We want to shine a light on Irish brands focusing on sustainability and what better day to do it. This is the second blog post in this series and many more to come. Check out the five brands below and have a scroll through their socials, some really great stuff here!
A natural, ethical and environmentally friendly skincare company based in Stoneybatter, Dublin. Their products are produced in small, fresh batches and sold in recycled bottles. With only natural ingredients used, they are a great alternative to standard beauty products that contain nasty chemicals.
Their range includes cleansing oil, face masks, lip balm, perfume and loads more, plus they smell amazing. We are delighted to have some of Oxmantown products in store at the Seafront.
A luxury bedding brand that is affordable, made from organic cotton and Fairtrade. What more could you want? The brand was founded by a Mother and her daughters who had become frustrated by the lack of poor quality brands and set out to create the best bedding in the world.
Their website offers some great information not only on the brand itself but on Fairtrade and organic cotton. Check them out!
Lil & Izzy is an award winning Irish brand inspired by her children. Their products are designed in Ireland and made from premium organic cotton and recycled materials.
