Our Story Starts In Nature

Our Story Starts In Nature

Motivated by a case of plant-induced contact dermatitis, herbal scientist
Tracey Ryan decided to investigate the impact herbal preparations have on the skin's hydration levels. She eventually developed a unique blend of herbal infusions known as BIAComplex. Underpinning the entire Ireland Collection, BIAComplex leverages the hydrating properties of individual botanicals while delivering soothing, hydrating, and restoring benefits.

Ingredients Ingredients

BIAComplex

Made from a blend of macerated oil infusions, our BIAComplex uses complimentary plant extracts to support skin health and hydration.

Calendula officinalis (Calendula): Brings moisturizing and soothing properties to dry or irritated skin; helps protect the skin.
Helichrysum italicum (Immortelle): Creates a protective film to retain moisture and keep the skin hydrated.
Symphytum officinale (Comfrey): Contains keratolytic properties that help shed the drier outer layers of the epidermis.
Viola tricolor (Heartsease): Uses polysaccharides to boost the skin's capacity to retain water by improving osmotic function.
Althea officinalis (Mallow): Forms a soothing, protective gel that moisturizes dry, rough skin.

A Self-Preserving System

We undertook significant research to develop a plant-based, self-preserving system. Unlike synthetic preservatives traditionally used in the industry, the BIA collection relies on organic plant acids boosted by glycerine esters. In this way, we ensure our formulations maintain a safe, stable, and high-performing shelf life.

Potent Irish Botanicals

Mild temperatures and heavy rainfall make Ireland home to a rich and abundant range of indigenous herbs. The region's natural environment coupled with a small population and low level of pollution gives way to a lush greenness that spans mountains, woods, and bogs.

With the highest proportion of natural vegetation of any European country, it's not surprising that Ireland has sustained a long history of herbal medicine. BIA pays tribute to this ancient herbal knowledge by partnering with local growers and infusing native plant species into our formulas.
Packaging Packaging

Green PE Airless Design

In response to the beauty industry's prevalent use of petrochemical-based plastics, we have committed to housing our formulas in green polyethylene (PE) airless containers. The novel packaging design both minimizes our carbon footprint and guarantees a safe shelf life for all BIA products.
Ireland's Herbal Treasures

Ireland's Herbal Treasures

The Ireland collection was created after years of research with a team of experts versed in herbal science, cosmetic chemistry, dermatology, horticulture, and biotechnology. Our learnings revealed the remarkably robust and skin-enhancing properties derived from native Irish plants, including seaweed, evergreen herbs, and wildflowers. We've worked with the individuals who understand these unique plants the most—local organic growers and manufacturing facilities—to create a line that offers superior hydration, moisture retention, and rejuvenating skincare benefits.
