A visit to the Spitzenhaus Zurich is a wonderful way to lift your spirits. This fabulous emporium of all things that are good and which make you feel better, is the perfect place to discover great new perfumes, skincare and all sorts of beautifying potions and lotions. If you haven’t visited it before, it is well worth a trip for the aesthetics alone; the beautiful interiors look a little like a modern interpretation of an old fashioned high class apothecary and the range of beautiful objects on display is mesmerising.

I was invited one rainy Tuesday in May to Parfumerie Spitzenhaus to find out all about a new range of natural skincare they have just introduced. So after battling the rain and the wind in Bahnofstrasse I was relieved to enter the calm and tranquil interior of Börsenstrasse 14, 8001 Zurich, just a stone’s throw from Paradeplatz.

From Denmark to London to Italy

In fact Jeanette started off as a successful fashion designer and she and her husband lived in the Notting Hill area of London where Claus was a property developer. Purchasing a plot of land in Borgo San Pietro, a former  medieval pilgrimage site in Tuscany in Italy, led to a change of direction. Away from the rat race in London, the Danish couple felt they had found the perfect place to start a family. However, when it didn’t happen straight away Jeanette felt that maybe this was due in part to the “toxic” lifestyle of stress, and crazy city living that she had experienced earlier and perhaps now was the time to embrace nature.

She became very interested in alternative medicine and after changing her diet to fresh organic food, taking an active interest in  nature, using acupuncture and enjoying a slower pace of  life, she finally gave birth to a healthy boy in 2006. Jeannette’s interest in harnessing the power of nature and in healthy living, led her to train as a natural healer herself. It was then that she realised how these natural, pure, raw ingredients could be used to create effective skincare.

The presentation continued at the beautiful Zunfthaus Zur Waag, one of Zurich’s best known Guild Houses and a top Zurich restaurant. Here Jeanette told us more about the journey to create Seed To Skin and explained how her pharmacist and cosmetologist, Dr Anna Buonocore, has combined natural raw procducts with high tech science to create the Seed to Skin range in their own laboratory in Borgo San Pietro.

Borgo San Pietro and Seed To Skin

Working with Anna at Borgo San Pietro, Jeanette honed her knowledge of natural active ingredients together with a team of beauty experts, including a doctor, an aromatherapist and a herbalist. Many of the raw materials come from the estate, and others from different sustainable organic producers. Using a combination of their knowledge of the properties of natural ingredients and combining them with cutting edge scientific expertise has been key to the creation of Skin to Seed.  The whole range of natural skin and body products aims to extract the best from nature while using science to obtain proven results, creating a nourishing, natural product which is ideal for your skin.

Jeanette has a deep love and respect for the countryside in which she lives and works, and for the local farmers and gardeners who are integral to the success of the environment. Everything at Borgo San Pietro works in harmony with nature. It is home to their five-star hotel, a vineyard, an organic farm as well as a cookery school and spa. In addition they also have a yacht you can charter too.
