This exfoliator's name sounds like it's written, and its name says it all. GLÓey. Yep. In Icelandic, it means 'eternal glow'. 

This exfoliator is a natural at multi-tasking.  Its gentle buffing action does several things at once: by thoroughly removing sluggish surface cells, it promotes skin renewal, reduces the signs of aging, and eases the absorption of applied nutrients and moisture.  It even gives you a bit of a head-start with that last bit, using a lavish combination of coconut, sweet almond, and apricot kernel oils to moisturize your skin and prep it to absorb whatever you put on next. People with puffy eyes, acne or sensitive skin will be happy to know that this scrub also contains our signature blend of wild Icelandic herbs which calm redness, eliminate bacteria, and tell inflammation to sit the heck down.

Meanwhile, crushed olive kernels, which contain a profile of beneficial fats, and peppermint oil, an anti-depressant in aromatherapy, work hard to deep-clean and wake up your skin. The result? A polished and luminous complexion and tingly, calm, stimulated senses.  Skin that is ready to get up and GLOW!

 

Apply GLÓey purifying exfoliator to dry skin and use fingertips to gently massage over face. Work the exfoliator in circular movements from the centre of face outwards. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat skin dry.

 

For best results, prime skin by removing makeup and everything else that's accumulated during the day with fersk white cleansing foam. Apply to dry skin, as directed above, however let the peppermint work for 1 minute before rinsing (the peppermint has both stimulating and antiseptic qualities).

 

Follow with refreshing splashes of nærð soothing tonic before massaging in eyGLÓ pure moisture to finish. Exfoliate twice a week. Suitable for all skin types.

What is Sóley?

 

Sóley Organics was founded in 2007, but its history goes back further than that.  A bit more than a century, actually. Grab a seat and some coffee and cake. It's a good story.

 

The woman behind Sóley Organics is the Icelandic actress Sóley Elíasdóttir.  Sóley is an iconic figure in Icelandic film and theatre who has left the stage to focus on her family's tradition of harnessing the healing properties of Iceland's native herbs.

 

Sóley's great-great-grandmother, Thorunn, was a particular inspiration to her in this. Thorunn, or Grasa-Thorunn (herb-Thorunn) as she was better known, was a famous healer and midwife.  There are many stories about the lives she saved using her knowledge of herbs.  There is even a story which claims that she was the first woman in Iceland to wear trousers!  

 

Thorunn passed her wisdom on to her son, Erlingur, who used it to save all twelve of his children from the Spanish Flu.

 

Sóley's first product, GRÆÐIR, an all-purpose healing balm, was based on one of Erlingur's recipes.  In Icelandic, græðir (grai-deer) means ‘healer’.

 

Sóley wants to make sure the spirit of Thorunn and Erlingur's herbal wisdom stays alive and flourishes.  Following in her ancestors' footsteps, she does her best to make her products powerful but gentle.  That is to say, ingredients that are effective on all kinds of skin problems, but so harmless and natural that you could eat them. 

 

While we can't guarantee they'll actually taste good, we are very, very proud of our ingredients and production.  Our ingredients and production are certified organic.

 

The active ingredients are wild-harvested from Iceland's highlands, which are among the cleanest, least-touched places on Earth. Sóley gathers them herself, with help from family and friends.

 

Our products are then made in an adorable little village of 300 people that stands between the shores of a northern fjord and the foot of a mountain named Kaldbakur. We get water for our products from a spring on Kaldbakur that is so pure you can drink straight from it.
