Ecooking’s clean and effective products quickly became Pick N Dazzle girls’ favorites. Vegan cosmetics from Denmark, that give everything a modern woman dreams of - efficiency, without harmful ingredients and in stylish packaging.

And behind all this stays the lovely Tina Søgaard, who invested her own experience and feminine passion in the creation of Ecooking.

We contacted her and she was so kind to give an exclusive interview for Pick N Dazzle readers to learn more about the brand’s history, products, idea and Scandinavian lifestyle.

 

We know from your brand page that you had a personal crisis that changed your skin dramatically. What makes you search away from the biggest beauty brands for a solution?

After I got divorced my skin completely collapsed which caused it to look tired and grey.

Therefore, I wanted to create some creams, serums, and oils that could give my skin a boost. Back then the most important thing was that it had to work – preferably yesterday.

Today, our aim is still to create products that first and foremost deliver results and subsequently we add as many natural and organic ingredients as possible.

 

What was the first product that you made?

The first seven products I created were Peeling Mask, Cleansing Milk, Skin Tonic, Multi Oil, Night Cream, Day Cream, and Super Serum. And then I actually made the Multi Balm long before the other products.

And why your products names are so simple, just Cream, Serum, Mask?

My goal was to create simple and effective products.

Other brands try to come up with all sorts of "interesting" names for their creams and eventually the woman stops understanding them. What could be more comfortable than using a cream, mask and serum without wondering "What was this for ".

 

How did you decide about the bottles? The clean and vintage look makes them feel really natural,eco, and easy

I’m a very visual person and therefore the design of the packaging was also important to me. I think the bottles have a neat and simple design which can decorate any bathroom or kitchen. They are also suitable for reusing as a vase or for other products. Furthermore, it was essential that the bottles are recyclable because we wish to take good care of the environment.

What is your personal beauty routine? Tell us more about your skin, your specifics and how you pamper yourself.

I begin my morning routine by cleansing with cleansing milk, because I enjoy the gentle feeling, the cleansing milk gives. After cleansing milk, I follow up with skin tonic to moisturise and refresh my skin. Then I use Firming Serum, day cream and finish with applying sunscreen to my face.

At night, I use cleansing milk to cleanse my skin and skin tonic to remove dust, dirt, and the rest of my makeup. Afterwards, I apply Super Serum or Vitamin C Serum, which both provide skin with a moisture boost and make my skin glow beautifully. To complete my evening routine, I use night cream.

You are Danish and your Nordic lifestyle is very very popular. We, the rest of the world, are a little bit jealous about the coziness, wellness, and down-to-earth way of Nordic life. What are the top 3 lessons that we can learn from you?

I think it’s very important to pamper yourself occasionally. Once a week – usually on Sundays – I have a spa day at home. Here I use Peeling Mask and Clay Mask to exfoliate and deep cleanse my skin and then Moisturizing Mask to provide my skin with lots of moisture. This is good for my skin and for my well-being. I’m not good at relaxing, but I really enjoy taking long walks with my partner – around ten kilometres – because I think that’s a great way to clear my mind and talk about things that we haven’t had time to talk about during the week. 

We go for a walk once or twice a week, usually at the weekends. But it must be in areas with something beautiful to look at because – as mentioned - I’m a very visual person.

What is your favourite Ecooking product? (I know that this is not an easy choice)

It’s hard to choose because I have many favourites, but I’d have to say the Peeling Mask. All its active ingredients – such as AHAs – can make a difference to your skin and after only using it once, it already shows.
