You’re going to get more than just a comfy pair of sandals from Birkenstock. The footwear brand announced that they’re diving into skincare.
Birkenstock Natural Care is a 28-piece skincare line made with the brand’s signature cork oak. “While we were doing our research regarding a healthy product concept in the skin-care segment, we realized that scientists in the cosmetics industry had discovered the highly effective anti-aging effect of suberin, a remarkable substance which is contained in cork oak extract,” Birkenstock CEO Oliver Reichert tells WWD.
Suberin is known as a lifting and tightening agent. The products will also be infused with argan oil, hydrating hyaluronic acid, and free radical-fighting elderberry to further remedy your skin concerns.
The line will have a range of night creams, cleansers, moisturizers, and lip balms for the specific skin concerns of both men and women. If you want to get your hands on these, Birkenstock Natural Care will be available later this year in Birkenstock stores and on their website.[Allure]
