Start-up Story: Lucy Annabella

Colleen was inspired to create Lucy Annabella Organics when she realised that ‘being organic’ is as much about what we put on our body as what we put into it.

About Lucy Annabella Organics

At Lucy Annabella we believe in Organic. All our essential and vegetable oils are carefully sourced around the globe and brought back to Ireland where we craft them into beautiful organic cosmetics and fragrance products. Our sourcing and production methods have won us accreditation with the soil association and the aromatherapy trade council and result in the most luxurious organic skincare cosmetics.

Our products are inspired by nature and supported by science. Our packaging is gentle on the globe and leaves little impact on our earth. To protect the Lucy Annabella Organics ingredients the products are contained in glass containers. Thepackaging is printed using Soya Ink on recycled paper approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Lucy Annabella Organics is 100% Irish owned, created, blended and bottled in Co Tyrone. Our initial Luxe range consists of 12 products including our two 92% organic. Antioxidant Aromatic Body Moisturisers, two 100% Organic Treatment Oils, four 96% Organic Bath Milks and four Aromatic candles in unique combinations of organic essential oils with aromas which take relaxation to almost religious levels.

‘Our health is paramount to our happiness’

Colleen was inspired to create Lucy Annabella Organics when she realised that‘being organic is as much about what we put on our body as what we put into it. Colleen is a Complementary Therapist and Clinical Aromatherapist who had been an organic health enthusiast for along time and lives by the ethos that ‘Our health is paramount to our happiness’. So in 2011 after travelling all over the world from Ireland, London, Thailand, Australia, Provence, France and beyond in search of knowledge and the finest ingredients and organically dedicated farmers, Colleen felt it had become time for her to actively combine all aspects of her life’s loves and purse her passion, to formulate and blend beautifully organic ingredients and share them.

In September 2011 after pharmaceutical approval, accredited certifications gains and branding complete Lucy Annabella Organics LUXE Range was launched. All the blends are formulated by Colleen and are free from Chemicals and Parabins, which exist in a lot of on the shelf products today.

Since September 2011 following great support from Ulster Bank, Invest NI and the Propel Programme Lucy Annabella Organics is being exported to Spain, Austria, Italy, Ireland and is stocked in Luxury Stores such as Harvey Nichols, Avoca, Blow Ltd, Mc Elhinneys and Arnotts.

You can buy all of the LUXE Range on the website and you can keep up to date with all the Lucy news on our Social Media Platforms Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Blogger.
