It may have started as a childhood fascination with grandma's fruit and herb garden (complete with a large rock in the centre) in Trelawny, but today, Irie Rock Yaad Spa is a definite reality. The all-natural, all-Jamaican skincare line features a range of mood-boosting scents, namely: Papaya Path, Mango Walk, Coconut Sensation, Vanilla Bliss, Citrus Fields, Coffee Delight, Pineapple Express, Watermelon Fresh, Jamaican Cocoa Butter and the charity line Passion (I Dare U) -- the proceeds from which are donated to a different charity each year.
Managing director Racquell Brown, whom we caught up with at the Food Awards recently, shared that the products are carried in Superclubs resorts islandwide, as well as Riu hotels, Half Moon, Rose Hall Country Club, Jamaica Grande and the Ritz-Carlton. They are also available at Monarch, Fontana, and Manor Park pharmacies, and the Bob Marley museum in the Corporate Area.
