Things To Do In Berlin #8: Green Beauty Shopping!

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.

Ça va, Savue?

A new player is in town!
Founded by Swantje and Annika van Uehm, SAVUE is like an ingredient-savvy, artsy, well-travelled and fashionable friend that somehow turned into being an online shop and a showroom. Natural and organic luxury and niche brands, this is what to expect here. In the Friedrichshain showroom (by appointment!), a team of stylists and make-up artists will help the client find her perfect Holy Grail Oil Serum or the perfect her lips but better organic and vegan lippie or a luxurious, tox-free fragrance to stand out in style or…
