Reap the benefits of homegrown ingredients and handmade formulas by embracing a natural, Irish-made approach with Blumáin Organic Skincare.
Hailing from Ballydesmond Co. Cork, a town steeped in history and known for its immersive culture, founder Sinéad Murphy, a well-revered and experienced beauty therapist, salon owner and mum of 3, struggled to find a skincare range that ticked off her priorities list – products that were Irish Made, natural, organic and effective. When she couldn’t find one that she felt she could truly stand over, she developed her own – Blumáin Organic Skincare.
Blumáin Organic Skincare embodies a pure and natural Irish-made ethos through and through, from the ingredients, all organic, natural and certified by the Irish Organic Association, up to the formulation and manufacturing process, with all products hand produced in a purpose-built workshop in Ballydesmond, Co. Cork.
With a product range currently spanning 25 offerings across Facial, Body Care, Candles and Diffusers, Blumáin Organic Skincare is packed with a unique blend of the finest organic vegetable oils, floral waters, butter, essential oils, botanical extracts and infused with a host of beautiful aromatherapy ingredients. The unique blends are also packed full of active ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Coenzyme Q10, and Vitamins with no artificial colours, fragrances, GMO’s, parabens or sulphates. This unique combination not only makes an impact on the skin but gave Sinéad the results she wanted to see as a therapist.
From the recently launched Mandarin & Himalayan Salt Scrub, RRP €39 / £34, Serenity Body Oil, €35 / £30.50, and AHA Tonic, €37 / £32, to the award-winning Geranium & Bamboo Facial Polish, RRP €24 / £21, and the coveted Hyaluronic Acid & Multi-Vitamin Serum RRP €34 / £29.50, the full range includes everything one needs to not only care for the skin but to aid in utter relaxation for the mind and body.
When speaking about the range and development process, Sinéad said, “I wanted to make luxurious, effective, organic skincare affordable to everyone. I opened my salon, Finishing Touch Beauty Salon, in 2010 in the middle of the recession and found that the majority of my clients were unable to afford the expensive salon products on offer. I couldn’t find anything else I was happy to work with so I set out to create my range. I studied natural cosmetics and found a real passion for creating products to aid any issues my clients may be suffering. I truly believe that every product should be packed with functional, beneficial ingredients, not fillers, thickeners and artificial scents! I love the creativity of being able to develop my products suited to my customer’s wants and needs whilst encouraging us all to pamper ourselves and make self-care a must.”
