From New York City, a brand with no weaknesses; incredible formulations and handsome branding.
Founded on March 1st, 2004 in New York City's trendy Chelsea neighbourhood; Malin+Goetz, created by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz have modernised traditional apothecary concepts and simplified complicated skincare regimens.
Malin+Goetz products are designed to meet the needs of women and men with sensitive skin by synthesising performance technologies with natural botanicals. Each treatment is effective for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
Not everyone suffers with sensitive skin, unlike co-founder Matthew Malin who suffers from rosacea, eczema, seborrhoea, fragrance allergies and dry skin. However, Mr Malin’s personal battle with his own sensitive skin lead Malin+Goetz along a path of forming a range of products which are suitable for sensitive skin, but for every other skin type too. Sensitive skin, is the benchmark if you like. The results speak for themselves, with a superb range of unisex products- suitable for all.
Equally impressive is the branding including bottle design of Malin+Goetz, which is where Mr Goetz expertise are invaluable- as prior to Malin+Goetz he was Marketing Director at Vitra, a Swiss-based design manufacturer. Clear product names, with remarkable stylish packaging add to the allure of the brand, and improve any bathroom shelf visually.
In further detail, Malin+Goetz brand philosophy centres around a 2-step Balancing System; with pH level 5.5 hydrating Amino Acid-based Cleansers to clean but not over-dry followed by absorbent, pH level 7 Oil-Free Moisturisers blended with nourishing Fatty Acids and therapeutic natural extracts to hydrate throughly but leave no oily residue.
Malin+Goetz is a brand with no weaknesses; incredible formulations, handsome branding and to top it all off the two founders ensure manufacturing and formulating are done locally to their New York City base in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Malin and Goetz personally develop each and every formula with a trusted chemist, whether a long time friend or industry specialist for a specific technology or ingredient expertise.
Niven & Joshua are also pleased to report that Malin+Goetz never and never will test on animals. The brand does not use animals products, but do use animal by-products. No animals are harmed or tested on in the production of their products. Non-vegan products include: Hair Pomade (has lanolin and beeswax), Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer and Vitamin B5 Hand Treatment (honey), and Candles (have beeswax).
