'I am a holistic lifestyle enthusiast, with a big passion for plants and I also have super sensitive dry-ish skin, that's why I initially started to create a selection of plant based skin care products, without any animal by-products, that encourages the skin to perform at its best.
In June 2012 I gathered all my courage and launched my independently certified skin care company Gerlinde Naturals, sharing not just my vegan skin care with the world but also my expertise and love for a more natural, gentle and healthy lifestyle.
With my many years of practical experience in the skin care industry I have created this award winning range that pampers you with pure earth-derived botanical ingredients, developed for sensitive skin and enhanced with some amazing pro-ageing ingredients.
My passion for nature and ethical values fuels my formulations and I love the process of blending vegan ingredients into fabulous natural products. I work from my UK based studio where I also dispense and wrap my products in attractive, eco-friendly and sustainable packaging.
I am looking forward to welcoming you to the Gerlinde Naturals family
MADE BY HAND ON THE DAY OF YOUR ORDER
As there are so many precious natural, active extracts and botanicals involved in my formulations, it's vital to keep them in their best, freshest condition and to process them as soon as they arrive at the premises. As a small business I have the big advantage of being able to do just that. I am also more flexible and can react faster to market demands, mixing every product freshly on order without the need to re-configure whole production lines, like big cosmetic companies would have to.
I believe strongly that every customer deserves to receive their natural and vegan product as pure and ‘active’ as possible. I promise, you won’t be able to receive a skin care product fresher than this!
'Your products have rejuvenated my dry parched face! I love how they give moisture and needed nutrients with such wonderful pure ingredients. My skin just soaks them up. So glad I found you through Elle Leary. Congratulations on 10 years. As a small business owner myself I know what a wonderful accomplishment that is. Thank you again. ' claire o., USA
ALSO AVAILABLE FRAGRANCE FREE
Most of my products contain a mixture of plant based essential oils (aromatherapy oils like neroli, frankincense, rose, geranium, etc.) which aids the effectiveness. Essential oils when mixed with the required knowledge, also evoke a sense of well-being and smell delicious.
Nevertheless some of my customers have hyper sensitive skin or do not like any kind of scent in their products, so I offer essential oil (fragrance) free versions of every product in my skin care range.
If you would like to know the exact ingredients of my products, you will find them listed on every single product page, including the botanical and full English name.
100% VEGAN - CRUELTY FREE
I strongly support animal welfare and therefore don't use ingredients from animal sources (beeswax, lactic acid, retinol, lanolin, etc.). I also regularly support the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.
eco friendly - sustainable - recyclable
I use recyclable glass jars and bottles and beautiful recyclable, re-usable, jute/cotton bags from British companies,. The outer (postal) packaging is also recyclable and I am re-using my suppliers packaging/cushioning materials when posting products to you.
I CAN REASSURE YOU THAT YOU ARE GETTING THE BEST QUALITY BECAUSE ...
every single product is also stability and microbiologically tested and certified by a cosmetic chemist with a Cosmetic Product Safety Report which conforms to EU Cosmetic Regulations 1223/2009 (see more information at the end of this page *)
CAREFULLY SOURCED, PUREST PLANT BASED INGREDIENTS
I very carefully source my ingredients and I also take greatest care in the production process, so that important components like vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and high performance active ingredients in plant extracts, keep their full effectiveness.

*All Gerlinde Naturals products have been professionally formulated and additionally are certified for safe use by a qualified Chemist as required by current legislations to legally produce and distribute natural skin care products.
Please make sure that your natural or natural and/or organic skin care supplier holds a Cosmetic Product Safety Report/Certificate (CPSR). This is a legal requirement for everybody who produces skin care products within the European Union, this also includes micro businesses who display and sell for example on market stalls at farmers markets, Christmas fairs, etc. This ensures that you are receiving a product which is fit for purpose, adhering to cosmetic guidelines, packaging and hygiene standards to avoid contamination and health issues.
Skin care producers must comply with European Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, which came into force on 11 July 2013. The regulation requires us to notify the European Commission (ECAS / CPNP) of every single product formulation that gets released onto the market.
Gerlinde Naturals is a member of the Guild of Soap and Toiletry Makers
It is not generally known that in order to legally sell a crafted soap or toiletry product within the European Union that it must meet legislative guidelines. The reason for this is public safety. The same legislative standards applies to imported products. The legislation in question is the Cosmetics Products (Safety) Regulations and it is legislation in force within the European Union. A major reason for the existence of the Guild is to raise awareness of the Cosmetics Products (Safety) Regulations. The legislation sets standards. It aims to ensure that every ingredient in handcrafted soap and toiletry products is safe to use. Some ingredients are banned because they’ve been found by scientific testing to be potentially harmful. Other products are banned or restricted because they are potential allergens. The aim of the legislation is to protect the general public and the craft soap and toiletry maker.
