A range of cosmetics for good health without toxic.
BIO is Health.
“As a specialist in skin health, I always wanted to develop effective and well tolerated products.
To develop cosmetic products we use emulsifiers, preservatives, texture agents, active ingredients, fragrances, pH regulators, dyes …
Chemistry can not be avoided, but it is important to select non-toxic ingredients to health. That is the principle of GREEN chemistry.
What is the difference between traditional cosmetics and BIO cosmetics?
What are the certifications that accredit the BIO or natural products?
Why BIO is it good for the skin and the environment?
Three good reasons to choose BIO products:
1- does not contain ingredients derived from petrochemicals accumulating in the organism.
- NO PESTICIDES.
- NO GMO.
- NO ANTIBIOTICS.
BIO ingredients act naturally on the skin.
2-draconian controls and traceability.
There is a real traceability of each raw material used.
BIO cosmetics undergo very strict controls to satisfy many requirements: from the farmer, supplier of raw materials (technical specifications, acceptable limits) until the the analysis completion of each finished product.
3- proved effectiveness: Maximum Quality
Some clear examples:
- Bacteria in wheat produce hyaluronic acid to protect themselves. This active ingredient is essential for the protection and regeneration of the skin.
- The Helix Aspersa, rich in glycolic acid, hyaluronic, proteoglycans, amino acids, allantoin, is naturally an ideal complex for wrinkles, spots and lack of firmness.
- The oat treated by biotechnology, gives a lifting effect to the skin.
How to recognize BIO cosmetics?
