Sometimes a single idea can change a person's life. Riita clearly remembers that morning in March 2003 when she wondered why she was applying harmful substances not only to her skin, but also to that of her children. At the time she was working as a hairdresser and was frustrated with the daily dose of chemicals she was exposed to. After that turning point, nothing would be the same. Studying aromatherapy led her to natural cosmetics, and she began to learn more about the healing effects of herbs and plants. Until then she had not realized that a wide variety of treasures could be hidden in the forests she knew. Soon, she would start working on skin and hair care products that would be based on edible ingredients. Thus, Flow Cosmetics was born.
Currently Flow Cosmetics manufactures skin care products with the best and purest ingredients in the world, giving priority to local ingredients. This is why the most important active ingredients in their product line are native Finnish wild berries and herbs, they are packed with vitamins, antioxidants and powerful northern energy. Nordic plants have an incredible amount of protective nutrients that they store during the short but bright northern summer. The sun shines through the night and plants harvest energy to survive the long, harsh winter.
At Flow we are honored to be part of the Finnish Association for Natural Cosmetics. We firmly believe that authentically good products can only be made with the best ingredients. That's why in every product we make, certified organic ingredients have been carefully chosen to work alongside wild-sourced plants. We ensure that our natural products do not compromise efficacy by ensuring that formulations are rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Almost all of the plant ingredients we use are certified organic or wild-collected in Lapland. The preservatives and necessary cosmetic additives (eg emulsifiers) that we use proudly meet the COSMOS standard for organic and natural cosmetics. Flow only uses glass containers and recyclable cardboard boxes. Attention to detail and Nordic know-how, which translates into great, honest, transparent and effective products.
