The Donegal Bog Cotton Company is based in Falcarragh, Co. Donegal and specialises in organic handmade cosmetics.
From small beginnings in 2014, Marian and Patricia have broadened their range of products from handmade soaps to moisturiser, lip balm and scented candles. Only the best quality organic ingredients are used and, where possible, are sourced in Ireland.
With a shared interest in the local flora, inspiration for scents and colours comes easily in Donegal. Drifts of Bog Cotton brighten the heathery hillsides in early Summer. Fuchsia and Cowslip bedeck the hedgerows and Sea Holly hides among the Marram grass in the shelter of the sand dunes.
All ingredients are sustainably sourced and are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly. Packaging is recyclable and is kept to a minimum and plastic is banished. The company featured in the Sustainable Pop Up section at the RDS Craft Fair in 2019. Clearly many people are now actively seeking to make better, more sustainable lifestyle choices. All Donegal Bog Cotton products are perfect for everyday use and make beautiful, thoughtful gifts.
