Merme made in Berlin
Merme Berlin is natural beauty handmade in Berlin! I am in love with Claires beauty products since I recommended them in my VeganBerlin guide. Her beauty products have a minimal ingredient philosophy, that means each ingredients of their beauty products are chosen with the focus only on the raw pureness of plants. Since this month Merme welcomes a new member to the family: a vegan facial collagen serum. It consists of the world's first vegan collagen! Unlike all comparable products, it is produced from vegetable sugar. The serum is available in there online store but also at Kauf Dich Glücklich!
