Skincare is probably the last thing we'd associate with a comfy pair of sandals, but Birkenstock is about to change that. The German shoe brand now has a full line of skincare products—and we're talking a whole range including eye creams, shower gels, and even moisturizing face masks.
Birkenstock Natural Skin Care currently has four product ranges designed for different skin types and needs—Natural Comfort, Natural Moisture, Natural Freshness, and Natural Age Control. Each product contains cork oak extract or suberin, a molecule in cork that helps improve the skin's elasticity. Their formulations are also certified natural by COSMOS (COSMetic Organic and Natural Standard) in Europe, and they're free of parabens, cruelty-free, and vegan.
What's impressive about this line is that everything was thoughtfully created to be sustainable. The products' packaging is made of recyclable materials, and the brand offers refill cartridges for when you run out. Moreover, the cork used in the skincare and in their shoes are harvested without causing severe damage to trees.
All the products are available online via the brand's website, so if you ever wanted your skincare routine to be as simple as sliding into a pair of Birkenstocks, then congratulations—that's now possible.
