Swedish beauty brands are recognised as being innovative, high-quality, trendy & beautifully packaged – whilst often being packed full of natural ingredients that are good for the body, and the planet too. Even Korea, famous for its revolutionising beauty innovations and with the metropolis Seoul named as “the beauty capital of the world” by Conde Nast, has got its eyes wide-open to Scandinavian beauty.
Here are the six Swedish beauty brands that we at Goodwille tip to be a huge hit in 2021;
FOREO is a creative Swedish beauty-tech brand using design and innovation to create ground-breaking products. Their first product, back in 2013 was LUNA, a sonic and silicone facial cleansing brush that took the industry by storm, and is now used by millions of people around the world.
They have since released multiple products including the ISSA, a super-soft, sonic-powered wonder-brush that challenged the never-changing electric toothbrush industry. Keep an eye on their product range as they bring new & exciting products to market!
