Safe, Natural Ingredients For Skin Care
Our story began when our founder, Kirsten Thomas, began her search for non-irritating, non-toxic products to soothe her own skin. After years of struggling to find natural products for sensitive skin, Kirsten realized that healthy, glowing skin starts with a holistic approach.
With these priorities in mind, she created Ayr Skin Care, using natural, effective ingredients to create safe skin care products for all skin types. Nature provides us with all of the essential vegan skin care ingredients we need for a healthy, wellness-focused skin care routine.
As part of our mission, we want to be as transparent as possible about what goes into our products. Here are some of the nourishing ingredients we love to use.
The oils we use gently moisturize while nourishing your skin with powerful antioxidants. These oils are great natural ingredients for skin, and are especially valuable for their anti-aging properties.
Some of the oils we use include:
- Polynesian Tamanu Oil
- Prickly Pear Seed Oil
- Fair Trade Baobab Seed Oil
- Orbignya Oleifera (Babassu) Seed Oil
- Camellia Oleifera (Camellia) Seed Oil
- Fair Trade Marula Oil

*All of these oils are 100% organic.

Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins, and Peptides
These powerful natural skin care ingredients are some of our favorites when it comes to hydration and anti-aging. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin hold in moisture for plumping and hydrating effects.
Peptides like Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 (peptide), Diaminobutyroyl Hydroxythreonine (tetrapeptide), and Palmitoyl Dipeptide-5 Diaminohydroxybutyrate (tripeptide) have wow-worthy anti-aging properties and can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Lastly, vitamins are essential for healthy, glowing skin. We include vitamins in our safe skin care products to nourish your skin and get you the results you’re looking for.
Our list of acids, vitamins, and peptides includes:
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C)
