YouOrganic Skincare is an indie Cosmetics Company based in Dublin, Ireland. It was founded in 2012 by Ursula Elmes – a Dublin based practicing Acupuncturist and Holistic Skin Therapist. Using her own blend of essential oils and herbs, she applied a formulation to her skin everyday and after a short time realised she no longer suffered from sensitivity and the condition of her skin improved. But what made Ursula’s formulation different? It’s simple: what she created didn’t have the same harsh, irritating, synthetic ingredients and artificial colors other commercially made products did.
It was a light bulb moment that sparked Ursula’s desire to create a product line using only ingredients as natural and as pure as we are, and that ultimately works in synergy with our skin. After countless batches, feedback from test audiences (friends & family) and with the help of a product designer YouOrganic was born. What has resulted is a Natural Cosmetic range that is gentle on skin, sourced from fair trade suppliers, contains no nasty chemicals and against animal testing.
In 2013 YouOrganic won Silver at The Sustainable Beauty Awards in Paris, France.
