Our Story


The EARTH MOTHER SOUL SISTER boutique/apothecary opened in 2002 (by sisters Rachel & Joanna) and distinguished itself by combining a passion for organic living with a contemporary design aesthetic. 

"We create & design EARTH MOTHER SOUL SISTER skin care with the ultimate wish-list of certified organic active ingredients, botanicals and plant oils. Inspired by a desire to create beautiful and highly effective products for the health, beauty and well-being of the individual. Each and every product is carefully considered and formulated to make it high performance and without compromise" 

A beautifully curated retail and treatment space; the apothecary/boutique has, for over 16 years, been cherishing and nurturing natural and organic health, beauty, well-being brands. Advising and helping customers with natural solutions for issues covering a wide range of concerns, has provided a wealth of experience and knowledge. The years of being on the ‘shop floor’ has given the sibling duo invaluable insights into what customers want, need and expect from their skin care products. 

Whilst doing what they love, the brand has organically grown and evolved. The ongoing conversation with their customers and clients, has helped inform at every phase of the development process of their own award-winning range.

EARTH MOTHER SOUL SISTER is certified organic by The Soil Association, Vegan and accredited by Cruelty Free International & Leaping Bunny programme.
