The SLOANE MARLEY started as a dream in Italy....
In 2013 I was traveling in Central Italy with my husband, our close friend and his new bride. Our friend Nicola is a fourth generation Italian winemaker and we became friends when I was selling his portfolio of boutique and family Italian wines. We stopped to visit an incredible organic winery in his portfolio. I noticed that they were saving the seeds and skins to use as a body scrub in the spa, on the property of the winery.
When I got home, I became obsessed with the idea of using this high quality byproduct of the winemaking process to create something nutritious for the skin. I set to work developing my own botanical ferment with batches upon batches of seeds and skins from different wineries, terroir, geography, and varietals.
In the end, together with several botanists, alchemists, and winemakers I have chosen ingredients that are pure, whole and deeply infused with nutrition. Each product we make is delicately handcrafted, hand packaged, and balanced with botanicals and essential oils for maximum relaxation and emotional balance.
Our products have Scandinavian names in honor of my heritage, and to begin with the principle that a connection to nature if your natural native state: by denying this, you live less in balance. The Scandinavian principles of "friluftsliv" or "free air life" and the concept of "hygge" or "natural contentment and coziness" are what we hope you feel when you use SLOANE MARLEY products.
We hold deep reverence for the earth, plant medicine, nature and our inherent right to take care of ourselves and relax.
From the water we drink, food we eat, and environmental toxins, and rancid, out of date or chemically infused skincare and body care, our bodies are essentially running on toxic fuel inside and out.
It's time we all returned to the center and the source.
It's time everyone had access to live confidently and comfortably in their own skin. It's time to amplify your nature.
Sending my very best,
