Cosmetics from the heart of nature
Natural cosmetics are primarily based on a high concentration of plant and herbal oils and extracts.

Natural vs conventional cosmetics
Every woman uses up to 12 beauty products containing 168 unique ingredients every day. Among these ingredients can be endocrine disruptors that can affect hormonal balance in the long run. Given that our skin can absorb up to 60% of substances into the bloodstream depending on the substances that come into contact with it (example: nicotine patches or contraceptives), it is therefore highly advisable to keep an eye on what personal care products we use daily, including drugstore products. Regular use of "toxic" drug products can also cause: skin problems, cancer, infertility, birth defects, reproductive problems and cognitive impairment.
Natural cosmetics contain natural ingredients in much higher concentrations. In particular, it contains plant oils, which serve as the bases of most products. These are obtained by extraction or cold-pressed. The oils are then supplemented with essential oils, which not only represent the fragrance component of the product, but also partially act as a preservative. Essential oils are obtained by distilling or pressing flowers, fruits, leaves or bark. In addition, extracts and vitamins from plants, nuts, seeds, seeds, honey, etc., essential oils or, for example, floral waters - hydrolates - are added.
