MEET THE FOUNDER

 

CATARINA BARBOSA
(CEO and Certified Skincare Formulator)

 

 

As an honours degree holder in chemical engineering with a passion for cosmetics, I got deeper and deeper into cosmetics formulation. I was and am still curious about how they create and the type of ingredients was used in their cosmetics development.

My ambition to become a successful professional skincare formulator began when I decided to educate myself more about the benefits of natural and botanical ingredients in the skincare range I wanted to create.

Alongside my passion, my determination, perfection, attention to detail and chasing my dream led me to gain tremendous experience and knowledge to become a successful professional in the cosmetics sector. Meanwhile, I had an opportunity to add another feather to my hat by enrolling myself at the 1st accredited organic school – “International Organic Skincare Entrepreneur Program” from Formula Botanica.

"Catarina Barbosa Skincare" began with a goal by developing bespoke high-quality products that would make my customers feel inspired, comfortable and confident.

As I developed my brand “Catarina Barbosa Skincare”, I began with a promise to inspire women across the planet in their day-to-day lives, their sacrifices, their contribution and most importantly to honour them for all they all have been doing. “Catarina Barbosa Skincare” premium line of cosmetics are truly a tribute to the Greatest Portuguese Women and the women we all are.

I surely believe that you will enjoy my products as much as I do and feel free to explore and choose the products from my skincare line here.
