As you might be aware one of the Skintology Stockholm founders, Maria Lund, is a Cosmetic Scientist with over 10 years of experience in the beauty industry. Her co-founder, Lill Andersen, is a skin therapist with nearly 10 years in her field working with several brands as well as having her own salon. Together, Skintology Stockholm plans to revolutionise the skincare industry with knowledge, expertise and products.
So what really is a Cosmetic Scientist?
If you have been following us for a while you have heard the title “Cosmetic Scientist” being mentioned on several occasions. So, what is a Cosmetic Scientist? Let us tell you!
Maria is a certified Cosmetic Scientist. To become one, she studied in London for 4 years and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Cosmetic Science. Simply explained this means she is a product developer specialised within the cosmetics industry.
But being a Cosmetic Scientist means a lot more than just developing a product concept. It means that Maria can:
- Continue the product through all stages up until launch
- Write the formula
- Source ingredients
- Make lab prototypes
- Ensure product stability throughout its lifecycle
- Substantiate claims
- Comply with regulations
All this is normally outsourced to the factory, whereas Skintology Stockholm has it all in-house. We hand over finished recipes to the factory.
Our biggest advantage is that:
- We don’t have to wait for a factory to send samples, change after feedback, receive new samples etc. which is a very timely process
- By having our own development lab, the ability to quickly turn around new samples, changing even the smallest little detail to make the best possible products that you will love.
What does a Skin Therapist bring to the equation?
Having Lill as a Skin Therapist on hand during the development process is invaluable to Skintology Stockholm for us to:
- Develop the concept and key features.
- Plan the product range set up.
- Testing the prototypes.
- Deciding which prototypes go to the next stage.
All while thinking from a skin perspective.
What we promise
We love being creative, and thanks to the close and flexible collaboration between our founders, they have the ability to think outside the box. Together they are the perfect synchronicity between beauty and science, delivering high-quality products with great results.
Our promise to you:
- High-quality skincare packaged in a beautiful Scandinavian design.
- Simple & innovative formulas based on research.
- No short cuts, never compromising on the result.
Our future vision
Our vision is to expand our portfolio of products to several different ranges aimed at solving all sorts of different skin problems. Making it possible to completely tailor your skincare to your current needs and cherry-pick from our different ranges to reach a specific result.
We develop our products with the aim to reach the desired result of solving different skin problems. For example, our Thirst Quench range is for anyone that wants to boost their skin with tons of hydration. Fresh Start (so far only one product, but this will expand, just like Thirst Quench) will work on evening out skin texture.
Currently, we are working on expanding our portfolio with everyday essentials to use as a baseline in your skincare routine, and we are so excited to soon be able to show you the first one to be launched later this year!
