Cosmetics without biocide-preservatives, synthetic fragrances and other potentially harmful ingredients?

Yes, the creators of TEVI skin care answer. This is possible if the concept of creation combines the most modern scientific knowledge and the principles of creating antique cosmetics.

Science

Corneotherapy, the science of healthy skin, was created in the 80s and 90s of the twentieth century, but has been practiced from the earliest times, ranging from traditional ancient approaches.

At the base of corneotherapy, the need to protect and to restore the stratum corneum, the destruction of which leads to the appearance of skin diseases, allergies, infections, dehydration and dryness, premature skin aging.

Stratum corneum is the outermost of the layers of the epidermis and is largely responsible for the vital barrier function of the skin.

Characteristic features of defective horny layer are marked increases in diffusional water lost to a hostile desiccating environment, a decreased capacity retain sufficient water to maintain a supple, soft, resilient, smooth skin and host of structural imperfections, which degrade the ability of skin to carry out its multiple and diverse protective functions.

For the first time demonstrated that the stratum corneum is not a conglomeration of “dead” cells but is a “living” structure that is capable of self-regulation and interaction with other layers of the epidermis and dermis.

Studies have shown that the epidermis is able to cleave the lipids and use the resulting fragments to restore the skin’s lipid barrier.
The fact that cosmetics can influence on the processes of the uppers layers of the skin, places high demands on its composition.

Cosmetics should help maintain the protective barrier of the skin, supplying essential for restore components, to protect against negative environmental influences.

Over the years, since 2005, we have created handmade natural cosmetics by combined the modern knowledge about the structure and functions of the skin with the knowledge and technologies that have proven their effectiveness during centuries of experience.

Premature aging

Skin aging is a complex biological process influenced by a combination of endogenous and exogenous factors. Natural aging is genetically determined and we cannot change genes, and early external aging can be prevented by acting on the factors that determine premature skin aging (Photoaging).

External factors such as ultraviolet radiation, frost, dry air, environmental pollution, smoking, alcohol, sugar and refined carbohydrates, excessive use of cosmetics, cause the appearance of free radicals and oxidative stress, impairment of skin barrier functions. Oxidative stress triggers early aging, which means that the signs of aging appear earlier than one might expect.

Skin health and beauty is considered one of the main determinants of perception of health, however, health professionals are seeing more and more women in their 20s and 30s with signs of aging that previously appeared much later.

The increase in the number of women over the age of twenty with sensitive, irritated skin is also associated with external factors that cause premature aging, and often with the use of a plenty variety of beauty products.

Wrinkles can appear as early as after age 20s and deepen over time; damage to the protective barrier leads to dry (dehydrated) skin – regardless of the type.

Anti-aging lifestyle helps prevent early aging: minimizing exposure to factors such as ultraviolet radiation (sun and tanning beds), smoking and alcohol, sugar and refined carbohydrates, sleeping with makeup and experimenting with a variety of cosmetics.

Eating more fruit and vegetables, drink enough water, combine physical activity and timely rest and sleep is a right way for premature aging prevention.

It should also be remembered that the skin is the largest human organ, including in terms of the area of ​​physiological and pathological processes, and it largely depends on skin care whether it helps to maintain the functions of the skin or provokes pathological processes.

Tevi Care

The author’s developments of Tevi Care combine modern knowledge about the structure and functions of the skin, about the synergy of components – and centuries-old principles of creating truly natural compositions: for moisturizing, nourishing, protecting the skin from early aging.

Tevi Care has the ability to restore and maintain barrier functions, its components have proven antioxidant properties: antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, reduce collagen degradation.

Corneotherapy founder Professor Albert M. Kligman: “Invariable and characteristic features of defective horny layer are marked increases in diffusional TEWL… and a host of structural imperfections, which degrade the ability of the horny layer to carry out its multiple and diverse protective functions.

At the base of Corneotherapy, the need to protect and to restore the stratum corneum, the destruction of which leads to the appearance of skin diseases, allergies, infections, dehydration and dryness. Stratum corneum… is largely responsible for the vital barrier function of the skin.”

A barrier fulfilling its functions protects against dehydration, penetration of various microorganisms, allergens, and harmful substances.

The principle of Outside-in-Therapy, one of the main ones in Corneotherapy, works: restoration of the structure and functions of the stratum corneum leads to the normalization of physiological processes in the deep layers of the skin.

Tevi Care serums contains a unique Natural Tomato Lycopene antioxidant complex / FDAs GRAS, and are created to moisturize, nourish, protect the skin, to prevent its premature aging, the appearance of its visible and hidden signs – when in any age the skin according to its condition becomes on many years older than could have been.

