Stella Ciollo, founder of this truly unique skincare range, believes that good, effective skincare needn’t contain toxic ingredients and parabens procured at a great expense to the environment, let alone at the expense of women’s skin and health.
Skoon do not condone any formulations that might be carcinogenic or harmful to your health. They source locally and encourage local production of ingredients wherever possible. They also reject the concept of testing products on animals on the absolute strongest terms.
The SKOON. brand began because of an article Stella found in a newspaper years ago, which stated that a woman will host, on average, 515 ingredients on her body, at any given time – because of the way modern cosmetics are formulated. It occurred to me that there are very few "good" alternatives – and if she wanted to make a difference, she’d have to roll up her sleeves and make something happen. She just had to get this project off the ground.
Stella started her own professional laboratory and worked with a chemist full time to produce the best-in-class natural formulations, using highly potent, effective actives and ingredients. Stella researched natural ingredients, travelling far and wide to find superb quality actives and suppliers - whilst her chemist formulated ways to maximise the natural properties of each ingredient procured.
WHY I LOVE THEM
As someone who has struggled with acne and sensitive skin for most of my life I am incredibly weary when it comes to advocating a skin care range.
There are so many natural skin care ranges on the market and of course some of them are beautiful and effective, however my poor face doesn't have the luxury of being able to test products without consequences.
I have been down another natural skincare road with a local brand and it followed with a year of struggle after I finally thought my acne was under control.
The difference with Skoon is that their formulas are scientifically formulated with the finest ingredients. They make it their mission to stay up to date with the most luxurious and beneficial formulations in natural skin care. Natural actives that are supported by clinical studies mean that Skoon products are not only effective but also scientifically proven.
Skoon focuses on being honest and pure. Kind, clean, ethical procurement and production that is strictly against testing on animals. This undercurrent that runs through the soul of their business along with a heart for local had me at hello. Their products are pure, highly effective luxury.

ROSEHIP C+ CONCENTRATE
A MUST HAVE
