One of my bathroom staples is the Danish skincare brand Rudolph Care. The products are great for my skin, and best of all, the whole range is organic while still retaining a luxurious feel. The founder of Rudolph Care, Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph (below, left), took part in a Greenpeace study in 2006 on hazardous chemicals in our blood and discovered that she had the highest level among the participants in the study, and that many of these chemicals came from beauty products. This is what eventually led her to start her own line of ECOCERT-certified organic skincare, which seven years later is comprised of more than fifteen products. The company is constantly adding to its range, having just launched an antiaging serum, and I am told that new items will be launched in 2014.
Rudolph Care products are based on oils from açai, olives, jojoba, coconut, and almonds, of which açai remains the main ingredient. I remember first encountering açai, the Brazilian super-food, on a trip to Rio de Janeiro, where we would eat blended frozen açai on Ipanema beach just like the locals. Maybe that’s why I have such a fondness for the scent of the Rudolph Care products!
