Birch

We can’t say enough about the healing properties of birch. Its bark, sap and leaves have all been used in traditional treatments of various skin conditions. The sap, mixed with water can even become a drinkable detoxifier. We use water and extract from the birch leaf because of its hydrating, nourishing, softening, calming, toning and purifying effects on skin. (It sounds incredible, but it’s true).

Borage

Borage is a herb which grows wild in Sweden. The seeds of the small blue flowers are used to extract an oil rich in GLA, gamma-linolenic acid, also referred to as an Omega 6 oil. In Sweden borage is called, “Gurkört”, ("gurk" – means “cucumber” and "ört" – means “herb”), because of the cucumber scented plant/herb.
