Characterized as ‘Natural Science’, Irene Forte Skincare achieves outstanding results with natural ingredients in formulations shaped by 35 years of skincare research and development. With her Scientific Director, Dr. Francesca Ferri -a pioneer in the medical use of plant extracts to treat skin conditions- Irene has introduced novel ingredients in products which have shown outstanding activity in independent clinical trials.
In skincare, the very best products show strength in gentleness. To achieve exceptional gentleness Irene Forte strictly limits “essential oils” which can easily irritate the skin, and all her fragrances are screened for allergens. Then, beyond normal skin testing, the products are also tested on volunteers with sensitive skin so that they can be clinically certified as “Suitable for sensitive skin”.
For all Irene Forte products, the core ingredients come from her organic farm in Sicily, and alongside these, she has integrated zero-waste upcycled ingredients, made from nutrient-rich plant-based leftovers. Her insistence on plant-based sources means all of the ingredients are vegan.
Irene Forte’s approach is distinguished by her high ethical standards that make sustainability a primary business focus. In recognition of these standards, Irene Forte Skincare has been awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for sustainable excellence.
