Is it possible to transfer the legendary comfort of our footbed to a line of cosmetics? Yes, it is! BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL CARE represents health, outstanding quality and a conscious lifestyle. While conventional cosmetics usually contain irritating or harmful substances, select ingredients and unique combinations of active substances with proven benefits form the basis of this innovative and certified care system.
All BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL CARE products in the closely coordinated six care lines are certified natural cosmetics that are made in Germany. They have been certified in accordance with the COSMOS NATURAL standard by BDIH and are subject to the strictest testing criteria. All of these products protect, maintain and regenerate your skin without any chemicals – just the pure power of nature. Every day. From head to toe.
CORK – THE MAIN INGREDIENT
Cork oak extract is at the heart of BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL CARE. As with the original BIRKENSTOCK shoe footbed, it is the principal raw material of the product range. The cork used in all our products is obtained from the cortex layer of the cork oak tree. Cork is a renewable raw material. No trees have to be felled to extract it. After careful harvesting the cork layer renews itself. The tree is not damaged at all.
While BIRKENSTOCK has been working with cork for more than 240 years, cosmetic scientists discovered the highly effective anti-aging effect of cork extract. An integral element present in cork is suberin, which gives cork a special elasticity and has a proven lifting effect in BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL CARE products. The formula developed on the basis of these research results contains carefully selected natural ingredients such as arctic moss, argan oil, baobab, moringa, aloe vera, jojoba, babassu, elderberry and botanical hyaluron.
