HAVU cosmetics
WHY CHOOSE HAVU? What you get is beautiful and natural. Quality cosmetics can also be natural cosmetics. We want to inspire cosmetic brands to invest in ingredients that are good for nature and the skin. At the same time, we hope to spark a discussion about the safety and production of cosmetics. We believe that natural cosmetics is the future. We want to develop, improve our products and grow our product family. We are open to all feedback. Our lipsticks contain only natural waxes and oils and no additional perfumes or preservatives. The colouring agents in our products are commonly used in natural cosmetics (iron oxides, titanium oxide and ultramarines). The oils are Cosmos Organic certified, and the shea butter is Soil Association certified. The lipstick container is made from common alder and aspen and the lipstick mechanism is made from biodegradable PLA (polylactide). The lipstick container can be disposed of as bio-waste after use. BEHIND THE PRODUCT AND THE TEAM: HAVU is run by Tatu and Lumi. Already at university, we became interested in entrepreneurship and making our ideas into a reality. It took us a lot of effort to get the business up and running, and we got help from numerous friends, acquaintances and even strangers. This sense of community and doing things together has stuck with us ever since. It’s fun doing the things you like with people you like! We hope this feeling is also transmitted through our products. WHAT WE VALUE THE MOST: Quality, aesthetics, naturalness, northernness. LUMI MAUNUVAARA: CEO and Co-Founder “I wanted to create something genuine of my own. To combine Finnish design and my personal interest in natural cosmetics in the same product. Havu is my first enterprise. It stems from my old idea and my discontent with the superficiality of the cosmetic industry. I hope you like your product!” TATU FONTELL: Co-Founder ”My interest in chemistry and the business world began already in high school. Transforming HAVU from an idea into a company has been a lot of fun! The best thing about it is that we have been able to make the HAVU brand into something we identify with and work with some amazing people. I hope our passion is transmitted to you through our products.”
