Hello! I am Irina Bukur - а founder and creator of cosmetics and the «Irene Bukur» company. In 2008, my second child was born. And this year my first and most beloved moisturizing Hydro-cream for sensitive skin was born, which is always with me in my makeup bag even today.
Why am I creating cosmetics?
First of all, I want to be beautiful, soigne and young as long as possible all my life (nothing to hide here).
Secondly, I have a great respect and admiration for women, especially for our Ukrainians! Girls, you are real heroines! Beautiful, soigne, stylish! Loving and caring wives, loyal and sacrificing mothers and grandmothers! And how many successful, smart, developing girls and women are in our country for whom I want to work, to create!
How did it start?
In 2007, I met up with a ravishing woman, Lydia Gireyevna Moskalenko, Candidate of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Head of Department of Pharmacy and Industrial Technology of Drugs of the National Medical University, which inspired me to create an author's cosmetic brand. It was with her help that the first Irene Bukur products appeared, with which in 2009 we opened our first boutique in Kiev.

I want to say a sincere “thank you” to the team of our Ukrainian developers - technologists, biologists, herbalists, cosmetologists, dermatologists who support my perfectionism in recipes creating and help me to find innovative ingredients and complexes all over the world. We need about 9 beautiful creative stressful months in order to give birth to our new product and to go through all imaginable and unthinkable tests of its effectiveness and safety!
