Hibernicis’ Skin and Body-Care Are Powered by the Irish Coast of Connemara

Hibernicis is an up-and-coming unisex skin and body-care brand dedicated to soothing and replenishing nutrients to both the body and mind. Founded by industry-veteran Catherine Logue in her homeland, Ireland, the brand also acts as an homage to the region’s cultural and historical heritage.

Inspired by Connemara, situated on the west coast of Ireland, the place is brimmed with an abundance of natural resources, which the brand obtains its ingredients from. Speaking on the conceptualization of the brand, Logue explains, “Hibernicis is an ode to Ireland, but developed to cater to all skin tones, types, and genders around the globe”.

The founder elaborates that “For me Ireland is an incredibly beautiful land with a fascinating and complex history and so I started the journey of developing a range which reflects how I feel about Ireland”. Hibernicis also lends its name from Latin, which translates to ‘from Ireland’, while its product offerings are all named in Gaelic.

Hibernicis currently offers five essential yet all-inclusive products, comprising of the Glan Bath + Shower Gel, Úr Exfoliating Gel, Athlíon Body Lotion, Síoda Body Serum, and Cara Hand Cream. Prices range from $39 – $95 USD, each featuring a skin-friendly and safe-to-use formulation infused with 95% naturally derived ingredients. Its star ingredient is seaweed extracts, a powerful skin-detoxifying antioxidant, which is also packed with vitamins K, B, A, and E for soothing, hydrating, and repairing effects.

A product that has been spotlighted by Logue is the Síoda Body Serum. The founder noted that the serum’s lightweight yet refreshing texture is inspired by her second home, Hong Kong, and its subtropical climate. As heavy moisturizers are not suitable for the city’s hot and humid air, Hibernicis’ quick-absorbent alternative is designed to hydrate skin on a cellular level without leaving a sticky-after-feel, complete with a therapeutic scent of jasmine and neroli.

Hibernicis Úr Exfoliating Gel

Úr means new in Irish, so in the spirit of renewal – introducing Úr Exfoliating Gel.

We recommend massaging Úr Exfoliating Gel uniquely designed exfoliator into damp skin before showering or bathing. This helps you enjoy the energising benefits of the experience before proceeding with your cleansing routine. The addition of peppermint oil and spearmint helps to stimulate circulation, beat fatigue, and invigorate your skin.

Since Hibernicis’ exfoliating gel is made with natural exfoliating ingredients, by using Úr you’re not only helping your skin – you’re also helping to protect our oceans and seas, and all of their natural resources, from dangerous microplastics.

Hibernicis Úr Exfoliating Gel contains a blend of seven types of seaweed, and is an effective, uplifting way to achieve smooth and refined skin.

Hibernicis Glan Bath and Shower Gel

Introducing Glan Bath and Shower Gel. Glan aptly means ‘clean’ in Irish.

Glan is our lightly scented, low foaming Bath and Shower Gel, designed to gently cleanse the skin without stripping it of its naturally occurring oils. With a blend of seven seaweed extracts containing anti-oxidant and moisturising properties, it helps detoxify, clear and tone the skin.

Hibernicis Glan Bath and Shower Gel is a refreshing, effective yet gentle cleansing gel.

Hibernicis Síoda Body Serum

Introducing Síoda Body Serum, a silky concoction that soothes and defends against moisture loss.

Síoda, pronounced SHE-o-da, means silk in Irish. Known for its soft, smooth texture, its elasticity and pleasing sheen, silk has always been an aspirational fabric. We wanted to create a product that would give your skin that luxurious feel, and Síoda Body Serum aims to do just that. It contains sodium hyaluronate, which penetrates deeply into the skin and acts as a water binding agent, protecting you from moisture loss. Its blend of five types of seaweed acts as an antioxidant, helping to detoxify, clear and tone the skin.

Hibernicis Síoda Body Serum will give you a lush yet light moisturising experience, supported by fragrant essential oils of jasmine and neroli.

Hibernicis Athlíon Body Lotion

In Irish, Athlíon means to replenish.

Pronounced ATH-le-ON, Hibernicis Athlíon Body Lotion is quickly absorbed, for a long lasting and oil-free finish. Containing our signature blend of seven types of seaweed, as well as sodium hyaluronate, Athlíon balances the skin while keeping the moisture locked in.

Its formula is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties, and is supported by essential oils of geranium, ylang ylang and sandalwood.

Hibernicis Cara Hand Cream

Introducing Cara Hand Cream – in Irish, ‘Cara’ is a friend, someone to care for and cherish.

Cara is both nourishing and easy to apply, with a smooth, oil-free finish. A blend of 7 seaweed extracts, rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties, help heal, protect and maintain water balance in the skin. Supported with an abundance of nourishing, natural oil extracts, vitamin E and essential oils, Cara will become your best friend… carry her everywhere.

Ennismore is partnering with the upscale head-to-toe skincare brand to introduce a new collection that provides a more environmentally sound solution to bathroom amenities and is collaborating with Clean the World on a robust recycling strategy for large bottles replacing single-use.

