    "Fresh food for your skin!", that is the company's motto. In production we use over than 100 plant and herbal natural ingredients of the highest quality, collected in eco-friendly areas all over the world: living seaweeds; fresh aloe juice; essential oils of ginger, magnolia, vanilla, cinnamon, and rosemary; jojoba, coconut, cocoa oils and many more. The important characteristic of our work is that all synthetic, harmful or even neutral components are excluded from the formulas of our cosmetics.

  • Philosophy

    Cosmetics can be called the food, or nutrition, for the skin. In view of this, anyone who uses cosmetics should know what is included in its composition. The ingredients of all products of by-cosmetics are listed both on the package and on the company's website. Our company works openly, we do no animal testing. We are environment friendly, we care about the planet. There is no inorganic waste derives throughout the manufacturing process; for packaging we use cosmetic aluminum, and it is almost completely recycling.

  • What is the unique advantage of the brand?

    Our company is the only one in the world, which uses in the formulations FRESH deep-dwelling seaweeds. For the skin, these unique marine plants provide an instant lifting effect and give a powerful impetus to the cell regeneration.

  • The natural cosmetics is different from the organic?

    The term "organic" is applicable to cosmetics, it means that during the growth of plants comprising the products were not used pesticides, fertilizers hydrocarbon (petroleum based), the plants were not exposed to wastewater not GMOs are not exposed to radiation, and etc.

    In order to confirm the organic origin of the ingredients that make up cosmetics, there is a special system of voluntary certification of products.

    The company by-cosmetics confirmed that it manufactured cosmetics made from components, some of which are organic, and has certificates confirming this manufacturer. However, another, and a large part of the ingredients used by by-cosmetics in the production of ingredients growing in the wild (coconuts, seaweed, etc.), so-called "wild plants", can not be certified as organic, and it would be cheating to claim the full organic composition. Besides getting "organic" certificate allows the manufacturer to the highest category of leave some degree of synthetic components in their sertificated "organic" cosmetics brand philosophy that by-cosmetics absolutely unacceptable! Including so at this point we do not seek to get "organic" certificates, which, as noted above, are often used for marketing purposes. However, the company strictly monitors the quality of the raw materials used in the manufacture of cosmetics and always pays attention to the reputation of suppliers, sustainability of their production and packaging.

  • Eco-friendly cosmetics: the global trend or marketing gag?

    Today, more and more people take an interest in the issues of a good nutrition, healthy lifestyle and environment care.

    The ecology movement is on the rise, and on the wave of its popularity there is a huge number of companies, providing the whole range of eco-friendly goods and services, from "super-foods" to eco-fashion and cosmetics. If the manufacturers walk the line and follow what they claim in the advertisement, then such natural products, surely, will bring only the benefit to the customers and our planet. Natural cosmetics help to maintain healthy skin and renew its youth, using the power of nature. The regular cosmetics designed only to mask the external defects, and sometimes this "false front" can do more harm than good to the skin.

    Unfortunately, this concept is often used only for the marketing purposes, and unscrupulous cosmetic companies deliberately mislead their consumers, filling the store shelves with pseudo-natural "green" cosmetics. For example, for the consumer, the mere phrase "Provence cosmetics" can cause a false association with naturality and environmental friendliness. The brand attributes, such as packaging, labels, interior design for the retail stores, or advertising materials are often developed in the so-called "eco-style", causing the feeling of the natural origin of such goods and, as a consequence, their benefit for the skin. However, buying the natural cosmetics should not rely primarily on advertising, but on its composition. The manufacturer must indicate on the label the full list of ingredients, in accordance with the International Nomenclature of Cosmetic Ingredients (INCI).

    Serum for face is the perfect choice for the eye-contour care. Also you can use one of our facial Hydrates: composed of light and hypoallergenic oils, providing ideal eye zone care.

    Hydrates are an ideal alternative to a day facial creams, which is suitable for sensitive skin around the eyes. This light mixture, based on jojoba, apricot kernel and avocado oils, absorbs rapidly and provides intensive nourishment and moisturizing, protecting the skin against the negative environmental effects. It improves the metabolism, restores the tone and the structure of the skin. It possesses the strong antioxidant properties, and its formula can penetrate deep into the epidermis with no pore clogging. It lets the skin breath, restoring its elasticity and even color. The hydrates contain such rare and precious essential oils as magnolia and ylang-ylang oils. Together with the rosemary extracts, they prevent premature aging processes in the skin, slowing down the destruction of collagen and elastin fibers.

    Yes, there are UV filters in the body butters. But this is a very light sun protection provided by the natural oils, and their protective factor is less than SPF10.
