c/o Institut für Naturkosmetik Prof. Kruck
Eva Silvana 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 founded together with Prof. Dr. Peter Kruck the myrto natural cosmetics manufacture. Since Peter has many years of experience in the field of cybernetics and environmental informatics, he uses his experience to support the development of the company, which was renamed the Institute for Natural Cosmetics Prof. Kruck GmbH & Co. KG on 01.01.2022. His commitment concerns the development of professional structures in the areas of IT, technology and organization. In particular, it enabled the efficient development of innovative natural cosmetic formulations in order to be able to reliably provide first-class products to our customers. He attaches great importance to the design of the processes and the greatest possible reproducibility of the results. In this way, a consistent premium quality of all myrto products is achieved for our customers. As an owner-managed family company for sustainable premium natural cosmetics, we are actively supported by our 6 children, who are involved in IT, photography and design.
Class instead of mass
Premium natural cosmetics with first-class, natural ingredients cannot be mass-produced. That is why we always produce our myrto natural cosmetics products fresh in our local factory in small batches. It is our concern to develop high-quality, natural and innovative products with first-class skin compatibility and to make them available to quality-conscious customers. We reject the use of semi-finished products for the mass market for quality reasons.
All of our raw materials conform to the various quality seals for certified natural cosmetics. In our glossary, each raw material with an INCI designation is assigned an independent rating that was taken from the www.codecheck.info database. Without exception, all myrto products have the 100% green ring from Codecheck. In addition, all of the ingredients in our products have, without exception, been given top marks according to Ökotest criteria.
Our facial care is 100% vegan, free from alcohol, skin-damaging emulsifiers, preservatives and fragrances. The myrto natural cosmetics strengthen the natural protective layer of the skin and contain a minimal number of natural ingredients. We value special environmental compatibility and complete transparency. No empty promises and no compromises.
Our work focuses on ethical, social and sustainable action for the environment and people. With this in mind, we support women's cooperatives in Brazil, Burkina Faso and Morocco, for example.
We fill as many of our products as possible into glass bottles and jars. The only exceptions are the face creams, which are particularly sensitive to microbes and are packaged in recycled PP airless dispensers, as is the organic conditioner. All packaging is made in Germany and Austria. Our suppliers are preferably small companies and come from the region.
Environmentally friendly grass paper is used for our recycling shipping cartons with plastic-free padding material: only 2 liters of water are required for one ton of grass paper, compared to 6,000 liters for normal paper. In our manufactory we rely 100% on renewable energies, reduce our paper consumption as much as possible and consistently do without completely unnecessary outer packaging for myrto products.
