Grön Lycka (Green Happiness) is a Swedish organic cosmetic brand founded by me, Carina the CEO and owner of Grön Lycka Cosmetics AB. With a background as a nurse and as a herbal therapist, I have acquired a solid knowledge of the therapeutic effects of medicinal plants.
In my profession, I have met so many people, adults and young people, with hair problems and scalp problems. Everything from dryness, itching, dandruff to eczema, psoriasis, hair loss, worn and lifeless hair. I started an extensive research that led to the realization of how unnecessarily strong and chemically rich regular shampoos and conditioners are. Cheap substances that do us no good! Something needed to be done. The development of our solid hair care products and solid cosmetics took shape.
About the products
Grön Lycka’s natural cosmetics are plant-based products for optimal therapeutic effect. It´s important for us to add generous amounts of carefully selected raw materials and ingredients from herbal plants, which together complement and strengthen each other to enhance the best effect for the skin and mind.
The production takes place in our soap studio in the country side, not far from the historical little village Rök. Beautiful designed soaps, skincare- and spa products are created by hand in small batches. Based on wide-ranging research and experience, the formulas are developed with the utmost care and we are proud to offer one of Sweden’s finest cosmetics based on plants. We value that the raw materials are fresh, organic and preferably certified. We add generous amounts of natural ingredients such as nourishing oils, different types of clay, algae, extracts and essential oils.
We do not use detergents (SLS, SLES), parabens, citric acid or mineral oils. Our fragrance oils are free from phalates. The soaps are colored with clays and mica, which are natural crushed minerals. Our bio-glitter is without plastic. The products do not contain GMO ingredients. We are against GMOs as the plants are genetically modified to change their genome. We do not use palm oil. The assortment has not been tested on animals and is cruelty free.
Grön Lycka complies with the Swedish Medicines Agency’s requirements for good manufacturing practice during manufacturing (GMP). The products are safety assessed by an authorized chemist and registered in the EU database ECAS / CPNP.
Essential oils contain many beneficial components that are good for the skin but also small levels of allergens to which you can react. If you are unsure, we recommend doing a skin test on the forearm. If skin irritation or itching occurs, do not use the product.
We want to reduce our impact on the environment according to the Zero Waste concept. Our goal is to minimize plastic products in homes and bathrooms and to reduce the number of unnecessary and redundant items. We do this by making long lasting solid soaps, shaving soap pucks, shampoo- and conditioner bars. Our goal is also to develop all-in-one products for several different purposes and uses. We even offer various accessories in ceramics or in natural materials.
Our purpose is also to reduce packaging waste. The assortment is packaged either in glass jars and glass bottles for cream and salve or in recyclable packaging. We also offer no packaging option. Other products will be packaged in recyclable paper bags.
We want people to have access to lower-waste items as much as possible to minimize the footprint on our planet. It is our small contribution to a sustainable environment and an eco-friendly lifestyle.
