Female-founded Irene Forte Skincare believes in uniting nature and science. Alongside Scientific Director Dr. Francesca Ferri and her team of cosmetic scientists at EffegiLab, the luxury brand harnesses a combined 35 years of research and development experience. It distils the sun-soaked richness of Sicilian plant extracts into sophisticated formulas that are tested, trialled and certified for use on even the most sensitive skin.
The plant-based formulations are all certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free, using natural ingredients grown at the brand’s organic farm in Sicily. Zero-waste and upcycled ingredients, made from nutrient-rich plant leftovers, also play a part. The company pioneers such high ethical standards that it has B Corp status.

Genius in a Bottle – Irene Forte Skincare
Irene Forte Skincare ticks all the boxes. Not only does the production meet the highest standards, the packaging is easily recyclable and what’s inside the bottle is spa-quality (having been originally created for top hotel spas). Expect luxurious oils like olive, avocado and pumpkin seed – as well as wonder-ingredient rose oil – the majority of which ripen in the Sicilian sun before being harvested. The brand’s best-loved scents and ingredients include pistachio, hibiscus, hydrating prickly pear and lush pomegranate.
Explore the lightweight-yet-milky hydrating toner, utilising moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid, amino acids and – somewhat surprisingly – white wine. The almond cleansing milk gently dissolves all impurities, leaving skin fresh but delightfully hydrated, thanks to soothing aloe vera and sweet-almond oil. A scientifically perfected hyaluronic serum plumps and repairs skin and the brand’s much-talked-about eye cream utilises olive-seed oil, aloe vera and a B-vitamin complex to get to work on fine lines and dark circles.
All The Little Extras
This brand knows that a truly effective skincare routine doesn’t stop at the basics. Irene Forte also produces a luxurious lip balm, hibiscus night cream and a deeply hydrating hand cream, as well as overnight facial treatments. Its sextuple award-winning face mask calls on pistachio, pumpkin seed and avocado oil, among others, to work night-time wonders on your complexion. It’s clinically proven to hydrate the skin over 12 hours.
