CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE is the first European Paleo Skincare brand. Before developping their own skincare formula, the two founders, Benjamin Ma and Carl-Philipp Espelmann paid much attention to skincare due to their hobbies and profession (swimming, mountain sports and working in a laboratory). In 2016 the two founders decided to use their pharmaceutical expert knowledge to create an own handcare formula.
The Goal: Developping a real handbalm consisting of natural ingredients only. The travels of the two founders through Latin America have risen awareness for sustainable cultivation of raw materials. The task was very clear: the formula should not only be free from mineral oil and all kind of chemical emulsifyers and preservatives but also free from palm oil.
The idea of CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE was born. The two founders developed a matching formula in the "kitchen lab". Since both of them are convinced of the paleo diet and the benefits thereof for body and mind they coordinated the selection of ingredients with the German Society for Paleo Nutrition (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Paläo-Ernährung).
In December 2016 the registration of the trademark CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE was submitted. The major assignment in 2017 was to find a manufacturer to realise the establishment of the brand CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE. All preparations necessary were done by August 2017 and the company MAESCO GmbH & Co. KG was founded in Innsbruck, Austria in August 2017.
The short history, the expierence and the know-how of the founders reflect the company's philosophy:
- organic cosmetic products, so pure you could even eat them. Free from doubtful ingredients. This is the brand's promise to responsible and well informed customers. This promise is underlined by the founders' idea of transparency. The products of CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE are listed on codecheck.info to give every customer the chance to check the products. Furthermore the handbalm and the bodylotion are NATRUE ORGANIC COSMETICS certified.
-Sustainability: Think global, act local! CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE stands for high quality organic skincare made in Austria. To keep the products' ways short and to broaden space for inclusion in business the company decided to cooperate with the Lebenshilfe Tirol, a non-profit organisation with the aim to support handicapped people and include them into a working life. During their travels the two founders recognised that responsible corporate governance is the only way to go for a fairer world. 10 % of the revenue will be saved for social and ecological projects in the countries where the raw materials are grown and harvested. Of course the products are cruelty free. True organic skincare. Paleo style!
The CREAMS OF THE STONE AGE handbalm is available in the webshop since November 2017 and the bodylotion arrives in December 2017. Find the products on www.creamsofthestoneage.com. The company is fully focussed on the market in Germany and Austria at the moment.
The founders are looking forward to their first full business year in 2018 and of course to their first huge business trade fair participation at VIVANESS 2018.
