Product Review: Bioethique Organics
I was excited to try Bioethique certified organic skin care products. They are the first and only skin care line in North America to be certified
by Nature et Progrès, Europeʼs strictest and most rigorous organic certification agency. In case you hadn’t noticed, Europe is more strict that the U.S. when it comes to the safety of beauty and skin care products. They have already banned nearly 1200 toxic substances, many of which are still in use in the U.S. This is why you must take care when selecting products.
Bioethique products are made in Provence, France under the strictest guidelines. All Bioéthique products are Third Party Certified Organic, utilize a minimum of 95% Certified Organic ingredients and 100% of botanical ingredients are certified organic. I used the Bioethique skin care line and one product in their hair care line for a period of 1 month. I usually like to use products for at least that long so I can truly see how it works over a longer period of time than say, a few days.
Bioethique Antioxidant Serum was the first product I tried. At first, I used alone it at night after cleansing. My face felt very dry! Then I had an epiphany! I applied the serum followed by the Night Cream and my skin felt much more hydrated. My skin also felt extremely soft and smooth. However, if you have normal to oily skin, the Serum might work well on its own. It’s lightweight and a little goes a long way so a small bottle may last you quite a while. The scent is a bit strong until you get used to it. The serum is loaded with beneficial ingredients including essential oils and that is what I was smelling. After a while, I started to like the fragrance. After using the serum for a few days, I began to feel a slight tightening sensation after applying it. This is exactly what it’s supposed to do. The serum promotes more youthful skin by regenerating cells and protects the skin against further environmental damage. If you like, you can even use it day and night with your moisturizer for added benefits. Here are some of the features:
•Protects against and corrects skin oxidation and free-radicals.
•Tones and soothes irritated skin.
•Nourishes outer epidermis.
•Reduces aging process and UV damage.
•Moisturizes and regenerates skin.
The ingredients of the serum are:
Mountain spring water of Haute Provence, certified organic melissa extract, certified organic extra virgin sunflower oil, certified organic extra virgin olive oil, europaea-stearyl-ester*, certified organic extra virgin borage oil, certified organic ylang ylang essential oil.
The melissa extract is for toning skin and I definitely felt this happening! So if you are starting to see some signs of aging, I would highly recommend this serum for you. However, if you do not like a strong scent, I would make another choice.
Bioethique makes a Night and a Day Cream which are not as strong smelling as the serum. In fact, they smell delightful and fresh. The Day Cream left my skin moisturized and ready for makeup application. It’s rich in minerals, vitamins, and trace elements, making it a super food for skin. Check out the safe ingredients:
Mountain spring water of Haute Provence, certified organic immortelle extract, certified organic lavender extract, certified organic extra virgin sunflower oil, europaea-stearyl-ester*, certified organic extra virgin olive oil, certified organic rose geranium essential oil.
The Night Cream worked wonderfully especially when paired with the serum. It firms and tightens skin while reducing wrinkles.
I also used the Bioethique Eye Cream and immediately noticed it working to tighten, firm, and reduce the puffiness I sometimes get when I don’t have enough sleep. I also loved that I could just use a drop to apply to the delicate eye area. A little sample vial lasted me a long time!
My favorite product by far was the Hair Conditioning Mist. You can use it in the shower and then rinse or as an after shower leave in conditioner. I used it as the latter. My hair was easy to comb through and was soft and manageable without feeling weighted down. It can even be used on dry hair to refresh and condition. If you have a problem with dry, frizzy hair, this may be the miracle product for you.
Mountain spring water of Haute Provence, European Pine Extract, Extra Virgin Sunflower Oil, Europaea-stearyl-ester, Extra Virgin Olive oil, Mallow Extract, Rosemary Extract, Lemon Grass Essential Oil, Rose Geranium Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil.
Do you notice something about the ingredients so far? Organic extracts, first cold-pressed oils, and spring water meld together to bring you safe, non-synthetic skin, body, and hair care products. You will find no artificial fragrances, colors, waxes, parabens, or petroleum in Bioethique products. Overall, I was pleased with the results and performance of Bioethique products. The products I reviewed are priced in the $36-$68 range. Whoa…you might be saying. Think about this: When you purchase Bioethique you know you are getting the absolute highest quality organic ingredients, and we all know you get what you pay for! The product will last you a long time too since a little bit goes a long way. Also, if you want to just try the products out before buying full size, you can get a sample set for under $10!
