Ortigia is a small Italian soap and perfume company founded in Sicily in 2006 by Sue Townsend. The luxurious range of soaps, perfumes, creams, candles and lotions is formulated from natural products indigenous to Sicily and inspired by the aesthetics, colors and fragrances of the most historic and tropical region of Italy.
The perfumes are distilled from the flowers of Sicily by the master perfumer Lorenzo Villoresi. The basis of all products is a natural fragrance and natural ingredients: olive oil, vegetable glycerin and organic dyes. No SLS (Sulfates, considered irritants to the skin), nickel or silicone; and the products are not tested on animals. Paraben-free, the range uses traditional products with modern ethics and integrity.
All Ortigia products are manufactured by small family businesses that pride themselves on the quality of their products. The highly decorative packaging is designed by Sue Townsend and is inspired by exotic Sicilian images and colors.
