Stay on the safe side!

Every day we are confronted with advertisement of natural skincare cosmetics. But which are really skin compatible? There are millions of product lines on the market and sometimes it might not be easy for you to make the right choice. The description of ingredients is often incomprehensible to us which leads to miss purchases many times. But for an effective and healthy skincare routine it is very important to know what you apply on your skin every day and night.

It's like giving food to your kids. You want the best for them right?

So does your skin.

As the name already suggests, natural skincare should also be produced with natural ingredients. If you choose in a responsible way this is certainly the best care especially when it comes to anti aging. They must be in accordance with the skins natural structure and also contribute to a long lasting youthful appearance.

But unfortunately many so called natural skincare lines don't really deliver what they promise. Even though natural substances are used they still contain several preservatives, chemical colorings, perfume, mineral oil or even content of death animals which can lead to allergic reactions. And that ruins the advantages of the added natural ingredients. What a contradiction in itself.

But nature also provides us with natural preservatives which can be used in the production of cosmetics, and therefore enhance the effectiveness of bionome skincare.

I like to give you some valuable information here about some terms which you can find very often on cosmetic labels.

Chemical preservatives:





Benzoic acid

Sorbic acid


2 Brom-2 Nitropropane...

This is some of the most commonly preservatives and are known for their risks of allergenic effects!

Synthetic Oils:

Mineral oil





Microcrystalline Wax

Cera Microcrystallina

These cheap synthetic oils are often used as a basic for cosmetic products. Mineral oil does not contain any vitamins; it can plug pores, cause skin blemishes and is able to unbalance the natural skin barrier.

Fragrance and Perfume

these substances give creams and lotions a pleasant scent, but are unfortunately high allergy triggers!
