The face itself is a unique region of the body. No living creature expresses itself through its face in the way humans do. The mobility of the face serves the own expression and communication.
It is therefore obvious to pay special attention to the facial skin. It is noticeable that skin diseases in the population have increased considerably over the past decades and this correlates with an apparently better care of "civilized and wealthy" societies. Some of the reasons for this are already known - for example insufficient sun protection or incorrect care - and could be relatively easily remedied. This presupposes a certain change in behavior, as, for example, sensitivity to the quality and origin of food has already made significant progress in most population groups.
Most behaviors do not require much effort. Many things become immediately understandable if you know a little more about your own skin and its function or simply pay a little more attention to it in your daily care. So it is only justified that the consumer has a right to know what is in the wide range of care products on offer.
Nowadays, consumers are justifiably much more critical and check the truth of the many promises of effectiveness of cosmetic products.
That's why it is particularly important to me to create transparency in ananné effective cosmetics. My team of experts and I take great care to ensure that all our ingredients come from sustainable organic cultivation or wild collections. They are free of synthetic substances and microplastics. We know our suppliers and source the 85 active ingredients from all over the world. In the production of our entire face and body care line, which is 100% produced in Switzerland, we take into account nutrient-preserving processing. All our products are certified (vegan, NaTrue, halal, Peta (without animal testing), Clean Beauty, zero plastic inside).
In my series "In dialogue with the skin" I will write about it regularly.
