Natural Cosmetics from Munich
At the sisterMAG-office we are often allowed to test out various beauty products, so it only makes sense to ask our team: »What do you use at home?« In this issue: our social media and content manager Norell.
I used to use the exact same series of skincare products from the drugstore for the longest time – until I found that they really weren’t doing my skin any good anymore. Next to impurities, my skin now kept swinging between being incredibly dry and super oily. By chance, I found the online shop of NKM – Naturkosmetik München and immediately loved the company for the transparent values they represent. They use regional herbs and cold-pressed local oils for their products and are vegan, cruelty free and offset their emissions. At NKM, you can buy products as a DIY-set to mix up at home or go for the ready-mixed option. I chose the ready-made variety of their »impure skin-routine.
Four months later, I can definitely say that I’m a huge fan of the three products included in the range. For my skin and the feeling the skincare leaves, it was a bit of a switch to go from oil-free products to moisturising oils but I have seen such a clear improvement in my skin. I think especially the mild cleanser has helped bring my natural skin barrier back into balance.
This cleansing oil uses sunflower oil and squalane. It doesn’t only remove makeup but also cleanses gently while leaving the skin’s protective barrier intact and reducing impurities and inflammation from a variety of causes.
This toner contains niacinamide and zinc next to various natural extracts taken from trees and flowers of the Black Forest. It reduces impurities and inflammation and evens out the skin tone. After spraying it on, you leave the toner to sit for around 30 seconds and remove it with a cotton pad before spraying on another layer as the foundation for the deeply moisturising intensive oil.
For the intensive oil, the ingredients range from wild roses from the island of Sylt to sea buckthorn from the Baltic coastline, plants from the vineyards of the region of Pfalz and elderflower from the mountains of the foothills of the Alps. It doesn’t only deeply moisturise the skin but also supports the anti-impurity and anti-inflammatory properties of the other two products. Simply massage it into moist skin after using the antimicrobial toner.
