Hi, I’m Marta. I’m the owner, soap maker, kid wrangler behind the life@43°south. Very much a green witch, you can often find me bare feet in the garden, in the paddocks collecting dandelions or nettles or back on the farm making potions.
I have a very sensitive skin and suffer from psoriasis. Now, I can’t cure my psoriasis, it’s a genetic disorder, but I can, with proper diet, our clean way of living and my soaps manage it. I have been using my soaps on my kids since they were babies, too.
I’m very passionate about giving your skin the best there is. I like to use a lot of botanicals in my soaps. All botanicals used have healing properties and may help with various skin conditions. These may include: psoriasis, eczema, acne, aging, etc. Our botanical soaps are made with oils carefully infused with the beneficial plants and are only lightly scented with essential oils or left unscented.
Our soaps do not contain any artificial colourings or fragrances. Only best ingredients go into our soaps including botanicals grown organically on and/ or foraged around our farm, beautiful local Tasmanian honey and coarse filtered beeswax, our own organic raw goat’s & sheep’s milk, raw jersey milk sourced locally as well as house brewed green tea kombucha. Always striving to use the best Tasmanian ingredients wherever we can.
Hope your skin loves my soaps.
Marta & Co x
