting our planet into everything we do here at Essench. Not only do we use sustainable packaging and packing materials, but even the chemicals and products we use to clean our lab is carefully selected to have the least amount of impact on the environment.
We also use minimal machinery to manufacture the products including manual labelling and filling equipment to reduce the amount of energy that we use to produce the products.
We Are Approved As A Supplier by the Complementary Medical Association
In order for a company to be accepted by The CMA as an Approved Supplier, the company needs to demonstrate a genuine commitment to ethical trading, safety, sustainability, excellence of products and services. In addition, the company will need to demonstrate that they have a genuine desire to contribute towards the development and growth of the complementary medical and natural health sector.

What We Don't Use
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Plant
The main aim is to reduce our waste along with our environmental impact, we do this by working with our clients to promote Reduce, Reuse and Recycle in their brand by using refill options and plastic free packaging solutions. More and more shoppers are becoming conscious of the impact businesses have towards the environment. Below are just a few examples of how we are contributing to the environmental ethos at the heart of Essench.
It’s not just our ingredients that are conscious, so are our processes including manual operated machinery. We want to create jobs not take them away
Work with our herbalists to create products that not only promote healthy skin but also stimulate the mind with aromatherapy blends