Ennismore, developer of unique hospitality properties and experiences around the world, announced today a global partnership with Malin+Goetz across its brands Delano, Hyde, Mondrian, Morgans Originals and SLS. The collaboration is the first time that the New York based skincare and fragrance company has partnered with a hospitality collective on a unique packaging and fragrance assortment. Thanks to La Bottega, leader in the curation of luxury bath and body products for hospitality, this partnership was able to come to fruition with a collection that will also bring a fresh new environmentally sustainable perspective and offering to guests.

Andrew Goetz, the brand’s founder says, “We founded Malin+Goetz on the principles of ‘less is best.’ Less packaging, no unnecessary ingredients, and less steps all equal better health. Best for your skincare, and best for the environment. We are proud to partner with Ennismore in bringing our curated amenity collection to their amazing properties. A great format innovation with wonderful products that’s great for everyone… and the planet”.

The new collection ‘Malin+Goetz for Ciel Spa’ was inspired by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz’s widely acclaimed bergamot fragrance, across their sought-after body wash, vitamin B5 and gentle hydrating formulas – a combination completely unique to Delano, Hyde, Mondrian, Morgans Originals and SLS.

The fragrance and product line consisting of gentle hydrating shampoo and conditioner and bergamot body wash, bar soap and moisturizer was created uniquely for their brands to bring the Ciel Spa experience to their guests every day during their stay.  

The 400ml large format dispensers will be available in all guest bathrooms, replacing single use 50ml bath amenities, which often required replenishment multiple times throughout each guest’s stay. For a safer and more hygienic travel experience, bottles will not be refillable to ensure the quality and efficacy of the product.

Additionally, the collection was developed in collaboration with Clean the World to ensure all products are being recycled correctly, including soap which is recycled into new bars for those in need. The new program launches in February 2022, and the full collection will be available in guest bathrooms by March 2022. An on-property and online retail program is in development and set to launch by the end of the year.

Dermatologist Dr. Suzanne Friedler with Advanced Dermatology PC with tips on treatment options for younger hands

Anti-aging efforts usually focus on our faces, but it’s actually the hands – our most-used body part – that can age us most. Fortunately, treatment options for younger hands are only expanding, according to Suzanne Friedler, MD, of Advanced Dermatology P.C.

How do our hands give away our age? First, they begin to look bony and fragile as “plumpness” under the skin diminishes, Dr. Friedler explains. As time passes, veins in our hands also become more prominent and the skin starts to thin, looking crepe-y.

“Sun exposure only magnifies these effects, speckling our hands with brown spots,” she says. “Fine lines and wrinkles add up as well. But there are ways to rejuvenate our hands so they look more youthful – and more in line with a relatively young-looking face that’s received more age-averting attention.”

Cosmetic procedures for the hands

Many of us slather on hand cream each day in hopes of smoothing out rough skin and fine lines. But treatments to combat aging hands took a giant step forward a few years ago when the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the cosmetic filler Radiesse. This injectable dermal filler tackles one of aging’s biggest clues, returning fullness and softness to the backs of the hands, Dr. Friedler says.

“By injecting Radiesse into the skin on the backs of the hands, lost volume is quickly restored,” she adds. In addition, the dermal fill injections help stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, enhancing the end result. Radiesse treatment effects can last from 1 to 2 years.

Another winning procedure to achieve younger-looking hands is laser treatment. This tackles the brown pigment in age spots and freckles, breaking it down and sloughing it off a short time later.

“Most older adults have some sun damage on the tops of their hands, which can be unsightly and even embarrassing,” Dr. Friedler explains. “Laser treatments, which usually require 3 to 5 sessions to attain full effect, do an amazing job of getting rid of the sun’s worst damage.”

At-home hand tips

Cosmetic treatments for younger-looking hands will work even better if you also take easy, everyday steps to slow the hands of time. Dr. Friedler suggests these at-home tips:

  • Use soap-free cleansers, which aren’t as drying.
  • Wear cotton gloves inside rubber gloves while doing wet work such as dishwashing and use work gloves when doing hand-intense chores such as gardening.
  • Moisturize each time you wash your hands or use hand sanitizer with rich creams or emollients. “Bonus points for using moisturizers with retinol or hydroquinone in them, which help lighten age spots,” Dr. Friedler says.
  • Give yourself moisturizing hand and cuticle massages, which can help nutrient-rich blood circulate to the hands and nails more efficiently.
  • Get manicures but keep fingernails short and avoid cutting cuticles

Most importantly, Dr. Friedler urges us to apply sunscreen on our hands (as well as other exposed skin areas) every day, even in colder months. “Even ultraviolet light exposure on our hands through our car windshields adds up over time, freckling and spotting our hands,” she says.

Ultimately, the best approach to younger-looking hands is to treat your hands as you would your face, Dr. Friedler says. “Whatever combination of anti-aging tactics you use, be diligent and consistent,” she adds.
