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.

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.

COSRX’s a Newly Launched No White Cast Sunscreen

The derm skincare brand, COSRX has announced the launch of Vitamin E Vitalizing Sunscreen SPF 50 + which meets the requirements for broad-spectrum protection.

COSRX worked closely with the dermatologists to create the sunscreen formulations and pulled from their own experiences in the beauty industry to develop a brand that understood every single person’s skin concerns. As a result, Vitamin E Vitalizing Sunscreen SPF 50 + is a daily sun protector formulated with chemical-based SPF ingredients that are paired with a vitamin E (Tocopherol) to protect all skin types, even safe for sensitive skin. At the same time, an antioxidant that reduces free radicals and helps reduce visible signs of aging and skin damage.

“According to our research on consumer reviews, most of consumers often used as an excuse to skip it entirely are the sunscreen allergy (causes irritated skin) or the white cast it leaves behind. Whether you notice it upon initial application, or it only really starts bothering you once the sweat beads start rolling down your face, the discomfort is enough to deter many consumers from wearing sunscreen altogether although wearing sunscreen is important year-round, even when it is cold and overcast outside. With that in mind, we have developed and created Vitamin E Vitalizing Sunscreen SPF 50 +,” said the brand representative. “The reef-safe sunscreen provides broad-spectrum sun protection as well as a ‘flawless matte finish’. The product is also formulated to provide “bare coverage with minimal white cast”. she added.

COSRX Vitamin E Vitalizing Sunscreen SPF 50 +

Pharrell’s Humanrace Ventures Into Suncare

Pharrell Williams is making his first foray into sun care. His product company Humanrace will debut two refillable SPF 30 products, which are both made from mineral-based formulations. The expansion continues Humanrace’s commitment to formulas for all skin types.

This venture has been two years in the making, and with it, Humanrace seeks to tackle the misconception that sunscreen is not necessary for people of color and those with deeper skin tones.

Our Earth’s ozone layer naturally protects us from harmful UV radiation from the sun, but we still need to protect ourselves daily from the UV rays that get through. We believe there is room under the sun for everyone, and we all need to be wearing sunscreen daily.

Pharrell Williams, singer

Developed with the help of Pharrell’s personal dermatologist of 20 years, Dr. Elena Jones, the new line emphasizes that everyone needs to protect themselves from the sun, no matter their skin color.

The myth that dark skin can go without sunscreen originates from the fact that melanin — the substance that produces pigment in the skin, eyes and hair — helps absorb harmful UV rays. Basically: the darker your skin is, the less likely you are to get sunburned. Despite melanin’s protective properties, melanated skin is still susceptible to the effects of sun damage, including dark spots, wrinkles, and skin cancer.

The biggest misconception is that deeper skin tones don’t need sunscreen, but no matter what color your skin is, all skin tones need a daily sunscreen, rain or shine. I have patients every day asking what they should be doing to care for their skin, the easiest thing to do is start wearing sunscreen daily.

Dr. Elena Jones, dermatologist

Because there’s less awareness surrounding the necessity of sunscreen for dark-skinned people, Black patients are more likely to be diagnosed with skin cancer at a later stage, resulting in a worse prognosis. In fact, a study conducted by the CDC showed that the five-year- melanoma survival rate among Black folks was 66.2 percent, compared with 90.1 percent for white people.

The launch consists of Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer and Ozone Body Protection Cream, they work in tandem to protect and hydrate your skin from head to toe. Vegan, fragrance-free, with PA ++++ protection, the Ozone Protection Set is the final step in your routine, rain or shine.

Humanrace Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer

Created for daily use, the Ozone Face Protection Daily Moisturizer leads the charge. A mineral SPF 30 made with effective ingredients for your skin. Formulated with non-nano zinc oxide and the company’s signature snow mushroom extract and blue light protection for a sheer, white cast free finish for hydrated, protected skin.

Humanrace Ozone Body Protection Cream

Next up is the water-resistant (40 min) Ozone Body Protection Cream, a mineral SPF 30 without the white cast. This formula dual-functions as a hydrating body cream. Squalane, jojoba seed oil and aloe work with our signature snow mushroom extract to hydrate the skin.


The new refillable products come in bold orange packaging crafted from 50% post-consumer recycled landfill plastic, and consumers will be able to refill their sun care empties at a discounted price. The body cream and face moisturizer will each retail for $58 and $52, respectively, or consumers can buy the Ozone Protection Set, which includes both products, for $94.

