Skingredients® is a range of active, results-driven skincare products, created by the award-winning skincare expert, dermal facialist, skin tutor and bestselling author Jennifer Rock.
The award winning range Skingredients is comprised of two capsule collections: the Key 4® that everyone can (and should) be using as part of their daily skincare routine as it comprises all the key ingredients needed for skin health in a daily regime.The supplementary Match + Mix range, which is made up of three products designed to address more specific skincare concerns such as oily, dry and lacklustre skin.Skingredients can be used by all genders, all ages and all skin types, or as we like to say "all hoomans®. The range is entirely fragrance free and does not contain synthetic scents or essential oils because smells don’t change cells® and in our nerdie experience, they can often be the culprit of irritation and sensitisation. Skingredients products are vegan-friendly, too!
Education is a vital part of Skingredients' mission. By helping people everywhere to understand how their skin works, we aim to improve skin confidence through education and empowerment. Just as important is simplicity and that's why we've created the easy-to-use KeyFour and Mix + Match. Skincare can be simple and still deliver results, when it has the right levels and mix of ingredients. That’s why you can find handy details on all our packaging on how and when to use the product.
A whopping 91% of plastic isn’t recycled and a scary 11 million tons of plastic is predicted to be destined for our beautiful oceans each year according to the United Nations. It’s these frightening facts that inspired us to be part of the solution, not the problem. Skingredients has embarked on its “green” journey – and we’re not just talking about Skin Veg!.....Introducing Refills!!!
Our entire range of active-driven, clinically-proven skincare is housed in our reusable, durable outer tubes that have been designed to protect the integrity of the active formulations within. Our refillable inner tubes contain your Skingredients formulas and are designed to snugly fit inside the protective outer tubes. The refillable inner tubes are fully recyclable, whereas the durable outer tubes are designed to last multiple uses and cannot be recycled currently.
By using our Skingredients' KeyFour refills 4 times a year (that’s the typical usage), you are reducing your carbon emissions by approximately 60.2% (versus using our non-refillable packaging). **** That's a pretty impressive figure, don’t you think?
We have partnered with Plastics for Change whose mission to reduce the amount of plastic that ends up in our oceans by collecting the waste and providing plastic collectors a fair income and access to better livelihoods.
We have made an annual pledge to Plastics for Change that directly removes 28,000kg of plastic waste from clogging landfills and our oceans.
Nerdie note: Carbon emissions are measured as kg of carbon dioxide per 1000 pieces produced. The KeyFour includes PreProbiotic Cleanse, Skin Veg, Skin Protein and Skin Shield SPF 50 PA+++.

Jennifer Rock, the CEO & Founder of The Skin Nerd® is a multi-award winning skincare expert, dermal facialist and skin tutor.
In 2017, Jennifer launched the world’s first online skin consultation. Our highly trained team of Nerds have carried out over 50,000 in-depth, personalised skincare consultations that include an analysis of that individual’s skincare routine, skin concerns, skin goals and bespoke skincare regime with recommendation products and tailored advice.

Our in-house chemist Gabriela graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 2015 with a bachelors degree in Medicinal Chemistry and went on to complete her masters in pharmaceutical analysis where she received a first-class honour (GPA 4) - the highest in her class.
While Gabriela’s BA introduced her to the basics of formulation chemistry, it was her MSc that really gave her a more in-depth understanding of both the theory and the practical aspects of formulation chemistry. She is proficient in excipient and active ingredient-based lab work as well as the market approval processes on products designed for human use. Gabriela's main responsibilities are creating and delivering new skincare formulations that involve both ingredient-based lab work as well as a market approvals for products designed for human use.
