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 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.
