Cosmetics manufacturers between responsibility and profit-making

There are inc­re­dibly many cos­metics manu­fac­tu­rers at the market - and even more cos­metics brands because many manu­fac­tu­rers pro­vide several of them. This is not sur­pri­sing, since a lot of money can be earned with cos­metics.

Dan­ge­rous ing­re­di­ents in
cos­metics pro­ducts

Loo­king at the con­t­ents of many pro­ducts raises the ques­tion, where is the res­pon­si­bi­lity for the con­sumer? Unfort­u­na­tely, cos­metic pro­ducts are often not deve­loped for war­ran­ting the health of the skin, our lar­gest organ. In most cases, the only pur­pose is maximum profit, as in many areas of eco­nomy.

This is the only way how to exp­lain why cos­metic pro­ducts still use so many ing­re­di­ents that are known to harm the skin or even the whole orga­nism. Why do cos­metics manu­fac­tu­rers not change their recipes when dama­ging effects are cle­arly demon­s­t­rated? The answer is simple: it is very dif­fi­cult, costs a lot of money, and accept­ance by the con­sumer is at risk.

Take chan­ging the fra­grance of a cream as an example. This alone can cause many custo­mers not to buy the pro­duct. Or look at how custo­mers usually choose a cream:

It must at once pro­duce a plea­sant skin fee­ling. Unfort­u­na­tely this is achieved pri­ma­rily by using skin-sea­ling sili­cones or mineral oil com­pon­ents. Oh, and the scent must be right, too. That perfume is one of the 20 most fre­quent allergy trig­gers is sud­denly no longer important.

High tole­ra­bi­lity by res­pon­sible deci­sions

Belico is aware of its res­pon­si­bi­lity as a cos­metics pro­ducer. BTB Bio­Tech Beauty AG belongs to those few cos­metics manu­fac­tu­rers who do not only pay great atten­tion to the effects of their pro­duct but also to health and tole­ra­bi­lity. This makes deve­lop­ment more ela­bo­rate and harder, but bene­fits the long-term health and beauty of the skin.

Why is Belico's phi­lo­sophy so dif­fe­rent from that of most other cos­metics manu­fac­tu­rers? Among other things, because Belico is still a family-run com­pany. Deci­sions are made by the owners and not by staff who must account for high sales and pro­fits first.

Being a pas­sio­nate beauti­cian and also a user of cos­metics pro­ducts, co-owner Ste­phanie von Lupin is very criti­cally obser­ving the deve­lop­ment of Belico care pre­pa­ra­tions. This is par­tially owed to the fact that she has suf­fered from serious skin pro­b­lems once and has begun very early to inves­ti­gate into cos­metic ing­re­di­ents.

For these rea­sons, Belico not only gua­ran­tees a visible impro­ve­ment of your skin struc­ture but also the con­s­i­de­ra­tion of health aspects in the deve­lop­ment of Belico care pre­pa­ra­tions.
