Welcome to SkinChakra®

Your first reference for cosmetic specialty ingredients and know-how of natural and organic cosmetics

About us

After being active in cosmetic formulation and product design for about 20 years, we realized a great need for specialty cosmetic ingredients in retail as we gradually moved from conventional to organic and natural cosmetics. It was almost impossible (even in Germany) to get access to reliable sources for ingredients used in organic cosmetics (except a few common oils and butters) unless one directly orders the ingredients by suppliers (with a min. oder quantity varying between 15-200 kg). As you can imagine it is out of question for students of the skin care formulation, small manufacturers, small formulation laboratories, DIY crafters and artisanal manufacturers of organic skincare to purchase and stock such quantities of raw material. This is how SkinChakra online shop was borned. With the aim of delivering high quality ingredients as well as know-how and information to a huge group of interested students, artisanal manufacturers and DIY crafters.
In July 2012 we started our online shop delivering only and only in Germany at first. In about 5 years and with the huge support of our customers, we're now delivering cosmetic ingredients in more than 45 countries in the world.
SkinChakra® lab
Here we are with a small but efficient team, not only supplying our customers with the most innovative ingredients in organic and natural cosmetics, but helping them in their formulations as well as product development and design. Each month, we provide hundreds of students and formulators with natural preservatives, innovative emulsifiers, plant extracts, oils, butters and active ingredients, publish sample formulation and answer to their technical questions via our communication channels and social media. We are proud to have repeating customers around the whole world from New Zealand and Australia to Canada, building a long-term relationship with our customers and becoming involved in their product designs and upcoming projects.
