A balanced skin has a smooth structure and is radiant to look at. It is without dry, flaky spots, irritation, acne or redness. Even if you had no skin issues before, it’s likely something will appear during or after your pregnancy, because of hormones, changing diets, or because your body has more to handle with new priorities. Hence, our task is to support your skin's natural self-regulating process and keep you both happy.
Here are our hand-picked natural superheros, scientifically proven to bring results and contribute to a balanced skin complexion.
CENTELLA ASIATICA EXTRACT
We have chosen wild-grown Centella asiatica (cica) from Madagascar with a higher number of actives, compared to its cultivated alternative. Our extract is a highly purified composition of the most powerful molecules within the plant: asiatic acid, madecassic acid and asiaticoside. It is a real powerhouse to soothe and revitalize your skin and it shows excellent results in stretch mark prevention and recovery.
Ceramides are lipids holding our skin cells together. They support the skin’s outermost layer to stay strong and protect the skin from moisture loss. Especially when the skin barrier is challenged by cold weather or sun. We selected a patented, high-performance natural complex made of wheat grain (gluten-free) for a moisturized, visibly refined skin with additional pore tightening effect and instant hydration.
BALLOON VINE EXTRACT
Used in homeopathy for itchy skin and skin discomfort, this oily extract is effective against dryness and moisture loss. In combination with other multi-active plant extracts and oils, like blackcurrant oil, rich in both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, it is extremely powerful to stop inflammatory processes. It helps regenerate the skin barrier and soothe the skin back into its balance.
Find it with blackcurrant oil in our Replenishing Face Moisturizer.
It is an active plant extract isolated from German chamomile and has anti-inflammatory and skin-soothing effects. This gentle and calming ingredient is preferred to chamomile because the skin tolerates it better. Studies suggest it has an antioxidant effect, neutralizing free radicals, making it very beneficial in sunscreens.
Find it in our Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30.
For over 2000 years, magnolia extract has been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Our bark extract is composed of the pharmacologically active Honokiol and Magnolol. When added to the water phase, together they have a strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effect. And when added to lipids, like in our facial cleanser, they have an antioxidant effect, even higher than Vitamin E.

Skin imperfections are caused by a disturbance of our protective microflora, composed of microorganisms covering the skin. We selected a novel and scientifically proven polyfructose from chicory root for balancing this protective layer. It provides a food supplement for beneficial microbiota, but cannot be metabolized by harmful ones. This balances the good and the bad, and makes our skin more resistant.

Discovered in a salt lake in the Egyptian desert, Ectoin is a self-defense and survival substance of extremophilic microorganisms. These are one of the oldest forms of life on Earth that live under extreme conditions: intense UV radiation, heat and dryness. Our natural Ectoin, manufactured in biotechnological fermentation, supports skin barrier repair, skin hydration and reduces wrinkles and fine lines.
ORGANIC BAOBAB OIL
Despite the common belief that all oils are effective to protect from transepidermal water loss (TEWL), this is proven only for a few, and baobab oil is one of those. Extracted from the seeds of the “tree of life”, this oil is well-balanced, lightweight, fast absorbing, and occlusive without causing acne. It is beneficial for any skin type, and excellent for an impaired skin barrier, rough or excessively dry skin.
ORGANIC MACADAMIA NUT OIL
Due to its unique, close-to-sebum fatty acid composition, macadamia oil has a great affinity with human skin and is highly beneficial for any skin type. It contains palmitoleic acid, an often overlooked omega-7 fatty acid, which is vital for your skin. Our macadamia oil comes from small-scale farming in Kenya, harvested from an organic mixed culture.
Find it in our Pampering Face Cleanser.
ZINC PCA (+NIACINAMIDE)
Zinc PCA is a salt of zinc. The zinc part balances sebum secretion, which is often overproduced when testosterone goes up, causing more oily skin and closed comedones. The L-PCA part of this synergistic combo is a natural moisturizing factor (NMF) supporting skin hydration. Zinc PCA together with Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) effectively works against skin impurities.
Find it with Niacinamide in our Replenishing Face Moisturizer.
+1 VANILLA EXTRACT
There is a theory that vanilla’s popularity lies in reminding us of mother’s milk, evoking warmth and emotional balance. It is not only everybody’s darling but also one of the least sensitizing among natural scents. Depending on the origin the accents can go from elegant flowery to deep balsamic. We went through a dozen options till we found that mild and creamy natural vanilla, giving an elegant touch to our products, but without upsetting your and your baby's tender skin and sensitive nose.
