About the Alchemist

My name is Martin Suenson.

I am a chemical engineer, having obtained a Master of Science from the Technical University of Denmark and a Doctor of Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

After a long career in the oil industry, I took an interest in developing skin care products to help individuals in my circle of family and friends who have sensitive skins and react to the colours, perfumes and preservatives often found in commercial products. Combining my knowledge of chemistry with a thorough study of the historic knowledge of the effects of different natural oils and plant extracts led to a series of recipes that correspond to different skin types.

Starting as a hobby, the demand grew to the extent that I decided to launch “la Savonnerie de l’Alchimiste” to serve a limited number of quality conscious clients.
