A little about us


We are situated in Bulimba,  Queensland , Australia.

At the studio, we use the finest botanical ingredients, creating a stunning range of ethical, stylish and environmentally-conscious products. Most of the products in our range happen to be vegan friendly.

Our preparations are free from nasty additives and are preservative-free where possible. We pride ourselves on sourcing our ingredients locally, as well as our packaging. All of our products are made in small batches by hand and will always be produced that way. Quality assurance is important to us. We have gone right back to basics and keep our formulas as simple and pure as we can, to avoid allergies and irritations.

Our beeswax polish range has been tested and holds a current safety data sheet so you can be assured our polish is safe.  Our Botanics furniture paint(chalk paint) range is perfect for a matte finish that many prefer for furniture painting.

Botanics contains clays, chalk and natural pigments to give you that chalky, velvety finish that you are looking for. We do not use masking agents in our paints, and our paints and finishes are fully eco approved. We take a keen interest in what happens to your skin, our environment, our water ways and animal life.

Botanics has been our premier paint range until the last year. 

Ultimate Finish mineral paint is a fusion of technology and natural pigments, creating a hard wearing, long lasting paint range that is eco acrylic and minimal prep.

Lastly our most recent paint range is European Milk fresco. Premixed liquid milk paint that is non chippy. You as the user have full control of this product.

We have created a range of decorative paints and finishes that will enable you to create many projects with many different looks; looks that are timeless classics, looks that are time worn and looks that are slick and smooth like our liquid carbon is.

We love the fact that as manufacturers, we can make a difference to the world around us.

L'ESSENTIEL really does encompass the very best of everything.
