Eva was working as a high school teacher, when she faced completely unexpected challenges as a mother of 6 children. Her young children began to experience skin problems which couldn’t be tackled with conventional ointments and creams. Additionally Eva herself noticed that natural cosmetic creams required increasingly frequent application, while drying out her skin more and more. Consequently Eva started - with love, empathy and pure ingredients from nature - to mix her own healing creams without skin-weakening additives. The gentle and sustainable healing properties of these irritation-free recipes, along with Eva’s deep passion for plants, encouraged her, after over 20 years of research and experience, to develop a holistic, natural cosmetic care concept for sensitive and problematic skin.
In 2012 Eva finally founded the myrto manufactory together with Peter. As a cybernetic, Peter supports the development of the enterprise with his visionary ideas and experience. This concerns professional structures in the area of IT, technology and organization. In particular, he enabled the efficient development of new, innovative natural cosmetics recipes to provide our customers with first-class products. He attaches great importance to the design of the processes and to the reproducibility of the results. This ensures the consistent, premium quality of our myrto products.
Premium natural cosmetics with fresh, natural ingredients cannot be a mass product. Therefore we always manufacture our myrto products in small batches. Our aim is to develop high-quality, innovative products based on premium, natural ingredients in order to achieve first class skin compatibility for our quality-conscious customers. We pay special attention to environmental compatibility and complete transparency. We focus on ethical and social aspects, supporting, for example, women's cooperatives in Brazil and Morocco.
All our raw materials are compliant with the various quality standards of certified natural cosmetics. Each ingredient, with its Latin INCI name in our glossary, is linked to an independent database, taken from www.codecheck.info, which is based on scientific studies.
In our manufacturing process all ingredients are left as natural as possible. Our plant oils are cold pressed and from organic cultivation, preferably from Faitrade projects. Our organic plant extracts come from solvent-free CO2 extraction, in order to preserve the plants’ full, active spectrum authentically and with maximum quality.
We completely do without preservatives. Furthermore, myrto products are without fatty acid-based emulsifiers. Instead, cereal and fruit fibers keep the water and oil phase of our creams stable. As the protective lipid barrier of the skin remains intact and is strengthened, our products are suitable for those with sensitive and problematic skin.
