SkinTra cosmetics in focus – everything you need to know about them

An article that no one asked for, but everyone needed. Today, let's take a look at the Polish beauty brand SkinTra. To put it simply, SkinTra is a cosmetics brand created by the Cosibella team. But what makes it different? How was it created? What are the principles behind it? You can find the answers to all the questions here.

SkinTra – Skin Transformation

As we have already mentioned, SkinTra is a Polish skincare brand. All products are created in Poland. This is certainly important information for people who want to encourage local companies.

Where Did The Idea For The Brand Come From?

As you can probably guess, this was not an overnight decision. In fact, SkinTra already had its beginning in 2019. Janusz, Cosibella's founder, approached the topic of creating a beauty brand with Natalia, who was still in the cosmetology consulting business at the time. Thanks to the fact that she had direct contact with Cosibella's clients, she knew very well what they liked, what they didn't, and what problems they faced. They started working on the brand back in 2020. Natalia officially became SkinTra's project manager and has been overseeing it ever since.
Natalia already had an outline of the cosmetics that would appear in our assortment as a private label. SkinTra cosmetics were created to represent your needs, which is why both Cosibella cosmetologists and our customers had a chance to test SkinTra prototypes.

What Sets Skintra Apart?

Combination Of Technology And Nature

Today, more and more companies are deciding to combine these two things. We were keen on fusing technology and nature, and we can safely say that this has been a success. Although SkinTra cosmetics are not certified as having natural formulas, a vast majority of our cosmetics have been created based on natural ingredients. You certainly won't find substances here that are commonly considered "bad."
It is worth stressing that we never intended to create a 100% natural products. We cared about strong active effects and high concentrations of ingredients.

Simple formulas

We can't say that all SkinTra cosmetics have 5 ingredients each (although there are some). However, we were keen not to include unnecessary ingredients. Our creams have definitely richer compositions than other products since they have a multi-action effect. But cosmetics that focus on strong effects, such as exfoliation or anti-aging (black series) have much shorter and simpler compositions.

No Fragrances

Our final decision was – no added fragrances. This was not an obvious choice, as views here were strongly divided. Some people like how cosmetics smell. Others, however, reach for unscented cosmetics for various reasons, such as personal preferences or allergies.
We wanted SkinTra cosmetics to be for everyone, so in the end we decided not to add any essential oils or ready-made fragrances to our products.
The only product in the case of which we decided to withdraw from this decision was our new cleansing gel. However, the selected scent formula does not contain any allergens, so it is still suitable for people with sensitive skin.

High Concentrations Of Active Ingredients

We were certain about this decision from the very beginning. We knew that our products would have high concentrations of active ingredients. Above all, we wanted them to be highly effective – after all, the name of our brand (SkinTra – Skin Transformation) is no coincidence.
This is how the 8 first SkinTra cosmetics were created:
  • Serum with 20% ascorbic acid and ferulic acid
  • Face and eye serum with 0.3% retinal
  • Revitalizing serum with 30% GFF (mushroom filtrate), 10% azeloglycine, lactobionic acid 2%
  • Year-round 9% acid tonic
  • Year-round 24% acid peel
  • Prebiotic conditioning tonic with 5% GFF, 2% prebiotics, 2% niacinamide and 3% azeloglycine
  • Prebiotic nourishing cream with 10% GFF, 1% prebiotics, 1% ceramides and urea
  • Prebiotic moisturizing cream with 15% GFF, 5% niacinamide, 3% azeloglycine and 2% prebiotics
Recently, we’ve also added 3 new products:
  • Glucoside Gel Cleanser
  • Antioxidant Broadband Cream SPF 50+, PA++++ IR, Blue Light
  • Protective antioxidant essence
    Below, you can find in-depth descriptions of each SkinTra product.

Las na Zawsze Foundation

The surprises don't end here. We also focus on ecology, less waste movement and care for the environment. That's why we decided to cooperate with the Las na zawsze (Forest Forever) Foundation.
This foundation, as the name says, is engaged in planting forests in Poland. They legally protect land so that trees, shrubs and other plants create ecosystems for years to come. Much of the planting is done on uncultivated land near existing forests.
What are they planting? First of all, broadleaf trees that are resistant to environmental factors. In addition to this, the foundation also plants shrubs, undergrowth plants and fruit trees – they are keen to have biodiversity in these areas.
And now for the most important part. For every cosmetic produced, 0.5m² of forest will be planted. By caring for your skin, you can also contribute to caring for the environment.

1 product = 0.5m² of forest

Low Price High Quality

Many of our clients were amazed by the price of SkinTra cosmetics. Our premise was to create cosmetics for everyone.
We are aware of the prices of ingredients, manufacturing and research, and we also want to be honest with you. We remain transparent, so you can see the concentrations of ingredients written on the labels. We hope that the cost of ingredients will not change, and we will be able to stick to our prices.

