Our collab is here! For this, we've teamed up with genius Finnish natural cosmetic maven Laponie, to create the Birch Happiness Mist! We have given life to the gorgeous birch wood Mist-capsule - which can also be used to store e.g. pens or makeup brushes - while Laponie formulated the product itself.
So what is the Happiness Mist? Well, it's a light facial spray that leaves skin feeling happy. The Mist contains Finnish Albatrellus Confluens mushroom extract, which is proven to provide zen-like soothing and also anti-aging effects when applied on skin. Finnish birch sap and tree-derived xylitol sugar hydrate and tone skin, while natural ectoin and liquorice extract soothe and tackle irritation and redness.
Launched in 2018, Helsinki-based Laponie of Scandinavia creates minimalist and no-nonsense skincare for sensitive and problem skin. This means just a few simple and combinable products with a minimum of ingredients that care for sensitive and problem skin gently and effectively.
All Laponie products are made without added fragrance or any fragrance at all, with vegan and plant-based ingredients, and are developed in Laponie’s own Helsinki lab. Laponie’s sensitive and problem skinned owners, founder and CEO Kristina and chemist Jaana, test all products on themselves.
Laponie manufactures all of its products in Finland. The entire Laponie range bears the Finnish Allergy-, Skin- and Asthma Federation's Allergy-label.

|Why it works on sensitive skin
We've used a minimum of ingredients - only ten go into the Happiness Birch Mist. (The right kind of) fewer ingredients mean less irritation.
Close eyes and spray on face after cleansing, before serums, oils or creams. Dry skin? Apply two or more layers of the Mist for extra hydration.
This product contains
albatrellus confluens mushroom extractThe Albatrellus Confluens mushroom is an edible mushroom, also known as Northern truffle.
On skin, it alleviates neurogenic irritation, instantly soothes and protects irritated
skin, and protects against the effects of infra-red radiation.
birch sapBirch sap, or birch water or juice, is an edible liquid tapped directly from birch trees,
and and has been used to treat different ailments for centuries. On skin, it hydrates,
tones and firms, thanks to its rich content of minerals, oligo-elements and sugar.
ectoinEctoin is a small, natural stress-protection molecule, a so-called extremolyte.
Extremolytes protect extremophilic micro-organisms and plants from the extreme conditions
of their habitats like salt lakes, hot springs, permanent ice or deserts. On skin, ectoin
provides long-term moisturisation, diminishes skin roughness and repairs the skin barrier,
and is also an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant.
liquorice root extractLiquorice root extract hydrates and condition skin. It improves the appearance of dry or
damaged skin by reducing flaking and restoring suppleness and possesses anti-allergic and
anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also effective against hyperpigmentation and helps in
reducing the redness and irritation associated with rosacea, psoriasis, and acne.
xylitolXylitol is a pre-biotic sugar that hydrates and conditions skin and supports the skin’s
microbiome. It has potent anti-bacterial properties and provides a cooling, soothing
effect on skin. Xylitol is derived from hardwood, in this case birch, as an upcycled
waste stream from paper production.
