Our history

History is a solid basis for innovative expertise

Annemarie the pioneer

“If I can’t eat it, I won’t put it on my skin.” – This quality claim guided Annemarie Lindner when she started producing effective natural cosmetics in the 1950s. She was decades ahead of her time. Careful handling of natural resources and the constant search for the hidden potential of nature have been integral components of the company philosophy ever since. Above all, a history of courage, diligence, and unconditional passion for natural cosmetics are behind ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND.

How it all began

Annemarie Lindner had problem skin and subjected herself to several treatments from dermatologists, some of which were painful. But they only improved her skin temporarily. She received a herbal mask treatment once when she was on vacation, and her skin gradually improved. This inspired Annemarie Lindner to become a professional cosmetologist and produce her own care products.

2012

CSE certification

Börlind not only wanted to certify its products. All company activities would also be subjected to ongoing control. For this reason, the company decided to apply for CSE (Certified Sustainable Economics) certification. These guidelines go well beyond the usual criteria for natural cosmetics certification because they include the review and verification of the entire company and its underlying socio-ecological philosophy and not just the products.
