Annemarie Lindner had problem skin and subjected herself to several treatments from dermatologists, some of which were painful. But they only improved her skin temporarily. She received a herbal mask treatment once when she was on vacation, and her skin gradually improved. This inspired Annemarie Lindner to become a professional cosmetologist and produce her own care products. On January 1, 1959, Annemarie Lindner, her husband Walter and her business partner at the time, Hermann Börner, founded Börlind GmbH with the ANNEMARIE BÖRLIND Natural Skincare brand. The company name is a combination of the last names of founders Börner and Lindner.
