“My Green Beauty Favourites” – Hendrike Grubert’s Streamlined Skincare Picks

Sundays are for sneaking into gorgeous people’s bathrooms to discover their trusted green beauty products and routines.

Of all series run on BEAUTYCALYPSE.com, it’s Green Beauty Faves that I really enjoy the most. Sharing with the world my own thoroughly researched and tested favourites all the time, I am just as curious as everybody else when it comes to other peeps’ bathroom cabinets and beauty bags! Let’s see if you discover something new today, shall we?

Meet Hendrike, the founder of Ponyhütchen Zürich

Berlin girl and passionate hobby baker Hendrike Grubert founded Ponyhütchen back in 2008, as a response to a lack of natural skincare with a more playful, girly style.

Quickly earning itself a following among European rockabellas, vegan beauties and natural beauty mavens with a playful range of daintily packaged face and body care products and a combination of homemade and retro look, the Switzerland-based start-up focussed on a strong online presence.

In 2016 however, after successfully running a crowdfunding campaign, the brand have opened their first brick and mortar in Hendrike’s hometown.

Today the brand offer natural deos, body gels and butters/ mousses, shower oils and shower milks, 2-phase body sprays, lip butters, a range of face care products, and low waste solid formulas: a hand cream and a shampoo – gloriously scented as well as fragrance-free.


  • “PonyHütchen Pretty & Pure Skincare Oil – My beloved daily skincare to save my skin from cold & dry winter weather.
  • PonyHütchen Pretty & Pure Deocreme – I am not leaving my house without using my unscented Deocreme that protects me every day.
  • Lipfein Vegan Lipbalm – The cold wind of winter damages my lips, making them dry, cracked or chapped. My Lipfein Balm saves me during the cold, every day.
  • Alviana Satin Secret Beauty Oil – Definitely one of the best multipurpose products based on bio argan oil which I use for body, hair and face.

“What I am still missing on the market are good and affordable ‘green’ hairstyling products.”


“My BEAUTYCALYOSE favourite?
Pale? It’s Not A Flaw – It’s a Feature! definitely spoke to my heart while reading it because pale is beautiful!”

Short and to the point, and a great line-up of favourites.
Thank you, Hendrike!
