These are the 3 European skincare brands that should be on your radar.
Germany: Augustinus Bader
Dr. Augustinus Bader is a German doctor who has managed to create a new hydrating cream that isn’t your typical moisturizer. The formula contains antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, and shea butter. It promises to transform your skin texture in 27 days and they suggest cleansing and applying just the cream day and night. The brand has only two products, The Cream, and The Rich Cream. They both contain the same ingredients of shea butter, squalane, and his signature TFC-8, in different concentrations.
Science-backed skincare has been synonymous with Swiss brands for years. The creation of luxury haircare range Kerluxe follows the same idea, with a collection inspired by skincare-type products for your If you’ve got damaged hair (let’s be honest, who doesn’t), Kerluxe’s Leave-In Treatment is a must-try.
Italy: Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella has a wide offering of face, body, and even pet products. The brand’s messaging and packaging has remained the same since its founding in 1200 as a traditional pharmacy in Florence. The range is huge and even includes special water to aid in digestion, but their rose water is most popular. Our favorite? Use it as a toner, post-cleanse, to calm and rebalance your skin. Plus, it smells divine.
