Our Guiding Principles

our guiding principles

Manufactory instead of Mass Production

We develop all myrto products in our own laboratory based on the latest scientific studies. Our unique recipes are tailored to the individual needs of sensitive and problematic skin. We manufacture exclusively locally in our factory in Bergisch Gladbach - constantly fresh and with a lot of handwork.

With increasing stressors in the modern world, it is important to minimize the harmful effects on the skin. Our claim: reduction to the essentials, the lowest possible ecological footprint and the uncompromising natural quality of all ingredients.

Premium Quality - without Compromises

For developing our products we only use ingredients for certified natural cosmetics. Our standards clearly exceed their selection criteria in terms of optimized skin compatibility. When producing our holistic and highly effective natural cosmetics, we do not use ingredients of animal origin. myrto products are 100% vegan and are not tested on animals. They are recommended by the animal protection organization PETA, we are partners of animalfair. The organic oils we use are natural; our plant extracts are preferably extracted solvent-free with pure carbon dioxide. They come from controlled organic cultivation or wild collection and are fairly traded.

Sustainable Effectiveness 

All myrto care products not only have a short-term effectiveness. They stand for healthy, beautiful skin and vital, full-bodied hair, especially in long time application. In all myrto organic shampoos we use natural washing-active amino acids in a maximum proportion, which ensures the incomparable sustainable care effect and skin compatibility.

Optimized Skin Compatibility

The myrto organic facial care is manufactured based on our innovative, emulsifier-free concept with the natural active ingredient beta-glucan. It strengthens the natural protective function of the skin barrier - for healthy, long-term youthful skin in balance. By using high doses of skin-analogous phospholipids in facial care, we can completely avoid emulsifiers and consistency agents with their well-known unpleasant side effects. Instead of fatty alcohols and ester oils from refined palm oil, myrto uses high proportions of organic shea butter and organic vegetable oils with their full spectrum of effectiveness. The emulsifier-free formulations ensure optimized skin compatibility - tailored to individual skin needs.

Respect for Nature & People 

In order not to unnecessarily pollute our environment and to avoid long transport routes, we prefer to work with local partners from the region. All of our packaging is made in Germany or Austria. Our products are preferably packaged in glass. We support fair trade projects. This includes shea butter from Burkina Faso as well as our hand-pressed argan oil from Morocco and babassu oil from a Brazilian small farmer cooperative. We are committed to natural forests as a donor to the BUND “Save Forest” campaign.

Continuous Innovation

For us, innovation based on high-quality natural active ingredients means the development of new natural cosmetic recipes with optimized skin compatibility and proven effectiveness. In addition to knowledge of the healing power of traditional medicinal plants, this also includes the use of innovative plant ingredients: bakuchiol instead of synthetic retinol, copaiba balm instead of tretinoin, encapsulated vitamin C (ascorbyl glucoside) instead of skin-irritating unencapsulated vitamin C (ascorbic acid). Our puristic recipes do not contain unnecessary additives such as fragrances, alcohol, emulsifiers, preservatives or palm oil.
