We are Holos Skincare
Holos is luxurious plant-based aromatherapy skincare that protects the skin from the signs of ageing.
We hand produce our products, and design facial and body treatments that enhance the experience a client gets when having our products applied by a professional Therapist.
Prevention is better than cure
Holos uses absorbent plant ingredients that provide your skin with nutrients that help to prevent the signs of ageing. We encourage people to think of their skincare like food. Would you wait until you’re 40 to start eating vegetables? No! Then why wait until you’re 40 to consider good ingredients for your skin?
A Comfort blanket to the senses and velvet to the skin
Holos provides benefits to the skin with its use of lipid and antioxidant rich plant oils. Essential oils nurture the skin and because of their ability to absorb into the bloodstream, have a positive effect on the wellbeing of the user.
We want to make every woman feel special by giving her a skincare product that she can use in the way she desires to add vitality to her skin, her well being and her world.
We encourage women to be different, to experiment with their skincare, to not follow the rules. If you want to use that Exfoliant as a mask, do it. If you want to put a body oil in her hair, do it. We want women to know themselves, to spend time with their skin, lovingly massaging Holos into their skin and basking in the aromas as the nurturing ingredients melt within.
Niamh Hogan, Holos creator was inspired by the clients she met in her clinic during her 15 years as a holistic therapist.
“While men usually presented for pain, women came with a myriad of issues ranging from low mood and energy to stress, anxiety and hormonal issues. I recognised that all women were different, some bored, some busy, some sad, some just fine but in need of some “me time”.
Working with these women inspired me to create blends of essential oils that helped make them feel better and have a positive effect on them. I saw how a combination of various massage treatments and essential oil blends made a difference in the lives of these women. I wanted to explore how I could encourage greater use of essential oils in everyday lives.
I began to play, in my kitchen, with my blends of essential oils used in my massages and added them to creams I made from plant oils like coconut, sweet almond, jojoba and argan. I soon began to see how these blends also had very positive benefits on the skin and so Holos Skincare was born. I tried and tested them on customers at markets before taking Holos to the health and beauty shelves all over Ireland.”
The treatments Niamh administered to her clients have become the deeply therapeutic treatments a Holos Therapist will use while applying Holos Skincare to their customers.
Holos Skincare is:
- Award winning
When we choose our ingredients, we choose carefully. We use plant-based ingredients because they absorb into the skin easily due to their miniscule molecular components, so when you use Holos on your skin, the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids (omegas or lipids) absorb into the skin and help to maintain its health and youthfulness.
“We love Oil” and we’re not afraid to use it, in fact we use lots of it, coconut, jojoba, sweet almond, grapeseed, rosehip and argan! Everybody needs oil. Good fats are needed in our diet. We also need them in our skin. Omega rich oils absorb into the skin and add a subtle plumpness that helps to smooth out fine lines. More oil means more hydration because the water can’t escape through the oil. More oil means no dry skin. More water means no dehydration.
Our blends of essential oils are chosen for the effects they have on skin healing and hydration. They also have positive effects on the well-being of the user. Because of the miniscule molecules in Essential oils, they can even penetrate the blood stream and so have a positive effect on the well-being giving you that feel good we talk about.
Organic Botanical extracts
We use extracts of cucumber and aloe vera to cool and heal the skin and to provide gentle topical protection adding to the richness of the absorbent plant oils.
Gentle on sensitive skin, organic cocoa and shea butters are antioxidant rich, hydrating and softening. Shea butter is also a great collagen booster.
Organic Botanical Waters
We use various aromatic plant waters. Rose in our “Love Your Skin” range and Juniper and in or “This is More” range. All are gentle on sensitive skin and promote healing and relief to inflammation.
Hyaluronic Acid and Anti-ageing
One of the contributing factors to premature ageing in the skin, alongside loss of collagen and lipids in the skin is dehydration. Hyaluronic Acid, in its more absorbent form of Sodium Hyaluronate attracts water and holds it in the skin. It is said to be able to hold up to 600 times its weight in water.
