Too often is this industry inundating consumers with more and more products, better self care = buy more, and ingredient lists that are so long they direct us to the website. That’s not what we’re about at Nord Beauty. To us, the beauty is in the simplicity and we see the value in combining fewer, natural, purposeful ingredients that you can pronounce. We don’t want you to be overwhelmed by having a 15 step nighttime routine, we’re here to provide the science and knowledge behind developing skincare products that solve your needs with fewer products.
The skin microbiome is considered a living interface between our body and the environment, and its preservation is not only important to prevent skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea and acne, but for overall health and wellbeing. It is our mission to bring this kind of awareness and education to the forefront so everyone has a better understanding of the biggest organ in their body. We’re here to be an educator in this space.
The overall health and wellbeing of our skin microbiome is dependant upon keeping its pH balance slightly acidic. The skin microbiome is home to a natural layer of acidic oils that, when kept intact, is a sign of healthy skin. All commercial skincare products that contain unclean ingredients like parabens, petroleum by-products and sulfates, and that have an alkaline pH, break down the skin microbiome and leave it vulnerable to bacteria that can cause inflammatory acne, eczema, rosacea and dermatitis. Plant-based oils are acidic and are nature’s gift to help us gently and lovingly look after our skin. This is why all of our products are, and will always be, oil-based.
