Dr Irena Eris Skin care

The Dr Irena Eris company was established on the basis of dreams, passion and hard work, and continues to develop thanks to all the people who have helped in its creation.

The Dr Irena Eris Cosmetic Laboratories was established in 1983 as a cottage industry with a single employee and producing a single kind of cream. Over twenty four years have passed, and there is nothing left to remind one of the firm's humble beginnings. It now has 500 employees, produces a million units a month, has a range of several hundred cosmetic products and the Dr Irena Eris brand is now one of the most highly valued and recognized brands in Poland. The following are the other values, which just as twenty years ago, so today are extremely important to the firm: High quality, reliability and honesty, respect for people, innovation and a modern approach to all operations. Dr. Irena Eris and her husband Henryk Orfinger are the firm's founders.
In 2001 we started our own Centre of Science and Research of Dr Irena Eris where teams of biologists, molecular biologists, dermatologists and allergologists do unique research on the skin cells – fibroblasts and cells of vascular endothelium. Unique in the cosmetic branch in-vitro research on the skin cells (fibroblasts, keranocites and melanocites) is done in the Centre.

Dr Irena Eris Cosmetic Laboratory S.A is the only cosmetics manufacturer in Poland and one of the few in Europe and worldwide to carry out advanced research using in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo methods in our own Research Centre. Research results are presented on international conferences and published in scientific journals, including major scientific periodicals included in the ISI Master Journal List, a list of scientific journals created and updated by the Institute for Scientific Information. See publications.

Modern production of good quality skin care products requires a technological expertise. Cosmetics and skin care products are currently produced in conditions similar to those required to produce pharmaceuticals, i.e. with high standards of cleanliness and production care. But in order to provide a safe and efficient product we needed the scientific capability. Therefore we developed our own Dr Irena Eris Scientific Research Centre with modern laboratories which allow to conduct diversified research.
Tests carried out in the Research Centre take two distinct directions and largely exceed the required framework. The first type of innovative research serves to determine the behaviour of isolated skin cells influenced by cosmetic raw materials. This means that the effectiveness of the new active ingredients is observed and analysed on cell cultures. Another sphere of research – efficacy tests – provides an undeniable proof of the properties of a given cosmetic product as they confirm the declared mechanism of action of the product on the skin and allow to evaluate its usage properties.
