Forever and always. That’s a promise which cosmetic products simply can’t keep: no formulation can be used indefinitely. Preservation is necessary in order to maintain the quality and efficacy of the raw materials contained in a product. But did you know that parabens, for example, do not only keep germs at bay but also come with questionable disadvantages?
We cannot imagine cosmetics without them: oils. They are part of almost every formulation and serve as a basis as well as a nourishing ingredient for the skin. But not every oil is the same… While mineral oil is a typical ingredient in conventional cosmetics, natural cosmetic products contain a whole variety of plant-based oils. We will tell you all about the ups and downs.
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?
Did you know that the skin is our largest organ? That’s why we should treat it with utmost care. If something is wrong, our skin will let us know – for example with irritations or impurities. Dr. Julia Mader-Brodmeier and Kristina C. Bernhoeft, education team of BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE, tell us in this interview how you can protect your skin’s balance – and what you should do if your skin loses its balance.
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!
