After receiving a soap making course as a gift I became hooked and after the course was finished I found myself still hankering after making soap. Soon after, that progressed into making bath bombs and other bath treats for friends and family. After a massive leap of faith I decided I would turn my new found passion into a little business. I spent the next year refining my ideas and recipes and then saving for all the equipment, ingredients and cosmetic safety assessments I would need. I finally launched Ascent in January 2017 with an initial small range of handcrafted soaps and bath bombs.
I adore things that work to a theme and as I wanted the business to have a large part of myself in it, I decided that each range was all going to be part of a themed collection based on some of my favourite things. One of my passions is travel and history, so The Journey Collection was born which features six products that are all based on different destinations around the world. Some of which I've been lucky enough to visit and some which are on my bucket list.
I also love to experiment with shapes and colours which I hope will transform your daily bathing and beauty routine into an indulgent experience. I use the finest ingredients and everything is made in my home on the Lincolnshire coast in small batches to ensure freshness.
