Bringing our brand to life

Everything we buy or use has an impact, but we are all trying to make the best choices we can. Here are some of the things we are doing, but we won’t stop there:

We care for:

  • Our Fleece

    – Sheep milk benefits the skin, our protective barrier. We are unlocking the beauty within sheep milk

    – We want to marry science and nature to create simple skincare

    – Staying true to the quality of our hero ingredient (sheep milk), we only use natural ingredients in our formulations

  • Our Footprint

    – We take pride in what we do – that means ensuring the sheep and our products don’t create new problems for the planet.

    – We believe that less is more. We want to keep it as simple as possible, life is complicated enough

  • Our Flock

    – We want to bring you (our flock!) a simple and sustainable choice

    – We are heralding the sheep, an animal steeped in heritage 

    – We want to connect people back to the land and support Irish farming

Bánór name and logo

Our Name – Bánór

Pronounced “Bawn – oar”

We chose the name to reflect how special we know sheep milk is. “Bán” is the Irish word for white (and the colour of milk), and “Ór” is the word for gold. We truly believe sheep milk is white gold! We decided to use the Irish language so it can always shepherd us back to our roots.

We want to make simple food for the skin using our own white gold.

Thank you for your support.
