About Irene Forte

Wellness Consultant Rocco Forte Hotels & Founder of Irene Forte Skincare

Irene Forte’s personal ambition to create an incomparable spa has resulted in a range of experiences that diffuse the essence of Mediterranean wellness, and lift your whole being.

Physical, emotional and spiritual health are all addressed in luxurious settings where innovative Irene Forte Skincare products, and advanced technologies, are used by expert practitioners to restore your body and soul.

As the Wellness Consultant of Rocco Forte Hotels and an Advisory Board Member of the Global Wellness Summit, Irene has always understood the importance of a holistic approach to beauty. This is reflected in her constant emphasis on nourishing, organic ingredients. 

As a businesswoman, Irene embodies her family’s entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to ethical business practices. She sees her skincare company as part of a much wider system of people and organisations, nature and the environment; and she is personally committed to doing the ‘right things’ to ensure that her products and processes are as sustainable as possible.  


Irene Forte Skincare


Our proprietary Irene Forte Skincare range achieves outstanding results with natural ingredients in formulations shaped by 35 years of skincare research and development. Based on the research of our Scientific Director Dr. Francesca Ferri- a pioneer in the medical use of plant extracts to treat skin conditions- Irene has introduced novel ingredients in products which have shown extraordinary results in independent clinical and user trials. Irene Forte Skincare products are suitable for all skin types and have even been clinically approved for sensitive skin.

The core ingredients are harvested at Verdura's Organic Farm, and alongside these we have integrated zero-waste upcycled ingredients, made from nutrient-rich plant-based leftovers. Irene’s insistence on plant-based sources means all our ingredients are certified vegan.

Irene Forte’s approach is distinguished by her high ethical standards. In recognition of those standards, Irene Forte Skincare has already achieved B Corp status and has been awarded the Butterfly Mark by Positive Luxury for sustainable excellence.

Face & Body Treatments

Facials range from the Etna Age-Defying Facial, which integrates hot and cold volcanic stones from Mount Etna with a triple facial massage technique to rebalance, revitalise and defy ageing; to the signature Forte Facial Massage, which includes pressure point and a deep tissue face work out to enhance natural collagen production. If technology-based treatments are preferred, the Rigenerante Zemits Facial lifts and plumps the skin through the use of Oxygen, Microcurrent and LED.

The wide selection of body treatments includes the typically local Sicilian Earth and Sea Toning Treatment using Trapani sea salt with a nutrient rich algae and clay mud wrap, and the Mediterranean Nourishing Treatment based on nourishing Sicilian oils and the Sicilian White Wine Body Cream. The spas also offer Endosphères, a non-invasive treatment for body contouring, muscle toning, lymphatic drainage, cellulite reduction and pain relief. 

Irene Forte Spas have partnered with The Amethyst Trust, a Standards Authority for Touch in Cancer Care (SATCC), to provide therapies for those living with and recovering from cancer. The Restorative Facial and Nurturing Massage start with guided breathwork, and are personalised by an SATCC accredited therapist to suit individual needs, relaxing and soothing body and mind, while promoting a deep sense of peace.
