We were intrigued when we heard that local brand i+m Naturkosmetik was launching a line of body care products designed as a homage to “always changing, exciting and innovative” Berlin.
One hundred percent vegan and made with fair trade Ugandan shea butter and Moroccan argan oil, the lemony-ginger scented gels and creams are bio and über-ethical!
Too bad the packaging is so reminiscent of a generic luxury cosmetic line you’d find in a fancy Berlin hotel bathroom and the black-and-white pics of the TV Tower and Oberbaumbrücke adorning the bottles convey images of a bygone idea of urban grittiness rather than the promise of freshness and nature. Maybe a good gift for nostalgic ex-Berliners?
