With warmer weather on the horizon and Summer fast approaching it’s time to switch up our skincare regime to prep skin for the change in seasons. Think lighter moisturisers, purifying face masks and most importantly, a strong SPF

Cult organic beauty pioneers, Green People, have been leading the way in simple, purifying and functional skincare for decades. Their latest release, Nordic Roots, is a natural, organic skin care concept which draws on founder Charlotte Vøhtz’s Danish upbringing and Nordic heritage. This is skincare inspired by nature and the region’s native flora and fauna. Combining pure, clean and inspirational active ingredients, Nordic Roots nods to the Scandinavian values of simplicity and honesty. Scent-free and gender neutral, these products deliver clean and functional skin care that really works. 


Start your minimalist skincare routine with Nordic Roots Cranberry Micellar Foam – £19.00 (150ml), a naturally refreshing cleanser with make-up dissolving micelles. Certified COSMOS Organic, it works in perfect harmony with your skin’s natural pH-balance, gently yet effectively cleansing the skin. Antioxidant-rich Cranberry Extract fights free radicals while Apple Cellular Complex delivers a hydrating cleanse while protecting the structure of the skin, boosting skin elasticity and targeting fine lines and wrinkles. 

Deep Cleanse

During the warmer seasons, it’s important to deep cleanse your skin to prevent clogged pores. Treat your skin to a weekly deep cleanse with the Purifying Face Mask – £22.00 (50ml). This mattifying face mask uses Activated Charcoal to draw toxins out of pores while Bentonite Clay draws dirt away from the skin. Alpine Willow balances oil production to discourage acne bacteria while moisturising Oat Lipid seals in long-lasting softness.

Boost hydration

After cleansing, follow up with the Nordic Roots Hyaluronic Booster Serum – £28.00 (28ml), a scent-free, intensely hydrating formula that is also certified COSMOS Natural. Blending organic plant extracts such as Sugar Beets and Hop Flowers with Hyaluronic Acid to deliver deep moisturisation, it works in perfect harmony with your skin’s natural pH-balance to leave it deeply nourished, calm and smooth. 


Once your serum has settled into the skin, reach for the Nordic Roots Apple Complex Moisturiser – £26.00 (50ml). Certified COSMOS Natural, this intensely hydrating facial moisturiser will restore, protect and balance the skin barrier. Vitamin E-rich Oat Kernel Extract calms and soothes redness and irritation while Sugar Beets contain richly hydrating amino acids to hydrate and lock in moisture. 


Last, but by no means least, is a high factor SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. While all-year round SPF is recommended, it’s even more important during the sunnier months.

*New & Improved* Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF 30 – £20.00 (50ml)

Enjoy a natural, non-greasy broad spectrum UVA/UVB facial sun cream for your daily sun protection needs. Skin defence antioxidants and vitamins A, C & E (Green Tea, Olive, Avocado, Edelweiss and Rosemary extract) are added to support the skin’s immune system and protect against cell damage. Made without essential oils and naturally non-pore clogging ingredients this sun lotion is perfect for those with sensitive skin.


The Nordic Roots range uses an innovative new sustainable outer packaging solution that is incorporated with 25% grass, offering a clean carton board that is compostable, biodegradable and 100% recyclable.
