A moisturising and hydrating lip balm, handmade in Dublin, made with beeswax, sweet almond oil, coconut oil, melissa and either sweet orange or citrus notes. Each in a handy little tin for on the go, these make a thoughtful present paired with a botanical hand lotion or calendua and lavender balm to keep cold, chapped winter skin at bay.
Founder, Amy Cahill has a background in therapeutic massage, aromatherapy and holistic beauty. As a therapist working with clients with many different skin types & skin concerns, she realised that there was a distinct lack of natural and sensitive skincare products on the Irish market. Through research and training, she came to the conclusion that skincare products do not need to be loaded with chemicals. Instead, she sought to create products with simple, active and natural ingredients for the skin to function & look it's healthiest. And so Oxmantown Skincare was born. Based in Stoneybatter, Dublin, ingredients used in Amy's products are selectively sourced for their therapeutic properties and organic credentials.
We asked Amy to give us a further insight into her inspiration and making process. Read her 'Maker Story' here.
