Votary began at the kitchen table of makeup artist, Arabella Preston. Arabella started blending pure plant oils to cleanse her own skin, and to prep the skin of her high profile clients. Thrilled by the transformative power of the cleansing and facial oils she made, she teamed up with friend and entrepreneur, Charlotte Semler, to create Votary.
At Votary we are passionate about the power of plant oils and botanical actives to give you healthy, dewy skin whatever your age.
Beautiful skin begins with properly clean skin, which is why the Votary cleansing routine is at the heart of everything we do. Votary cleansing oils and 100% pure cotton face cloths are simply the best way to clean and care for your face. It’s where great skin begins. The Votary range now spans cleansing oils, facial oils, deeply nourishing creams, masks and powerful serums to give you healthy, happy, glowing skin.
