Our Ideal Of Beauty
True beauty comes from within – it’s not in your face but in your heart. If you feel beautiful – you are beautiful. To feel good, sometimes it only needs a joyful evening with friends, a delicious meal with nice company or a friendly smile from someone – even if it’s just from the mirror. To nourish yourself is also a good method to feel very good and well in your body. That is exactly the reason we make our cosmetics for.
Beauty – is different for everyone
“Change the world with beauty” – Since our establishment in 1978, this principle has been essential to us and our cosmetics. We do not only refer to our products natural origins, but also to a natural, individual understanding of beauty. To us, the primary factor producing beauty is a positive attitude towards oneself. Cosmetics cannot work miracles. But they can serve as a gesture of love to yourself and can support your skin´s self regulation as well as protect it against harmful environmental influences.
Application – as unique as you are
Just as beauty has many faces, everyone’s skin has different needs. This is precisely why we don’t believe in systematic cosmetic concepts or strict application guidelines – these can never take every skin type into account, and give an illusion of expertise that takes agency away from the customers. This is why we avoid specific claims and guidelines about how to use our products. Rather, we trust that our customers are in tune with their own bodies and can decide what’s best for them. This was the ethos of the company founder, Inge Stamm: “Try it out and see what works best for you. After all, you’re the expert on your own body.” However, thanks to our years of experience and knowledge about medicinal plants, we can offer recommendations and useful tips.
Our recipes – placing trust in the power of plants
We know that the most natural raw ingredients are the most effective. This is why we only use cold-pressed organic oils with i+m products. We don’t heat these oils, nor do we neutralise their scent or colour chemically – processes that are, unfortunately, very common even in the natural cosmetics industry. Cold pressing is the only way to fully preserve the plants’ valuable active ingredients. Our recipes have been completely vegan for a number of years now, which makes us pioneers in the vegan cosmetics industry. Company founder Inge Stamm has always believed in the power of plants: “Over the years, I’ve observed how purely natural active ingredients combinations are tolerated best by customers and are the most effective.” When it comes to the shelf life of our products, we also trust the power of the plants. We tap into the self-preserving quality of plants in our recipes, which allows us to avoid artificial preservatives altogether. It goes without saying that none of our products contain synthetic, mineral oil-based or animal-based ingredients – and the result is high-quality, authentic natural products that are compatible with different skin types and which meet your individual skincare needs.
