Empowering Beauty With a Sunshine Soul
December 17, 2018
Inspired by the invigorating thermal sea spas, bracing air and therapeutic flora which abound in the mountains and azure coastline of the Adriatic, the soul of Saint Iris Adriatica (SIA) is a region which boasts more yearly sunshine than Sydney. This dynamic new British brand is the brainchild of Croatian-born, London-based luxury brand guru Sanela Lazic, a woman with a passion for action and a mission to reconnect time-stressed people with an untapped source of power – the bliss that comes from feeling truly alive in your own body.
‘Despite the wealth of elegant, science-driven beauty products we can choose from today, I still felt that bodycare lagged behind facial skincare in creating the powerful sense of wellbeing that comes with the naturally active Adriatic lifestyle,’ Sanela tells us. Like her mother and grandmother before her, she was raised on naturally-sourced ingredients for all-round health and beauty. ‘To this day, my grandmother never misses her evening ritual of massaging home-made oils and balms over her face and body,’ she says.
Taking traditional folk remedies as inspiration, Saint Iris Adriatica delivers potent, clinically-proven natural ingredients in sophisticated formulas with an instant, irresistible fjaka factor. It’s the perfect, natural all-round way to strengthen body and mind against city stress. Skin is smoother, brighter and radiant with wellbeing. You feel energised, nurtured and grounded – ready to take on the world.
FOLLOW YOUR FJAKA WITH ADRIATIC BLISS
Adriatic life is blissfully balanced. Time-pressure takes a back seat, as family, friends and great food are always priorities. And, while meditation can lead to states of bliss, Croatians believe that fjaka comes simply from doing what you love. So, if you enjoy an active lifestyle, yoga, a bracing walk by the sea or a wander in the forest inhaling the cool, aromatic air will do it for you. SIA commutes the bliss to the city, so you can follow your fjaka in the bathroom and on the go, whenever and wherever you need it. The handy antidote to urban stress that punishes mind, body and skin, these multi-tasking, easy-to-use natural formulas take sensuality to a blissful new level of get-up-and-glow.
AT THE HEART – THE PURE ESSENCE OF THE ADRIATIC SEA
All SIA products contain Flower of Salt, hand-harvested from Dalmatian sea salt basins dating back to Roman times. Invigorating and relaxing, Flower of Salt is rich in over 75 essential minerals including iodine, copper, zinc, iron, phosphorous and magnesium which has been shown to combat stress, aiding sleep and relaxation.
100% NATURAL WITH CLINICALLY PROVEN INGREDIENTS
All SIA products and ingredients are cruelty-free and the brand is proud to carry Cruelty Free International’s Leaping Bunny logo. All ingredients are also 100% sustainable. Olive pips used to produce the olive butters, oils and extracts used across the range are a by-product of the Mediterranean food industry; while the Dalmatian Flower of Salts comes from one of the most ornithologically diverse regions in the Adriatic. SIA products have a 100% natural fragrance and are free from parabens, mineral oils, silicones, sulphates and propylene glycol.
THE SCENT OF AN ADRIATIC BREEZE
SIA’s subtle, yet enlivening signature scent evokes Adriatic gardens and wild spaces. Natural essences chosen for their mind and body-boosting therapy include Bergamot and Sweet Mandarin to naturally uplift the energy, enhance mood and improve skin tone and texture; Petitgrain and Palmarosa to soothe aching muscles and relax the body; and Dalmatian Sage to facilitate the release of natural endorphins and heighten emotional and intellectual wellbeing.
NATURALLY ACTIVE SKINCARE FOR NATURALLY ACTIVE BODIES
Created for time-stressed people with a passion for wellbeing, the multi-tasking range takes practical sensuality to a whole new level of utter bliss. Inspired by the abundant plants, remedies and sea spas of the sun-drenched Adriatic, SIA’s naturally symbiotic formulas have a transformative effect on body and mind.
SIA is a celebration of vitality – a zest for living and healthy, glowing skin. Each of the 100% natural ingredients have been shown to have a transformative effect on the skin’s wellbeing. And because outer radiance reflects inner harmony, you can follow your fjaka every time you use them.
