History of the REN brand
The brand REN was created by Antony Buck and Robert Calcraft. They wanted to formulate clean cosmetic products to give a healthier and more beautiful skin that looks younger for longer.
When she was pregnant, Antony’s wife had an allergy to cosmetics. They decided to study products’ formulation and they were fascinated and disappointed at the use of synthetic ingredients in classic cosmetic products.
So they decided to found their own natural cosmetic brand !
They wanted to make products 100% plant, modern, efficient, formulated with the latest hi-tech with a unique texture and fragrance so that they are enjoyable, and free from skin-unfriendly chemical ingredients.
They called this innovative concept “Clean skincare” and the brand REN, which means “clean” in Swedish.
Then, Antony Buck and Robert Calcraft met a brilliant French pharmacist who graduated from a Doctorate in Dermacosmetology. She allowed them to launch the first range of natural cosmetic products in 2000 in more than 30 countries all over the world.
