Each soap, shampoo bar and lip balm is made in her home on this charming island. The story of Lundegaardens began by coincidence, when Helle Nørrevang’s daughter wanted to make a personal Christmas gift for her grandmother. Together, they ended up making her a soap, and Nørrevang had such a pleasant time making the soap that she decided to make more. Soon, she had a blossoming business with soaps, shampoo and conditioner bars, a line of baby products and much more. “I’m inspired by the beautiful nature here on Sejerø, which shines through in every product. Since day one, it has been very important to me that my products are sustainable, honest, organic when possible, and kind to both our skin and the planet,” says Nørrevang, founder of Lundegaardens.

Nature has everything we need,” she says. Recently, Lundegaardens also launched a line of baby products with organic sea

Lundegaardens has even got a range of various bamboo products, too, made in collaboration with a sustainable family business.
