NUORI – Uniquely Formulated Skincare

Alex Rückheim

We came across Danish skincare brand, NUORI, only quite recently. The brand not only offers a range of remarkable face, hand and body care products but has an impressively uncompromising approach to freshness and purity. 

Freshness is at the core of the brand. And to ensure this, NUORI products are freshly blended every 12 weeks. More than that, their products are labelled with two dates, indicating a ‘start-using-by date’ and an ‘expiry date’ to allow sufficient time to fully benefit from the formula. This approach stems from the notion that freshness ensures 100% efficacy, as natural active ingredients are not weakened by time-related breakdown. This understanding is linked to the findings of numerous scientific studies that have proven that essential active agents such as vitamins A, C and E are unstable in cosmetic formulations, loosing their beneficial properties in just a few months.

100% free from: synthetic preservatives, and other additives normally used to push the expiry date of beauty products. 

NUORI’s lightweight Vital Facial Cream, for instance, brings back your skin’s vitality and helps prevent and reduce first signs of aging. Formulated with hyaluronic acid – known for its extremely hydrating action – this cream restores the skin’s natural moisture levels. While botanical squalane, jojoba oil and sweet almond oil nourish the your skin, a complex of shea butter, vitamin C and E offers antioxidant protection.

TANGENT GC – Honest Garment Care

Alex Rückheim

With the celebration of high quality craftsmanship and a passion for fabrics and pattern-making, one could presume a meticulous and honest interest for proper care. According to Tangent GC co-founder, David Samuelsson, we stopped caring somewhere along the way when mass produced, cheap, and oftentimes deficient clothing was introduced. For this reason, Tangent GC set out with the aim to provide a range of superior clothing and shoe care products – not emanating from the chemical industry or flung off conveyor belts – but non-mass-produced, chemical-free products that naturally and effectively give your garments a long life.

SUSANNE KAUFMANN – Natural Body Care

Alex Rückheim

We came across Susanne Kaufmann’s wonderful products not so long ago. Susanne Kaufmann – renowned for their organic, natural and effective body treatments – comes from the Bregenzer Forest, Austria; a beautiful valley in the Austrian Alps where the knowledge of nature’s healing powers are passed down from generation to generation. This said, it is not surprising that Susanne Kaufmann’s skin-specific formulas are based and inspired by the intensive effects of the Alpine flora. 

Beauty, health and comfort are values that strongly drive the brand’s vision to develop powerful results-oriented treatments from precious natural ingredients. The company’s collection of products includes facial, anti-aging and body treatments and baths manufactured and hand-packaged in their own facility amidst the Bregenzer Forest. 

OILS

The Susanne Kaufmann ‘Oil Bath for the Senses’ and ‘Witch Hazel Bath’ are a relaxing experience after a strenuous day. While the former consists of the oils of the ylang-ylang tree, patchouli plant and lavender, the latter is based on active ingredients derived from the medicinal witch-hazel plant that helps the skin regain its balance and regulates its oil content.

FACIAL CARE

Susanne Kaufmann products are created from valuable natural essences, oils and single substances. Here, the level of active plant ingredients is particularly high. While the mild Susanne Kaufmann cleansing milk contains a herbal compound of chamomile, sage and St. John’s wort flowers, the cleansing gel Line M for men contains active ingredient compounds derived from witch-hazel and ribwort. Both products include skin nourishing components that clean and protect your skin.

Alex Rückheim

Aesop Skincare

After reviewing Aesop’s Post-Poo Drops earlier this year, we now took a closer at the brand’s Parsley Seed skincare range. With the aim to create a range of superior-quality products, this range is arguably the result of extensive research and development into the most effective way to deliver vitamins and anti-oxidants to the skin. As the name suggests, each product contains Parsley Seed extract – an anti-oxidant ingredient that has significant protective benefits for your skin. 

The range comprises some exceptionally light and quickly absorbing creams, serums and treatments that moisturise, hydrate, protect and nourish your skin. Starting from £25.
