Since the beginning skin care products have contained many animal based ingredients such as such as soluble collagen, elastin, silk and pearls. Green chemistry has advanced over the years and this has led to phyto and vegan alternatives to animal based ingredients. All of our formulations are of non-animal origin with the exception of honey that we source from a ethical and sustainable bee keeper. We use honey in three of our formulations as listed on the packaing.

Our phyto collagen is derived from Saccharomycetaceae through fermentation. On a cellular level yeast contain a variety of high molecular weight proteins, which contain hydroxyproline-rich regions.
A skin-identical lipid concentrate for enhanced skin moisturization produced from vegetables. Cholesterol is made semi-synthetic.
A natural, yeast-derived ingredient with a similar protein profile as animal derived elastin. Used for it's skin firming properties.

Produced through microbial fermentation with the aid of yeast extract. Used as a humectant.
Bio Rice Milk
