11Nov Introducing: Šfarìa

Designed in an exclusive collaboration with Fondazione Cortina 2021, the organizer of the Alpine World Ski Championships, follow the trail of Šfarìa to the undisputed queen of the dolomites: Cortina d’Ampezzo. Home to striking panoramas, nature reserves and national parks the unique landmark has become renowned as a cradle of great sporting traditions. Listed among the World UNESCO Heritage Sites since 2009, the region is a true emblem of passion, emotion, beauty and elegance.

Šfarìa, the new range by Acca Kappa is inspired by this breath-taking landscape. Taken from Ladin-Ampezzan, the native language of Cortina d'Ampezzo, Šfarìa translates to thin, powdery snow. Descending from a lead-grey sky, Šfarìa perfectly captures the moment these cold grains of snow first blend with the balsamic, resin like hints of Pine, Fir and with the aromatic notes of Artemisia. Deeply nourishing the range is the perfect pick for protecting hands and lips this winter.  To find out more, see below as we explore the key ingredients behind Šfarìa.
