German skincare brand Urban Cosmetics Berlin, aka. UC Berlin, has been producing its own products in its lab/factory in Kreuzberg since 2011. UC Berlin was born out of the need to create authentic, natural products for urban people whose skin is exposed to urban environmental pollution on a daily basis. UC Berlin is 100% natural and contains as few ingredients as possible using organic and fair trade certified herbs, which are gently processed to preserve a variety of vitamins and active ingredients.
"Our craft is selftaught and the more we learned, the greater our aversion to industrial cosmetics. As many ingredients in the cosmetics industry do not add value to the skin we decided to follow the philosophy of less is more" notes Fabian Thiele, partner and founder.
What is unique about UC Berlin is the approach on how to take care of the skin. The facial care consists of three stages: Toner, Serum and Oil. Most cosmetics are mixed together to form an emulsion, UC Berlin applies each product separately. This allows the customised application to the needs of the skin, which can vary greatly depending on the season and skin type. In addition to facial cleansing, UC Berlin offers body care products, bath oils and essential oils, which have a multitude of uses. To contribute to environmental protection, the company uses glass bottles, which have a deposit and can be recycled.
