We do not like synthetic chemicals, organic farming is better for the planet.
YOUR SKIN IS AN ECOSYSTEM ... DO NOT WASTE IT
In the course of the last century we have seen the impact of synthetic chemicals on the world around us. We now know that complex ecosystems do not respond to individual chemicals in predictable ways. For example ... when we inject DDT into an ecosystem to kill mosquitoes, we succeed, but then we will begin to see unintended consequences. Tens of years after the ban on DDT, 99% of Americans still test positive for DDT residues in their blood. Girls who were exposed to DDT before puberty are 5 times more likely to develop breast cancer than adults. Although we achieve our short-term goals, the long-term effects are not easy to live with.
We feel that something similar is happening in conventional skin care. A single chemical is applied to the skin for a short-term result without a full understanding of the long-term consequences.
Veganbioty remains as close as possible to nature and the organic standards of Ecocert keep us on track. They do not allow synthetic chemicals, genetic modification or hormone simulations.
In our opinion, these standards do not limit our ability to provide lasting anti-aging results.
THE EARTH IS AN ECOSYSTEM ... DO NOT WASTE IT
Organic farmers do not use synthetic pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers, so watercourses and soil are not polluted by toxins. This also means that you are not contaminated by the residues of these chemicals in your products.
In short, organic farming is sustainable and does less damage to the planet. It is not perfect, but it is much better than the status quo.
A person's skin often has a greater microbial diversity than his intestines. Skin is now seen by scientists as an ecosystem. Human cells and microbes exist side by side and both contribute to optimum skin health.
In 2015, a 3D molecular map of human skin chemistry was made for the first time. The subjects were asked to stop using all personal care products for three days to prevent contamination of the results. The prediction was that the majority of skin chemistry would be of microbial origin and that the rest would be of human origin, with environmental chemicals forming a small but measurable part.
The results did not follow that pattern.
Microbial cell products have indeed contributed twice as much as human cells to skin chemistry. The surprising finding was that residues of personal care products contributed 8% of the measured chemistry.
The long-term effects of synthetic chemicals on the skin are not yet known, but it seems unlikely that they would improve long-term aging results. That is why we have chosen to biologically certify our products and to avoid chemicals that do not occur naturally.
