Susanne Kaufmann grew up in the Bregenzerwald, an idyllic region nestled in the Austrian Alps and famed for its natural beauty. As a little girl, her grandmother taught her about the beauty and wellness benefits that could be found in the plants that grew in abundance in the area. When it comes to product development Susanne and her team do not believe in making compromises. From the sourcing of organic ingredients to Susanne’s dedication to creating only the highest quality, effective skincare products, their focus is on how they can work in harmony with nature, not against it. The team search out the latest sustainable technologies to ensure every product meets the exacting standards before they reach you. Working with nature also means that each formula has to leave as light a footprint as possible on the environment. This is fundamental. The brand believes that is important to know how and where their products are made and you are always welcome to visit the production site to see how they work. Susanne Kaufmann has taken a truly modern approach to product development, combining the latest scientific research with powerful natural active ingredients. She uses cold-press extraction to obtain the precious plant extracts, a process that ensures each plant oil is obtained without losing any of its original potency. Every product is created by Susanne herself and she still oversees the production process, regularly visiting the factory nearby to ensure the highest standards are always met. Susanne Kaufmann has partnered with Ingo Metzler for the brand’s production and manufacturing needs. Metzler is a pioneer in natural and organic production and his plant is located just 15 minutes away from our Bezau headquarters. Every Monday, Susanne runs a tour of the facility where customers can learn about the sustainable production techniques that are the hallmark of the brand.
