Sun protection is the product that most of our retailers and consumers have requested from me over time, and as a product developer in the skincare industry, the SUN range has also been the most difficult challenge to solve. Because how do you crack the code on what I haven't been able to find on the skin care shelves myself?
Karmameju Skincare is a Danish range of bioactive and aromatherapeutic skincare products. We develop skincare for the face and body with clinically proven ingredients and 100% natural fragrance.
The skin is the body's largest organ. It must be kept active and healthy, and it must be taken care of. Our product development is always centered around protecting, stimulating and optimising. Our mission is to improve your skin and to transform your skincare routine into a wellness ritual.
Karmameju Skincare is based on nature's potent and bioactive ingredients. The formulations are a hybrid between natural, dynamic plant oils and clinically proven, high performance extracts.

Karmameju's products have been developed in close collaboration between Mette Skjærbæk and our two primary production sites: In England with our British perfumer and laboratory, and at our sustainability certified, organic raw material producer and laboratory in Italy. Both manufacturers share the same respect and sense of responsibility towards nature as we do, and together we always work towards transcending natural skin care with modern biotechnology, so that the best and safest results are achieved for the skin.
Karmameju Skincare products are all safety approved and meet all requirements under European Cosmetics Regulation.
Our WE USE symbol indicates the ethos behind our product development in Karmameju Skincare. We use organic ingredients where possible, and we always use 100% natural fragrances.
To me, skincare is skinfood. Absorbed by the body, assimilated by the organs. Bioactive, aromatherapeutic skincare is my skinfood of choice.

When you choose Karmameju
/ CLINICALLY PROVEN INGREDIENTS
/ NATURAL ART OF PERFUMERY
/ HIGH CONTENT OF ACTIVE INGREDIENTS
/ AROMATHERAPEUTIC EFFECT
Each bullet point above is described below. The essence of Karmameju is the integrity of each product. We want you to know exactly why you’re choosing Karmameju.
/ Clinically proven ingredients
We use the finest selection of clinically proven ingredients in Karmameju Skincare – this is the consumer’s guarantee of optimal effect and visible results. We always use these exclusive ingredients in the dose documented – and often higher.
For example, in our face cream, we have increased the content of our hydrolysed Hyaluronic Acid to double the amount documented in the in vivo* test, because we want the customer to achieve impressive results from using Karmameju’s products.
An in vivo test measures the effect on the skin based on a number of different parameters. It measures, for example, whether the ingredient raises moisture levels, reduces redness, smoothes fine lines, is hyaluron-stimulating, collagen-stimulating, antimicrobial and protects against pollution, and so on.
*In vivo (Latin: in life) is a term used in biology and medicine referring to experiments carried out on a living organism. In Karmameju’s case, on human skin.
/ Natural art of perfumery
The scents you enjoy in Karmameju Skincare range are always 100% natural with both skin-improving and holistic benefits. The Karmameju fragrances have been developed in collaboration between Mette Skjærbæk and our two primary production sites: at our British perfumery and laboratory in England, and at our organic ingredient producer and laboratory in Italy.
We love fragrance, and that’s why Karmameju Skincare is an aromatherapeutic skincare range. To us, the choice between synthetic perfumes and natural fragrances is simple. We choose precious, dynamic and natural fragrances for our skincare over inactive synthetic aroma molecules manufactured in a laboratory. We trust nature and wish to pass on the many benefits offered by natural fragrances to the consumer. Both natural and synthetic fragrances are perfume.
Our fragrances are blended in synergy, where the different aromas enhance one another to produce a unique combined effect. Each fragrance is based on the base, middle and top notes in perfumery, as the combination makes for a deep, intoxicating and complete fragrance experience.
/ High content of active ingredients
It is a key matter to Karmameju to use a high content of active ingredients. This goes for both the clinically proven ingredients we use and the many other dynamic bioactives used in Karmameju Skincare.
Skincare is a question of trust in every way. The consumer shows trust in the manufacturers whenever they choose to buy a product, and it is essential for us always to live up to this valuable trust. We encourage consumers to ask questions about the products they buy and learn to read ingredient lists. In doing so, they can find out what’s in the product concerned.
The list of active ingredients in Karmameju’s products is long. Under each product, you can click on the drop-down menu ACTIVE INGREDIENTS and read about all the exclusive ingredients and their properties. We want the consumers to know exactly what is in our products. Therefore, each and every ingredient in the products is listed here on the website, in the drop-down menu under each product.
By making smaller quantities, we can maintain fresh products without high doses of preservatives. We develop our formulas in a way that naturally minimizes the need for preservatives, emulsifiers and surfactants. These do not have a beneficial effect on the skin as such but are functional ingredients to make a formula perform well and to be stable.
/ Aromatherapeutic effect
Aromatherapy is an essential and important part of Karmameju’s DNA. We work with aromatherapy because the exquisite, exclusive scents have a unique and holistic effect that both affects our mental well-being and improves the condition of the skin.
Essential oils are the foundation of aromatherapy. The oils are extremely effective and incredibly concentrated with a highly complex chemistry as each oil consists of hundreds of unique compounds. Aromatherapy works through the skin thanks to its small molecular size. This way, the skin is able to absorb nature’s potent plant extracts which help promote balance, harmony and regeneration.
In the world of medicine, essential oils have been used for centuries to kill bacteria, fungi and viruses. They stimulate the nerves and aid tissue repair. They promote harmony and balance and can create a particular feeling or mood. The oils can affect our state of mind as they can make us more positive, relaxed, energetic, focused and much more besides.
