From the Founder:
Ever since I was a teenager I had what I call angry skin. Skin that had eczema and rosacea flare-ups; that was dehydrated and raw; that would burn and become inflamed when applying “sensitive” skin creams – it was a struggle and was exasperated with stress, food and the sun. On the hunt for a solution, I would scour beauty store offerings, reading ingredients and testing new innovations. I sought the advice of doctors, dermatologists and estheticians. It was through the process of working with a Naturopath on lifestyle, dietary adjustments and self-education, that I was led toward natural products and holistic solutions. However, after investing in the trial of many brands, I still couldn’t find a solution that was able to relieve the redness, inflammation and burning I was experiencing.
The last straw came after I had used a product made overseas for children suffering from eczema that claimed to be all-natural but in fact was full of very strong steroids after being tested by an independent third-party lab. I needed a solution that I could trust, that was transparent about their ingredients and desperately wanted to help those who also had highly reactive skin like mine.
I enlisted the help of a local formulator and poured all of my career knowledge in the beauty and skincare industry with her personal experience to create Iremia Skincare. As the first-hand tester, I can confidently say these products provide the holistic relief I have been seeking after all these years. My skin has never been happier and it's a joy to be able to share these products with my young children as well.
The name “Iremia” was chosen because it is the Greek meaning for “calm’. It also pays homage to where I had her honeymoon and the essence of the brand is truly reflected in the stillness that came with that trip. Like the name suggests, the brand’s main purpose is to be a natural solution to calm your skin while leaving it comfortable, healthy and glowing. Iremia Skincare is made locally, ethically and with care to assure quality.
