About us

BAD NORWEGIAN was born after an excursion through South Africa. Nothing takes its toll on the skin quite like extreme lack of sleep, sunlight and stress. Our co-founder and former NATO soldier, Marius, discovered this first hand as he followed wild animals through the open plains.

While searching for some relief for his overworked skin, he had a hard time finding products with focus on natural ingredients, not tested on animals and with no perfume. And even more, nothing stod out.


Back in Norway, the pieces started to fall in place
After teaming up with design friend, Castilñano, they created a brand that represented clean functionality and classic style. This focus can be seen in everything from the naming (Wash Face) and the packaging design, to the ingredients philosophy, namely: vegan and cruelty-free natural ingredients that have a proven effect on the skin.

Skincare you can feel
An important part of the product is the instant effect. Both facial creams contain a tiger balm effect, resulting in a slight tingle when you apply it, giving the skin a wake-up effect in the morning. Products like the Wash Face and Wash Body are boosted with menthol. Resulting in a cold kick after use.

Airless jars
The open jars that you can stick your fingers into are great for one thing: bacterial growth. BAD NORWEGIAN uses an airless jar to eradicate this issue. Press down, swipe and you get the amount you need. Efficient and clean.

Testing on friends
The brand’s value from the start has always been: Do no harm. So they test on their friends and not on animals. The process can take up to a year, with different batches going out to friends who then send their comments back to us. With these comments in mind, a new batch is made. And with that, a new BAD NORWEGIAN experience and product.
