Natural, organic and chemical free skin care made on the west coast of Sweden. Enjoy L:A Bruket beard oil, body lotion, hand & body wash, diffusers, balms, bath salts, and candles at UStudio. Experience their iconic coriander scent.
To quote L:A Bruket founders Mats Johansson and Monica Kylén; “In Sweden, nature isn’t something you visit. It comes to you whenever you step outside. Sun, wind, rock and ice; salt, sand, mud and water. Elements in a tangle of continuous change. The harsh coastal conditions can weather our skin and hair, but rather than hiding from nature, we turn to it for inspiration and answers.”
Backed by this well-established natural skincare knowledge, they have been developing organic formulas that protect and nurture the skin and hair since 2008. They apply a modern mindset to age-old sea therapy practices, such as seaweed bathing, to create innovative contemporary treatments that use sustainably sourced ingredients.
L:A Bruket never compromise when it comes to ingredient purity, because they know that our skin and hair respond to natural molecules most effectively. Embracing the years of spa culture in their home town, they always look for the purest natural ingredients. The resulting products are defined by function and quality – made to be resilient in an unforgiving climate so that they can meet the demands of any situation, even the power of a storm on the Swedish coast!
L:A Bruket products gradually train your skin and hair to perform better in the long-term. Rather than a quick temporary fix, these are formulas designed to fit into a daily self-care routine and form part of a healthy lifestyle for years to come.
Neighbourhood Botanicals is a formulator-led independent brand, making natural skincare, sustainable by design.
All their products are completely from the mind and hands of the founder Micaela, formulated in their lab in Leyton, east London.
Neighbourhood Botanicals is a small company, running as a true passion project, to release intelligent, creative formulations in cool bottles you want to display on your shelf, at a fair price. This differs from the common practice in skincare brands of buying a formula off-the-shelf from a manufacturer and designing some flashy packaging to put it in. A lot of skincare brands are just marketing brands!
All their formulas are made with natural ingredients and use cold-pressed plant oils wherever possible. As a small and nimble company, they put sustainability at the core of all their decisions. Neighbourhood Botanicals are as environmentally responsible and ethical as possible within their limited framework. Ethics, ingredients and sustainability have been a no-brainer since this brand began in 2016.
