I first began interested by making pores and skin lotions utilizing the well being advantages of African components proper again in 1993. However it took over 20+ years to launch my first product and the remaining as they are saying is historical past.
I now have over 30+ years expertise within the pure merchandise Business and have formulated many merchandise.
For me an important factor was it wanted to be actually pure.
I used to be fed up with seeing different ‘pure’ manufacturers launching merchandise which weren’t pure in any respect. They’re what we name ‘naturally impressed’ and made declare after declare, however with no actual scientific data getting used. It’s vital that each one of our formulations include energetic components that are actually efficacious and replicable in each bottle.
‘Angel dusting’ is a time period generally used within the trade the place 20 to 30 components are utilized in a product to provide it a therapeutic impact, when in actuality it’s best to by no means use greater than 5 or 6 key components in a single formulation. Much less is certainly extra and this can be a key precept behind the way in which we formulate. My place to begin and our firm ethos is to solely create merchandise that take into account what prospects genuinely want. I’m not considering simply churning out a spread as a result of it’s marketable and commercially enticing. The method of growth is much extra thrilling and galvanizing when it’s one thing that I actually would wish to use.
Our focus has at all times been on pores and skin well being. I needed to make chemical-free merchandise that may very well be utilized by folks with essentially the most delicate of pores and skin situations comparable to eczema and psoriasis, pregnant mums and prospects with a decrease immune system. We love receiving all suggestions, however it’s particularly rewarding once we hear from sufferers present process chemotherapy who’ve stated our Oil it’s the one factor that they will use on their dry and skinny pores and skin.
I try to make all of our merchandise ‘Cosmos Pure’ at least and I at all times made positive that we solely made our merchandise in GMP services, (Good Manufacturing Apply). We additionally be sure that all outsourced firms are ISO high quality licensed. It was essential for me to be sure that all our merchandise had been cruelty-free licensed with completely no animal testing and had been each vegetarian and vegan licensed. It’s superb what number of firms make these claims, however don’t have the certification to again it up. We solely use Botanical extracts in our merchandise.
Thorough analysis, earlier than we even get into the lab
One key factor that we do each time we develop any merchandise is to completely analysis any proposed components. It’s all effectively and good introducing new species to folks, but when that species is on the CITES record of endangered species then we won’t take it to market. For each ingredient we use, we’ve got an entire course of the place we examine the marketability of that species, whether or not analysis has been undertaken earlier than, whether or not it’s a generally recognized ingredient, or whether or not it wants extra analysis undertaken to have the ability to use it. One thing that has been used historically in Africa could also be seen as an unique or novel foodstuff in Europe. So all of those issues must be taken under consideration. I assume folks don’t see the quantity of labor that must be undertaken even earlier than we set foot into the laboratory.
