about us

La Marcotterie is a line of French inspired minimalist skincare handmade with love using all natural ingredients. From moisturizing lip balms to calming bath salts, there is something for every bath and body-lover to discover.

La Marcotterie started as a late-night hobby in 2015 by maker and designer, Elodie Marcotte. Today, her skincare line has grown into an exciting and sophisticated brand that is loved by Canadians and minimalists worldwide.

Carefully curated and crafted by hand, each product starts from scratch in Gatineau, Quebec.

If I told you I'm a civil engineer, I bet I'd see a smile and confusion on your face...but indeed I am :) In 2017, I dived into the world of creativity, botanical ingredients and hard work. The smell of soap turned out to be super addictive 🖤

I started reading a lot about soap making as an alternative way to treat my eczema! Having a bachelor degree in Engineering, the science side of soap making did not scare me at all. I reopened my laboratory notebook right where I left it and started to experiment! I fell deeply in love with making my own skincare products and being my own boss! I think my mission is to combine the heritage process of soap making with modern minimalist ideas!
