INSPIREDInspired by the rare and mystical landscape of the Burren,
Airmid brings a natural approach to skincare.
The Airmid story began in 2009 as a truly home-grown enterprise. Our son was born with eczema and, like many parents, we struggled to find a gentle and effective product that was also kind to the environment. As an organic horticulturist, Kevin looked to nature for inspiration. Pure Chamomile – with its calming and cleansing properties – was our first soap. We saw a great improvement in our son’s condition.
Who We Are
Since then, we have developed a wide range of skincare products to include lotion bars, shampoos and lip balms – all with nature at the heart of their design. As well, grooming has become an essential part of a man’s daily routine. Our Green Man range is designed to specifically meet the needs of men’s skin. We have held on to one principle as we have grown our range: if it doesn’t come from nature, you won’t find it in any of our Airmid products. It’s that simple.
CareA great deal of care goes into creating our products. And where we can, we shop local for our ingredients. Our raw honey and beeswax come from right here in the Burren; we clean it in our workshop to maintain purity. Being right on the Atlantic, our seaweed comes from Caherdaniel, Co. Kerry.
Our beautiful soap dishes are crafted by David Condon Woodcraft in Tralee. Even the coffee you’ll find in our soaps is roasted just a few miles away by Anam Coffee. Where we have to shop further afield, ethical sourcing is important to us – we use organic Shea butter from Ghana where it is processed by local women, who are paid a fair price for their work.
Traditional Cold Process Method
At Airmid, we only use the traditional cold process method. That means we keep all the goodness of the ingredients in the final product.
All our bars are cut by hand and are cured for at least 6 weeks to ensure a luxury, long-lasting product. Finally, we personally check every item before it’s boxed up in our eco-friendly packaging.
We have recently redesigned our packaging so that you can both see and smell our natural products, without the need to open them up.
You’ll find us beavering away in our workshop, situated in the breathtaking Burren, along Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way. Opening in September 2020, our extended premises – designed to have a low environmental impact – will give us the capability to meet the growing demand for our products from here in Ireland, and around the world.
We’re proud to showcase our products with retailers right across Ireland. Check out our website for our full range. Better still, come see us at Airmid HQ! Kevin Lynch and Tina Robinson Airmid Natural Handmade Skincare
