Rí Na Mara is a seaweed cosmetic company based in my beautiful home town of Galway, Ireland and it is a beauty company that I have loved for years. Rí Na Mara uses organic hand-harvested, renewable seaweed to create a wide variety of nutrient rich and luxurious products. Rí Na Mara is an Irish name meaning “King of the Sea”. Years of research were put into creating award winning yet affordable organic products. Products are made in Ireland and the company is 100% Irish owned.
Rí Na Mara offers a huge variety of products at very affordable pricing. While clean beauty has come to the fore most recently, Rí Na Mara has been a leader in the field since its origin in 2004. Only the purest, natural ingredients are used. There are no parabens, no harsh chemicals and no animal testing. I had the pleasure of meeting Deirdre who is the master mind behind these beautiful products at the Christmas market in Galway (pictured above).
I began using the Face Mask 8 or 9 years ago and have been hooked ever since. I originally wrote about this amazing product in my blog post on All Time Favorite Skincare HERE. I am always trying out new products and love finding new products but this face mask is my top go-to mask for the last 8+ years. The clay-based mask along with wild organic seaweed and botanical extracts cleanse the skin while also hydrating the skin with essential mineral hydration. The skin is left cleansed from impurities, supple & refreshed. This is a must treatment once a week for me and at €16 / $18 is a steal. Top tip: Buy one HERE.
I have been trying out the facial serum which is again infused with natural organic goodness of marine and plant extracts. The serum is very lightly scented and so smooth on the skin. Proteins, nutrients and anti-oxidants all penetrate the skin helping out with laughter lines and any wrinkles. The serum is long lasting and is priced at a very affordable €25 / $29.
Other products on my list to try
Dried Seaweed Soak Bath
Wild organic seaweed is hand harvested and air dried to allow an at home spa experience. This mineral & vitamin rich Algae promises to relax, detox & re-energize.
Similar to the dried seaweed bath soak, this bath soak helps to re-energize and helps with aches from joints & muscles. Again, rich in lots of vitamins and minerals. I’m going to buy this one for after gym sessions in January.
Argan oil, Rosehip, Oat Oil and other natural oils nourish the skin. Wrinkles and fine lines are softened through the rich formula.
Ordering & Shipping
Luckily these fabulous products are all available to order HERE via Rí Na Mara and can be shipped both to Ireland and internationally including the US. Orders received before 2pm are shipped the same day! Certain pharmacies, spas and salons stock the products also in Ireland. I always stock up in Evergreen health store in Galway or bulk buy at the Christmas market every year!
