REN Clean Skincare was born in the UK in 2000 from a unique gap in the market. Inspired by a mum-to-be who was unsatisfied by the beauty industry of the time offering products filled with harsh ingredients, potential toxins and irritants. With that, REN Clean Skincare has been delivering clean, result-driven skincare for 20 years, through products that respect both skin and planet.
In formulation, all their products are designed with sensitive skin in mind. They approach common skin concerns, from blemishes to dark spots and fine lines with a naturally derived, clinically proven solution giving users, even those with reactive skin, visible and long-term results without irritation, and without compromising the skin’s protective barrier.
In packaging, REN Clean Skincare are pioneers of innovative sustainable solutions - notably with their work on plastics. In 2018 they pledged their Zero Waste by 2021* ambition, unveiling a new Clean to Skin. Clean to Planet. ethos which underpins every decision. They are constantly researching alternatives like PCR and Infinity Recycling, challenging the luxury beauty industry to change their perception of prestige packaging and waste.
*recycled, recyclable and reusable packaging solutions, by the end of 2021.
All Glow. No Irritation. is the mantra of the REN Clean Skincare skin-brightening Radiance collection. With hero exfoliating ingredients like Lactic and Glycolic Acid, plus skin-energising Magnesium and stable Vitamin C, they achieve balanced brightness without causing skin stress. Their latest launch, Dark Spot Sleeping Cream is clinically proven to reduce dark spots from 7 days, using only naturally derived non-sensitising ingredients.
Arguably their most iconic range, Evercalm™, is a comprehensive skincare collection that helps ease symptoms of skin sensitivity, while providing sustained relief for reactive skin. With Global Protection Day Cream, 97% agreed skin felt immediately calmer, while antioxidant-rich ingredients actively help fight free radicals - a known trigger of skin sensitivity.
Perfect Canvas bridges the gap between clean skincare and makeup, smoothing and perfecting users' complexions at the beginning and end of their routine. Clean Jelly Oil Cleanser is proven to remove waterproof makeup, SPF and pollution and can be used with a reusable wash or muslin cloth - negating the need for single-use makeup wipes. Clean Primer uses naturally derived extracts to lift, smooth, mattify and visibly refine pores without silicone, so no pilling - just all-day perfect makeup and clinically proven smoother skin instantly and in the long term.
