Urtekram was founded in Copenhagen in 1972 and in 2017, Urtekram was named Denmark's most sustainable brand by the Sustainable Brand Index. Our production is located in scenic Mariager in Jutland in Denmark, and here we produce our natural and ecologically certified beauty products for all needs. Today, our products are in stores throughout Europe and large parts of the rest of the world.

Urtekram was founded as early as 1972, at a time when pioneering spirit, a sense of belonging and environmental awareness, was emerging. Organic products were just an idealistic matter of the heart for the few. However, this was the beginning of the journey, that later would make the whole of Denmark - and Scandinavia - much sustainable and conscious.

The visionaries began the journey with a small spice shop in the heart of Copenhagen. Here they sold products, focusing on a natural, simple and clean lifestyle. The entrepreneurial spirit quickly took hold of them and soon the company Urtekram was founded. During the 1970s and 1980s, knowledge about Urtekram developed slowly but surely and spread beyond the small circle of early environmental enthusiasts.

Our production is located in scenic Mariager in Jutland, Denmark. Here we produce organic foods in the categories processed food and frozen food, care products, as well as products intended for people with allergies, including lactose and gluten free products.

URTEKRAM is a name full of meaning:

URTE is the Danish word for "herbs" and is therefore representative of the many plant ingredients used in the brand's product formulas.
KRAM refers to the origins of the company, a small health food shop featuring herbs and natural foods located in Copenhagen. The word KRAM also means "warm hug" in Danish.

URTEKRAM's success story began in 1972 when "Urtekræmmer" (an old term used to describe a merchant selling herbs and spices) was founded in Copenhagen. It was a kind of health food store, in which the idea of eco-friendliness, sustainability, organic and fair trade quality prevailed. It was extremely innovative at the time because very few people were focused on these concepts.

Success quickly followed and the demand became so great that in 1989 the company moved to Danish Nodjutland to produce its own products, where it is still located to this day.

URTEKRAM is one of the best known manufacturers of spices, food and cosmetics in Scandinavia.


Organic Cosmetics


URTEKRAM organic cosmetics are of exceptional high quality.

All URTEKRAM cosmetics are certified by the Vegan Society and are therefore guaranteed without ingredients of animal origin such as beeswax. In addition, they also comply with one of the strictest organic certifications in the cosmetic industry, the COSMOS ORGANIC standard by Ecocert. This standard stipulates that at least 98% of the ingredients must be of natural origin. URTEKRAM often exceeds this standard whereby 100% of the ingredients incorporated in the formulas are of natural origin.

Of course, due to strict and self-imposed guidelines, products are also free from:

parabens
silicones
mineral oils
synthetic dyes, perfumes and preservatives

Throughout the production process, URTEKRAM places great importance on respecting the environment, people and nature.

Plant-based packaging


In addition to natural and sustainable ingredients, URTEKRAM has been offering an alternative to conventional packaging for some time. The packaging is now composed of plant-based raw materials.

All our packaging is plant-based and made of sugar cane plastic. The advantage of using sugar cane is that it is a renewable raw material that absorbs CO2 from the air. After harvest, the juice is extracted from the sugar cane. With the remaining product, i.e. what is left, it is possible to produce the alcohol that is the foundation of the production of plant-based plastics. In this way, we use a renewable resource at the same time as the remaining product is used. For every ton of sugar cane, two tons of CO2 are composed from the air.

This is waste resulting from the advanced processing of sugar cane. This waste, which is otherwise no longer used, becomes the basis of "plant-based plastics", through various processing methods. The packaging can therefore be recycled.

The use of this plant-based plastic is a planet-friendly alternative because there is, so to speak, an inverted "greenhouse effect". One tonne of sugarcane absorbs about two tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. Since it is also processed waste, there is no impact on food production. URTEKRAM works hard to modify the packaging of its entire range.

You may already know that ecology is a real matter of the heart at Urtekram. However, did you know that we also work actively for a better and more sustainable world? This applies to the entire chain, from the individual grower to how we package and transport our goods.

We have signed both the Plastics Initiative and the Transport Initiative, and in 2019, we gradually switched to using plant-based plastics in all our skin and hair care packaging.

Less production waste

We always work to minimize our waste in production. In cases where it still occurs, for example when labels end up wrong and the products cannot be sold, we donate the goods to aid organizations in Denmark.

Solar cells and biogas

We take a number of actions to reduce our energy consumption. Here are some examples:

Our Danish warehouse building has solar cells for electricity production
We buy green electricity from hydropower
Our warehouse uses biogas for heating
We have lowered the temperature in our production to reduce energy consumption

All ingredients in Urtekram skin and hair care products are of natural origin and the products are organic certified and vegan.

All packaging of paper is FSC-certified, which ensures that we use paper from sustainable forests and that the forest cycle stays intact.

Organic enthusiasts

The pioneering spirit still infiltrates everything we do. We have always fight the battle for a more sustainable world and for products that meet our values, and we will continue to do so. Even though we are much bigger now than the time in 1972 when it all started, the innovation, commitment and passion is still the same.

Hari care


Choose natural hair care for your hair type. Our range includes shampoo and conditioner for normal hair, dry hair and fine hair, but also shampoo for dandruff and irritated scalp. You can choose a hair care range without perfume or one of our other range, each with its own unique scent. All with inspiration from nature.

By using the right haircare products, products that fulfill your personal needs with features tailored to your hair type, you give your hair maximum success for natural care. Ask yourself the following questions:

Hair type. Do you have normal, oily or dry and damage hair?
How do you treat your hair? Do you dye, bleach it or leave it completely natural?
How do you style your hair? Not at all, do you blow-dry it or use straighteners?
Once you have defined your hair type and your needs, you choose the right products. We have products for most hair types, Intense Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner for normal hair, Ultimate Repair Shampoo & Conditioner for dry and damaged hair, Color Preserve Shampoo & Conditioner for colored hair and Maximum Shine Shampoo & Conditioner for hair that is lifeless and needs moisture and extra shine. If your hair is extra dry, needs care, and counteracts frizz, try Coconut Hair Oil with a blend of almond, jojoba and broccoli seed oil.

How to wash your hair?

You should wash your hair in lukewarm water because hot water dries out both your hair and scalp.
Do not use too much shampoo; a small dosage (like a 1-penny approx) is enough, no matter how long your hair is.
Conditioner should only be applied in the lengths, avoid getting too close to the scalp.

Why use natural hair care products?

A "regular" shampoo contains ingredients that make it "too effective" and drain hair and scalp of dirt, but also of lots of moisture. Natural hair care products are gentler and ensure that the scalp and hair retain their natural moisture balance and do not become dry and "frizzy".

During the transition from regular hair care products to natural, the hair may feel unbalanced, become a little greasy and not feel like it is getting clean. It will happen! You need to give your hair and scalp time to restore the natural moisture balance and get used to it before the result is good.
