Without frippery from Bremen

At the joint stand of Bremen and Bremerhaven, there are sustainable cosmetics with funny names, made with brains and heart in the soap manufactory Martha's Corner.

When Claudia Schreiber talks about her products, it's like putting a pot on an induction hob. The energy circulates immediately. Her eyes widen, her hands dance in inviting gestures, and words bubble from her mouth in a mixture of clarity, competence, and heartfelt warmth.

Five years ago, the trained business economist and business lawyer founded her soap manufactory "Martha's Corner". The trigger was a documentary about palm oil, which once again made her aware of the effects that the use of certain ingredients can have if they are not produced in a socially and ecologically compatible manner. "Most cosmetic products also contain so many substances that simply don't belong in there," says Claudia Schreiber. She wanted to change that.

At the joint "Bremen and Bremerhaven" stand in Hall 20, "Martha's Corner" presents a wide range of sustainable products, including "Schnabelfett," a lip balm with organic cocoa butter, beeswax and fine grape seed oil. The solid hand cream, which leaves a pleasantly soft feeling on the hands without being greasy, contains tucuma butter, chamomile and optional organic orange oil. Also practical is the nail care oil, which is easy to apply thanks to the roller bottle and consists of moisturizing organic oils for the care of cracked cuticles.

All products are handmade with raw materials from controlled organic cultivation. They do not contain synthetic ingredients, preservatives, artificial colors or animal fats. "Without frippery," is how Claudia Schreiber puts it. The Bremen native is at the International Green Week for the first time with "Martha's Corner," but it seems like she's been there for a long time. "I used to do a bit of work for you," she says with an apologetic smile as her booth neighbors return from their break. Their flyers and business cards are now nicely decorated on the counter.

It must look similarly natural when Claudia Schreiber's cat Martha, the namesake of Martha's Corner, sits on her very special corner on her mistress's desk, just "Martha's Corner," and monitors everything from there.

Visitors will find the soap manufactory and all other exhibitors from Bremen and Bremerhaven in Hall 20.
