HET MERK MARIA ÅKERBERG
THE BRAND MARIA ÅKERBERG
This organic skincare line was founded in Sweden.
Dermanord's, (The Company that produces MARIA ÅKERBERG) concept has always been to produce all natural organic products because they believed that ingredients in skincare products affect us as well as the environment. Therefore, all of the raw material is organic, and all of the products are made in Sweden.
Years ago, MARIA ÅKERBERG was in the process of opening a salon and she wanted to find an organic skincare line that was free from mineral oils and synthetic ingredients. It turned out to be easier said than done, so Maria (who is also a chemist) developed a few skincare products herself. This was the start of a complete skincare line, which today, has become one of the most loved organic skincare line in Sweden.
All of MARIA ÅKERBERG's products and packages are environmental friendly, and the plastic can be recycled and used as energy. Dermanord is a part of REPA and SGÅ.
The majority of the packages are produced 5 miles from the the factory in Frillesås, since they always strive to work as locally as possible. Therefore, please recycle all of the empty packages and containers.
COMPLETE LIST OF INGREDIENTS
Since 1999, there is a law regarding uniformity of lists of ingredients within EU. All of the countries in the EU have agreed to have the same Latin /International names on ingredients. MARIA ÅKERBERG's products have added the Swedish translation to make it easier for the consumer to understand the ingredients. You can find the list of ingredients on the product packages.
Since the ingredients come from plants, the look and scents may vary depending on the harvest. Varying weather from year to year determine the look and feel of the plants. E.G. hand cream contains Calendula extract, which gives the cream slight variations due to color each time, the ingredients need to synthetic. The product will change slightly in look and color after the container has been opened.
CONTROL OF RAW MATERIAL AND FINISHED PRODUCTS
All of the ingredients have been inspected at a lab before they are used in the products. The products have then been tested in labs and on human skin.
All of the products are date stamped with month/year if the preservability is less than 3 years.
The date stamp applies to unopened products. All of the products should be used within 6 months after opening. PAO (period after opening) applies to the preservability of an opened product (for products with a preservability of less than 30 months).
PRESERVATIVES AND THICKENERS
Only Xantangum and vegetable oils are used as thickeners in the products. As preservatives, only natural alternatives have been used e.g. minerals and essential oils. Since none of the products contain water, it is bacteria safe when using your fingers to scoop out the balms. Bacteria cannot survive inside the container for a longer period of time.
GETTING USED TO NEW SKINCARE PRODUCTS
Start by introducing one product at a time when switching to new skincare products. It takes approximately 2-8 weeks for the skin to acclimate to new products, and for you to see an improvement.
initially, you may experience worsening of the skin before it gets better; dryness, impurities and blemishes are common. This cleansing is normal and happens because the skin is wearing off the previous products. If you experience lasting discomfort, stop the treatment and contact one of our Estheticians.
