About Island Beauty
Welcome to our store for all your anti ageing needs with new and exciting products being added regularly. Sourced mainly from the best US laboratories as the emphasis is on quality with the highest quantity of key ingredients for a price that suits your pocket.
Island Beauty was founded in 2005 when the mirror was telling the story of one’s past with too much sun and too little protection and the only cream finding its way to one’s face (mine! :) at night was Vit E cream from the Body Shop. The sagging, tired reflection in the mirror and years of not taking care of wrinkle forming skin, was enough incentive to do some research……
THE BEST CREAMS AND SERUMS
The research began for the best anti-ageing ingredients that the big cosmetic companies were using in their serums and creams. I repeatedly came across Hyaluronic Acid, Matrixyl 3000™, Matrixyl™, Eyeliss™, Argireline, L-Ascorbic Acid, Glycolic AHA Acid, Caffeine and Salicylic Acid
as being the most prominent elements in their expensive face treatments. I soon realised the most important factor about these key ingredients was that they were the best skin repair, hydrators and protective agents in the market place today. BUT the customer is actually paying a lot of money for the packaging and not the active ingredient. Why should your desired look be defined by the depths of your pockets? Why spend £100 on a jar when you can buy the same active ingredient for under £40?
Further research led to reputable medical supply companies who source the finest quality cosmetic ingredients with a greater percentage of working components and at a fraction of the cost of larger cosmetic companies. To share this discovery with you, Island Beauty was born so that all thirty, forty and fifty+ can afford leading edge anti-ageing ingredients for their skin. Each product has a list of Active Ingredients to give you the opportunity to compare products yourself.
No items in our store are tested on animals.
To provide this quality product for small money we use simple containers/packaging. This keeps costs to a minimum passing the savings on to our customers.
