Behind the brand:
Swedish skin care brand, Estelle & Thild was founded in 2007 by Pernilla Rönnberg after working for a major Nordic cosmetics company and becoming disillusioned by the organic choices on the market. Wishing her children could grow up with clean and sustainable alternatives without having to sacrifice a sense of luxury or fine ingredients, she developed the innovative, certified organic skin care product line. It’s now available in around 1300 stores, including Selfridges in London and Sephora worldwide as well as Net-a-porter online.
Why we love it…
Estelle & Thild is a company with a conscience, but the packaging and design don’t scream earthy eco-warrior. The range of affordable luxuries which includes lip balms, body scrubs and hand lotions look chic enough to grace the best bathroom shelves. Free from all the pesticides and toxic residues we know to steer clear of, the cornucopia of ingredients sound like an apothecarist’s dream – black elderflower, pink pomelo and sweet apricot nectar, all packed with skin-benefitting antioxidants. Of course, it has a cult following of beauty bloggers and Hollywood A-Listers such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Penelope Cruz, but we’re fans because it’s simply a fantastic product
