If you’re a green beauty maven and live in or visit Berlin, you can’t miss this newly opened monobrand boutique and these two niche & luxury showrooms.
Do you know Ponyhütchen?
This Swiss-based vegan beauty brand founded by a natural born Berliner Hendrike Grubert is best known for its handmade, lavishly scented deodorants, body butters, solid shampoos – the list is nearly endless though – made from organic raw materials and presented to the world in cutesy, retro-looking packaging.
Fun fact: the name is inspired by a sassy heroine from Erich Kästner’s kids’ novel Emil and the Detectives.
Since October 2016 the otherwise online-based business has a Berlin flagship located in a very hip hood named Kollwitzkiez (cole-vi-ts-kee-ts), Straßburger Straße 37, 10405 Berlin which is within five minutes walk from U2 station Rosa-Luxembourg-Platz.
The founding for the flagship opening was secured via a crowdfounding project; the visitor can expect Berlin-exclusive specials, like a limetree scented product range. Lovely detail: rather of packing your newly purchased Ponyhütchen goodies into a paper or, Heavens forbid, plastic bag, you receive a delightful cake shop style handle box.
