VOYA: It All Began In the Sea

Most of the natural organic skin product I’ve tried have either slightly aromatised or neutral scent; VOYA body scrub is different – the smell takes me to the wild sea shores with its distinct salt-water aroma. Here’s why:

VOYA started out as family-run seaweed baths on the wild Atlantic coast of Ireland. As the popularity of the baths grew, more and more customers started asking if there was some way they could replicate the soothing effects of the baths at home. The seed was planted for the future skincare brand, VOYA.

This truly niche brand is focused on creating genuinely organic, seaweed-based products and spa treatments. It offers results-driven products based on the highest-quality botanical ingredients and aromatherapy oils.

Strictly following their principles to create an organic product and not wanting to compromise on the quality, the founders faced a long and challenging journey of developing the first genuinely organic seaweed-based cosmetic products in the world.

I have been lucky to have tried one of the top VOYA products – Effervescence Nourishing Sugar Scrub.
This exfoliating seaweed and sugar gel scrub removes dead skin cells leaving your skin silky smooth. It exfoliates with sugar particles and nourishes your skin with a blend of seaweed and sunflower seed oil. The result is a revival of a rough and dull looking skin into vividly refined, softer, silky smooth skin.

So why seaweed?

The versatile marine product naturally cleanses and purifies your skin, helping to improve its suppleness and elasticity. It helps to reduce the signs of ageing by toning, smoothing, moisturising and stimulating skin cells. Sourcing its nourishment from the sea, it absorbs an incomparable abundance of beneficial ingredients. Besides, seawater and blood plasma have an almost identical chemical composition, and no plant known has a comparable quantity of minerals and vitamins.

What’s more, VOYA’s seaweed products are alive! Seaweed dries when the tide goes out, and to prevent it from dying and keep its cell structures intact, it has developed a natural defence against this: slowly reducing its water content and entering a period of stasis, or dormancy. Because of VOYA’s ability to replicate this, they don’t have to treat their seaweed with harmful preservatives, and so the full recuperative power of wild seaweed is brought to you in each product.

Pure ingredients, ancient traditions and sustainable processes come together at VOYA to create a range of products and treatments that achieve exceptional results.
