Our Story

I started to research and experiment with different botanicals oils and essential oils which had a  positive impact throughout my pregnancy, birthing experience and post natal journey. I saw firsthand the amazing benefits of using organic ingredients and aromatherapy which led me to study an Organic Skincare Science Course from an international award winning Organic Skincare Science School based in  London to deepen my knowledge in Cosmetic Science.  – Jan Fay

Meet Jan

My name is Jan Fay, I am the Founder and Master Formulator of Nami Naturale. I am an Architect, mother of two, nature lover, beauty enthusiast, certified organic skincare formulator and a beauty entrepreneur.

Before Nami Naturale, I worked as an Architect that led to Project Management career in Christchurch, New Zealand where I met my husband and co-founder Andrew Fay. In 2017, we moved to Ireland where my husband is native to settle with our growing family.

Nami Naturale essentially was born out of love and together, we built Nami Naturale.

At the same time, our exclusive nourishing formulations deliver powerful results to help you achieve radiant glowing complexion while it helps put your body and mind in a peaceful realm.

WHY I CREATED AN EFFORTLESS BEAUTY RITUAL 

I am a mother of two and I understand how overloaded life can be and finding time for self-care may become a challenge that’s why I developed our capsule skincare collection to help you achieve measurable results without over-complicated routines.

IT’S NOT JUST A SKINCARE

By appreciating skincare as a form of self-care, I encourage you to make time for a ritual of self-love. No matter how busy life can be and wherever life takes you – I encourage you take that pause to nurture and take care of yourself while using our transformative advance botanical beauty rituals.

Our Story

Originally from the Philippines, I worked as an Architect for seven years that lead to a career in Project Management in Christchurch, New Zealand where I met my husband and co-founder, Andrew.

My husband and I moved to Ireland where he is native to set up our growing family. The pressure of moving to a new country and being away from my family while taking care of a new born baby, giving up my career and the feeling of isolation took a toll on my mental health. It was also during the birth of Saoirse that I suffered from allergic dermatitis. My hands became dry, itchy, and ended up being raw. My skin was resistant to any over the counter treatment. This is when I started to embarked deeply in studying plant medicines and found healing in creating my own natural skincare formulations.

From the moment I immersed myself in the magical world of plant medicine, I was able to refocus the negative energy into something positive. And when I found myself recovering my inner strength, I discovered my new purpose. I saw skincare as a powerful tool for self-care.

As a beauty and skincare enthusiast, it was important for me to create natural products that will deliver the same if not better results from using conventional skincare products.

As a mother of two, it was crucial for me to create formulations that I know will be safe to use around my family and have minimal effect on the environment. We wanted to show our children that we can live sustainably even by using skincare products. My own creation of aromatherapeutic products helped bring back my healthy skin with a clean conscious mind and transformed my mundane routine into a precious self-care ritual that I value and look forward to at the end of the day.

The Journey

As I recovered my inner strength and regained confidence with my skin, I started to expand my circle. I meet new friends and shared with them my love for natural skincare. Words started to spread and my formulation evolved and took a new focus.

I was inundated by request after request to create skincare to help eased the discomfort of more extreme issues – skincare following a kidney dialysis, cancer treatments, severe acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis, a combination of multiple skin issues and all sorts of skin inflammation of all types and experienced by all ages.

These challenges have led me to pursue a course in Organic Cosmetic Science and train with an award-winning and accredited London based School of Organic Cosmetic Science. I believed that in order for me to help my clients, I needed a formal education to understand cosmetic science deeper in order to create products that will deliver measurable results.

The Beginning

Fast forward today, Nami Naturale is an award winning Irish Skincare Brand advocating for mindful skincare rituals.  

We offer gentle yet effective natural products that are better for our skin, wellbeing, and environment compared to conventional skincare. 

Our skin-enhancing and stress relieving exclusive natural formulations are a result of academic research and countless experiments in finding the best combination of scientifically proven botanical extracts and active plant ingredients nature has to offer. 

We created Nami Naturale for people looking to make a switch to high performance natural skincare products. Our skincare rituals are here as a powerful tool to help you take charge of your health, nurture your wellbeing and empower yourself so that you can improve your connection with your love ones and people around you. 

What is Nami?

It’s deeply personal for me. Nami means beautiful in my mother’s native dialect. My mum introduced me to the value of self-care, plant medicine and caring for the environment at a young age and naming our brand Nami is my ode of love and way of honouring her.

My childhood inspiration

My childhood and Asian culture are my earliest memories of apothecary. I remember my Mum, a registered midwife, tagging me along when she visits her patients. I listened to her talked about the therapeutic benefits of herbal medicines when infused in teas, steam baths and post-natal massage oils.

In Southeast Asia, it is a traditional practice for a pregnant woman to require post-pregnancy confinement after giving birth to regain strength and health. Asian postnatal confinement period includes a holistic approach and herbal medicines.

I remember my mum soaking “Gugo” – a bark of a tree with warm water and infused it with lime to use as a shampoo on my hair. And whenever I had a cough, my mum would make a natural cough syrup from leaves of bitter gourd freshly harvested from her vegetable garden. She will grind it then infused it with lime and honey.

Growing up, I remember her washing plastic bags and hanging it dry on the clothes line so she can reuse them. She was also thrifty in saving empty tubs of ice cream which she uses to store random bits and pieces of things. Growing up, I help her gather local spinach, tomatoes, and chili from our vegetable garden.

Not having known at that time, at a very young age, I was introduced to the world of the ancient tradition of Filipino healing practices and sustainability.
