Safety and Quality
Nickel is a chemical element, naturally occurring, and in the form of a natural trace element it is vital for plants and our body. However, if in too high levels, it can trigger allergic reactions. EU Regulation on Cosmetics prohibits the use of nickel in formulations, but there may be traces of it because the manufacturing processes. Therefore, Our Bio-Organic products have been specifically tested for the content of this element and they are perfectly safe. In fact, they contain smallest amounts of nickel: less than 0.00001%
Our Bio-Organic products are safe and have no contraindications. However, they have been subjected to a specific test: the Patch Test, to evaluate skin tolerability. It is an “in vivo” test, that is done on voluntary individuals, putting the product into direct contact with the skin, using a patch that must be kept for 24 or 48 hours. The score of our products is non-irritating and non-sensitizing.
