from a dream to reality...
Luna Organic Beauty is the making of over Twenty five years of work and vision. Sam started out in the beauty industry full of dreams to own her own beauty salon or spa.
Whilst on work experience at Cardiff's first 5 star hotel & spa Sam was offered her first beauty therapist position, from there Sam travelled to Sydney Australia working in a luxurious city hotel spa. Settling back in Cardiff a few years later, Sam worked in a beauty salon before joining Jego salons here Sam set-up her first beauty business.
Along with working full time and running a busy beauty salon, Sam's passion for spa and holistic therapies continued.
Sam trained as a reflexologist and reiki master, this was the beginning of Sam's spiritual journey in search of a balanced lifestyle to heal the pains of the past and well being battles of the present, the light within were ignited.
As a child Sam suffered with severe asthma, eczema, numerous allergies and migraines, at age 10 Sam lost her dad to motor neurone disease she stored the pain for many years until finding reiki healing.
As a teenager Sam took an interest in diet, health and beauty deciding to venture into Beauty Therapy.
When Sam joined the beauty & spa industry as a qualified therapist, although very much enjoying the spa training and luxurious spa treatments, many of the products would cause skin sensitivity.
Sam found it frustrating but gained much product knowledge with a greater understanding of the skin including her own, this would become invaluable to Sam later in her skincare journey when formulating her own products.
A new found love of the healing world brought the best out in Sam looking within herself gave balance to her life which was needed after burning the candle at both ends for many years. Between 2002 - 2013 Sam suffered with pneumonia, vertigo, advanced pre-cancerous cells and recurrent miscarriages, the bouts of eczema and allergic reactions came and went.
Being healed spiritually and mentally wasn't enough Sam realised she needed to change her approach to the way she lived day to day by taking care of her physical body. A private allergy test gave Sam knowledge of all the foods she were allergic to this cleared the bouts of eczema, lethargy and reactions.
Sam made the necessary organic dietary and wellness changes to her lifestyle, slowed a fast pace of life and started to look within.
This brought an awareness of the damaging effects our environment can have.
Naturally Sam became drawn to skincare products of an organic nature, avoiding artificial perfumes and harmful ingredients, believing all we need is within mother earth.
This proved difficult in the Treatment room as there were no organic vegan professional skincare ranges that could provide effective salon results, Sam began to research.
On a trekking trip to Morocco Sam found Argan oil, any spare travel time was spent visiting hammams, sampling natural products and making contacts.
This were the birth of Luna Organic Skincare, Sam fell in love with the effects of argan oil, wanting to source the best argan oil available, visiting suppliers in Morocco and building relationships led to finding an organic eco-certified argan oil which became Luna Organic Skincare's first product.
Sam began to use Luna organic argan oil daily on herself, family and friends finding the results outstanding. Sam had found the key ingredient for her Luna Organic Vegan Professional Skincare range.
Within 12 months of living a purer lifestyle, Sam became pregnant sucessfully giving birth to a bouncing baby boy. Whilst on maternity Sam had time to reflect on her career and future, she had a calling to move into her own premises, where her experience as a spa therapist, running her own business and the lifestyle practice of natural well being, along with a new organic skincare brand could be as one, from a dream to reality Luna Organic Beauty was Born.
