We have been stocking the delightful natural cosmetics from Donegal Bog Cotton for over a year, a popular range of soaps, moisturisers, lip balms and candles.
Marian and Patricia, the founders of Donegal Bog Cotton, have been life-long friends. Both have been bakers and makers for many years and sold produce at markets. Natural cosmetics had al-ways been of great interest to them and when they spotted an ad for a soap making class given by an African lady in a local hall, they jumped at the chance. That was the start of their journey and they never looked back.
With family connections in Donegal, they and their families have holidayed together over many many years in the Falcarragh area before eventually establishing a permanent base there. For them the bog cotton flower evokes the very essence of Donegal with its great expanses of blanket bog. It is an iconic plant of the bog, found in abundance and much loved. Donegal Bogcotton Co. was was a natural choice for them when picking a name for the company, being synonymous with wild and natural beauty.
Donegal Bogcotton scents and oils are sourced from Irish suppliers where possible, and Marian and Patricia always prioritise eco-friendly raw materials
