The skincare products that women as young as 13 use were created in the 1970’s. Emotional well-being is ignored altogether; technology/data are relatively unexploited. Mental health and well-being, particularly when linked to beauty and appearance are a clear opportunity.
Plenaire is derived from the French expression for “in the open air”, celebrating a more relaxed and transparent approach to beauty. Plenaire reframes the classic coming of age skincare rituals as indulgent moments of self care, creating a bridge between skincare rituals and emotional well-being.
Plenaire's award winning, multi-faceted formulations like Rose Jelly and Violet Paste are based on uncomplicated, clean ingredients, perfect for delicate and sensitive skin.
Christened “The white T-shirt of the beauty industry” : it's not fussy or frilly, but is super reliable and can be accessorized- by Byrdie Beauty, Plenaire is found alongside other independent brands, in some of the world’s finest beauty retailers.
