What makes the LEDERHAAS brand something special?
For LEDERHAAS, dealing with the skin is not a business with the surface, but work on the depth. For us, nature is a teacher of sustainability in form and content. Their concepts inspire us, their raw materials convince us. Cultural works remind LEDERHAAS what it is really about when we produce and use cosmetic products. Ecology, economy, social issues and aesthetics belong together for LEDERHAAS. This is what LEDERHAAS is special about.
What is "skin" for LEDERHAAS?
For LEDERHAAS, the skin is part of the body and soul. It is a reflection of evolutionary events and individual experiences, a place of history and stories. The smile, as a sign of joy and happiness, the scar, as a trace of injury, is written into the skin in the same way as the food we eat, the sleep we may lack or a word that says to us was judged. Cosmetics primarily serve the purpose of skin health on body and soul.
