Skincare made sustainably, naturally
Erripi said—and as indicated in the packaging—more than 80 percent of the products were made of natural origins, intensified by prebiotics, the food of probiotics, dubbed as the “good bacteria,” which help retain a healthy balance of the skin’s microbiome. Explaining how bacteria help in maintaining good skin health, Erripi furthered, “Our skin is covered with bacteria; it’s not bad, it’s called microbiome. A healthy skin has a very good balance of good and bad bacteria.” “When your skin is not healthy, this means the bad bacteria is rising in terms of population. Prebiotics create a balance.” According to international markets development director Petrou Takis, Bioten is currently the top selling brand of the group, which exports in 40 countries around the world. Cosmetics importer iFace Inc. brings to the country two ranges from the brand. The Skin Moisture Normal /Combination Skin or the “Green line” is made with quince extract, a Mediterranean fruit that looks like a hybrid between lemon and pear, which according to Erripi contains a high percentage of polysaccharides which are good film formers and therefore excellent moisturizers.
“Saffron has high concentration of vitamins and minerals, and rich in antioxidants needed by dry and sensitive skin to cope with internal and external aggressors,” shared Erripi. Products from both lines have prebiotics. They are suitable for ages 20 to 35. The Green line consists of face cream, cleansing gel, and micellar water. The Pink line is composed of face cream, cleansing milk, and micellar water. Aside from its commitment to sustainability, iFace general manager Angelina Goyena said Bioten’s accessible price points make the brand appealing. “They are very suitable for the Filipino market. We felt it’s our responsibility to make this available for the Philippine market.” Bioten Skin Moisture is available at Watsons, The SM Store, and online on Amorfia and Lazada.
