Hi there! I am a total nature lover and I'm all about living a holistic lifestyle. Oh, and my skin is super sensitive and on the dry side too. That's why I decided to create my own line of pH balanced plant-based skincare products that are completely animal by-product free. These products are all about giving your skin the love and care it deserves.
Back in June 2012, I took a leap of faith and launched Gerlinde Naturals, my very own skincare company. It's not just about sharing my awesome vegan skincare creations with the world, but also spreading the knowledge and passion for a more natural, gentle, and healthy way of living.
My award-winning range of natural products pampers your skin with incredible botanicals and age-fighting ingredients, especially designed for those with sensitive skin.
My enthusiasm for the environment and my strong ethical values inspire every formulation I create. I absolutely love blending vegan elements to make gentle but effective, natural skincare products.
From my studio in the UK, I make each product fresh on the day it's ordered and package them in attractive, reusable, eco-friendly materials.
I can't wait to welcome you to the Gerlinde Naturals family!

MADE BY HAND ON THE DAY OF YOUR ORDER
When it comes to my skincare products, I put a lot of love and attention into making them just right for you. Each one is carefully crafted from scratch after receiving your order, guaranteeing the freshest and highest quality product possible.
I use a bunch of amazing natural extracts and botanicals in my formulations, which I handle with great care to preserve their goodness. Rest assured, you won't find skincare products fresher than mine anywhere else!
ALSO AVAILABLE FRAGRANCE FREE
Most of my products include a mix of plant-based essential oils, like neroli, frankincense, rose, geranium, and more. These aromatherapy oils not only enhance the effectiveness of the products but also create a delightful fragrance that promotes a sense of wellbeing.
However, I understand that some customers have extremely sensitive skin or prefer unscented products. That's why I offer fragrance-free versions of all my skincare products to cater to their needs.
If you're curious about the specific ingredients used in each product, you can find a detailed list on every product page. This includes both the botanical and full English names of the ingredients.
100% VEGAN - CRUELTY FREE
I'm all about animal welfare, so I make sure to steer clear of any ingredients that come from animals like beeswax, lactic acid, retinol, lanolin, and more. Plus, I'm a big fan of the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and do my best to support them whenever I can!
ECO FRIENDLY - SUSTAINABLE - RECYCLABLE
I use recyclable glass jars and bottles as well as beautiful recyclable, re-usable tissue paper and cotton bags from British companies. The outer packaging for shipping is also recyclable, and I reuse my suppliers' packaging materials to cushion and protect the products when sending them to you.
CAREFULLY SOURCED, PUREST PLANT BASED INGREDIENTS
I go to great lengths to find the best ingredients and I make sure to produce my products with extreme care. This way, all the good stuff like vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, and powerful plant extracts maintain their full effectiveness and can work their magic.
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 1223/2013.

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.
