The cleansers, oils, serums and spritzes in Siobhan McKinley’s new beauty shop, Orgánachs Farm to Skin, are natural and organic. Each sleek bottle and wrapped cube whisper promises to make your skin glow with health. One look at Siobhan’s flawless skin and you’ll believe. “I was appalled and disgusted to learn about the amount of toxins and chemicals that woman unknowingly apply to their bodies,” she says. “I felt impassioned to inform them about a better, healthier choice.” She specifically mentions children, pregnant women and those who are, or have been, affected by cancer.
She launched her boutique “as a platform for people to get this information and find brands that have never been launched in Connecticut, until now.” VOYA skincare from Ireland, for example, is 100% organic seaweed extract with essential oils, vitamins and minerals. Other lines are: Earth tu Face, Pai skincare, Bottega Organica, rms beauty, Vapour Beauty, Tenoverten nail polish, de Mamiel, Dr. Alkaitis, Ursa Major, Meow Meow Tweet, Suntegrity suncare and Zoe Organics.
