If you would like further information about the benefits and drawbacks of specific cosmetic ingredients, we recommend the following literature:
The “Blue List” put out for specialists classifies cosmetic ingredients according to their “allergy risk potential”. The “Blue List” was created by the following authors: Dr. H.P Fiedler, Wiesbaden; Prof. Dr. H. Ippen, Göttingen; Prof. Dr. F. H. Kemper, Münster; Prof. Dr. Dr. N.P. Lüpke, Osnabrück; Prof. Dr. K. H. Schulz, Hamburg; Dr. W. Umbach, Düsseldorf.
An informative reference book for experts as well as consumers without specialist knowledge is the book “Die Bewertung kosmetischer Inhaltsstoffe anhand der INCI-Bezeichnungen” (The Evaluation of Cosmetic Ingredients based on the INCI Declaration) by Dr. Ernst W. Henrich and Dr. Thomas Baumann. It serves as an assessment of cosmetic products in terms of their compatibility, allergic risk and effectiveness. Furthermore, it differentiates between plant-based and animal ingredients so that animal-friendly consumers and vegetarians can make the best choice when selecting products.
Multilamellar Liposomes:The special active substance and excipient
Amazing properties: Both active substance and excipient
Liposomes are skin-related matter which besides their moisture-dispensing properties also performs an important transport function. They are able to penetrate other skin-friendly active substances into the skin (such as vitamins). Due to the increased risk of penetration, it is understandable that we do not use preservatives or perfumes in our products.
Ensured effectiveness. Scientific studies have shown that the twice-daily application of multilamellar liposomes can greatly boost the skin’s moisture content within a short period of time.
These findings are documented, for example in the scientific publication “Haut und Liposome” (Skin and Liposomes) (1992) by Dr. Ghyczy et al. and “Beeinflussung der Hautfeuchtigkeit durch Liposomen” (The impact of liposomes on the moisture of the skin) in the journal SöFW 10/92 by Dr. Röding et al.
Compatibility. The lipid building-blocks of multilamellar liposomes exist naturally as components of the skin cells. This is the basis for exceptional compatibility.
For over 12 years the directors, cosmetic chemist Dr. Thomas Baumann and doctor and naturopath Dr. Ernst W. Henrich, have been pursuing their goal to develop first-class bionome skincare products.
Since the beginning they have been working in accordance with a clear concept which has proved to be the best: the doctor and naturopath provides knowledge on what is best for the skin and the cosmetic chemist translates this knowledge into appropriate products in the laboratory.
Dr. Henrich and Dr. Baumann have also become well-known as authors of the book “Die Bewertung kosmetischer Inhaltsstoffe anhand der INCI-Bezeichnungen” (The Evaluation of Cosmetic Ingredients based on the INCI Declaration). This work offers those in professional circles as well as interested end-users an assessment of cosmetic products based on their ingredients. The book can be obtained directly from your cosmetic institute.
The specific bionome quality standards which have been arrived at are the result of continuous, systematic and ambitious research.
Dr. Baumann and Dr. Henrich will continue to give their best for you and your skin. A promise is a promise!
