From its original apothecary style home in Chelsea New York, Malin+Goetz brings a modern twist to the traditional world of skincare, fusing a sense of style and design with products created for sensitive skin and allergies. It is a labour of love as well as commercial enterprise from Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz, the couple whose backgrounds cross skincare and design respectively.
The idea behind the brand stemmed from Matthew’s own skin issues with rosacea, eczema, seborrhea, fragrance allergies and dry skin. He wanted to provide products that didn’t contain rubbish, that worked and didn't irritate, and the key was to keep things simple - much as their packaging denotes. Their 20 year story is an ongoing whirlwind of carefully crafted acid-based cleansing agents, natural pH balancing ingredients, nourishing fatty acids, botanical extracts and a little chemistry thrown in for good measure.
Their products are for men and women, are fuss-free and easy to use, thus differentiating themselves from other brands on the market. Crucially, they’re made by two ultra-stylish men who need their skincare products to actually work, so that they can get on with the business of enjoying life - walking their pugs, drinking coffee and venturing out to excellent New York theatre. Herein lies the basis and integrity of the brand.
From the eucalyptus deodorant that’s toxin-free to the peppermint shampoo that’s natural, fresh smelling and suitable for everyday use, removing product build up without stripping hair of its nutrients, everything at Malin+Goetz is carefully crafted and designed for life.
