By the 2030s, the concept of health will have established a new dynamic between personal care (ego) and ecological well-being (eco), characterized by a growing awareness that brands and consumers exist as part of a wider ecosystem of beings.​

This mindset recognizes that individuals, nature, business and design all depend on each other to survive, thrive and succeed; in other words, how the health of the planet is linked to the health of its inhabitants.

Õsmosys concepts are said to help consumers embrace a lifestyle around conscious beauty by learning how to balance both ego and ecosystems.
