Why We Do It

Poko is an Irish skincare brand with a focus on supporting skin from the inside-out. Founded in 2019 by Justine O'Hanlon, Poko was born out of her own struggle with PCOS, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and the impact it had on her skin. PCOS is a hormonal condition that affects 1 in 5 women in Ireland, and 1 in 10 globally.

Today, Poko offers a range of 12 skincare products and 4 supplements that target conditions like acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and more by supporting the crucial link between our hormones, gut, and skin.

“I tried everything my doctor gave me, convincing myself the next cream would be the one, which was never the case. The contraceptive pill helped me manage my symptoms for a long time, but I didn’t want to use this forever and when I came off it, my acne flared up again.”

As a natural skincare brand, we are committed to providing vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and sustainably sourced products. Our mission is to enhance overall health and wellness by recognizing the vital role that hormones and gut health play in our overall well-being. We believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and beautiful in their own skin, and we're committed to helping people achieve that through our products.

“Being diagnosed with PCOS really helped me to look at my skin in a very different way. I have this condition which isn’t going away, so I tackle it differently and I try my best to live a healthy lifestyle. When I do get breakouts, often around my time of the month or if I’m dealing with heavy stress, I now feel confident that I can manage it.”

Healthy Skin, Happy Hormones

At Poko, we are firm believers that healthy and radiant skin starts from within. We understand that the key to achieving optimal skin health is by combining effective skincare with targeted supplement support, to work in synergy with each other.

Our supplements are carefully formulated with natural ingredients such as biotin, vitamin C, and collagen-promoting ingredients like Irish Sea Moss. These scientifically proven ingredients work together to improve skin health from the inside out.

Our skincare products are also thoughtfully crafted with natural ingredients like sea buckthorn, fig extract, and hemp that nourish and protect the skin, helping to restore a healthy, youthful glow.

Our Mission & Values

At Poko, our mission is to empower you with the confidence to feel your best. We understand that skincare concerns can have a significant impact on your self-esteem and overall well-being. That's why we're committed to providing honest and effective skincare solutions for a variety of skin concerns, including hormonal cystic acne, hyperpigmentation, eczema, psoriasis, dullness, and dehydration. Our goal is to offer a range of products that cater to each part of your skincare routine, tailored to your individual skin type.

We believe that everyone deserves to feel confident in their own skin, and we're here to help you achieve just that.

Our Ingredients

At Poko, we believe in the power of natural ingredients to nourish and protect the skin from within. Our skincare products contain a range of beneficial ingredients such as AHAs, niacinamide, glycerin, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, azelaic acid, avocado, witch hazel, and hemp. These ingredients work together to provide a range of benefits, such as hydrating and plumping the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, brightening and evening out skin tone, and calming inflammation.

Our supplements also contain a range of essential vitamins and minerals, including myo-inositol, folic acid, selenium, magnesium, Irish sea moss, sage, inulin, and niacin. These ingredients are carefully selected to support overall skin health and promote a healthy, balanced complexion. From reducing inflammation and oxidative stress to supporting collagen production and improving skin elasticity, our supplements work in synergy with our skincare products to provide optimal results.
