In the awards autumn series of blog posts, we get to know the brands and people behind the nominee products of the Nordic Natural Beauty Awards 2021. In this post, we are proud to share more about the Finnish skincare brand Forest Sap, as told by the founder of the brand:
“We at Forest Sap are local artisan producers of skincare products who use sustainable, environment-friendly, plant-based ingredients. Our aim is to use as many locally sourced ingredients as we can and endeavor to make high-quality natural cosmetics. We do not use artificial fragrances or chemicals, fillers, or anything which does not add true value to the product and in the end to our customer’s health and well-being. We do this while keeping our focus on the conservation of nature and sustainability.
The company name Forest Sap originated from our awe of nature and the Finnish forests. We can say that our products contain the sap or the life force of the trees and forests, like the wild berry oils and plant butter delivered to our customers in the unique Miron glass jars.
Our faith lies in the healing properties of nature and we believe that if nature is given a chance it can do wonders for our skin, health, and wellbeing. Choosing natural products can have a big impact on the conservation of nature by putting more focus on plantation and conservation of trees and plants which provide us with the natural ingredients. This in turn can have a positive effect on the whole supply chain, thus giving strong incentives to communities around the world to grow and care for the precious trees and forests.
Many of our ingredients are wildcrafted and come from the trees and bushes grown in forests around the world. Thus valuing and protecting the ecosystems which provide us with these valuable herbs, oils, plant butter, and flowers has to be our top priority. Of course, nature gives us way more than that, and we are thankful and indebted to nature!
All of our efforts are aimed at this. We believe in minimum waste in packaging and use recyclable jars to this effect.
