How did Organic Peat - the surface layer of the waterlogged earth found in bogland - find its way into skincare? The answer lies in the unexpected beginning to the Bog Skincare story, when an Irish farmer made the shocking discovery of a young man’s body in the bog of his land. When the authorities came they determined that this body was in fact 2,000 years old; the nutrient-rich organic peat in which the body was immersed had kept it perfectly preserved. Organic Peat’s ability to nourish and preserve skin comes from its powers as a potent detoxifier and collagen booster. Brimming with natural antioxidants, essential oils and fatty acids, this unlikely skincare hero promotes cell regeneration - helping to protect skin from ageing. Bog Skincare’s innovative collection harnesses the astonishing powers of peat along with a trio of skin boosting ingredients in two potent, certified organic face masks - Energise & Detoxify and Hydrate & Revitalise.
New partnership with Terracycle ZEROWASTE, Bog skincare is proud to state that all products are 100% recyclable.
