Skirr (verb) to glide or move faster

Skirr is the sustainable  skincare brand for eco conscious adventure and endurance athletes who are looking for skincare to address sport specific problems and protect their natural playground.

Meaning to glide or move faster, Skirr, an old scots word, is the perfect name for our brand. Skirr is made in Scotland and tested in some of the toughest conditions. Being based on the West Coast of Scotland, amidst the best of natures outdoor playground, there are plenty of mountains and coastline for testing product effectiveness at the same time as having fun.


 Skirr from the start .....

 

Skirr was founded by Moira Newiss to provide eco conscious athletes with effective natural and organic skincare products.  After formulating products for the active hobbies that her family got up to, including running, cycling, swimming, hiking and skiing she realised that there was a gap in the market for high quality and sustainable sport skincare. 

Moira who is also a Nutritional Therapist previously also qualified in organic skincare formulation after graduating from Formula Botanica, the world's leading, accredited, online Cosmetic Science School. With her interest in health as well as skincare and sports she was well placed to combine her passions to create a skincare brand that is good for your skin as well as for the environment. 

Skirr is a brand that aims to be sustainable in everything it does, from ingredient selection to packaging and transportation to the customer.

Launching with a hero anti-chafing Sport Body Balm and then an Antimicrobial Soap, we are now working on a Foot Balm for Athletes to prevent fungal problems as well as a Ladies Cycling Cream for those ultra sensitive lady bits! We aim to deliver exceptional products in the most eco-friendly packaging solutions that will disrupt the sport skincare market.
