Manufaktura is an exceptional 100% Czech concept of brand name stores with its own original cosmetic products and accessories for unique home spa.
Why home spa?
We live in a fast-moving world, in stress, tension and rush. A pleasant rite of home spa accompanied by a lit candle, scented bath, refreshing shower, massage, a cup of tea or another way of pampering yourself helps forget daily problems, reach physical and mental relief and simply relax for a while. Formulae of the original and high-quality products exploit beneficial effects of traditional Czech natural ingredients – Czech beer and hop extract, Carlsbad thermal spring salt, wine and grapevine extract, apricot, daisy and other fruits and herbs typical of their country.
The content of original ingredients – Czech beer, wine, Carlsbad thermal spring salt, healing herbs and fruits from Czech gardens, orchards and meadows – has been always characteristic of their cosmetic products. Later on, the whole cosmetic concept was integrated with the idea of home spa based on the world famous Czech spa tradition, which was also a reaction to the contemporary fast-moving times bereft of calm, ease and rest.
Manufaktura Beer Cosmetics
Beer cosmetics is based on centuries-old tradition of the Czech beer, which thanks to its exceptional quality, is generally recognized as the best in the world. The unique climatic effects for growing hops, experience of their brewers and traditional production procedures contribute significantly to the unrepeatable quality and taste of the Czech beer.
Beer is a unique source of vitamin B, trace elements and minerals, which significantly support skin regeneration and boost its resistance to adverse environmental effects. The hops clean, calms and softens skin. These evident soothening effects inspired Manufaktura to produce original beer cosmetics range. All the products contain the pure Czech beer, brewer’s yeast or hops extract and are accompanied by delicious bitter-sweet aroma.
Their beer cosmetics contain exceptional genuine beer – Ferdinand, pale lager 11° Max. There are several reasons why this beer was chosen:
- This beer is brewed by 100-year-old unchanged methods in an exceptionally beautiful Ferdinand brewery in Benešov – a tradition since 1897.
- It is made by the typical method of fermentation in open vessels in lagering cellars without use of modern fastening technologies,
- and brewed from prime quality Czech ingredients guaranteeing unique quality.
I recently got my hands on a travel pack of three of their most popular beer cosmetics – the shower gel, the hair shampoo and the hand care cream.
