Responsibility for People, Animals and Environment
An important aim of Dr. Baumann SkinIdent is to protect the environment and our fellow creatures. We therefore do not use superfluous packaging such as outer packaging around containers and bottles. On grounds of animal protection we do not use substances of killed animals in our products. The predominant amount of animal substances comes from the left-over’s from animals slaughtered in mass farming.
Real animal protection completely excludes the killing of any animal. It is a contradiction to kill what one wants to protect.
As a company committed to animal protection it goes without saying that we do not include substances of killed animals in our products as animal ingredients offer no benefit in comparison with plant-based ingredients.
You are welcome to request further free information on the ethical and health benefits of a meat-free vegan diet from us.
Animal protection does not begin with the correct choice in cosmetics but the correct choice of food. It is a moral, ethical balance between a brief delicious taste sensation and the life or death of an animal. Your conscience will tell you that you can never attach greater worth to a great-tasting meal than the life of an animal.
The importance of a healthy diet for beautiful skin cannot be stressed enough. From a medical point of view it is ensured that a meat-free, vegan diet is much healthier. Meanwhile, the connection between eating meat and certain cancers, especially breast cancer in women, has been scientifically proven. You can read more on this in a study in “Cancer” (vol. 94, p. 272), the renowned medical journal for cancer research.
Understanding Cosmetic Ingredients = Consumer Protection
To protect consumers it is legally stipulated that the ingredients in cosmetic products must be indicated on the packaging (INCI Declaration). But very little is known about what is hidden behind the (often Latin) terms. Therefore we have put together a list of commonly used chemical preservatives, perfumes and petroleum products/mineral oils:
Dibromodicyanobutan, 4-Hydroxybenzoic Acid, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Cethylpyridinium Chloride, Chlorhexidine, Dichlorobenzyl Alcohol, DMDM Hydantoin, Formaldehyde, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Diazolidinyl Urea, Dehydroacetic Acid, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Methylisothiazolinone, Methylchlorisothiazolinone, Methyldibrome Glutaronitrile, Cetrimonium Bromide, PHB-Ester, Polyamidopropyl Biguanide, Phenoxyl Ethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Benzoate, Sorbic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Triclosan, 2-Bromo-2-Nitropropane-1,3-Diol, Quaternium 15, Iodpropinylbutylcarbamate.
Petrolatum (Vaseline), Paraffinum-Liquidum, Paraffinum-Subliquidum, Cera Microcristallina, microcrystalline wax, ozokerite, ceresin wax
We guarantee that Dr. Baumann SkinIdent products contain no chemical preservatives, no perfumes and no mineral oils or paraffins from petroleum.