The Humanrace Suncare line will officially launch for U.S. and European consumers on the brand’s website on July 14, they will be available before then exclusively for attendees of the musician’s music festival, ‘Something in the Water’, taking place in Washington, D.C., on Juneteenth weekend, June 17 to 19, and to Humanrace subscribers. 

Considering Pharrell’s shockingly luminous skin, you’ll want to heed his advice: sunscreen, always! Come into the beautiful world of Humanrace.

Summer is Here: Making Educated and Informed Choices to Stay Sun-Safe




Dermatologist Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins, MD, MPH with Advanced Dermatology PC with Tips on Reducing the Risks of Skin Cancer While Enjoying Summer.

As never before, the chance to get outside under sunny skies is a relief. “It’s been especially welcoming as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic”, observes Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins, a dermatologist with Advanced Dermatology PC. After weeks spent inside to limit the spread of coronavirus, it is no surprise that we are all anxious to get outside and enjoy the sun. “However” emphasizes Dr. Britt Kimmins, “we want to make sure that we also protect ourselves from the damaging and potentially deadly ultraviolet light”.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the world. In the United States, cases outnumber all other cancers combined, according to the non-profit Skin Cancer Foundation.

In spite of all we know, rates of skin cancer continue to rise. In this country, 20% of the population will get skin cancer by the time we’re seventy. Last year, it was estimated that 192,310 people in the U.S. would be diagnosed with melanoma – the deadliest cancer of all.

Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins

The threat of the sun’s ultraviolet rays is so great that the World Health Organization lists them as Group 1 carcinogens, alongside plutonium and cigarettes. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services also has labeled the sun’s radiation as a known carcinogen. “Ninety percent or more of cases of skin cancer are linked to sun exposure”, states Dr. Britt Kimmins. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “having 5 or more sunburns doubles your risk of developing melanoma”. In 2020, it is estimated that the number of melanoma cases is expected to rise.

Protecting children and helping young people develop healthy sun habits are keys to reducing skin cancer rates. Just one blistering sunburn during childhood almost doubles the risk of melanoma. Most of the damage occurs before the age of eighteen.

Dr. Allison Britt Kimmins

“Every one of us – regardless of skin tone or age – will benefit from practicing ‘safe sun precautions”, advises Dr. Britt Kimmins, who makes the following suggestions to enjoy the outdoors safely.

5 Tips to Stay Sun-Safe This Summer – and Year-Round

  1. Stick to your skin-checkup schedule: “Early intervention is essential to stay safe from skin cancer. “When detected and treated early, the 5 year survival rate for melanoma is over 98%. Dr. Britt Kimmins recommends that patients see a dermatologist to establish their baseline level of skin health and identify their level of risk. Scheduling regular annual skin examinations will help to monitor the skin for changes and encourage self-examination. This supports early intervention and effective treatment”.
  2. Make sure that your sunscreen protects you: “People may think they’re protected when they are not”, warns Dr. Britt Kimmins. “We need to apply enough sunscreen at least 15 minutes before going outdoors and reapply every 2 hours while outside. If swimming or sweating, more frequent reapplication may be necessary. It is important to apply enough sunscreen to all exposed areas including hands, feet, neck, scalp and ears. A one ounce shot glass is the amount needed to cover exposed areas of skin”.
  3. Remember: You need more than sunscreen: “Even if we follow the American Academy of Dermatology’s guidelines”, notes Dr. Britt Kimmins, “and use a water-resistant product that is SPF 30 or higher with full-spectrum UVA/UVB protection, we cannot completely avoid the sun’s rays. Between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun is most direct, we need to be careful: Seek shade and wear protective clothing, including a hat and sunglasses”.
  4. Indoor ‘sun’ is just as risky: “Just one indoor tanning session”, Dr. Britt Kimmins emphasizes, “can increase the risk of cancer by almost 70%. Additionally, tanning beds primarily emit UVA rays which penetrate our skin more deeply, further accelerating changes associated with aging”.
  5. Pass safe sun habits on to the next generation: “Protecting children and helping young people develop healthy sun habits are keys to reducing skin cancer rates”, states Dr. Britt Kimmins. Just one blistering sunburn during childhood almost doubles the risk of melanoma. Most of the damage occurs before the age of eighteen. Young people are influenced by the behaviors of their caregivers. We see this, for example, with tanning bed use, which often begins during teen years, in the company of a family member”.

“As we all spend time outdoors this summer, let’s remember our sun-safety suggestions so we can stay healthy now – and skin-cancer-free for years to come”.
