Welcome to Botnia’s blog, a space where we talk about all things skincare and beyond…
We love skin
It’s a simple statement, and it cuts to the core of how we formulate our products for you. Every ingredient that we use is carefully chosen to illuminate your natural beauty. By harnessing the nourishing power of plants, our products repair and soothe, nurturing the long-term health of your body’s largest organ.
We’re skincare professionals
Holistic estheticians to be exact! Not all estheticians are the same. The terms esthetician and aesthetician have been used interchangeably in the beauty industry, however, there are nuances to the types of services each of these professionals offer. Holistic practitioners look at the skin through a wider lens, taking into account your entire lifestyle to understand why your body is experiencing the symptoms in the skin. Our facials are gentle (not the burn your skin off type of treatment!) and designed to nourish, prioritizing the overall long-term health of your skin.
Why read our blog?
Our blog is the place where you can find professional skincare advice written by our founder Justine, master estheticians, and the team at Botnia. We offer deep dives into our key ingredients and products, skincare tips, tricks, and hacks from our treatment room you can try at home, and so much more! It’s the place where you’ll get real talk behind big issues we come across in the skincare and beauty industry and our thoughts and opinions on skincare trends we see out there in the real world.

What to expect from our blog in 2024
We’re hoping to launch not just one but TWO new products this year and on the blog we’ll share all their science-backed benefits for your skin. These new formulations are nourishing and gentler versions of active ingredients already out on the market – but done Botnia style.
We’ll have new seasonal hydrosols to share with you, each with its own deep dive on the ingredients we distill in each batch.
We’re looking to connect with our esthetician community, sharing our thoughts and findings with case studies into issues and skincare symptoms we’re treating in our spas.
We’ll share more how-to tutorials and informational posts from our holistic point of view so you know the how AND why behind the skincare you’re using in your daily routine.
