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. 

Skin Care

Purifying Calming Dead Sea Mud Mask

Acme-Hardesty Co.

The Dead Sea is one of the world's saltiest bodies of water, with a salinity above 34%. Dead Sea mud (silt) is known for its therapeutic benefits thanks to natural minerals. Nevertheless, mud masks are prone to contamination. While high preservative concentrations could be considered, these pose risks for irritation and formula instability. SharoMix AM25, however, demonstrating antimicrobial activity, passed the challenge test in this "preservative-free" formula. Containing 20% Dead Sea mud, this formula detoxifies skin and soothes and enriches it.
