Nordic Cotton Grass

Nordic Cotton grows in extreme circumstances of Nordic nature. It moisturizes and helps to nourish the skin gently.

Nordic Cotton extract is obtained from the flowers and stems of the cottons edge.

To survive in tough conditions, this plant synthesizes active ingredients such as sugars, polyphenols and minerals, which protect the plant and boost its resistance to the elements. Sugars moisturize, polyphenols protect and minerals nourish the skin and are essential for skin-wellbeing. As a plant, Nordic Cotton is already very soft and on the other hand very strong and resilient.

Nordic Pine Bark

The thick bark of the pine tree yields a powerful skincare ingredient. Made potent by the Arctic light cycle and harsh climate, Nordic Pine Bark is rich in compounds that have a strong Antioxidant effect, taking care of and restoring skin. Experience this Arctic reawakening in our nurturing products.

Nordic Pine Bark

Growing in the depths of the wild Finnish forests, the pine tree’s bark is supremely resilient. In Nordic countries bark was traditionally ground up to make bread, which has recently been found to have cholesterol-fighting properties. The benefits of bark to skin are equally exciting.

Our Nordic Pine Bark extract is rich in OPCs, powerful polyphenols that help to nurture skin, acting as a natural guard to keep it looking healthy and fresh.

We only use freshly crushed bark from young pine trees and our extract is produced as a by-product in the paper and wood industry, from bark that otherwise would be waste material. In other words, it’s a sustainably sourced ingredient.

Nordic Birch Sap

Since ancient times, Finnish birch trees have been tapped for their exquisite Sap. Rich in minerals and Amino Acids, Birch Sap gently nourishes and hydrates parched skin that’s been dried out by busy, modern living. Experience the riches of a time-honored tradition in our moisturizing skincare products.

Nordic Birch Sap

Birch Sap has been used in Finnish folk remedies for centuries, treating everything from skin diseases to rheumatism. Drilling a hole in the tree’s trunk allows it to flow out, and is the enduring method of collection. It must be harvested in early spring before any green leaves appear, and the narrow time frame adds an elusive element to this precious ingredient.

From sap to leaves, the whole birch tree was traditionally used in skin remedies for its natural healing and nourishing qualities. Our Birch Sap contains hydrating sugars, natural humectants that keep moisture locked in and your skin looking energized and fresh. Birch Sap is especially good for recharging dry skin, leaving it toned, smoother and visible younger-looking.

As with all our Nordic ingredients, sustainability is at the heart of what we do. Current practice is not to tap a tree for more than two consecutive years, so it can rest. This makes tapping harmless to the tree, and enables it to continue to produce Sap that is transparent in color. Just like it’s supposed to be. Have a look at our Lumene products, where the Birch Sap works its magic in deeply hydrating moisturizers and masks.
