Description

Vasse Virgin is nestled in the heart of the Margaret River Region. At the end of the tree-lined drive, you'll find our Soap Factory - a converted machinery shed emitting the most wonderful aroma. A visit to the Factory allows you to witness the soap makers at work, as they hand blend a variety of luxurious natural body products using the finest extra virgin olive oil. Overlook the unique working factory and watch the entire process, from manufacture through to the individually hand packaged finished products. Chat with the soap makers, get advice on the best products for your skin type, and discover the unique characteristics of our natural and organic ingredients. Feel the difference by experiencing the products for yourself at our testing stations. Indulge in our complete range of skin and body care, ranging from moisturising lotions, skin balms and scrubs, to bath and massage oils, and shampoo.

The creation of Vasse Virgin emerged when Louis and Edwina Scherini's three children, who suffered from eczema and dermatitis, were advised by Doctors not to use commercial body products. The Scherini's were inspired to create a chemical free alternative, incorporating extra virgin olive oil and essential oils, excellent for those with allergies or sensitive skin. The complete range of skin, body and hair care products caters for customers of all skin types, or those simply looking for a natural alternative.

Vasse Virgin now also has a dedicated tasting room where you can sample a carefully selected range of olive oil varietals including estate and locally-grown extra virgin olive oils. For all those olive-lovers out there, a diverse array of both locally-grown and internationally sourced table olives await your tastebuds. Enjoy a hosted tasting of our gourmet products and the wonderful flavour characteristics in our olive oils - intense fruit characters with strong pungency and often a distinct peppery undertone. Taste the delectable preservative-free gourmet food using natural ingredients, and marvel at the variety of produce available.

A visit to the Vasse Virgin tasting room would not be complete without sampling the infamous Macadamia Pesto along with the scrumptious array of gourmet condiments ranging from hand-made tapenades, mustards, jams, pasta sauces and dukkah, to include a unique range of fruit vinaigrettes and balsamic vinegars, all made by our local Italian chef. It’s a virtual gastronomic delight!

Indulge in the ultimate Vasse Virgin experience by joining one of our workshops or masterclasses! Learn from our trained team as they guide you through an expert olive oil tasting, or teach you how to craft your very own natural products.

They had all kinds of samples of facial scrubs to try out. They had a lot of lotion for face and hands to test. You walk in to amazing fragrances. It's all good for your body and skin. Free of palm oil. Great place for Christmas gifts

Markus
Great venue with well spaced and laid out shelves.
Plenty of space to test products with sinks to was your hands after.
Great olives too!
We are going back for a Olive oil tasting event.

Gorgeous driveway entrance shaded with trees either side .... Made our way here for the first time as we were exploring our own backyard seeing what goodies we have in our region ...
Upon entering it was a true delightful experience displayed well and extremely appealing to the eye and nose with lovely aromas wafting...
Upon our arrival we were met with a real eagerness to serve us show us around and a few demos with the exfoliating scrubs hand washes etc
Left to the wander around to explore ..
Yes some items were very pricey but I've become used to that here in Australia..

Upon our departure we had a few questions relating to patchouli oil my girlfriend worked in perfumery for many years and we felt a little hostility and it just kind of went downhill after that ..

Nonetheless bought several items that I am happy with and did learn not to wear essential oils directly on the skin which I have been doing for years ...
Looks like I need to learn some more thanks to Google who will help
