The formulation of a high level cosmeceutical is based on selected HIGH QUALITY actives.
High quality ingredients mean effectiveness and purity. A pure product requires less and less preservatives.
This approach is shared by all SurgicTouch® products and it is the key element to create a range of products free from harmful substances and with the lowest content of preservatives.
Last, but not least, a careful control over metal contaminants, such as Nickel, enables us to call our SurgicTouch® products a real 100% actives – 0% harmful substances kind of product.
COSMECEUTICALS CANNOT CONTAIN
Silicones make cosmetic textures pleasurable, silky and smooth. This effect is a lie.
Instead, silicones block skin perspiration, increase skin dehydration, causing irritations and early aging.
The abuse of silicones in cosmetics often masks low-quality products in terms of anti-aging action.
Scientific studies show how petrolatum can be potentially toxic for skin, if used for a long time.
As it has no action on the skin, advanced cosmetology offers a wide range of substitutes for this ingredient that can be finally avoided.
Furthermore, studies show how petrolatum has the potential to increase the risk of cancer.
Recently, studies showed how the most used preservatives in cosmetics, parabens, have a direct and dangerous impact on endocrine system and a higher possibility to cause allergies and irritative reactions.
Coloring agents can be easily found in INCIs. They are named with C and a series of numbers.
As they only color the product, they are often useless, furthermore, they also often cause unwanted skin reactions.
We choose to avoid synthetic fragrances in our products as they often cause skin sensitivity and allergic reactions.
They often cause contact dermatitis, photo-sensitivity and skin spots, due to sun exposition.
Is there a method to recognize fragrances?
In INCIs fragrances can be found under the name “parfum” and/or “fragrance”.
I WANT TO KNOW MORE ON THE PRODUCT THAT I NEED!
In this case, transparency in formulation is paramount. An aware consumer needs to recognize a good product through the ingredients it contains.
Reading the INCI is the first step to be informed: INCI is the watchword.
