True organic of Sweden

True organic of Sweden

Organic and natural skincare products made in Sweden in sustainable packaging. True Organic of Sweden is a multi award winning brand for people who want effective skincare that is kind to the skin and the planet.

 

When my son was born I had just finished a degree in science of natural health. My son had diaper rash and I had sore breasts from breastfeeding. I searched for any ointment relief, even the organic certified ones had ingredients that I would never use on my son. They could have as little as 5 percent organic ingredients and the rest could be anything. How can this be?

I was living in Switzerland at that time, and when I moved back to Sweden, my home country a few years later, I started looking around for how to actually produce skin care. I found a wonderful organic and natural skin care guru.  Together we created the first product:  All you need is me balm. Two weeks after launch, All you need is me balm won its first award of many. It’s 100% natural and 95% organic in a compostable tube made of sugarcane. I was very happy and content with my accomplishment of such a unique, pure and effective balm but then people started to ask me “What is your next product “? Next product ?! I asked. After this I followed by  producing my own wish list of my dream skincare products. True organic of Sweden skincare brand was born.  True organic of Sweden skincare products are with as few ingredients as possible, as high in organic content as possible and ingredients that you recognize, at the same time very effective products that bring results. We have 7 products today and developing more.Our customers are loyal, we have a 60% return rate. http://trueorganicofsweden.com

Now we sell all over the world, to distributors, retailers and directly to consumers.

 

Starting as a one person company has been a challenge. Both financially and time wise. I have never wanted to employ lots of people but instead used freelancers and distributors responsible for their areas. The distributors have bought in bulk, have exclusive rights to their country but in return also been responsible for getting the products into retailers and conduct marketing, sales and PR. Some distributors have been better than others but as a small unknown brand it’s even difficult to get a distributor to look at your products. So if the distributors ignore their obligations there’s not much you can do other than remove the brand from them but then you might not fin anyone else willing to take your brand in that market.

 

Another challenge has been in the sourcing of ingredients and creating products that are efficient, as high in organic ingredients as possible, 100% natural using only planet friendly ingredients in sustainable packaging. Not all ingredients can be found grown organically. Most products have water and water can never be organic. This brings the organic level down. Organic produce is grown without synthetic fertilizers, genetic engineering, irradiation or pesticides. The plants need to grow at a certain distance from any farm that is not organic so the bees cannot fly in between. Our mission statement is  to create top quality skincare products with the highest levels of organic ingredients. We are committed to protect the planet, its resources and all those who populate it.

 

The skincare business is big and competition is fierce but the more of us organic and natural skincare producer there are, the better it is for our environment.If natural, organic products in sustainable packaging become the norm, the better it is for all of us, our children and the planet.

 

Looking towards future opportunities there is a very positive awareness that there is no planet B and everyone needs to do their bit.

 

With so many natural disasters around the world it’s difficult for even the most climate change deniers to ignore facts. People are looking for ways to do their bit to help our planet. More are turning to organic and natural products. We are becoming aware of sustainable packaging and getting upset when an item is packaged in far more plastic than needed. Luckily we see that innovation is buzzing and sustainable solutions are presented in every field.

 

With the pandemic we had to rethink like everyone else and concentrate our efforts more to the online business instead of retail stores. Our distributors who had mainly retail stores were suffering while the ones with online businesses were thriving. http://trueorganicofsweden.com

 

A business is a living thing and one needs to nurture it and be flexible because change is constant. Wether it’s a pandemic, war or inflation. Being a small business it may be easier to make a quick change. We for example had Rosewood essential oil in our deodorant Undercover agent. I found out that rosewood is endangered so we could quickly change to ho leaf essential oil instead with a similar scent.

 

Talking about being flexible and change, I have decided to take on a partner in the business. It’s one of our distributors who has more economical muscle and is an established skincare distributor. Together we will be able to create new products faster and more cost effective. If you take on a partner it’s important that you have the same vision and values. For me it’s not an unknown partner, I know and have worked with this company for several years.

 

The advice I can give anyone wanting to start a business is just do. You can have market research, plans and preparations for years but I say just start. Take a first step and then the next one. I have to say, everything takes much longer than you think and more expensive than you thought.

If you go ahead, do something you are passionate and interested in, feel the excitement and have fun! That’s what I always have said, I will do it as long as it’s fun

What to do about dry skin

When temperatures are going down and the weather getting cooler it sucks moisture from our skin. Leaving the skin dry and itchy. This is the time when it becomes important to counteract with a good quality organic body lotion. Body lotions add a coating to the skin to prevent water evaporating.

Body buddy lotion

Why did we add oat kernel oil to our Body buddy lotion? It can provide great relief for those suffering from dry, itchy skin. It has anti-fungal properties that help soothe skin. It boosts moisture levels and calms inflammation. It creates a skin barrier that prevents moisture loss. Oat kernel oil acts as a natural skin cleanser, removing dirt and oil while it fights dull skin. Body buddy lotion, its good to have a buddy like this 😉

Prepare your skin for summer

Summer is around the corner! This is the right time to start preparing your skin by building up moisture levels for the forth coming exposure towards summer sun. The benefit of starting early is that all new skincells will have optimum levels of moist, elasticity. And by so, your sun tan will last much longer and your skin will not get dryed out as fast, when exposed towards sun light, not over exposed. We highly recommend our body moisturizer, Boddy Buddy. Rich as a body butter but still fluid enough to pass as a lotion. Every ingredient carefully picked to obtain deeply moisturized skin boosted with all botanical components that the skin benefits from, without compromising our planet. Boddy Buddy. 💚💚💚

Bergamot benefits for skin

Why do we add bergamot essential oil to many of our products? Besides that it has a heavenly scent, bergamot oil is used for its soothing effect on skin. It has
antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Bergamot oil can also help
with stress reduction. Inhaling the refreshing and fruity scent has been found to reduce anxiety, depression and fatigue by signaling to your brain to release the happy hormones, 😃serotonin and dopamine. Bergamot stimulates cell renewal and promotes healthy, toned skin.
What’s not to love? 😊

All you need is me for your muscles

Almost everyone has had sore and aching muscles at some time. It’s then easy to reach for the anti-inflammatory warming ointments that are marketed everywhere. They promise to relieve pain. But did you know that some of them contain the poisonous substance Diclofenac. Diclofenac causes a serious threat to fish, aquatic organisms, plants, and mammals. It’s also difficult to break down in wastewater treatment plants so there’s a risk it ends up polluting our waterways. The Swedish medical products agency (Läkemedelsverket) are proposing a ban on these and other products that harm the environment in retail outlets except pharmacies. In my opinion there should be a ban on products that harm the environment everywhere. Check the ingredients in your ointments or tablets and try to avoid using one that contains Diclofenac. All the ingredients in All you need is me balm are anti-inflammatory. 100% of the ingredients are natural and 95% organic so it won’t damage the environment plus it comes in a sustainable tube made out of sugarcane. . Its lovely and soothing on tired, tight muscles, so why not try it next time? Even better if you can convince someone to give you a nice massage ;)
