Founded over two centuries ago, Birkenstock has become a pioneer of comfortable footwear and is known for being the inventor of supportive insoles. Now the brand is going a step further with the introduction of a new skincare line, designed to provide hands and feet with an extra dose of pampering.
Birkenstock’s Natural Skin Care line was developed and made entirely in Germany. The vegan products use plant-based active ingredients and have undergone rigorous quality tests. Natural cork is a key ingredient and is the same material used in Birkenstock’s signature insoles. For its new cosmetics products the brand draws on the beneficial properties of cork oak extract, which reduces redness, stimulates collagen production and firms skin. Since cork is a renewable raw material it is also more environmentally friendly and these new products offer a refill system and recyclable packaging, strengthening Birkenstock’s ongoing commitment to sustainability.
The Natural Comfort line is designed for the hands and feet – parts of the body which often need extra care and attention. The natural ingredients in the products help to condition and protect the skin: menthol cools and reduces swelling; avocado moisturises; elderberry increases skin elasticity; and jojoba moisturises and offers anti-ageing properties.
The Moisturizing Foot Balm with avocado nourishes and softens dry feet while the Cooling Foot Cream is designed for tired, swollen feet and ankles. The Nourishing Leg and Foot Oil, containing elderberry, hydrates the skin, leaving it soft. Last but not least, the Moisturizing Hand and Nail Cream provides moisture and regenerates the skin’s protective barrier.
