Just the Right Ingredients

Iren’s latest serums are created in collaboration with A*Star researchers. They use only ingredients that are necessary, and which are the cleanest and safest. These are then sealed using the brand’s “ziplock” technology, which forms a veil over the actives to ensure freshness and efficacy until the serum is applied on the skin.
