Ingredients

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.

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 pine bark extract is rich in OPCs, powerful polyphenols that help to nurture skin, acting as 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 side stream product in the paper and wood industry, from bark that otherwise would be waste material. In other words, it’s a sustainably sourced ingredient.

Birchsap

Since ancient times, Finnish birch trees have been tapped for their exquisite sap. Rich in minerals and free amino acids, birch sap gently nourishes and hydrates parched skin that’s been dried out by busy lives and modern living. Experience the riches of a time-honored tradition in our moisturizing skincareproducts.

Birchsap

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 timeframe 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.

Arctic Lingonberry

Invaluable to generations of Nordic people for its versatility, the lingonberry is bursting with timeless riches. Laden with vitamin E and natural antioxidants, it revitalizes and restores, giving toned, younger-looking skin. The perfect ingredient for our invigorating and stimulating products.

Arctic Lingonberry

In Finland, you’ll spot the lingonberry in peaty forests, growing close to the ground on evergreen shrubs. Used for aeons intraditional jams and desserts, it’s steeped in precious cultural heritage. Having survived centuries in the unforgiving Arctic climate, these berries are strikingly potent and resilient. Ripe from late August until the end of September, there’s a narrow timeframe to harvest the lingonberry and capture its potential.

The lingonberry’s high concentration of vitamin E comforts skin, while plant sterols help maintain health. Fatty acids are abundant in our lingonberry seed oil and they work to reduce moisture loss, giving you hydrated, healthier-looking skin. Perhaps the berry’s most powerful benefit comes from the antioxidant quercetin, which enriches and nurtures skin, defying time to maintain a toned appearance. Our lingonberry extract is expertly refined in the lab so it’s 40 times richer in quercetin than the berry itself. Thisimproves its performance and is at the heart of what we do: appreciating the power of the Arctic and skillfully enhancing what’s already there.

Experience the beautiful benefits of the lingonberry across our Lumene products, and take back your skin with the help of the Arctic.
