Hello there and Welcome to ISLAS Aromatics!
We are a Manila-based company in love with everything pretty, fragrant, therapeutic and natural. ISLAS is a one stop shop for aromatherapy supplies, cosmetic packaging and so much more.
The beginnings of ISLAS started out as a home-based soap giveaways business named Savon la Belle in the year 2000. Our first bar of soap was learnt from purchasing a Soapmaking Kit in Vancouver. From there we searched for local suppliers of raw materials (glycerin, dye and fragrance oils) and made soap for friends, and joined bazaars like Karl Edward, CWC and the Assumption bazaar to market our products. We also put up a free Yahoo Geocities site with pictures to showcase our works.
Our early search for raw materials provided the realization that Manila is truly lacking in variety and choice for soap & bodycare product crafters. Most local suppliers required high minimum orders and it seemed only a handful catered to startup entrepreneurs who could only afford to buy essential oils, fragrance oils and other supplies in small quantities. Online shopping was also then non-existent in Manila but was already starting to boom in the States where we would sometimes order our supplies.
From there, the dream was born of someday being able to provide Manila's local market and its producers with raw materials that are of:
- excellent quality
- have good variety
- priced reasonably
- available to buy online
Searching for the Best
Like you, we've gone through (and continuously go through) the ropes of sourcing for local and imported raw materials and packaging to use for making our own products. We’ve had our share of spending on great and not so great raw materials (buying the same product from different suppliers here and abroad) just to compare the quality. We’ve sifted out the bad weeds and established business relations with credible suppliers who give us excellent quality raw materials. As a result, we are able to offer you only the best, tried and tested products, raw materials and packaging to serve your needs.
At ISLAS we aim and strive to provide our customers with only the best raw materials at fair, reasonable prices. We believe that therapeutic raw materials, being provided by nature, should be accessible to all. We will never compromise quality for price and never dilute or alter any of our raw materials.
