Hello my friends!
I invite you to our site, where you will feel the taste and style of Brooklyn, discover natural cosmetics for skin care and feel like you have always lived in New York. This is where my adventure with natural cosmetics began. The idea of using cosmetics for care and makeup without synthetic additives and preservatives has developed there and has become a lifestyle for me and my family. Using natural cosmetics also supports small businesses, family businesses and farmers who do not use pesticides. In addition, the glass and paper packaging of our products is a nod to our planet, free from pollution and artificial ingredients. In one sentence - beauty without compromise!
I founded the shop where I sold products free from synthetics and chemistry in Brooklyn, where I lived for 18 years. Brooklyn was my second home that I loved, just like the one in Poland. The brand name - Brooklyn Groove is a continuation of all these great moments of my life, conversations with people I had and presentations I organized in my shop. The inspiration was my work and New York lifestyle. Getting to know the ingredients and raw materials that I discovered at work, became my passion, which then turned into a desire to use my knowledge to create natural cosmetics.
All the products that I created were carefully thought out. I tested their ingredients on myself and I saw their effects among the customers who used them. I have my favorite ingredients that will certainly appear in my products many times. Like the wonderful antibacterial and antiviral manuka tree oil from New Zealand, Italian strawflower oil, or wild rose oil. I would like to emphasize that most of our ingredients come from certified organic farming.
My products are also multicultural - a bit like Brooklyn itself :) Creating them, I reached for various wonderful butters and oils from distant parts of the world. For example, turmeric oil from India, opuntia fig from plantations from Mexico, or Moroccan tansy oil.
When my husband and I decided to return to Poland, I wanted to take "Brooklyn Groove" with me. The place where I live now, Wąchock-Poland, near the Świętokrzyskie Mountains, away from large urban agglomerations and close to my family, gives me the opportunity to work creatively alongside the mother nature.
I believe that I will positively surprise you with the selection of ingredients that I found in various places around the world and hopefully their quality will win your hearts. There is nothing more beautiful than the feeling of well-being from our healthy appearance and from the awareness that we help our planet by choosing natural products.

We have become popular among Japanese tourists. Here's our store in one of the Japanese guides.
Our makeup artist Tara applies organic makeup at one of our Non-Toxic Party. Here, she's using RMS Modest - cream blush. RMS Beauty is a wonderful organic makeup line. If you get it, be sure to try their concealers and foundation in one Un Cover Up.

Patrycja Korzeniak, a great make-up artist, at a session with one of our clients. She's using beautiful, completely natural Karen Murrell lipsticks from New Zealand. An organic brand not known in Poland that has beautiful, long-lasting, natural lipsticks. karenmurrell.com
Patrycja is not only a make-up artist, she is above all an artist. Here she painted our model during a body-painting event at our store. Be sure to check her Instagram. patrycjakorzeniak.com
Another non-toxic party with me with Basia, a beautician from Brooklyn Groove. We pose for a photo with Josh, who is a professional hairdresser and founder of amazing, completely organic and natural product line for hair and skin care, called Josh Rosebrook Cosmetics. The shampoo and conditioner consists of about 80 active plant extracts. Stunning, beautiful, soft hair. I miss this brand in Poland :( joshrosebrook.com
Meeting with Sylwia Wiesenberg, a Tonique Fitness creator. Here she presents her natural supplements, the Dope Line. dopenaturally.com
This was another beautiful session. Patrycja used a well-known organic makeup line (popular in US) called Vapour Organic Beauty. Their fluid has been my obsession for many years now. Created on the basis of oils and botanical extracts, it spreads, moisturizes and nourishes the skin. Of course, they also have lipsticks. As you can see, the colors are beautiful. vapourbeauty.com
This was a small interview for the local Canal 12 television, stuff like this didn't happen often :)

Here I am with Rose Marie Swift, owner of RMS Beauty. Rose Mariie, after many years of working in the cosmetics industry as a make-up artist and under the influence of her health problems caused, among others, by heavy metals contained in makeup products, created her own line based entirely on natural oils and mineral pigment. Great colors and appearance of the skin and 100% natural products, what more do you need. It's a must-try. rmsbeauty.com
At the party in the store with Adina Grigore, on the occasion of the publication of her book Skin Cleanse in Poland "Happy Skin". Adina is the owner of the S.W. Basics.
