Booming Bob is an oil-based skin care range. Completely waterless and using only potent and nourishing natural oils, waxes and plant extracts are used. All ingredients are listed on the front of the products and are selected for their minimal impact on the environment, their function and quality.
Booming Bob is based on two main pillars: transparency and durability. For us, it is important that these are not empty words that sound good, but that they are rooted in concrete actions.
Transparency means that we are open with both content and production. We believe that insight gives us confidence and we have chosen to list all the ingredients on the front of the packaging of every product, as we are happy to sign-off the contents. Each ingredient performs a function and nothing is added as a filling. We feel that it is important that consumers should understand what they are applying to their skin and feel confident that there are good ingredients that make a difference to their skin. When the product consists of only one ingredient, its origin is listed on the packaging. In the case of mixed oils, this information is found for each ingredient at boomingbob.se/ursprung.
We are constantly striving to reduce our climate footprint through concrete measures – from seed to final product.
We work with ecologically certified producers who, in addition to providing organic ingredients, have environmental work integrated into their business. This includes renewable energy from solar cells, restrictive water consumption and reduced waste.
We opt out of ingredients that strain our planet, such as palm oil. The ingredients we use come from organic crops that meet extensive environmental standards.
We minimize the use of plastics and the ones we use are fully or partially recycled. The outer packaging consists of 100% recycled paper. All material is recyclable and is sorted as dark glass, plastic and cardboard.

When Bob learned that Emil was a product developer, he told of his interest in skincare; he had been plagued with various skin problems throughout his life, which more or less forced him to become his own skincare expert.
During his travels to the Middle East, Bob had been introduced to skin care based on oils and natural extracts, instead of water and fillers that he was used to seeing in the ingredient lists of regular products. Curious, he started buying raw materials and was soon sold on the concept he described as genuine.
Emil made a quick note about the conversation on his phone, and the seed of what Booming Bob is today was sown: Botanical
