My grandfather was from Vienna, I studied in Salzburg and I go as often as possible to Austria (yes from Munich just a short distance), because I’m a XL-fan of the country and its people, the incredible green nature and of the fantastic Austrian cuisine. Of course, I could take the Austria Eco-Beauty in the beauty darlings of the month, but I find that these great organic cosmetics labels deserve a separate post. Therefore:
My three Eco-Beauty Favorites Made in Austria
Lederhaas Organic Skincare
The Viennese manufacturer Lederhaas uses selected ingredients from organic farming, fair trade ingredients, precious essences and natural oils for pure premium natural cosmetic. Synthetic fragrances, preservatives, colorings and parabens and silicones are for all Lederhaas products an obvious no-go. Just like the fact that everything of the house Lederhass wears the Austrian Organic Seal. My favorite: The Organic Hand & Body Wash salt from the Rock Salt Edition. The mineral-rich All-in-One Cleansing Gel (with the mentioned in passing picturesque Packaging Design) acts moisturizing and soothing. The magic formula? The naturally pure mountain Altausseer core salt in combination with herbs and flowers of rockrose (antibacterial effect) and Camomilehydrolat (helps irritated skin during regeneration).

Nature is a teacher, a designer and a master of design.
Be (…) my Friend
The name itself is so beautiful, that you want to have this product easily. More beautiful is that Be (…) my Friend is a small but very fine cosmetic label from Salzburg, laying on two wonderful things value: the skin of the customer and the environment. The vegan products are therefore free of all creepy ingredients such as mineral oil, aluminum, formaldehyde, silicones, parabens, dyes and softeners. Instead, come to the recyclable packaging only natural ingredients such as mallow, shea butter, elderflowers – all of course in best organic quality. The core idea of Be (…) my Friend is the concentration on a few, but all the better ingredients, which are mixed to great all-in-one products. A hand cream is therefore not only a hand cream, but also functions as a bodylotion and the handsoap is perfect for taking it to the shower as well. Sounds good? Is good! My favorite for the summer: Be Lotion my Friend – calms a wonderfully light but nourishing hand and body milk with shea butter, sunflower oil and grape seed oil and sun-damaged skin.

Sisi and Joe
The natural cosmetics company with the fabulous name (inspired by the romantic love story of the Austrian fairy tale Empress Sissi and her Franz Joseph) is vegan since 2011, “natrue certified” Eco-Beauty Made ago in Austria. The natural cosmetics company based in Graz maintains with its natural cosmetic line Austrian traditions and puts all his knowledge of the power of nature and its wonderful ingredients in fantastic skincare products. The most important ingredient of the line: Edelweiss – the star of the Alps. My favorite: Sisi’s vegan intensive serum that binds moisture with Hyaluron, Sodium and high-quality natural ingredients and ensures that new moisture is produced. Fight the expression lines. Long live an imperial charisma!
Sisi’s intensive Serium, 30ml about € 14,95. Buy here
