About Under Your Skin

The heart and soul behind Under Your Skin is the Swedish mother-daughter duo, Christina and Lovisa Hahn. The two inspiring women who own and operate the beauty brand, create organic, clean, vegan, and natural products. Under Your Skin was born out of the belief that what we put on our skin, eventually ends up under it.

For Christina and Lovisa, it is thus important to recognise that high quality skincare should be without strong and unnecessary chemicals. Many of these chemicals are banned in food due to negative health and environment impact but are however still used in skincare.

Under Your Skin’s beauty products is the better alternative that contributes to the elimination of these doubtful chemicals.

Brand sustainability

“Under Your Skin is where all your beauty products ultimately end up”.

This is exactly how the Swedish company words it. Under Your Skin want to show just how possible it is to create high quality skin care without unnecessary and doubtful chemicals.

 They have created revolution in a bottle and every product is developed with the purest, hand-picked ingredients without parabens, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, petrochemicals and micro plastics.

Under Your Skin use stem cell technology to extract all the goodness from the powerful milk thistle plant to make sure that only pure and highly nourishing ingredients go into the bottle. The result is products that are organic, vegan and cruelty free.

However, it is not only about what’s in the bottle but also what kind of bottle. Under Your Skin currently use recyclable, BPA-free, food-grade plastic bottles. As they say themselves, this is great but it’s not enough. The moment they find a smarter, more planet-kind packaging, then they’ll start using it.

Product Lifecycle

Design

The Design Phase is a crucial part of determining a product’s sustainable capabilities. We’ve chosen to highlight a few genius steps that enable a sustainable product right from the beginning.

    Material & Material Extraction

    The materials used for a certain product and how these materials come to life are of crucial importance to the sustainable capabilities we seek in products.

      Transportation of Materials

      This step relates to the transportation of the raw materials from when they are first obtained (harvested etc.) to the production site. Obviously, the closer to the production site, the better.

        Production

        Obviously, the production of a certain product has an impact on the overall level of sustainability. Luckily, many manufacturers have now taken steps towards more sustainable production methods.

          Packaging

          How a brand chooses to package its products will have a significant influence of the carbon impact from packaging and transportation.

            Distribution

            This step relates to the distribution of products when they have been produced. Obviously, the closer to the brand’s warehouse, the better.

              Usage

              How you choose to use and take care of a product has a bigger impact than you think. Just think about how much longer a shirt lasts if it has been washed in the right way.

                End of life

                At this step, there is no way out and we have to find some way of discarding our product. How we discard a product will significantly influence the opportunity of reusing materials used.
