OUR ETHOS

Japanese believe that natural beauty should be enhanced through conscientious human care; just like how the Zen gardens are beautified by carefully pruning the bushes and raking the lines in the sand. At IRÉN Skin, we too work to bring out the full potential of natural ingredients through scientific research and technology. Our formulas reflect the perfect harmony of science in balance with nature, powered by our patented encapsulation technology.

Scientifically Clean 

Transparent formulas, proven by science.

"Clean beauty", "approved by Yuka", "natural", are popular labels these days to reassure skincare lovers. However, at IRÉN Skin, we prioritize that YOU understand the ingredients in your products and not be misled by hearsay or unregulated labels. Our R&D team has worked hard to simplify the science for you! After years of testing, with scientific evidence collected and analyzed, we decided to ban over 2000 ingredients, that are toxic to the skin and the environment. In the end, we found our solution in our Japanese roots, combining nature, science, and technology to create innovative, effective, and healthy formulas. 

Among the ingredients you'll never find in our products are the 7 "Big No-No's" that we've identified as the most toxic, allergenic and comedogenic (a.k.a. - everything we avoid at ALL costs for your good). 

CRUELTY-FREE

Leaping Bunny Approved

We believes that beauty products should be cruelty free. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved. A global programme, Leaping Bunny requires cruelty free standards over and above legal requirements.

All of our brand cosmetic and personal care products are approved under the Cruelty Free International Leaping Bunny programme, the internationally recognisable gold standard for cruelty free products. We adhere to a fixed cut-off date policy and proactively monitor our suppliers to ensure that our products continue to adhere to the Leaping Bunny criteria. Our supplier monitoring system is also independently audited. 

CHARITY

One PURCHASE,
One TREE

OUR IMPACT

HERE’S OUR PROMISE TO YOU AND TO OUR PLANET: EVERY TIME YOU BUY FROM US, WE’LL PLANT A TREE.

With your help, we’d be playing our part for the long run. We’ve partnered with One Tree Planted, who are championing reforestation efforts in every way, one of which involves planting trees while also providing jobs to local and indigenous communities worldwide. As part of our work with them, we pledge to plant one tree for every purchase you make with us. Much like planting trees, we hope we can help you reinvigorate your skincare routine and plant a new life with our products. Let’s come together to make a stronger impact on our planet.

SUSTAINABILITY

Playing Our Part

01

REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLED

We’re committed to limiting our impact by reducing the use of single-use plastic, and replacing them with PCR (recycled plastic) and glass instead. Moving forward, we are actively looking towards creating refillable skincare packs and developing packaging that makes use of renewable or bio materials.

02

Defenders of the Forests

We’re gearing towards using FSC-certified paper for all of our exterior packaging. This means that we use paper harvested in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, supporting viable management of the world’s forest. You and I are joining the force to prevent more of our forestry from being harmed!

03

Sourcing Local

Yes, we’re indeed made in Japan. But our products also get shipped to our local suppliers in other parts of the world for final assembly and filing. To further reduce our carbon footprint, we make every effort to source locally for all our eco boxes and cartons.

INCLUSIVITY

Creating Opportunities

We care about skincare, animals, the environment and of course — the people.

At IRÉN Skin, we’re all about educating and empowering others with valuable information and opportunities. In support for the people in the community, we offer sponsored scholarships to local universities and colleges for women looking to pursue their passion in science.

C’mon, we’re a 100% women-led science team after all. We will continue to empower women within our means!

I've been using these serums for close to a week and I've seen visible changes to my skin! My pores are smaller now, and my skin is a lot smoother. The packaging is also ingenious!
