In an attempt to live a little cleaner, and therefore greener, from the beginning, we have always been focussed on the concept of ‘clean beauty’.

The terms ‘natural’ and ‘organic’ are circulated a lot in the beauty world, but it’s challenging to understand what clean beauty really means, especially when there are no legal standards for beauty brands on what can and cannot be labelled as natural or organic.

Can brands distract from the truth when it comes to the transparency of ingredients and their quantities? Yes. These blurred lines can often seem endless when all we want to know is whether what we’re using is both safe and effective!

We know it can often be a struggle to identify the authenticity of these claims. We constantly endeavour to ensure our collections are made as sustainably and natural as possible, while still being effective and luxurious.

We believe beauty should be clean, safe and non-toxic. It’s up to us, as consumers, to learn about what’s in our cosmetics. With this in mind, we specialise in organic, ethical and zero waste products so that you can always feel great about the products you’re using!

Making the switch to clean beauty might seem daunting, but we are here to help you find what works best for you and your skin.

Here’s some of our personal favourites…

Lavera. This brand stands for certified natural cosmetics that live up to the highest standards of the mainstream beauty consumer. With organic, natural and vegan products ranging from foundations, lipsticks and mascaras, this brand combines a lot of what we love at Dun Laoghaire Pharmacy. It combines classic herbal care products with special organic ingredients, plant milks and organic flower butter, and enrich their textures with high-tech ingredients.

Couleur Caramel. They provide a very easy choice of using 100% plant and mineral based cosmetics, with professional and long lasting quality in a vast array of colours. This organic and natural makeup takes care of your skin, whilst respecting the environment!

And last, but certainly not least, a personal favourite, exclusive at Dun Laoghaire pharmacy, Vitry. This sensational brand provides an incredible range of high-quality, durable and luxurious nail varnishes. Their formula has zero use of the chemical Formaldehyde, which is unsafe for use by cancer patients. This incredible feature makes these nail polishes unique. Being one of the only brands of its kind totally safe to use for cancer patients, the brand offers a refreshing change from always being told what you can’t use as opposed to what you can!
