Organic Series: Organic Beauty Spa and Store in Munich

Organic Series: Organic Beauty Spa and Store in Munich

It’s been a few weeks since I had my facial at the OrganicSeries – natural organic cosmetic Spa in Munich, but I still have found memories of the treatment. The spa is centrally located on Fraunhoferstrasse in Munich’s Gärtnerplatzviertel. I just walked past it one day, not recognizing the brand. So I made some research and talked to the Munich CEO about OrganicSeries. This is what I found: the brand is from Poland and is mainly used in spas. It contains 98% certified organic active ingredients. Additionally, every product is 100% natural and…

So look out for mineral sunscreen with active ingredients Titanium Dioxide and/or Zinc Oxide. Next weekend I’m off to Bali for some surfing and boat tripping. I’m so…

The name says it all: the store offers a luxurious selection of…
