So, I am heading back home to Edinburgh for a few months to study. It has felt strange to be back in Stockholm again, but it’s also been fun to see friends, discover the city more and to practice speaking Swedish again. Before I go though, I decided to visit my favourite Eco beauty boutiques and shops in Stockholm, and to write up a little guide for anyone visiting Stockholm or living here. Here is the lowdown of my favourite Eco beauty stockists. :)
I first found this little gem whilst I was at a Christmas market in the area last December. It stocks a good range of health foods and supplies, but also a fab range of organic cosmetics. It has a pretty decent selection of interesting books too, a few on DIY Organic Beauty products actually. I spent quite a while in here mesmerized by all the goodies and felt very warm and welcome in the atmosphere. It is a little bit out of the center of Stockholm, but still worth the visit if you can. It’s also just a 3 minute walk from the metro station.

You’ll find quite a few health food shops in Stockholm – particularly in Södermalm, but what I like about this store in particular is its relatively large selection of Eco beauty cosmetics. They stock a pretty good selection of brands including: Dr. Hauschka and Faith in Nature, and there’s also a lot of small organic beauty brands stocked here, which I like to see. I enjoy discovering new brands and supporting those that are for a good cause. The only problem I found is that it is a pretty small and cramped store. So, not the perfect environment for browsing in. However, don’t let that put you off, it’s definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

Apoteket and High street Stores:
The Apotek stores (pharmacies) usually stock a few organic beauty brands. Typically, IDUN minerals and Estelle & Thild. Most high-street shops usually stock a few organic brands too. One in particular is the french organic cosmetics brand UNE. The department store Åhléns normally sells these too alongside REN and BareMinerals. I also recommend giving the beauty store, Kicks a try whilst you’re there, I found some Burts Bees on sale last year. :D
Last, but certainly not least is my favourite Eco Beauty Store in the whole of Stockholm. It is beautifully decorated and stocked. Whilst just being 1 metro stop away from Central Station! This gorgeous boutique has many fabulous brands including: NVEY Eco, Florascent and much to my surprise, Neals Yard Cosmetics. If there is only one store, you’re going to visit then make sure that it is this. Find more out on their website here.

Thanks for reading guys! I hope you found it useful and will try out some of the stores on the list if you visit Stockholm.
