BIO-INERTIA is a concept unique to the EYE CARE COSMETICS range. Bio-inertia of formulations ensures that there is a total respect of the action place of a product and its environment. The complete neutrality of substances used in EYE CARE COSMETICS prevents any irritation or sensitive reactions with the delicate tissues of your body, especially those around your eyes (cornea, base of eyelashes, meibomian glands, and skin epidermis).
Individuals with sensitive skin and eyes, contact lens wearers, and oncology patients have very specific safety requirements when using makeup products. The experts at LABORATOIRES CONTAPHARM have a deep understanding of these special requirements.
Products in the EYE CARE COSMETICS range are created with ultra-micronized pigments to avoid any risk of abrasion to the delicate cornea and skin. The proportion of non-ionic ingredients has been optimized to prevent absorption by the charged contact lens or ocular surface structures. All pigments selected are naturally insoluble in water to prevent discolouration of the tear film and contact lens.
By respecting the skin’s pH and selecting only mild surfactants, the skin’s hydro-lipidic film remains intact. All active components are carefully selected at physiologic concentrations to improve the skin’s natural defences and protect the skin against environmental aggressors. Preservatives are used at optimized concentrations to avoid disturbing the cutaneous flora.
Ingredients used in the range undergo stringent selection for their perfect safety and biocompatibility with delicate tissues. The ‘red list’ of harmful ingredients that have been excluded from EYE CARE COSMETICS includes nickel, cobalt, chromium, lead, retinols, perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), carmine, rosin, acetone, lanolin and toluene. Irritating preservatives such as parabens, formaldehydes and benzalkonium chloride are strictly forbidden in the range. The best natural ingredients are prioritized where possible.
Such uncompromising standards have made EYE CARE COSMETICS a trusted partner for supportive care of patients undergoing oncology treatment. The cosmetovigilance of EYE CARE COSMETICS for the year 2020 was 0.5 claims per 100 000 products sold (0.0005%). This remarkably low rate is testament to the strict formulation charter that LABORATOIRES CONTAPHARM adheres to in designing their high tolerance products.
Apart from the science, EYE CARE COSMETICS are created with LOVE - that is the true beauty after all🧡.
