Helt Rein - Natural skincare from the Finnmark Plateau
The reindeers move over the Finnmark Plateau, between winter and summer pastures. Some herds cross the fjords to get to the summer pastures out on the Islands, others wander over huge mountains ranges to get to the coast where the summer pastures are located. The life of the reindeer is reflected through the eight seasons of the reindeer herder; The summer grazing lands by the coast, the slaughtering in the fall, moving to the winter pastures on the Plateau, calving in the spring and moving back to the summer pastures again.
The Sámi constantly follow the reindeer herds, and through hundreds of years they have adapted to the environment and the use of the reindeer. The meat and fat was used for cooking. Hoofs were also cooked and eaten, and fat / oil that floated was taken care of and used of those having different skin problems. If someone got burnt, the fat/oil of the hoof was the best medicine, because it was absorbed quickly.
More people are struggling with sensitive or dry skin, and skin problems such as psoriasis and eczema are becoming more widespread. We react more often of artificial additives, perfumes and detergents.
However, many are now aware of what they put on the skin, the body's largest organ. Especially those already experiencing dry skin, either as a result of other medical treatment, atopic conditions or dry winter air, see the value in using products that are natural and kind to the skin. The skin will be strengthened with commodities supplying the skin with nutrition and suppleness, and the skin will be better equipped to weather and wind.
Helt Rein have developed a gentle method for extracting fat / oil and refining this to use skin products. This fat / oil has never been used beyond the traditional way. Now it is available in jars with cream or as leppomade.

The Reindeer Cream/Rein cream and Rangifer Lips leppomade from Helt Rein will be able to replace many of the more "exclusive" creams, because they are what they are - exclusive! No other manufacturer in the world are utilizing features from the reindeer and the Sámi traditional knowledge as Helt Rein!
