OUR DIFFERENCE & VALUES
Kind to Nature Kind to You
For that reason we have been very select in sourcing cruelty free ingredients including organic plant oils, essential oils and plant actives blending these to form highly active nourishing products.
Our skin is our largest organ and hence we need to look after it more than most would think. Therefore, it is vital you know and trust what you are applying to your skin just as much as you consider what you eat.
We grow, wildcraft and process our own herbs organically with which we hand blend with organic carrier oils (some Irish grown) to produce skin enhancing and environmentally friendly sustainable cruelty free Natural Skincare Products.
Never do we or will we use ingredients that have been tested on animals or will we work with any company that is linked to animal testing. This is a redline we feel very strong about.
We aim to be environmentally responsible and in formulating our products we have spent much time sourcing alternatives that match cosmetic function but are produced close to our location so we reduce airmiles of ingredient transportation.
We avoid using glass packaging on account it is heavy and therefore costs more in emissions to transport as empty of completed dispatched products. Instead we use environmentally sustainable lightweight aluminium cans, bottles etc.
Where present these are listed at the end of the ingredients section.
NO ANIMAL TESTING / CRUELTY FREE
There is absolutely no need for this and choose only to test on Humans. Here at Lughnasa we believe that being kind to nature is being kind to you.
We use primarily aluminium, glass and polyethylene terephthalate (PET/PETE) plastic in our packaging and we encourage you to reuse or recycle our packaging where possible.
As part of our research we undertook a study of packaging materials and it was shown that aluminium is by far the most environmentally sustainable packaging material we can use on account of its recycling, upcycling potential.
business. Established by Dr. Oscar Phoenix who has formulated these unique skin nourishing products using organic and Irish grown where possible.
We hand blend our herbal oils and hand make our products. Some of the raw materials are imported from ethical and trusted suppliers – we do not import finished products.
For example when kept in the cold shea butter can aggregate into tiny particles but there is nothing wrong with the product – return it to a warmer space and it will be as before.
In fact, we use Irish grown certified organic plants oils already thus cutting down on carbon emissions while supporting Irish businesses. In collaboration with the Organic Centre in Rossinver, Leitrim we grow our own organically certified Calendula flowers to produce our wonderful oils.
