The Story Behind Iremia Skincare

The Story Behind Iremia Skincare

“Creating something that would help me manage my sensitive and reactive skin has been a dream, and I hope that my products will help others in their journey to calm, healthy skin.”

 

The Background

Formulated to manage highly sensitive and reactive skin, Iremia Skincare offers a natural solution to calm, soothe and strengthen your skin.

Our name was inspired by a little town on the ocean in Southern Greece where I had my honeymoon, which evoked a sense of calm and stillness. This feeling is what I needed in my life every day but something I struggled to attain for many years. I was living in constant stress while working in a corporate job, with a small and growing family and struggling with allergic reactions, constant inflammation, and fatigue. Despite living a relatively healthy lifestyle, something was wrong, and my body was attempting to tell me something.

 

The Journey

During this time I didn’t know where to turn. I started to try everything from seeing specialists, using traditional products, and medication. My skin was constantly inflamed (I didn't know it was rosacea at the time), my energy was low and I had eczema on my body. I trusted a product that was on the market that claimed to me 'steroid-free', but found out that there were heavy steroids in it, which lead to my tipping point. I eventually found a naturopath that could help me, who made me aware that my body was in a constant state of stress. Along the way, I went through two miscarriages, and I was devastated. After all this, I decided to hone in on a thorough holistic health journey. Through all the devastation, I found a sense of strength to enable real change and the drive to move forward.

As a part of my health journey, I started with searching for solutions to my highly reactive skin. I thought of all the ingredients that I didn't want in my routine. I started simplifying and found an incredible chemist that worked with me on the formulations. I wanted to start with three products - ones that targeted calming the skin, protecting the skin, and really strengthening the skin. By pairing these products with a new lifestyle as my daily ritual, I started to find more space for stillness which eventually lead to healing from within.
