ABOUT SIOBHAN

I was a cosmetic executive working in conventional beauty when I was set on a new path to natural beauty after discovering how toxic the products were that I was using. My new discoveries contradicted my already organic and healthy lifestyle that I had adopted when I began having children, and if I cared about the foods I ate and the ingredients in them, why would I not care about the ingredients I’m putting on the largest organ of my body – my skin? So began my passionate research into natural beauty and helping women find a more sustainable and healthier answer to beauty.

ORGÁNACHS™ is the Gaelic spelling for the word “Organic” and my journey to find authentic, high-performing organic skincare began in Ireland, where I found my first organic beauty brand to bring back to the states. I opened the premier organic beauty shop in Connecticut in 2016. The driving force behind my business has been a desire to help women make better, more informed choices, to let women know what works – and that natural, organic products are not only better for us, but I believe actually work better than their conventional counterparts. Searching for luxurious organic skincare with the purest ingredients led me to find only the best products that I believe every woman should have the opportunity to experience.

Where nature and beauty connect

THE APPROVAL PROCESS

We have done the work for you, relentlessly searching for the best clean beauty products on the market––without compromise. I have carefully vetted brands from the U.S. and Europe that deliver what women want -only the most natural ingredients should be absorbed into our skin. I know that the personal care industry allows far more toxins in our products than I feel are necessary or safe, so I have taken the steps to fully examine each ingredient in every product.

Here is my four-step approval process.

 

Curation

We don’t carry every product that’s available, but instead choose a highly curated selection of what we’ve found to be the most luxurious, effective, pure products on the market.

 

Research

The most important thing when buying beauty products is to know the ingredients list. We research to know what is safe and what is toxic, constantly updating our research base, as new information is studied and released. Every ingredient in a product is scrutinized and if it doesn’t align with our uncompromising standard of what should and shouldn’t be in skincare, we don’t move forward with it.

 

We make it our priority not to allow products that contain phthalates, hormone-altering chemicals, petroleums, parabens, synthetic fragrances, SLS, PEGS, Glycols, nanoparticles as well as many others, which can be found on the environmental organization site, Environmental Working Group’s(EWG), Dirty Dozen List. In addition, we avoid the ingredient phenoxyethanol in our product assortment, a common ingredient still used in most natural skincare products. Siobhan also goes further to understand the process behind the brands. The story that created the brand, the formulation of the products and where the ingredients are sourced is very important to her.

 

Testing

Once we know the product is safe our aesthetician, makeup artists and beauty sales staff test products for a set period of time for effectiveness. Siobhan also tests each product personally. We check to see how it works on different skin types and ages. We note if there are any adverse reactions.

 

Education

When we decide to include a new brand in our assortment we make sure there is a full education and training on each product. We become our customer’s resource for knowing the ingredients, benefits and how to best use the products

ORGÁNACHS™ offers award-winning brands that nourish, rejuvenate, replenish, heal, hydrate and protect your skin. We believe what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. We know we can take care of our skin without harming our health!
