LUX Fashion & Lifestyle Awards 2018

Page 42 LUX 2018 Fashion and Lifestyle Awards For over 13 years, VOYA has had an undeniable presence in the global luxury spa industry and has led the way for results-driven, organic skincare worldwide. In 2000, Mark and Kira Walton, a newly married couple at the time, created VOYA products and treatments to provide an authentic spa experiencing at home. They combined their knowledge of the therapeutic properties of seaweed with the expertise of natural cosmetic scientists and dermatologists from around the world. Today, VOYA’s seaweed is sustainably sourced, selected by eye, handpicked and harvested by their expert team, on the west coast of Ireland. It is used in a range of products which are supplied to the world’s top 5-star spas. VOYA now has more than 450 accounts worldwide and distributes to 39 countries across Europe, the US, the Middle East and the Far East. Among its illustrious clients are Jumeirah (Burj Al-Arab); Ritz Carlton; Mandarin Oriental; Woodhouse Day Spas America; Queen Mary II; Canyon Ranch; Ashford Castle Ireland; Galgorm Resort & Spa and Emirates Airlines. Based on therapies that date back hundreds of years, VOYA organic beauty is the world’s first seaweed-based certified organic brand, providing unique treatments to luxury spas, as well as supplying direct to consumers who wish to enjoy their rejuvenating properties in the comfort of their own home. Having recently recognised the company in this year’s Fashion & Lifestyle Awards, we felt it was about time we profiled it and showcased the innovative products that are driving force behind its incredible success.

For a product to be labelled organic 95% of all ingredients must be organic, and the team at VOYA go one step further, with even their packaging made from seaweed.
