Ottawa Beauty and Skincare brands

Updated: Feb 16, 2022

Ottawa has many many talented folk who run small businesses. This guide is geared towards natural beauty and skincare. I personally love some of these local brands and condone the natural and clean aspects of their products. There are so many ingredients involved in creating skincare and beauty products, some of which are more harmful and can cause irritation with prolonged use. I always find, the fewer ingredients the better!


Aromariss soaps are made using the cold process method to retain the inherent benefits of the natural ingredients. The soaps cure for a minimum of 6-8 weeks to ensure that the bar will be mild, firm and last longer. They use only natural ingredients such as herbs, clays, spices, and vegetable juices. All of the soaps contain least 20% shea butter. They are offering free pick-up in Orleans, free Ottawa delivery on orders over $45 and free shipping on Canadian orders over $90.
