We recently sent one of our talented Spa therapists, Sheree, for a unique experience with Irish beauty house Voya.
The brand strive to bring spa goers the full power of nature in its purest forms by using their hand-harvested certified organic seaweed and their knowledge of the local traditions of seaweed baths and seaweed treatments in all their products.
To really understand the benefits of this wonderful natural ingredient, Sheree was given the exciting opportunity to don her welly boots and meet members of the Voya team on the beach! She was able learn more about the sustainable harvesting practices Voya use to ensure that they don’t damage the delicate coastal environment that provides the Irish beauty house with their certified organic seaweed.
The therapeutic properties of wild seaweed have long been known along the Irish coast. At the beginning of the 20th century there were an estimated 300 seaweed bath houses in Ireland but as the tradition had seen a significant decline due to a population shift away from the Atlantic coasts and the rise in popularity of un-organic treatments, they tended to fall into disrepair and remained unopened for many years, until Voya’s revival of these seaweed baths houses!
You too can discover the benefits by indulging yourself with Voya’s Organic Illuminating Facial available at the Spa at Galgorm. This deeply detoxifying treatment, helps to brighten, even skin tone and increase clarity, perfect for summer skin!
