sprout-skincare-mcmc-perfum-fragranceTruly all-natural and sustainable skincare is what New York-based Adina Grigore wanted to create when even the most natural skincare products gave her a bad reaction. After attending nutrition school and learning how to cook slow food, the same principles were applied to skincare and Sprout was born. All of Sprout's ingredients are either certified organic, Fair Trade, or sourced from small, family farms. The Sprout Body Scrub contains a mix of coarse organic demerara sugar and organic shredded coconut for exfoliation with some moisturizing organic coconut oil. It looks so delicious, be careful not to mistake it as dessert! (approx. €18)

Let your beauty lover discover the rhythm and power of the moon with the German skincare brand Just Pure cosmetics which uses a unique production method based on moon phases. Mountain Flower Honey Body Milk, 500ml, €69.-

MCMC Fragrances

After studying perfumery and aromatherapy founder Anne McClain created her own beauty world and fragrances crafted in small batches and bottled by hand in her own studio. MCMC Hunter scented candles, contains a mix of organic Bourbon vanilla and a blend of soy, vegetable and beeswax, with a 100% cotton wick, hand-poured in New York. Approx. €40
