Founded by Catarina Barbosa, a chemical engineer at heart, in Vila Nova de Milfontes, the eponymous brand is built upon values of integrity, transparency and tradition.

Inspired by abundant sun, green valleys and refreshing waters nestled next to the Atlantic Ocean, the brand has soon learnt to combine its authentic roots with the scientific accuracy of a sought-after and world-wide award-winning skincare brand. 

 Taking cues from the true benefits of natural and botanical ingredients, Catarina has delved into a skincare range she truly believes in, nurturing and accomplishing a niche community and cult value.

 Focused on a local and handmade formula, Catarina Barbosa is based upon a fine, organic and mature femininity.

A gentle, conscious finess.


CEO and Certified Skincare Formulator

As a graduate with honors in chemical engineering, my fascination with cosmetics formulation led me on a journey of discovery into the intricacies of creating skincare products. Driven by a passion for cosmetics and a desire to understand the composition of these formulations, I embarked on a quest to unravel the secrets behind their creation.

My ambition to excel as a skincare formulator was ignited by a profound interest in the benefits of natural and botanical ingredients. Through relentless self-education and a commitment to learning, I honed my skills and expertise in crafting skincare solutions that harness the power of nature.

With the inception of "Catarina Barbosa Skincare," my mission was clear: to create bespoke, high-quality products that instill inspiration, comfort, and confidence in my customers. Each formulation is meticulously crafted to reflect my dedication to empowering women worldwide and honoring their resilience, sacrifices, and contributions.

As I unveil the premium line of cosmetics under the "Catarina Barbosa Skincare" brand, I extend a heartfelt tribute to the Greatest Portuguese Women and women everywhere. It is my sincere belief that you will find joy and satisfaction in using my products, and I invite you to explore and select from my skincare line with confidence and enthusiasm.
