What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

INARI Arctic Beauty is an organic beauty brand inspired by the purity and strength of the Arctic nature. INARI Arctic Beauty is clean and natural. All products contain a unique blend of six plants that grow in the Lapland region of Finland, near the Arctic Circle. The native plants and berries that grow in the extreme climatic conditions of the Arctic Circle are packed with highly concentrated nutrients and vitamins. 

INARI Arctic Beauty’s face care products combine the essence of these Arctic plants with luxurious textures to hydrate and nourish your skin, protecting from pollution and harmful environmental influences.

THE INARI ACTIC BEAUTY RANGE COMPRISES THREE PRODUCTS

  • Midsummer Magic Day Cream with a moderate sun protecting factor is a hydrating day cream. The moisturiser has a soft, light texture that melts into the skin without leaving it shiny.

  • Midummer Magic Serum is an intensive moisturising treatment which can be applied in the morning or evening. The fresh, non-sticky texture makes this product perfect for layering.

With its luxurious yet light textures that were inspired by Asian beauty trends, INARI Arctic Beauty protects, hydrates and nourishes your skin. Experience the magic of the Arctic nature!

MIDSUMMER MAGIC WHEN THE SUN NEVER GOES DOWN

We call our range the „Midsummer Magic", as above the Arctic Circle the sun never goes down in midsummer. Even at 3 o’clock in the morning it is bright outside, and the beautiful Arctic wilderness landscape glows in the soft light. Your body slows down while your mind becomes calm and serene. It is a unique experience!

In the Arctic region, the native plants develop a special resilience in order to survive the extreme climatic conditions: 24 hours of constant sunlight in midsummer and extreme cold in the winter months from October to May.

Because of these unusual circumstances, Arctic plants are especially rich in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. INARI Arctic Beauty uses these powerful plant extracts in the exclusive arctic blend to create a highly effective organic skin care range that is suitable for men and women.

A NEW DIMENSION OF FACE CARE

The Arctic region is the cleanest and most unpolluted environment in the world. The soil is pure, the water is crystal clear and the air is fresh and invigorating. The climatic conditions are severe but the plants, berries, lichens and roots that survive in this harsh climate offer a unique nutrient profile and highly concentrated active ingredients.

Together with leading experts and scientists in Germany and Scandinavia we are developing a new and highly effective organic plant-based skin care complex: the Arctic Blend. This unique blend captures the essence of the Arctic plant world.

MAKE YOUR SKIN GLOW

Air pollution, UV exposure and other harmful environmental influences are a burden on our skin. The hectic urban lifestyle of many city dwellers – like stress at work or not enough sleep – are additional stress factors that can make skin look tired and dull.

Moderate exercise, balanced nutrition and high-quality natural skin care products can help to reduce some of the stress that daily life places on our bodies. At INARI Arctic Beauty we draw our strength and inspiration from the cleanest and most unpolluted natural environment in the world. 

THE BEAUTY OF ARCTIC SKINCARE

The anti-aging mechanism of the active ingredients blend of the INARI Beauty range is based on antioxidant properties of the ingredients used, their ability to combat photoaging, and their collagen and hyaluronic acid synthesis boosting activities, as well as observations in clinical trials. Safety and clinical evidence on sensitive or problematic skin has been reviewed.

One of the main ingredients used is Chaga, a fungus that can be found growing on birch trees only in very cold habitats. While Chaga is a novel ingredient in cosmetics, it is known for antioxidant properties and β-glucans have been demonstrated to deeply moisturize skin and prevent lines and wrinkles.

Polysaccharides extracted from Chaga fungus have found to be effective antioxidants, and their action mechanism has been verified.

THE UNIQUE BLEND CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF THE ARCTIC PLANT WORLD 

For our exclusive Arctic Blend we have selected six effective plant ingredients to help nourish, strengthen and brighten your skin. 

  • Rhodiola Rosea root (also called “ginseng of the North” or “golden root”) contains a high percentage of antioxidant flavonoids and helps to decrease hyperpigmentation 
  • Chaga fungus (Inonotus Obliquus) grows on birch trees and is known as a strong antioxidant thanks to high levels of beta-glucane 
  • Pine (Pinus Sylvestris) bark extract has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help protect skin from UV radiation
  • Cloudberry (Rubus Chamaemorus) fruit extract is a powerhouse of antioxidant vitamin C, omega 3 & 6 acids and beta-carotene (vitamin A) 
  • Lingonberry (Vaccinium Vitis Idaea) seed oil has a high percentage of alpha-linoleic acid and antioxidative vitamin E. The hydrating, firming and wrinkle reducing efficacy of the special Lingonberry LBA50® complex has been proven by clinical tests 
  • Bilberry (Vaccinium Myrtillus) leaf extract contains high levels of polyphenols which help protect skin from free radicals, boost the skin’s microcirculation and have a brightening effect

Risks and challenges

The entire INARI Cosmetics product range will be manufactured in Finland, in a production facility certified according to the highest European manufacturing standards GMP ISO 22716, ISO 9001, Nordic Eco Label and ECOCERT. Our manufacturing partner is an internationally operating contract manufacturer of cosmetics, hygiene and medical products and a trusted partner to natural cosmetics companies. The specifics of the production needs for our beauty range are all defined and set to start the production.

All ingredients contained in the INARI skin care range are 100% natural, with no added chemicals, colorants, or preservatives, and only natural extraction methods are used. Our expert research partner specialized for arctic ingredients is based in Finland and is sharing their expertise for developing our processes and documentation.

In addition, we are supported by leading experts and chemists with outstanding global experience in research and development, security and quality management in organic cosmetics based in Germany. Our next step is to get the development of the INARI beauty range finalized according to security, stability and tolerance testing requirements.

The INARI skin care line is expected to come to market in February 2018. Choosing the right active ingredients and plants, facing the challenges of designing a natural cosmetics product not using any chemicals, developing the formulas and conducting the relevant safety testing do need it's time. With the mentioned risks we are confident in our ability to deliver the product in time. We have the right team and resources in place to meet our deadlines and to get INARI Arctic beauty to the market in time.

We will be keeping you in the loop and inform you of the progress. Join us on our journey!
