Mokṣa – what does it mean?
It’s a Sanskrit word meaning liberation, bliss and inner peace.
All of our products are 100% natural, nutrient dense and ethically sourced.
We use organic ingredients where possible but are not currently certified organic although it’s something we are striving for in the future.
Every single one of our products has been lovingly and proudly handcrafted in Devon. We make them in very small batches to ensure the quality and freshness of everything we produce.
We believe that kindness is absolute key to happiness and wellbeing. Our products are meant for just that, being kind to yourself. We have designed them to be natural, gentle and suitable for all skin types.
We believe in total transparency. We list all our ingredients and don’t use any fillers or hidden extras. The ingredient list by law has to state the INCI name (The International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients), which is a system of names for ingredients of cosmetics based on scientific names and other Latin and English words. We know it can seem a bit confusing but all the ‘normal’ names are listed in brackets.
We absolutely believe in quality not quantity. We don’t over complicate our products with unnecessary ingredients. Every single ingredient we put in to our blends is there for a reason and we try to explain our reasoning for each one as much as possible.
We absolutely do not use any form of parabens, alcohol or fillers within our products. They are all oil based with no need for the added extras you’ll find elsewhere. You can find a full ingredient list on each product page. Find our more about our ingredients here
Moksa was dreamed up whilst my husband and I had taken a few months out from the London rat-race to travel this beautiful planet we live on. I had completed a natural skincare course before going travelling but at that time it felt like more of a dream than something I could actually do for a living.
But, as we travelled I began to get more and more excited about the possibility of having my own natural skincare business and began jotting down ideas; those ideas evolved and when the time came to make the journey home I had convinced myself that I could actually make my dream a reality. The word Moksa really resonates with me in so many ways. With my travel came a great sense of freedom and a definite sense of inner peace so it just felt so apt; with that Mokṣa was born.
Having been massively inspired by my travels, and particularly by India and all it’s glorious smells and sensations, I wanted to create a brand to incorporate the experiences I had. I was also adamant that the brand would carry through all the values that I had seen the effects of first hand. This planet and all the wonderful living things on it need all the loving care they can get, so having a business with strong values such as sustainability, ethically sourcing ingredients, minimal packaging and being cruelty free are so important to me.
I just want to share a little piece of my experience and happiness and if that is taking 10 minutes out every evening to just be kind to yourself by cleansing your face properly or enjoying a long hot bath on a Sunday evening to prepare for the week ahead, then that’s great. I wanted Mokṣa to be about taking that time because it is so important to enjoy some ‘me time’ in a world which can sometimes be so crazy that it all gets a bit lost. I really hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy dreaming them up and creating them!
