Beauty Top 3: Pure Care

Beauty Collage

Who doesn’t love the incredible pure and fresh feeling of clean white bed sheets after a long summer day.

A variety of new products promise, that this feeling can be part of our daily beauty routine. An abundance of chemicals, fragrances, and skin damaging components in existing cosmetics have driven the founders of MUTI, REN and Bioeffect to develop new product ranges. A concentrated and efficient composition of contents that provide our skin with everything it needs.

We took a closer look at the promising products by the three brands:

The brand MUTI stands for “Modern. Unique. True. Intelligent.” and distinguishes itself through simplicity and refocusing the essential. Parabens, paraffin, silicones, preservatives, and mineral oils are consistently left out of their products Made in Munich and fragmented hyaluronic acid is used to score plus points. In its purest condition, this active ingredient is existent in the dermis of our skin and is therefore very compatible. As main ingredient of all MUTI products, it ensures an optimum of moisture regulation.

Next to an eye cream, a day cream with SPF 20 and a regular day cream, MUTI has also developed a night cream that we particularly love.

The combination of hyaluronan, omega-3 fatty acids, macadamia oil, and vitamin E supports the regeneration and cell protection of the skin and provides creamy-light moisture over night. The neutral fragrance free cream develops a very own scent on the skin. In combination with the feeling of well-nourished and enlivened skin, this product has more than convinced us.

The name reflects its program with REN (“pure” “clear” in Scandinavian). The London based brand offers a large range of high-tech cosmetics from shampoo over hand cream to face masks, following the guiding principle “gentle but effective”.

The Flash Rinse One Minute Facial is a facial for at home that gets your skin glowing in only 60 seconds. The trick is a substantial portion of vitamin C fused with a silica-glycogen-matrix that prevents the vitamin from rush oxidation in the packaging. Only in contact with water the combination is activated and develops its full effect: apply to face and décolleté, massage it in, wait shortly, apply water and wash it off after 60 seconds reaction time. The result is deeply clean, firm, and fresh skin.

The Icelandic beauty brand Bioeffect surprises with a significant ingredient: Barley! The result comes from the biotechnological research of parent company Sif Cosmetics: the EGF-Protein (Epidermal Growth Factor) stimulates the production of elastin and collagen inside the cell nucleus and simultaneously acts anti aging. This is used in their EGF-Serum what not only is a fountain of youth but works as a general skin-care-pro for every type of skin. Applied under your day- or night care or just by itself it compensates moisture. Immediately noticeable it gives your skin elasticity and firmness. The gel-like consistency might not seem rich but will very much surprise you with a long lasting wonderful sensation of moisture.
