About

It all started with a common skin problem

It basically all started with going to different dermatologists because of my skin which looked like I had a permanent chicken skin. No dermatologist actually knew what it was and from "You need more sun" over "You need less sun" to "Buy my expensive cream!" I had it heard all which is why I started doing my own research and stumbled over the word "Keratosis Pilaris" which describes the skin condition I have: when your hair follicles become blocked with a build-up of keratin – a substance found in skin, hair and nails. It is harmless but of course, it doesn't look pretty.
Long story short: I fell into this rabbit hole of Keratosis Pilaris, natural cosmetics, homemade body butter and that was when I started experimenting and created my own body butter which actually helped me to minimize my skin condition.

Roll forward a few years and I'm sitting in uni, needing to decide whether I want to write a "traditional" dissertation, do a work placement or start my own enterprise. Obviously, I decide for the later one and start working together with a uni department dedicated to starting enterprises. And here I am on Etsy.

I have the so-called "chicken skin" (Keratosis Pilaris). Does your body butter help?

As our body butter is no medical product, we can not claim that our body butter helps to improve chicken skin or other skin conditions. However, when our product was in the testing phase, it was applied each day for several weeks on skin suffering under Keratosis Pilaris and it improved significantly which is why we are confident int saying that it MAY help you and that our body butter MAY have a therapeutical effects on the skin. But we do not guarantee it!
