Natural Skincare from Portugal
“At Catarina Barbosa Skincare, we use the finest quality green products that are developed to improve your skin. In our state-of-the-art laboratory at Vila Nova de Milfontes in Portugal, we combine purely natural ingredients with advanced science to harness the true power of nature. Here, through relentless research, combined experience plus trial and error, we have created our remarkable skincare collection.”
But the best natural skincare isn’t simply about it being natural. The choice and formulation of ingredients is paramount. Catarina Barbosa select innovative, high-performing ingredients in their most potent ratios to support skin health. That means more of the good stuff, less of the unnecessary and ultimate skin results. You’ll find Bakuchiol within the Amália Facial Oil to tackle fine lines and skin texture – not simply offer intense moisturisation. There’s cleaver – but gentle – fruit enzymes within the Florbela Mask to retexturize the skin without irritation. And the Eunice Floral Essence? The frosted glass bottle contains a concoction of natural extracts, antioxidants and hydrators. Gotu Kola Extract helps keep skin cells tough and resistant to sagging while Bamboo Extract offers calming properties, boosts radiance and Aquaxyl limits water loss and improves hydration.
“Our mission is to create an authentic and transparent natural skincare line that delivers visible results whilst using sustainable ingredients.”
Want smoother, softer skin? Meet Florbela.
Florbela, the luxurious golden gelée mask we’ve fallen in love with is one of the hero products from Catarina Barbosa. In 2022, Florbela won the coveted Beauty Shortlist Award. A blend of Papaya and Pineapple enzymes gently exfoliate the skin leaving it exceptionally soft and radiant. It also smells incredible with a sophisticated scent of neroli and sandalwood. Florbela also feels incredible; a balmy gelée texture it is unlike anything we’ve tried and is able to smooth and soften skin in a gentle way without compromising the skin barrier.
The natural fruit enzymes help ‘digest’ dead surface skin cells that might be causing dullness to your complexion. A single application of Florbela and our skin looked vibrant and rejuvenated with a soft, nourished texture thanks to the delicate balance of Lipids, Camellia Oil, Jojoba Oil and Buriti Oil.
The Award Winning Serum. Introducing Maria.
Winner of multiple awards, including Editor’s Choice at the 2022 Beauty Shortlist Awards, Catarina Barbosa Maria is the superhero serum of the collection.
Instantly hydrating, this lightweight gel-serum is fast absorbing and contains the signature scent of Neroli that makes application a ritual for the senses. An advanced formulation of high-performance active ingredients like Vegetable Ceramides, Vegetable Collagen, Prebiotics, Glycogen and Saccharide Isomerate work in complete synergy to deliver a brighter complexion. The skin texture and signs of skin aging are improved, while Maria also helps to support the skin microbiome for a complexion that is nourished, hydrated and infinitely soft.
By adding ceramides to the skin, the skin’s barrier is strengthened. Say goodbye to dry, irritated and sensitive skin. Glycogen also helps to reduce skin sensitivity and reinforces the skin’s natural barrier function. Been too generous with the exfoliation? We’re looking at you. Maria also contains prebiotics that supports the skin’s own microbiome and the growth of skin-friendly bacteria and inhibits the growth of unwanted and harmful pathogens. We call Maria a superhero serum because it does all this while also offering long lasting hydration, limits water loss and improves the look of redness and other signs of compromised skin.
