(MALIN + GOETZ) is a complete lifestyle brand based on the philosophy of easy skin care for men and women. The line consists of natural based products for skin, hair and grooming products, all formulated to be effective, yet gentle enough for sensitive and problematic skin. Gorgeous scented candles and perfume compliment these plant-based, naturally scented skin care treatments and offer impressive gift options. You can find the popular (MALIN + GOETZ) essential kit in hotels such as the Hudson Hotel in New York, the Mondrian in LA, The Drake Hotel in Toronto and St Martins Lane in London.
Founders Andrew Goetz (left) and Matthew Malin (right) develop each and every formula with chemists and industry specialists, modernizing the traditional apothecary concept with a balance of both their personal and professional experiences. For the first in a series of ‘The Etiket Questionnaire’, Andrew Goetz was kind enough to answer some of our questions, allowing us a more intimate glimpse into the life of one of the men behind one of our favourite brands!
