Chris and Mary are committed to creating skincare products which promote wellness and bring balance to the mind and body. ’We are very passionate about our product which has an holistic approach that leaves the whole body revitalised and enriched… quality and service are very important to us’.
Mary grew up with dry, sensitive skin which led to a personal interest in experimenting with various natural botanical and essential oils for their therapeutic benefits as effective ingredients for natural skincare. Chris learned from his mother how to sustainably harvest seaweed. His mum made roasted seaweed snacks for the family. Chris became aware of the amazing healing powers of seaweed when he used a seaweed poultice to dress a wound from a motorbike accident on his father’s leg.
With their own knowledge and passion, huge amounts of research, help from experts, and insights from Thalassotherapy (use of seawater & seaweed) and Aromatherapy (use of essential oils), they developed Green Angel. They have built a dedicated team around them and the range has won many industry awards and 100’s of fantastic media reviews.

Key Ingredients: organic Fucus serratus (serrated wrack).
Directions for use: Remove the seaweed from the external plastic packaging. You can leave the seaweed in the net bag or remove it, depending on whether you want to contain the seaweed or not. Place the seaweed in a basin and pour hot water on it. Leave to steep for 10 minutes to release the natural gels. If you prefer, you can just add the water without the seaweed, as the gels will have been released through the steeping process. Add the seaweed and the water into the bath and run your bath as normal. If you do keep the seaweed in the bath, the fronds can be rubbed over the skin for an extra-gentle exfoliating effect. Immerse yourself in the natural seaweed gels. To optimise the seaweed effect, relax in the bath for 10-15 minutes.

Vendor Profile: Doctor Maher’s is an outstanding range of skin care products formulated by Dr. Neil Maher in Ballybunion. It is a 100% pure and gentle range of therapeutic body care products that contains only the highest quality safe, natural botanical and seaweed extracts in effective amounts. His aim is to provide potent allergen-free products that nourish all skin types.
From the age of 13, Neil grew up on his ancestor’s coastal farm in Ballybunion, North Kerry. He was in awe of the beauty of the Ballybunion coastline, the people and their way of life. He took part in the harvesting of seaweed, amazed by its versatility, with uses ranging from fertilising the land to alleviating skin problems and aching joints. What interested the young Neil most was food and the nutritional value associated with seaweed and other bounties from the sea. He set up his first business after school and during the weekends selling periwinkles and dried dulse and to villages and towns in North Kerry.
Intrigued by the natural world, Neil always quested for answers about the fundamental workings of nature. He received a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and then worked in France for some years conducting research for a national state body. He never forgot his roots, his love for North Kerry and the passion of his childhood interests. In 2005 he returned from France to Ballybunion where he has been researching a unique system of harvesting marine plants to maximise their bioactive compounds. He has also developed a series of innovative processes which intensify the potency of the natural ingredients in his formulations.
The Doctor Maher’s product range is more than just cosmetic!!! 100% natural really does mean 100% natural. All ingredients are nourishing and beneficial with nothing added that may react or negatively impact on one’s skin or general health. Trials on the benefits have been rigorous and honest. His work has been long and meticulous and his criteria and ethics are uncompromising.
