Biome Friendly Ingredients

Most of the ingredients we find in our cosmetics and personal care products are derived from crude oil.  These products often contain residual chemical contaminants like formaldehyde that are harmful for our skin and for the billions of beneficial bacteria that grow on our skin and protect us. 

 

Wouldn't it be better if we didn't have to use ingredients made from crude oil? 

We Make Ingredients For Cosmetics

We follow four simple rules to make the best ingredients. 

1

Formaldehyde Free

We do not use this toxic chemical as the starting material for our process.

2

Naturally Derived

& Bio-based

Our starting feedstock is of plant based origin.  We provide third party certification.

3

Biome Friendly

Free of common  contaminants which are harmful to the biodiversity

of the skin, such as formaldehyde, our  ingredients can be used in Biome Friendly formulations.

4

Reduce Our Carbon Footprint

While many cosmetic ingredients are made from oil, ours starts off as carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, which helps to reduce the carbon footprint.
