Our founder, Gunilla Nilsson Ross, received her skincare credentials in 1962; she was born in Sweden;educated in skincare in England, Sweden, and the United States. Gunilla moved to the United States in 1974. Unable to find the botanically based products in America similar to those in Sweden, she started her own organic skin care company in 1987. For over 29 years Gunilla of Sweden® products were only sold to licensed skin care professionals.
Now, semi-retired and in her mid-seventies, Gunilla is proof that when it comes to having great skin, there is no better way to slow the aging process and clear the symptoms of acne better than using high concentrations or botanical nutrients directly to the skin instead of using water as a main ingredient.
In a world where skin care is mostly water with minimal nutrients, hydroponically grown aloe and our proprietary clay are a significant departure from the norm. Gunilla of Sweden®. products contain the high concentrations of critical nutrients that your skin (the largest organ of your body) so seldom ever gets with common water based skin care. You will find few skin care brands with more botanical nutrients and less harsh chemicals. Gunilla of Sweden® is a different kind of skin care company.
Starting almost 30 years ago we were growing botanical ingredients organically and hydroponically because we could infuse more nutrients into those plants. These plants are hand-picked and planted individually in large temperature controlled greenhouses with no need for pesticides. Organic plant matter has more nutrients for your skin than plain water. The environmental advantage of hydroponics was only a positive side effect.
The majority of skincare brands have products that are formulated with a water base. Water is abundant and inexpensive, so from a manufacturer's point of view, that makes it an excellent base. However, what about the perspective of those who use the product?
For years, the way skincare products have been marketed has led consumers to believe that water based products are beneficial to the skin by helping to hydrate it. There is one simple fact that makes this theory false: skin cannot absorb water. If it did, we would physically be unable to swim. While there is a small amount of water that actually does get absorbed into the keratin layer of skin (reason for wrinkles after a bath), no hydration occurs.
The task of the base ingredient in skincare products is to deliver all other ingredients to the skin so that the necessary nutrients can enrich the area of focus and the product can do what it's intended to do. While the other ingredients are present, the water stops them from actually absorbing into the skin because of that same simple fact that was stated earlier: skin cannot absorb water. Due to the limitations of using water as a base ingredient, the product cannot deliver all that it has promised.
For this reason, aloe serves as an extraordinary therapeutic base for skincare products. If administered in the appropriate concentrations of the highest quality, results obtained are going to be exceptional.

Many skin care products on the market today are non-therapeutic because they are mostly just water. Conversely, Gunilla of Sweden® products are based on our rare nutrient infused aloe that is hand planted, hydroponically greenhouse grown and organic or our proprietary all natural clay. Gunilla of Sweden® products contain very high levels of nutrients since they are based on either our exclusive super aloe or micronized nutrient rich organic clay. Because of our plant based ingredients, our skin care products are therapeutic by their very nature. Our products can help to clear skin, moisturize, minimize scarring and help the heal process. This is why Gunilla of Sweden® is a favorite skin care line for some of the best skin care professionals in the world.
Medical Grade skincare at home and at a lower cost
The first ingredient will usually tell you if it’s a mass market or professional skin care brand. With a $5 skin care product you will notice that it's mostly water, there is not so much room left for plant based oil-free nutrient content. At Gunilla of Sweden® it's our exclusive hydroponically greenhouse grown aloe and heat treated, micronized, low sand content clay thats key to our product effectiveness, that and our customer education through our licensed customer service. Often Gunilla products are lower in price than department store products because you are paying for ingredients instead of high rent department store space, we sell direct with no distributers and no TV commercials or celebrities royalties. Investing in High-Content Organic™ medical grade skin care like Gunilla of Sweden® is about the best thing you can do your skin.
