PHILOSOPHY AND EXPERTISE

At the base of Eywa there is a new concept of beauty:

the pursuit of well-being while respecting the balance of nature.
This means that for our formulations we always choose the best vegetable raw materials, ensuring traceability, certified quality, and using a fully recyclable packaging.
The result is a very pleasant and dermatologically safe texture product.

SAFETY, SHELF-LIFE, TRACEABILITY

When we talk about security we mean three very precise:

  • things:skin tolerability ;
  • guarantee of the preservative system “preservative free”;
  • tracciabilità e certificazioni delle materie

For the shelf-life of Eywa products, it uses external microbiological assessment laboratories for each batch of each product, of which the certifications are conserved, available for the controls of the health authorities.

For the traceability of each raw material, Eywa prepares for each formulation a “product information file” which contains the processing folders with the indication of the batches of each raw material used and for such batches of raw materials, for each individual processing, certificates of analysis, data sheet, safety data sheet and various certifications are kept (ICEA; COSOMOS; IFRA; BSE free).

THE CERTIFYING BODIES OF OUR RAW MATERIALS
Ecocert, Cosmos Organic, IFRA, ICEA

According to Ecocert the ingredients of cosmetics can be classified in natural or derived from a physical process

or chemical (allowed for organic farming) and synthesis. Natural ingredients are always allowed, as long as their use does not damage the ecosystem or the landscape. In addition, natural ingredients processed by chemical and physical processes are also permitted, provided they are granted by Ecocert.

As for the petrochemical ingredients, these are all prohibited. Some synthetic ingredients and preservatives are allowed, provided they are contained in a specific list.

Cosmos is a brand issued by icea. The COSMOS disciplinary provides two possible levels of certification “Cosmos Organic” and Cosmos “Natural”. To obtain the Cosmos Organic certification mark at least 20% of the total ingredients must be organic. The ingredients derived from agriculture physically processed present in the formula, must be organic at least for 95%.

Cosmetic products that, although presenting natural raw materials, do not reach high levels of organic formula, can only be certified as natural; in this case the label appears the words “Cosmos Natural”and the percentage content of organic raw materials in formula may be given.

AIAB: promotes the absence of environmentally friendly raw materials in products and packaging.

The International Fragrance Association (IFRA), founded in 1973, is the voice of the perfume industry worldwide.

It promotes the safety and performance of fragrance products through dialogue with stakeholders on a global basis.

Eywa products are a wise synthesis of the different directives of the main certification bodies:

Ecocert regarding the naturalness of the product, the absence of silicone, sles and propylene glycol and packaging,

has the characteristics that IFRA, COSMOS with regard to AIAB raw materials with regard to packaging.

 

For this reason the BIO COSMETICS logo has been created which in summary means:

100% CERTIFIED RAW MATERIALS
100% TRACEABLE RAW MATERIALS
100% PEG FREE, SLES AND SLS FREE, SILICON FREE, OGM FREE, MEA, DEA, TEA FREE.

ANALYSIS OF EYWA INCI PRODUCTS

The CAS number indicated on the fiches is an internationally recognised identification code for each substance and is a parameter that helps the identification and traceability of each raw material.

Hydrating antioxidant face cream

FORMULA ANALYSYS

Natural raw materials, plant preservatives, very high dermoaffinità of raw materials.
The oily phase, consisting of date oil and baobab, has strong moisturizing activity thanks to the high silicon content of baobab oil, and nourishing and antioxidant for the high concentration in vitamin E of date oil. Olive oil is also a great antioxidant for the skin and squalano, a component of cell barriers and constituent of the “natural moisturizing factor” and ultimately emollient properties of shea butter. The aqueous phase consists of distilled water of helichrysum (intrinsic antibacterial properties) and rose (astringent properties), aloe and sodium salt of pyrrolidinecarboxylic acid (Japanese sodium PCA) which is a moisturizing active ingredient that is part of the natural moisturizing factor. Preservatives of plant origin are derived from plant source and are represented by a mixture of plant glycerin and coconut oil.

Biphasic cleanser

FORMULA ANALYSYS

An important emphasis is on the surfactant used in the formula.
It is a surfactant of Japanese origin of very high technology, delicate, can be used entirely in products for children who boast the claim “no tears”. Very valuable as a raw material, it is used in few products for the high cost formula. It boasts the natural origin because it consists of only amino acids, has an excellent washing power and, unlike the vast majority of surfactants (SLS etc), is dermoaffine. It allows exclusive use without necessarily having to be combined with adjuvant substances.
