It never ceases to amaze me how severely we keep to the paths we know in our day-to-day going-ons, without even realising it. I was reminded of this just last week during my visit to Tobs in Heidhausen.

The extremely pretty shop for select natural cosmetics has been here on the inner Wiener Str. for exactly a year now, just paces away from the Wiener Platz. Which means just a few parallel roads away from my normal “action radius” in Viertel.

From now on this will regularly be extended. The fact that I’ve only now scouted "The Organic Beauty Store"- or Tobs for short- is hardly excusable. The selection of exciting beauty labels, presented from top to bottom in a cool, clean, and simultaneously inviting interior, is too compelling.

For example, the French organic label absolution's cutely illustrated crucibles are lined up next to Irish brand Voya's creme pots. These are based on the positive effects of sea- and brown algae, traditionally used remedially. In a cupboard across the room I newly discover Esse’s latest products. The secret here lies in a base of roiboos plant extract from South Africa.

I test, sample, and wonder. It feels good on the skin! I also find the wide selection of products specifically for men quite special- which probably has to do with the fact that a male owner stands behind the store.

Trained hairdresser Rainer Hauber has been running his Organic Hair Salon just across the road for years now. "I came across the subject of natural cosmetics through my work there and the question, ‘What are actually we putting on our customers' and our own skin day in and day out?'" the charming store owner explains.

Only somewhat convinced by the effectiveness and, not least of all, the dusty packaging of the organic beauty brands currently in drug stores and health care centres, the aesthetician searched for natural care lines with innovative effects and appealing designs.

And oh, yes, he found them. For skin and hair. As the opportunity arose to open a second store in an ideal location right here in Haidhausen, plans for Tobs began to fire.

"We include exclusively certified natural cosmetics in our program. Too often, the labels and names 'bio' and 'natural' indicate product characteristics that aren't fulfilled in the slightest, that is not our philosophy," Rainer says about the principles of the store.

Alongside premium care lines and decorative cosmetics by Berlin in-label Und Gretel, Tobs also offers various lovely non-beauty gimmicks and souvenirs. I’m a big fan of the Munich city honey in funnily set glass jars, or even the jars of herbal teas from Tea Tox.

The conclusion is steadfast: The shop falls on my "definitely check in regularly and be inspired" list. Especially since a brand new beauty booth promises relaxing treatments… More soon!
