We are a lifestyle brand offering natural skin care products and thriving tips. The passion behind Norveda is working with plants and supporting people in their healing journeys.
I'm Linn Amalie and I started this company in 2017 as part of my master's thesis. I had identified the need for an effective, natural deodorant for people with sensitive skin - and made it my mission to create a solution. You can read more about The Deodorant in this journal; how I prototyped my way to a solution.
When I moved to the U.S. for college in 2011, all the new stressors triggered a severe case of cystic acne. I spent 1-2 years on chemical peels and expensive skin care products, which made my skin more sensitive and never completely cleared the acne. Taking strong pharmaceuticals wasn't an option for me; I became determined to heal the root of the problem, naturally.
At the root was hormonal imbalance. Story will continue soon....
“Minimalistic is used to describe something that is stripped down to its most essential elements or uses only what is needed” - dictionary.com
I created a simple & effective product line because I was tired of a cluttered bathroom and toiletry bag.
I was also frustrated with clusterfuck of marketing terms used to convince you that you need a 5+ step skincare line to heal acne. I had discovered that skincare was much simpler and that it is mainly from within.
I hope you enjoy my creations, and that they can aid your healing journey.
