Let’s paint a mental picture. Imagine yourself on a quiet, private beach. Imagine the white sands and the cool gentle breeze. Imagine the touch of the waves gliding up to kiss your feet, and then slowly slipping away and removing all your stress as it leaves the shore. Imagine the sunlight, gentle on your skin, giving you that perfect tan, perfect because your pores are enjoying the soft, locked-in moisture. You’re on a Caribbean island, living out your dream holiday.
Exciting, isn’t it?
But at the end of such a perfect getaway, we always want to take a piece of that utopia home with us. Well, what if we told you this experience is within reach, from the comfort of your home? Island Organics, a natural skincare range inspired by the Caribbean islands will give you this dreamland experience and more.
Island Organics prides itself in having a holistic approach to skincare. Their formulas are inspired by fruits native to the Caribbean, with a deep-rooted belief that using natural and organic products is the key to unlocking an effective skincare regime.
We recently caught up with Leah, the brains behind Island Organics. Born in Britain, Leah is passionate about skincare and all things natural, as she was quick to reveal as she told us the inspirational story behind her brand.
“I strongly believe in the efficacy of natural and organic formulas as opposed to mainstream, synthetic skincare products. Plus I love the Caribbean! The culture, lifestyle and beauty of the Islands. My spirit animal is a flamingo on Renaissance Private Island in Aruba! After I visited St. Vincent and the Grenadines, I was captivated by the beauty and the natural lifestyle of the Caribbean. I’m an avid skincare enthusiast, with a love of all things natural, so I decided to merge my two passions to create Island Organics..”
A skinclusive brand, products from Island Organics were created with all skin tones and types in mind as their current product range has been a huge success with lots of positive reviews and testimonials! The product range boasts a selection of must-have moisturisers and a facial mist, a love note to your skin from mother nature!

- Golden Cocoa Butter: Formulated with a medley of oils and essential nutrients, this skin essential is loaded with skin-strengthening qualities with a gorgeous coconut scent. It contains cocoa butter from the Dominican Republic, famed for its high fatty acids content which helps to retain moisture in the skin. As you massage the butter into your palms the butter melts to a softer consistency.
