All our skincare products are researched, developed and manufactured by us. We have been championing true green science principals for 25 years in everything we do but in a way that does not compromise on product results. Its not just about removing parabens and other nasties, that's easy and nothing new to us, rather, we have always developed our own formulations (some 250 to date), extracts and manufacturing methods that get you the results you want. We are so good at this, that we often get asked to build lines for multi-nationals and doctors.
Here is a small sampling of our achievements.
Prebiotic Activ Technology™Patent granted July 25, 2019: number 15/331,679.
Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affectingup to 50 million Americans annually. Our groundbreaking all-natural discovery was made after testing nearly 300 different botanicals and the synergy between them. Designed for the treatment of mild to moderate acne and accelerated aging, this technology utilizes a synergized patented extract of organic blackcurrants and European wild-crafted pine. Both are processed under a specific patented method. Unlike skin damaging and skin irritating benzoyl peroxide that kills good microbes along with the bad and disrupts the natural barrier, our Prebiotic Activ Technology carefully nurtures friendly bacteria, helping them to out-compete the harmful ones to naturally treat acne concerns and other skin issues and diseases including dermatitis.
2 Years Product Stability Report99.9% effective at 30 seconds against Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnesWorks about 25% faster that benzoyl peroxideDual purpose: Also helps with anti-aging concernsComplies with FDA’s regulation regarding over-the-counter (OTC) topical acne drug products when combined with natural salicylic.

Microbiota 4-5™Skin's pH plays an important role in skin condition. The acid mantle is key to skin's protective barrier. It neutralizes alkaline-based aggressors (such as harsh surfactants), inhibits the growth of bacteria and restores and maintains the optimal acid environment in which skin's natural flora can thrive. Our solution is to work with each formula’s finished ingredients; this final process creates a beneficial environment of pH 4-5 that rescues skin short term and protects good bacterial colonies long term. Studies conducted on mildly acidic formulas have also demonstrated a significant reduction in wrinkle length and wrinkle depth, the natural breakdown of surface debris and gentle skin brightening.
