04 June 2018

We won!

We are so proud of our beloved Papaya Peeling, being granted Product of the Year in Organic Beauty Awards! This is the third time that a product from MARIA ÅKERBERG is awarded this title, elected by the Swedish people who cast votes for their favourite product. 

We also won in the category Best Shampoo 2018 with Shampoo Nettle.

How to use Papaya Peeling

Papaya Peeling is a gentle, facial enzyme exfoliator, suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive skin. Papaya Peeling contains Papain, an extract from papaya that gently dissolves dead skin cells and prevents blackheads, without affecting the underlying skin. 

Use Papaya Peeling twice a week or as needed. Apply Papaya Peeling to cleansed, dry skin. Massage with gentle, circular motions, for 1–2 minutes. Then, add water and continue massaging until the exfoliator becomes a cream. You can also massage the face with a wet, soft facial brush. When the small grains have dissolved, rinse with lukewarm water and finish with a Freshener.

For very sensitive skin, mix Papaya Peeling with water before applying it to the face, without rubbing. Leave it on for a few minutes as a mask, and then rinse off.

Moisturising treatment: Apply Papaya Peeling, wet your fingertips with water, and massage until the granules have dissolved. Apply Face Mask Moist on top of the exfoliator and leave on overnight. Alternatively, leave it on for at least 20 minutes. Try adding a facial mask every time you exfoliate. Exfoliators and facial masks work best as a team.

How to use Shampoo Nettle

Shampoo Nettle contains Nettle and Coltsfoot, which promote hair growth.

The gently cleansing ingredients from coconut and corn do not dehydrate the hair and the scalp. Instead, the hair regains its natural lustre, softness and volume. Guar Gum from the Guar plant makes it easy to comb. 

Wet your hair and scalp. Take a very small amount of Shampoo Nettle, equal to half a teaspoon or 2.5 ml. Distribute in your hands, add some water and massage thoroughly onto hair and scalp. Rinse well.

Combine with Scalp Scrub Intensive and Scalp Treatment Nettle for best effect.

No lather?
Do not add more shampoo! Instead, rinse and wash again, leave the shampoo in the hair for a few minutes, then rinse thoroughly. It is always advisable to wash your hair twice in a row; the first wash dissolves impurities and the second one washes clean.

Flat hair?
Either Shampoo Nettle has not been left on the hair long enough, or it has not been rinsed out properly. It is very important to rinse thoroughly.

Wispy hair? 
Use Hair Conditioner or Hair Conditioner Energy.
