When I created my silversmithing shop in Salt Lake City, I knew that I wanted to create a space that also carried select items with either a Scandinavian design, origin or esthetic.
I've been quite selective about the brands or items I introduce into my shop as I want to only sell products of makers and companies who's business practices I can fully endorse and who's products are truly something I love and want to share with my customers.
One of the very first brands that I introduced to my brick and mortar portion of Pixel + Torch was L:A Bruket: a Swedish natural skincare line hailing from Sweden's west coast. It' s made in Varberg, one of Sweden's most well-known spa towns (and only a 15 minute drive from my family's summer home on the very same shoreline). I have grown up spending my summers on these beaches and am thrilled to share these lovely products with you, something from an area that means so much to me.
The company's close relationship to the coast means they work with nature and natural ingredients. They harvest seaweed from the shores of Kattegatt Sea by hand, dry it in open air sheds and use it their products to restore, revitalize and nurture the skin naturally. Similarly the ocean salt is used in many of their products such as the salt scrub and the surf soap.
The brown bottles extend the shelf life of the natural and organic ingredients and L:A Bruket prides itself in using only the very best ingredients that nature has to offer. The company is certified through the Soil Association for Organic Health and Beauty Care products, EcoCert and NOP (Soil Association for USDA National Organics Program).
