Allergies have always been a condition for me. I am a multi-allergy sufferer and suffer from atopic eczema. For as long as I can remember, genes like itchy eyes, hives and sneezing have been part of my daily life. Unfortunately, my allergic reactions only got worse with age, and with an emerging interest in makeup, guidance was very quickly needed to be as gentle as possible with myself and my body.
Interest in beauty and makeup did not wane, on the contrary, it flourished, and despite countless skeptical doctors, friends and family members, I did not care; I wanted to pursue my dream and started training as a makeup artist. Unfortunately, I quickly found that the sceptics were right. It had significant consequences for my allergy, which became so severe that I had to medicate every day, and more or less wave goodbye to my social life in addition to education. By the end of the day, all the energy and excess had evaporated. At that time, I no longer cared - the allergy ruled my life, and I wouldn't accept that. That's why I decided, together with Tine, to take matters into my own hands.
Since the first time I tried makeup, I've missed a brand like Miild. As a makeup artist, I have met many medallists who, like Tine and I, have longed for a safe alternative. Miild is created for all of us who want the opportunity to choose the pure, natural alternative. For those of you who suffer from allergies and you who want to reduce the risk of developing it.
Allergy had never been a part of my life until a few years back I suddenly experienced daily genes in the form of runny eyes, clogged pharynx, countless sneezes, buds all over my face and hives. My work as a makeup artist had exposed me to so much harmful chemistry that I unfortunately developed skin allergies. Without any type of congenital allergy, I didn't have the faintest idea what it came to mean for my well-being. The allergy challenged me in many ways, but it also became my motivation to do something about the problem myself.
I love my work – living my creativity through makeup. But for me, it is really important that the dream of beauty does not mean doing harm to one's own body. When I was diagnosed with skin allergy, I was advised to wear organic mineral makeup, but it had to turn out to be something near impossible to find. I turned and turned every new product in the hope of falling over something I could tolerate. Unfortunately, my experience was that ingredient lists and product descriptions were completely opaque. It was almost impossible to realise how clean the products really were.
I realised along the way that there was simply a lack of a brand that was 100% transparent, harmless and understandable to the consumer. I have, together with Tanja, created this in the form of Miild.
