We make minimalist and no-nonsense skincare for sensitive and problem skin
This means just a few simple and combinable products with a minimum of ingredients that care for sensitive and problem skin gently and effectively.
All products are made without added fragrance or any fragrance at all, with vegan and plant-based ingredients, and are developed in our own Helsinki lab and tested by our sensitive and problem skinned owners, founder and CEO Kristina and chemist Jaana.
We manufacture all our products in Finland. The entire Laponie range bears the Finnish Allergy-, Skin- and Asthma Federation's Allergy-label.
MEET OUR PROBLEM-SKINNED FOUNDER KRISTINA
"Finding skincare for my extremely sensitive and reactive skin was always a headache. With a wide range of skin issues, which would often change from day to day, few products or treatments worked long term. So I got fed up, read everything I could find on skincare and cosmetic chemistry, and started making and using my own simple products. And gradually, my skin got better. Not flawless, but healthy, which I’ve come to appreciate much more. Now, in our own lab, our chemist Jaana and I create products I always wanted but could never find. I hope they work for you, too."
Kristina, CEO and founder of Laponie of Scandinavia
THE LAPONIE LAB
All Laponie of Scandinavia products are developed in our own lab outside our native Helsinki. Our lab is run by our head of R&D, cosmetic chemist Jaana, who has a cosmetic science degree from University of the Arts London as well as solid and wide formulation expertise. Our founder Kristina also works in the lab with Jaana.
Having an in-house lab allows us to manage the entire R&D process from the very beginning. We source and test new raw materials ourselves and make as many versions of a product as we want and need, until the product is ready. Everything Jaana and Kristina make in the lab, they test on themselves, to make sure our products really work for sensitive and problem skin.
All our products are manufactured in Finland, at our partner factories.
