Did you know?
Barnängen means childrens´ flower field in Swedish.
There’s a word every Swedish person knows: lagom. Although it seems simple, it has the powerful ability to describe a whole lifestyle. It’s a sense of feel-good balance:
Not too big, not too small.
Not too slow, not too fast.
Not too much, not too little.
In other words? Just right.
We believe in balance and in a world with so many limits we refuse to settle for one- dimensional. We come from Stockholm, a place where nature and tradition, city life and progressiveness all intersect.
Not too urban, not too rural.
Not too busy, not too calm.
Lagom is Swedish for the center of balance, the happy medium, the ”just right“ sweet spot, the choice not to choose.
We fuse Nordic-inspired ingredients and the Swedish aesthetic to create products that truly reflect lagom.
Rich as well as light.
Energizing as well as relaxing.
Nourishing as well as refreshing.
Moisturizing as well as long lasting.
Intensive as well as soft.
We believe that beauty comes from when you feel “just right”—confident, authentic, and balanced.
This is our mission, to provide balanced care for a beautifully balanced skin.
