Skyn Iceland: Ice-Cold Innovation

Skyn Iceland: Ice-Cold Innovation

Skyn Iceland is a skincare brand that has become synonymous with quality, innovation, and results. Founded in 2005 by Sarah Kugelman, Skyn Iceland is a leader in the beauty industry, boasting a wide range of skin care products formulated with 98.68 percent natural ingredients, all designed to nourish and protect your skin. But how did this incredible brand come to be? Let’s take a look at how Skyn Iceland changed the skincare game.

Inspired by Volcanic Nature

Skyn Iceland was founded by Sarah Kugelman, a New York City-based beauty industry veteran. Inspired by her travels to Iceland – where the terrain is abundant in natural resources and people have some of the world's most pristine skin – Sarah spent over a year in research, and finally developed a range of natural skincare solutions that incorporate ingredients found in Icelandic nature. These include glacial waters, antioxidants from Arctic berries, and mineral-rich volcanic clay. Skyn Iceland focuses on providing clean beauty solutions, such as vegan formulas free from sulfates, parabens and other synthetic chemicals.

From Stressed to Soothed Skin

The core brand values that Skyn Iceland embodies are: wellness, healthy living, and clean environments. Kugelman began her natural skincare journey after her own health scare, the result of a weakened immune system. She began researching the effects of stress and chemicals on the skin, and how to incorporate natural remedies into products that soothe skin that has been constantly bombarded by pollution and environmental triggers. Skyn Iceland creates each new product very mindfully with specific skin concerns in mind, making it a favorite among editors, influencers, celebrities, and beauty insiders alike.
