How it all started
The story about Rosenserien begins some 40 years ago. Laine Nilsson, one of the founders of Rosenserien, worked as a hairdresser and noticed that her skin was not feeling well from the strong permanent and staining fluids that she worked with. The skin on the hands and face became dry, irritated and started to flake off. Laine began to examine the contents of these products and what it was that made her skin react. She saw that there were many different chemicals and also toxic substances in these products. After she examined the content of the skin care products and found the same substances, although in lesser amounts. Laine also discovered that the rules for what might excist in the products for hair and skin, where virtually nonexistent.
Laine Nilsson began to explore options to see if there where products without these synthetic and toxic substances. She found alternatives , and after studying and using other natural products, Laine got ready to develop a separate series. In the early ’80s , she contacted with a friend , Agneta Törnqvist and various chemists in the area and in 1984 where the first products from Rosenserien ready to sell.
Rosenserien products selling where launched by home party and in skin care salons. With the enthusiastic salesman and satisfied customers, Rosenserien where spread rapidly across the country. After a few years started the first health food stores to sell the products.
Rosenserien is today sold in all health food stores and there are nearly 150 Salons and Spas working with the series. There are also a large number of skin care consultants around the country selling Rosenserien products. The product range has been expanded and currently consists of about 40 items, and a number of salon and spa products.
