For quite a few people, it is still the epitome of a good cleansing product: creamy lather. However, the lather does not necessarily mean that the product is effective. Surfactants – that’s the professional term for these detergent substances – can form small or large amounts of lather. They can be of natural origin or be produced chemically. What do you think: do they all have a clean slate?
Cooling ingredients are a real treat for body and soul. Right at the top of the list: menthol. As an ingredient in cosmetics, it does not only result in a pleasantly refreshing effect. We proudly present the star of our BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE Cooling Foot Cream and explain how it unfolds its natural cooling effect.
Green and good? Unfortunately, it is not always easy to recognize genuine natural cosmetics. So-called greenwashing is particularly misleading: conventional products evoke environmentally friendly imagery in order to appear especially sustainable and natural, even though they are purely synthetic in most cases. So what should you do if you’re not an expert on ingredients and INCI declarations? You’re in luck, because you can usually identify natural beauty products by means of corresponding seals. One of these seals is the COSMOS certification which you can find on BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE products.
One of the special characteristics of the evergreen cork oak, which is mostly native to the Mediterranean area, is its unique bark which regenerates itself. There’s no other material which comes close to the flame-retardant, water-repellent and insulating cork – and that’s a good thing too.
Environmental protection is a hot topic around the world. We separate waste, try to avoid plastic and use renewable energy. The cork oak, a true natural wonder, shows, however, that nature has the best solutions when it comes to sustainability.
Only nature is able to create something that is as perfect and complete as the cork oak. It is an ecological miracle from the roots right up to the treetop, with every part holding a benefit for the environment. One of its many talents is that it can bind large quantities of CO2.
Nature in its purest form: all BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE products contain a multi-active cork oak complex which was specifically developed for us. For your skin, this means lots of benefits for your care routine and your anti-aging care!
More than just a trend: the vegan lifestyle becomes more popular by the day. By now, however, the lifestyle does not only entail giving up meat in one’s diet but also giving up animal-based raw materials in cosmetics. However, did you know that vegan beauty products are not necessarily of natural origin and safe to use?
