In the awards November series of blog posts, we get to know the brands behind the nominee products of the European Natural Beauty Awards 2023. In this post, we are proud to share more about the Finnish natural cosmetics brand Kaurilan Sauna, as told by the brand:

“Kaurila Sauna was born when I, Saara – the founder and owner of the brand, founded a public sauna in Meilahti, Helsinki in 2009. I wanted to offer sauna guests, in addition to a traditional Finnish sauna, high-quality natural cosmetics and lovely linen towels to use.

Since there were no suitable ones available, I sewed 80 linen towels for the first time and learned how to make soap. The sauna building was lit with candles, so I developed lace candles for that purpose and started spinning beeswax candles for the customers’ pleasure. They liked the products and wanted to buy them, and now we have several dealers all over Finland.

All of Kaurila Sauna’s cosmetic products and candles are still handmade and I have been enthusiastically developing new products every year. The production has moved from Meilahti to Helsinki’s Pitäjänmäki and now I luckily have a few hardworking sauna elves to help me. The towels are sewn in Katajanokka, Helsinki, by the lovely ladies of Kensyr.

In 2019, I realized one of my dreams and founded a sauna store in Munkkiniemi, Helsinki. There I have chosen high-quality and original products related to the sauna and sauna, from natural cosmetics to bathrobes and felt slippers to genuine wooden beams.


Kaurilan Sauna’s creamy Vegan Deo Cream Deluxe is nominated for the Nordic Natural Beauty Awards 2023. It helps to keep the body fresh all day. The effective and sufficient deodorant is easy to apply to the armpits, and the coconut oil and shea butter it contains care for the sensitive skin of the armpits.

A convenient sized version of Kaurila Sauna’s vegan deo cream, the composition of which has been modified so that it stays creamy even in hot weather. FI-Natura certified Deo Cream is made from high-quality natural raw materials. As Kaurila Sauna’s Deo Cream does not contain aluminum it enables the sweat glands to function normally. However, as it keeps effectively unpleasant odors under control by neutralizing the sweat you stay fresh and good smelling all day long.

Kaurilan Sauna’s Deo Cream has been praised for being really effective even during hard sports performances. The scents of our Deo Creams come from pure natural essential oils. The fresh citrus scent of lemongrass is suitable for all genders.”
