I practice DO YOU. I am not a pillar of manifestation of DO YOU. I practice. As a mother, businesswoman, family person, devoted friend and girlfriend etc. I periodically find it hard to even feel what my desires actually are. So, I practice.
Founder & Creative Director
Karmameju was founded in 1999 by Danes Mette Skjærbæk and Julie Krogstad. Julie Krogstad left the brand in 2007, after which Mette has continued its development and shaped the brand that Karmameju is today.
Mette Skjærbæk’s product development is always centred on an uncompromising approach to creating exceptional products that optimise the skin and stimulate the senses through smell, sight and touch. As a green-hearted skincare visionary, innovation and integrity are crucial to everything she creates:
“After ten years as a model in the beauty and fashion industry, I experienced on my own body what a mentally strengthening difference working with holistic skincare can make. In my little apartment in New York, I delved beneath the surface of the whole concept of Natural Health, creating everything from teas to aromatherapy candles, perfume compositions and bath salts. It was during this time that I developed a deep-seated desire to create not only natural products but also highly effective, results-driven skincare – my absolute guiding star for creating Karmameju Skincare. On my return home from New York, I founded Karmameju with an ambition to redefine wellness.
Other elements, such as working with fascinating, sensory-stimulating aromatherapy are also essential to me. The use of natural fragrance has been a passion of mine since I was 18, when I discovered nature’s enriching fragrance universe.
The concept of ‘Natural health’ has fascinated me since I was very young, and the smell of my parents’ big greenhouse is still one of my strongest olfactory memories. I’ve always been drawn to nature – both the blissful sense of peace it instils, and the miraculous, vibrant bioactivity that so impresses me. I believe we are deeply connected to nature and that the body understands all that is natural.
Combining holistic skincare with my love of natural health creates the perfect balance for me. If I can improve your skin and at the same time inspire you to take good care of both your body and mind, then I feel grateful. I have created the products, our holistic Karmameju BLOG and our DO YOU concept with a heartfelt love for people and for the world we live in.
Thank you so much for your support, trust and dedication to Karmameju Skincare. It means the world to me.”
