"If I can't eat it, I won't put it on my face,"
Annemarie Lindner, the founder of Börlind GmbH, once said.

The Annemarie Börlind company has held to this principle for over 50 years, creating the finest skin-friendly cosmetics using primarily organic ingredients. The products are carefully formulated for every skin type and skin problem, with a bouquet of natural ingredients and no animal extracts, petroleum derivatives or silicones.

Our research and development team is constantly searching for new natural ingredients from all over the world that can be used to care for the skin and keep it beautiful. The techniques and technology we use to manufacture our products are cutting-edge, and we are continually refining them to maintain the highest cosmetological standards. This approach is confirmed by the long list of awards we have won.

Our requirements, commitments and quality guidelines are Eco Control certified. As one of our promises to consumers, we refuse to test our products on animals or use genetically modified ingredients. The effectiveness and skin-compatibility of our products are dermatologically tested.

ECO CONTROL         

For many years, more and more certification seals have been appearing on the cosmetics market, all with different standards and criteria. Unfortunately, instead of giving consumers confidence, they often only create confusion.
