Myskin.ie was founded in 2013 by certified aromatherapist Denise O’Connell. From her outreach work with The South Eastern Cancer Foundation, Denise was inspired to create natural skincare products to help soothe and support clients during their cancer journey. Her range of comforting, caring & nurturing products became an instant success, and are a firm favourite by hard working athletes, women and men who care about maintaining the quality of their skin, rough skinned gardeners, and those who want simply want to give a special treat a loved one!
Denise began her ITEC training in aromatherapy, massage therapy and reflexology in 1997 and has extensive experience of helping clients through the medium of comfort-orientated touch. Denise worked as an outreach therapist with the Solas Centre (Waterford) for a number of years, supporting people at all stages of their cancer journey. This experience led to the setting up of the Cois Nore Cancer Support Centre, Kilkenny, of which Denise is a founding member. Drawing on her twenty years of clinical experience, she takes a special interest in supporting people with pain and mobility problems, dealing with issues related to pregnancy, and helping those with special needs. Over the years, Denise has up-skilled her bodywork and aromatherapy education by learning advanced techniques from leading educators such as Hanne Marquardt, Gayle McDonald, Rhiannon Harris, Andrea Butje, Jade Shutes and Madeleine Kerkhof-Knapp Hayes.
In her “spare” time (!), busy Mum Denise sings with the Cairdeas Parkinsons Choir, volunteers with her children’s scout troop and Camogie club.
All products in our myskin.ie range are based on Denise’s many years of working as a practitioner in massage, aromatherapy and reflexology. All products have been fully tested and fine-tuned, to help with many types of skin issues. Raw ingredients are ethically sourced and organic wherever possible. All products in the myskin.ie range are safety assessed in line with the EU Cosmetic Directive of 2013.
