“Almost every third Pole struggles with skin diseases. Our goal is to provide the most effective active ingredients that will support skin regeneration from the inside, ensuring their better absorption compared to external care,”

Emilia Dąbrowska, co-founder of Carein, explains.
  • In its first round of funding, the project received capital support from CofounderZone and several business angels. It is a Warsaw-based generalist fund that unites a group of private investors working in a wide range of industries. Lately, the fund also supported a Polish healthtech company Foodsi and an e-commerce startup fyrtel.market.
  • The fresh funds will allow Carein to develop its unique product recipes. It will also help with the launch of the production and sale of the first line of supplements.
