The beginning of a happy ending
I was happily pregnant, when in 2006, Greenpeace tested my body and blood for harmful substances as part of their large chemical campaign. Although one of the youngest of the eight test subjects, I was the one who had the most chemicals in my blood.
Many of the substances had proven or suspected endocrine disruptive effects. In the midst of the joy of having my first child, I was shocked and appalled to discover that many of those harmful chemicals came from beauty products - from all the exquisite, expensive creams, oils, soaps and toners with which I had pampered myself for years. Or rather, thought I had pampered myself with. The reality was that I actually had done the opposite.
This realisation made me begin to look far and wide for new beauty products. I felt that there should be a stop to harmful chemicals in the name of beauty. But, on the other hand, I wasn't going to do without my daily luxuries, fine fragrances and the beautiful packaging that completes the experience. I didn't think it was an unreasonable demand but no matter where I looked, there were no products that lived up to my desire for high-quality, exclusive and non-toxic luxury.
One summer morning, when the air was clear and my courage couldn't possibly fail me, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I would create what I had searched for. The result is Rudolph Care - a series of exclusive beauty products, embodying pure luxury enhanced by active ingredients that nurture and care for your skin perfectly. I use all the products myself because I want to be free from ingredients harmful to me, my child, our future and the environment.
Rudolph Care beauty products are the first in the world to be both Nordic Ecolabelled and ECOCERT-certified. Rudolph Care is the beginning of a good ending.
Now you too can pamper yourself with a clear conscience.
