My vision

Welcome to Clíodhna Skincare


Thank you for visiting Clíodhna Skincare, your home for
plant-based skincare products

As many of you may be aware, Clíodhna skincare is an offspring of The Soap Room. The necessity to rebrand came about after a desire to apply some changes to the existing line of production. I felt I had to let go of some products, lighten my range and refresh the entire business. So I decided to cease soaps production and to focus on the rest of the skincare. And of course since I enjoy so much working with oils, butters and scents I always have new ideas and
you will see some new products on the menu!
I chose the name Clíodhna as I liked the mystery around her and for those of you who don't know much about this interesting Goddess, here are some stories:
Said to have been the most beautiful woman in the world, Clíodhna is a Goddess of love, beauty and passion. She is also considered a powerful Banshee, and her realm is in South Munster, particularly County Cork 
where the tales of her deeds are deeply rooted in the folklore of the area.
The stories surrounding Clíodhna are fascinating and intriguing in their contrasting tones. In some she is a loving figure, while in others she is dark and dangerous. This mixture of representations makes her 
one of the most interesting Irish mythological figures.
Clíodhna lived in the divine realm of Tír na nÓg and had three brightly coloured birds that surrounded her at all times. Having eaten apples from one of the sacred trees in Tír na nÓg, the birds were in possession of magical healing powers: the story tells that the birds would sing a beautiful song and lull those afflicted with sickness or injury to sleep. 
Upon awakening, all ailments would have been healed.

Beside this fascinating story of the Goddess Clíodhna, the simple philosophy of looking after your health, and the health of the planet still remains as strong as ever.
As a child growing up in Italy, I always had a deep connection to the earth. We lived on fresh produce, bought in the local market. Not only was it the healthy choice, it was delicious, seasonal and environmentally sustainable.
 Now living in Galway, Ireland, I bring that same sensibility to the natural skincare products I create. I source the best natural ingredients, organic where possible, and by using traditional methods, I create skincare products which will nourish your skin, make you feel healthier and happier, while keeping a deep connection to the earth.
 For thousands of years, people have been making skincare products using traditional methods with natural products. Only recently they have become mass-produced items full of chemicals, which may not be suited to your skin.
 By switching to Clíodhna skincare products, you will be doing your skin - and the world - a favour. The entire skincare range is free from alcohol, palm oil, mineral oils or paraffins, parabens and fragrances.
Also, none of the products are tested on animals. 
Here’s to healthy skin, and a happier world.
