Here they are!
The long awaited handmade creams made from thoroughly selected Eco-certified ingredients and produced according to traditional pharmacy formulation protocols are now available for you!
The cosmetic market is full of products with attractive ingredients. But do those ingredients reach their designated receptors in the skin?
My cosmetics are formulated to meet physiological mechanisms of the trans-epidermal transport and to keep the environment of the surface of the skin and internal layers of the epidermis in physiological balance.

My cosmetics are inspired by nature. This means that to make them I only use natural ingredients or ingredients of natural origin.
I put a lot attention into natural oils. They are essential in skin care, as the fatty acids are an integral part of cell membranes and as such they improve the skin cells condition. Ingredients soluble in oils are transported inside cells and through the layers of the skin without difficulty. I prevent the oxidization of oils in my cosmetics by adding a precise amount of vitamin E.

The human body is made of 60% water. The skin is the body's biggest organ and has multiple functions, of which, protection is one of the most important.
To protect the body skin cells are positioned very close one to another, almost like bricks in the wall, and superficially appear like tiles.
Cells are connected to each other and the tiny space between them is filled by a liquid which contains minerals, amino-acids, sodium lactate, and urea in precisely regulated concentration. This liquid is called natural moisturising factor (NMF).
The formulation of my cosmetics is designed to be in balance with the turgor pressure of NMF, which enables the absorption of some water soluble active ingredients by simple diffusion.
Its physiological concentration of ingredients keeps the skin hydrated and regulates trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL), which is the most common mechanism of skin dehydration during the day.
Finally, I have created two different formulations for each of my unique creams. One version retains skin moisture during the day, without shiny or greasy feeling skin, and the second version is specifically strengthened to additionally prevent water loss overnight.
So here they are... Cosmetics created from the love of nature and the passion to science... in one bottle.
