Maria Åkerberg

This is how we work with our ingredients


Quality and transparency always come first. We choose ingredients based on their naturally beneficial properties, and we clearly state what our products contain and why.

Clear ingredient list

We want you to know what it is you use on your skin and hair. That is why all our products have had complete ingredient declarations since we started in 1995. It was not until a few years later, in 1999, that EU passed a law making standardised ingredient declarations mandatory. All member states have agreed on common Latin/international names for the many different ingredients. Unfortunately, it is still difficult to figure out the actual contents of many products on the market.

MARIA ÅKERBERG has chosen to take it one step further; we translate the latin/international names to English. These are included on the packaging, in our catalogue, and here on our website. If there is not enough room for an ingredient list on the packaging, we use the symbol "Hand in open book". This means you can read about the product contents in the catalogue and on this website instead. In the ingredient list of makeup products, ingredients that add colour to the product are preceeded by +/-.

Varying ingredients depending on harvests

As MARIA ÅKERBERG work with plant-based ingredients, the scent and appearance of our products may vary slightly from one harvest to another. This is because access to water, sunlight and soil vary over time. The variations may also be caused by the ingredients' varying colours. This is the case with the calendula extract used in Hand Cream and Shea Balm. If you want the exact same colour in all batches, you need synthetically produced ingredients.

We always prioritise the natural effect of the primary products. Therefore, we choose to accept such variations. They are simply proof that our ingredients are pure and natural. This also means that the scent of products from MARIA ÅKERBERG may change slightly after the packaging has been opened.

Ecolabeling and certification

All our ingredients contribute to sustainable production and consumption, and is part of a sustainable cycle. However, not all are certified as organic. Some of our ingredients are minerals, taken from the ground, which means they cannot be certified in the same manner as cultivated ingredients. Two examples are White Clay and Iron Oxide. Most of our ingredients do have some sort of independent ecolabeling.

Ecolabeling of our cultivated ingredients:

*ABCERT: abcert.de
*RSPO: rspo.org
*QC&I: qci.de
*BDIH: bdih.de
*Soil Association: soilassociation.org
*Organic Farming: organic-farming.europa.eu
*Farm Verified Organic: ics-intl.com
*NaTrue: natrue.org
*COSMOS: cosmos-standard.org
*KRAV: krav.se
*Austria Bio Garantie: abg.at
*Australian Certified Organic: aco.net.au


Only natural ingredients

The contents of your skin and hair care products not only affect you as an individual. For example, mineral oils dehydrate the skin, and they also lack biodegradability. Therefore, products from MARIA ÅKERBERG only contain renewable, plant-based oils, cold pressed and essential. This contributes to a more sustainable use of natural resources.

Our ingredients are organic and many of them are certified. Most come from the plant kingdom, but many important ingredients are minerals, taken from the ground, such as Kaolin and Silica. 

Our products never contain synthetic ingredients, such as emulsifiers, preservatives or mineral oils. Such substances often decompose very slowly in nature, and they lack fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. We also avoid animal-based ingredients, with Beeswax and Honey as the only exceptions.
