The innocuity (mildness) and efficiency of the Eye Care Cosmetics and NATorigin ranges are evaluated at every stage of the development and production process. These steps include:
Evaluation and control of all ingredients for their high ocular (eye) and cutaneous (skin) inertia (mildness) level.
As well as specialist manufacturing techniques, the Eye Care Cosmetics and NATorigin ranges are designed to be as free-from as many chemical or irritating ingredients as possible. This, along with the careful selection of active ingredients and finely milling (ultra-micronisation) of particles, is why the products are so suitable for people with sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
As a guide, listed below are some of the ingredients we have been asked about and are 'free-from':
* Alcohol is only used in the Waterproof eyeliner & Growth activator nail care.
** Carbon black is only used in the Felt pen eyeliner, Waterproof eyeliner & some Perfection nail enamels.
*** Most of the colour cosmetics contain iron oxides which can contain nickel as a contaminant. We use as pure a form of iron oxide as possible (nickel content less than 1ppm) and also the minimum amount necessary. Therefore, even if someone has a nickel allergy, they are unlikely to have a reaction due to this.
**** Phenoxyethanol is only in the Felt pen eyeliner & Growth activator nail care.
A minimal of perfume is used in some products but the compositions/ingredients used do not contain any of the declarable allergens according to the 7th amendment to the European Cosmetics Directive of 2003.
Some products contain talc and in these, the talc we use DOES NOT use the nano-sized particles which people have concerns about penetrating the skin. It is also certified ASBESTOS-FREE and conforms to the ECOCERT/COSMOS cosmetic grade standards for the raw material.
