Deepskin Organics® is the essence and philosophy behind MARIA ÅKERBERG, Sweden’s largest organic, professional skincare brand, developed and produced in the Swedish coastal town of Frillesås. The brand’s all-organic and natural products nourish the skin on a deep level, helping it to reconstruct its natural protective barrier and create long-lasting results.

“We want to make a difference with skincare that brings out our natural beauty, with natural products that allow you to see real results,” says Maria Åkerberg, founder of the skincare brand with the same name. The customers seem to agree, as the brand is the fourfold winner of Product of the Year at the Organic Beauty Awards, arranged by the non-profit trade organisation NOC.
This year’s award-winning product is the gentle Hand Cream with extract of the ancient medicinal plant Calendula, perfect for delicate skin. Products which have previously won are Papaya Peeling, with its exfoliating and moisturising effect; Eye Cream More, with firming extracts from the Persian silk tree; and Face Lotion More, an anti-ageing face cream with red clover extract. MARIA ÅKERBERG is also the only brand in the world to offer Pure Cell Treatment, a unique facial treatment with live, plant-based stem cells, which kickstarts the cell renewing process with the vitality of roseroot. “This is a fantastic treatment with immediate results that is more affordable than one would expect. This goes for all of our products. High-quality, organic and natural skincare should be available to everyone,” Åkerberg sums up.
