Launched in 2004 by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz, New York skin care label (MALIN+GOETZ) started out as a small family-owned shop and quickly grew into an international apothecary with worldwide distribution, although development and manufacturing remains local. Their philosophy is based on modernizing traditional concepts of skin care, focusing on sensitive skin, and adding performance value to their items by creating easy multi-tasking products. Advocates of a simplified two step cleansing and moisturizing regime for optimal pH balance, (MALIN+GOETZ) develops formulas that don’t contain unnecessary detergents, colorants and synthetic fragrances. Gentle, natural ingredients are used in conjunction with modern scientific processes to achieve maximum performance and as little irritation to the skin as possible. The result is a line of skin products and candles that feel and smell natural, and causes no aggravation to sensitive skin.
