Let us explain a little more….
Natural and holistic
We love nature, we love the gifts the earth gives us and produce our products using ingredients derived from natural sources. Respecting the benefits of scientific invention we use safe modern preservation systems to keep the users of our products safe.
We believe in holistic lifestyles, in making healthy choices in all aspects of life to better our lives and in essence to ‘be happy’. What you put on your skin contributes to this happiness and so we have created products that not only give you great skin but also benefits the well-being. Essential oils can enter the bloodstream and make the user feel good!
Being holistic means that we look at each and every customer as an individual. Instead of preaching “our” way, we encourage the customer to find “their own” way while harmonising our products with their chosen way. Why not use our body oils as a cleansing oil or use a night cream like a mask? Have fun and play with our products. Be brave, trust in yourself and understand what is good and right for you.
Handmade in Ireland
We are proud of where we come from, the emerald Isle, so green and close to nature. It is important to us to create our products in Ireland and to grow within our community to contribute to the betterment of it by creating employment and teaching others the skills involved in creating and bringing a skincare product to market. It is vital to us that real people mix, pour, inhale the aromas, feel the textures and package our products. We want our customers to know that at every step of our production process, care has been taken to bring you the very best of plant-based aromatherapy skincare.
We do not test on animals and put measures in place to ensure that none of our raw materials have been tested on animals. We work only with ethical companies who do not support animal testing.
In Holos we use ingredients that come from reputable farmers that have received a fair price for their products. As we grow we will forge stronger relationships with these farmers to cut out middle people and ensure that the farmers get even more for their product. We are especially proud of our Argan Oil which comes from the Union of Women’s Cooperatives of the Arganera in Morocco. The Union is a co-op owned by and run by women.
Mindful of the environment
Because we like pretty things we like to have crisp fresh looking packaging while playing with block colours to show our fun side. To this end we make sure that our boxes can be recycled easily by using cardboard.
Our oils are kept fresh and safe by using amber glass which is recycled all over the world. However to reduce carbon emissions we only use glass for our oils and use the lighter material PET plastic for all of our creams. This is a form of plastic that can be recycled and because of its lighter weight, it is less of a drain on emissions produced during transport. Caps and pumps on our products are light weight aluminium, which is one of the world’s most recycled materials (¾ s of the world’s aluminium has already been recycled).
We never waste products and anything that is not consistent with what our customers get. Instead of throwing away we use ourselves. Working with local businesses in our “box reuse scheme” we collect clean boxes from local businesses and use to transport Holos products to our customers.
