Dr Joanne Reilly has combined her passion for science and the natural world to create a brand of skincare that turned to plants as a natural resource, a natural apothecary. What we love about Kinvara skincare is that they source the ingredients for their products, primarily from plant extracts in different forms as well as minerals, clays and seaweeds. Including seaweeds from the West Coast of Ireland. They use a high % of plants extracts, effectively making Kinvara products ml for ml some of the most plant powered products on the market today.
