Radical simplicity

Discover one of the founding principles of Skintifique: Radical Simplicity

Skintifique products have been shaped by the principle of “Radical Simplicity” which means that only active ingredients that are proven to be effective and with exceptional safety profiles are used. 

What is radical simplicity?

Skintifique products are aimed to bring comfort and relief to demanding, sensitive and stressed skin. It is then very important to develop the safest formulations, delivering maximum efficacy AND tolerability. Instead of trying to chase after the latest exotic addition, Skintifique only uses active ingredients that are proven to be effective and with exceptional safety profiles such as such as glycerin, bisabolol or pure Castor Oil that is expeller-pressed from the seed of Ricinus.

In this pursuit of “essential effectiveness”, Skintifique focuses on quality over quantity with formulations that contain the fewest possible ingredients. That’s “Radical Simplicity”. And so the four products in the Skintifique range contain between five and thirteen ingredients – no more.

Radical simplicity and very pure formulations

Skintifique products have extremely pure formulation, with a limited number of ingredients to minimize the risk of skin reaction. Each ingredient has been carefully selected for its safety profile.

Our products are paraben-free, metal-free (no Nickel, Chromium or Cobalt), fragrance-free, EDTA-free, BPA-free, sulfate-free (no SLS & SLES), gluten-free, silicone-free (no dimethicone), alcohol-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin -ree.

Radical simplicity and safe formulations

Skintifique’s aim is to develop the safest formulation to bring comfort and relief to the most demanding skin.  Our products do not contain any ingredient that has demonstrated or are suspected to have negative effects on the skin and on the health. For instance, research has consistently shown that EDTA, which is often used in cosmetic and skin care product as a preservative and chelating agent, helps heavy metals to penetrate the skin. This is why, NONE of our products contains EDTA.

Also, many moisturizers use petrol-derived ingredients such as lanolin as “emollients” to soften or soothe the skin. But this use of petrol-derived ingredients can cause majors problems as they create an occlusive layer on the skin. Therefore they also prevent the skin from breathing normally. And if people use them too often, bacteria and other agents can develop on the skin, under the thin layer.

Radical simplicity and natural ingredient

Skintifique products have pure formulations with more than 78% of natural ingredients:
