From Sicily’s sun-drenched fields, straight to your skin; that’s the principle upon which Irene Forte Skincare has been founded, sourcing its performance naturals from its very own organic farm in Verdura, where they are grown using time-honoured, sustainable practices and heritage crops. The Mediterranean climate helps to avoid intensive farming and ensures the quality of each botanical that goes into the carefully researched formulations.
Irene Forte, the founder, has a rich history and deep connection with Sicily. It was here, amongst the people, culture, food and breath-taking beauty she loves, that she first experienced true wellbeing and thus her passion to share it was born.
Working closely with renowned chemist Dr Francesca Ferri of EffegiLab and her team of biologists and pharmacologists in Trento, Italy, Irene developed a range of nutrient-rich skincare based upon the principles of the Mediterranean diet; regarded by many as the healthiest in the world.
It’s a common misconception that all naturals are kind – in fact, some are actually foreign to the skin and can cause reactivity and irritation. Irene Forte Skincare was created on the base principles of the 75 exceptionally skin-kind ingredients.
Handcrafted in small batches, the range is created in harmony with the environment and communities in which it’s cultivated, and is fully sustainable in its lifecycle.