SkinTra Cosmetics – High Efficiency

You already know what we care about and what guides us in making our cosmetics. Now we'd like to tell you a little more about the products themselves.
We've gathered the most important information here, but I recommend checking the product profiles as well, since the contain very detailed information about each cosmetic.
SkinTra cosmetics are organized into 3 series, each with a different color label:
  • Black label – the most potent cosmetics active. Colloquially, we can call them "hardcore".
  • Pink label – gentle cosmetics with richer compositions. We would call them "SOS products."
  • White label – basic products for everyday skincare routine.
SkinTra – Destructor – Year-Round Acid Peeling 24%

SkinTra – Destructor – Year-Round Acid Peeling 24%

I knew from the beginning that this would be the first product I wanted to tell you about.
I will immodestly say that this is the best acid scrub I have ever used. It exfoliates the skin extremely well. After just one use, you can already notice so-called micro-exfoliation and gradually disappearing dry cuticles.
You can use this 10-minute acid scrub even in summer! Surprised? We've tested Descructor, and it doesn't show photosensitizing or phototoxic effects, so you can also use it when the sun is shining hard. If you've been wanting to put off acid peels for the summer, now you have a great alternative. SkinTra peel is sure to become your must have for the whole year. It has become mine... Of course, no matter the weather, remember about using your SPF 50+.
Main active ingredients: 20% mandelic acid, 2% ethylated form of vitamin C, 2% tranexamic acid, 2% azeloglycine, 1% kojic acid

SkinTra – Light Your Skin – Serum with Vitamin C 20% and Ferulic Acid

SkinTra – Light Your Skin – Serum with Vitamin C 20% and Ferulic Acid

Do you remember the yellow Timeless serum with vitamin C and ferulic acid? Unfortunately, it did not meet EU conditions and had to be withdrawn, but nothing lost! We know how much our clients loved this product, so we created this 20% ascorbic acid serum. It effectively lightens hyperpigmentation, evens skin tone and has an antioxidating effect. It's safe to say that this is a serum for everyone, though people with oily, mixed and hyperpigmented skin will especially love it.
Main active ingredients: 20% ascorbic acid, ferulic acid, panthenol, vitamin E, sodium hyaluronate
Formula: very light, water-based
Color: transparent
Product pH: approx. 2.2
Fragrance: delicately perceptible, slightly acidic scent

SkinTra – Liquid Happiness

SkinTra – Liquid Happiness – Face & Eye Serum with Retinal 0,3%

Another hardcore SkinTra product is this serum with retinal, i.e. the most active derivative of retinoic acid. There are relatively few cosmetics with retinal on the market, and they come at a very high price. We wanted to change that, and that's why we created a serum with 0.3% retinal that everyone can afford.
What sets this serum apart? A high concentration of retinal, a lightweight formula and, most importantly, the fact that the serum can also be applied under the eyes! This product has been ophthalmologically tested. It is a must have if you want to use a cosmetic with a very strong anti-aging effect.
Main active ingredients: 0.3% retinal, squalane, watermelon oil, vitamin E
Formula: very light, oil-based
Color: transparent
Fragrance: unscented

SkinTra – Reviver – Revitalizing Serum

SkinTra – Reviver – Revitalizing Serum

This is a product for people who love ferments in cosmetics. This revitalizing serum contains 30% GFF, a by-product of the yeast fermentation process that has powerful antioxidizing effects. In addition, it contains an azelaic acid derivative, 10% azeloglycine, which lightens hyperpigmentation and has an antibacterial effect. You will also find niacinamide, lactobionic acid, panthenol and allantoin in the formula. Reviver is definitely a revitalizing bomb.

SkinTra – Brightoner – Year-Round Acid Toner 9%

SkinTra – Brightoner – Year-Round Acid Toner 9%

The last cosmetic in the black series is a year-round acid tonic, which is another product containing acids that does not show photosensitizing or phototoxic effects. It can be used in many ways, which you will find in the product description. From my side, I can say that it's a great addition to tthe skin care routine if you want to deal with hyperpigmentation. If acid peels are too strong for you, this tonic is a great option to pick.

SkinTra – Everything What Your Skin Will Love –
 Prebiotic Caring Toner

SkinTra – Everything What Your Skin Will Love – Prebiotic Caring Toner

This milky tonic with prebiotics is another hit of our brand. We can say without hesitation that this is a product for everyone. Why? It can safely replace a light, moisturizing skin care cream for oily skin; and those with dry, dehydrated skin will love this product as a tonic or serum for its regeneration and restoration of the hydrolipidic barrier. This product can certainly be compared to the moisturizing tonic with ceramides and HA by A. Florence, with the difference that it has a much lower price. You can find more information in the product description.

SkinTra – Let Your Skin Drink Up – Prebiotic Moisturizing Cream

Our next product is a moisturizing cream with prebiotics. This is a cosmetic that will work well for people with oily, mixed and dehydrated skin. How does this cream differ from the nourishing one? First of all, this cream is O/W, or oil in water, while the nourishing cream is W/O (water in oil).
In addition, the moisturizing cream has a higher concentration of Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, which calms inflammation and prevents hyperpigmentation. It also contains 5% niacinamide, which acts as a regenerative, seboregulatory and brightening agent. If you are looking for a moisturizer that will lighten hyperpigmentation and boost skin regeneration – Let Your Skin Drink Up is the perfect choice.

SkinTra – Let Your Skin Feed On – Prebiotic Nourishing Cream

SkinTra – Let Your Skin Feed On – Prebiotic Nourishing Cream

This Prebiotic Nourishing Cream is an ideal option for dry, dehydrated skin - especially if you need strong hydration and nourishment. It is certainly the richest cream in the SkinTra lineup. I wouldn't call it " oily", but the formula of the product is thick, and the cream forms an occlusion on the surface of the skin. It contains azeloglycine, so in addition to regenerating and moisturizing the skin, it also has a brightening effect. It will be perfect for dry, mature and hyperpigmented skin.
