Company Image: The Natural Way
Under this banner, cosmetican Charlotte Meentzen founded the »Institute
for Natural Cosmetics« in Dresden in 1930. The same year, together with
her sister Gertrude Seltmann-Meentzen, she started a company under the
name »Charlotte Meentzen, Heilkräuter Kosmetik« (Active Herbal Beauty).
They determined that the company should produce and sell beauty
products based on natural plant extracts.
The Meentzen sisters had been well schooled in the beneficial effects of herbs and plants from an early age by their mother, a woman with a profound understanding of the power of natural plants and herbs.
This knowledge and experience helped Charlotte Meentzen to become one of the first cosmeticians in Germany to use natural plant extracts for cosmetic purposes and for personal skincare. This revolutionized the entire concept of beauty care, as it was known then.
Charlotte Meentzen was one of the pioneers of natural cosmetics.
Today, modern technology and research document the many benefits of plant extracts in skincare products. Firming skin tissue while moisturising, promoting circulation and cell growth and reducing the risk of infection - these are just a few of the benefits of modern phyto (plant) cosmetics.
Charlotte Meentzen Kräutervital Kosmetik offers a selection of high quality, tried and tested cosmetic products to cleanse and tone your skin, provide protection and overnight care and to regenerate your skin.
