Female-founded clean beauty brand Furtuna Skin operates under the philosophy that what you put on is just as important as what you put in your body. The brand combines old world wisdom and modern medicine to maximize product potency and results. Ingredients are hand-picked and foraged from their rare and uniquely powerful plants found at the organic La Furtuna Estate in Sicily to protect the raw materials from damage in an eco-sustainable way. The company then uses its signature Soundbath Extraction Method, a pioneering extraction method first used by the pharmaceutical industry, to protect the potency of ingredients without harsh chemicals.
Some challenges faced for Furtuna included launching a made-in-Italy brand during a global pandemic. This then led to a need to pivot to a purely DTC and digital marketing strategy for launch year due to retail and in-person experiential changes.
