INTRODUCTION

Rubus Chamaemorus or Cloudberry as it is more commonly known is a rare golden berry that can be found deep in the Nordic marshes and wet meadows, growing in damp and freezing conditions and can survive temperatures as low as minus 40°C. During the summer months of 24 hours sunlight, the berries flourish; remarkably, the resilient berries withstand the harsh conditions of the long dark winter months too. These harmonious qualities give the Cloudberry its supreme power, with a unique composition that can be harnessed to give enlightening benefits to your skin.
