When it does not exist, I will need to make it myself

The founder of the company is Inge Stamm, one of the most experienced developers of German natural cosmetics. i+m NATURKOSMETIK BERLIN is one of the most traditional and politically committed natural cosmetics brands in Germany – and has been since 1978!  

Inge worked as a midwife in the 70's and soon she noticed that the skin of babies reacts to conventional care products with different kinds of irritations. As there were no natural alternatives easily available, Inge as trained druggist, midwife and naturopath decided to develop and produce her own alternative products for skin care based on natural vegetable raw materials.

“As a certified chemist, I knew my way around botanical extracts and I knew how to make a smooth cream. I learned about herbs and medicinal plants in my work as a naturopathic practitioner; and as a midwife, I observed how newborn babies increasingly began to react to the standard care products we were using. A cream that met my expectations was nowhere to be found on the market. This is why, 35 years ago, I began developing a new range of cosmetics without preservatives, mineral oils or synthetic ingredients.”

A true Pioneer

In 1978 the term “organic” or “non-toxic” was not yet established and an ecologically sustainable lifestyle was rather the exception. So for Inge Stamm it was a real challenge to search for natural, ecologically grown raw materials.

She can be considered an ecological pioneer as she decided to completely dispense with unnecessary outer packaging such as cardboard boxes for ecological reasons. The same applies to the intention to use exclusively animal-free raw materials and to completely dispense with artificial preservatives.

From 2000, Inge Stamm decided to produce only vegan natural cosmetics and said goodbye to beeswax and honey in their compositions, the only animal ingredients in her products. This makes i+m NATURKOSMETIK BERLIN one of the pioneers in the vegan movement!
