Inspired By Nature Ecocert/COSMOS Facial Cream

Acme-Hardesty Co.

Inspired by nature, this silky feeling facial cream is based on Ecocert/COSMOS compliant ingredients, including the the Sharon Biomix product. This preservative solution enables formulators to easily stabilize soft and rich textures not easily achieved in natural formulations.  Sharon Biomix II (comprising Sharon's Biosecur blend and natural phenethyl alcohol) is recommended at a use level of 0.8-0.9% and does not impact formula stability.

Baby Massage Oil

The Hallstar Company

The baby massage oil moisturizes and nourishes baby skin. Within it, a combination of fast-absorbing and protective Biochemica oils derived from jojoba, olive, camellia, argan, sesame and aloe work together to restore elasticity and confer a light, dry after-feel. The highly bio-compatible Sensolene and anti-radical active Opuntia Oléoactif work together to reinforce the barrier function and hydrolipidic film of delicate skin.


Clear and Natural SPF 30 Sunscreen Stick with Argan and Hemp Oil

The Hallstar Company

This sunscreen formulation is designed to provide label SPF 30 performance. SolaStay S1 photostabilizes avobenzone. HallBrite BHB enhances product feel. Those ingredients, combined with the Biochemica oils, provide the polarity to form a transparent stick. In vivo testing in a U.S laboratory (5 subjects) yielded a static SPF = 39.6. Colipa Guideline (2011) delivered SPF ~38 and PFA (PPD) ~11 performance; critical wavelength = 375 nm.
