Niche Beauty



Visible results based on science, not hype - Kristin Chen has been in the beauty industry for 20 years, living and working in many countries with different climates, environmental stresses and strains. After a long and futile search for a suitable skincare solution, she took action herself. Her vision: a result-oriented routine that can be adapted to the skin's needs, with clean and vegan ingredients. This is now successfully developed by an all-female research and development team in Tokyo. Which also fits the brand name: IRÉN is inspired by Irène Joliot-Curie, the daughter of Marie Curie and the second woman in history to win the Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