Natural skin care: Tevi Care

Enough time has passed since 2005 for buyers of different ages and with different skin types, who have been using Tevi Сare for years to be convinced of their beneficial effectiveness.

Let us ask ourselves a question: does the skin allow water to pass through from the outside? No, otherwise it is easy to imagine what will happen after the first rain or downpour. Why, then, is there water in cosmetics?

The answer is simple: the cheapest technology for mass production. In cosmetics, water itself is useless, but its presence also requires the presence of many completely unhealthy ingredients in the composition, for example, biocides.

Tevi Care handmade cosmetics are truly completely natural and do not contain water, petroleum products, mineral oils, phthalates, fragrances, dyes, parabens and other biocides. Not tested on animals.

The composition of the recipes includes only natural vegetable and essential oils, a unique antioxidant Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex, vitamin E. All composition are created according to the principle of synergy, the optimal combination of components and their percentage.

Distinctive qualities of Tevi Care are physiological, economical, realism.

Corneology and Corneotherapy are basic concepts in the creation of cosmetic compositions. Corneotherapy is aimed at restoration and maintenance of the barrier properties of the skin, the violation of which leads to a wide range of problems – from dehydration and dryness to the development of pathological processes and premature aging.

A very small of Tevi Care amount is required for each application. Many people note the reduction reduction in the total cost of purchasing cosmetics, since one Tevi serum replaces several skin care products at once, providing it with necessary and beneficial nutrition, moisturizing – preventing excessive Transepidermal Water Loss, and protection, including against premature aging.

Information about Tevi Care always contains a complete and detailed list of all ingredients, no unsubstantiated promotional promises.

Enough time has passed since 2005 for many thousands of buyers from different countries, of different ages and with different skin types, who have been using Tevi Сare products for years to be convinced of their beneficial effectiveness.

Unique Tomato Lycopene Complex

Lycopene

Tevi Care serums contain a unique antioxidant Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex / FDAs GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe)

Studies carried out in different countries have shown that Lycopene has a powerful antioxidant effect on various organs and tissues; protects DNA from damage by free radicals; has pronounced anti-age properties.

The effect of Lycopene increases the skin’s ability to regenerate, cellular renewal, protects against the damaging effects of UV rays and from a decrease in the level of PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen) under the influence of photoaging.

As a 5-alpha reductase inhibitor, Lycopene prevents DHT-induced damage to hair follicles and hair loss. Lycopene is a fat-soluble substance, so it is natural to include it in compositions based on natural cold-pressed oils.

The positive effect of Lycopene extends to the entire body when eating fruits, berries, fruits and their derivatives, such as tomato paste or juice, containing it.

Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex is an all-natural extract of Lycopene-rich Tomatoes / Lycored / sourced from the FDA-approved pulp of bright red Tomatoes (Non-GMO) grown on special farms around the world.

This extract from Tomatoes, which is very high in Lycopene, is called a complex because it contains a number of the most active antioxidants: lycopene, phytoene, phytofluene, beta-carotene, tocopherols (vitamin E) and phytosterols.

This natural blend has a unique synergistic effect that enhances the effect of each individual component. More than fifty studies carried out in Israel, Germany, and the USA have shown that the synergism of natural components in the complex provides exceptional efficiency and has a beneficial effect on various organs and tissues.

The components in Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex protect against free radical damage to cell DNA, have pronounced Anti-Aging properties, increase the skin’s immune defense, its ability to regenerate.

Numerous studies carried out on the basis of scientific laboratories in different countries prove the ability of Tomato Lycopene Complex to protect the skin from the damaging effects of UV rays (photoaging of the skin) and other aggressive environmental factors.

The skin is exposed to many factors that cause its premature aging: sun and tanning beds, wind, frost, temperature extremes, dry air, pollution in the ambient air, components in mass cosmetics.

Dehydration, the destructive effect of free radicals, violation of the properties of the lipid barrier and metabolic processes lead to early aging of the skin, premature appearance and deepening of wrinkles.

The unique antioxidant Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex synergistically combines in formulations of Tevi Care with all other beneficial components.

Tevi Care serums moisturize and nourish the skin, restore and support barrier functions and metabolism. They have a pronounced antioxidant effect, protect against negative environmental influences.

The principle of Outside-in-Therapy works: restoration of the structure and functions of the stratum corneum leads to the normalization of physiological processes in the deep layers of the skin.

Serums help maintain skin firmness and elasticity, improve structure and smooth fine wrinkles, protect the skin from irritation, prevent premature aging and maintain a healthy appearance.

Each use requires just a few drops of serum, light massage movements to spread over the skin and gentle patting of the fingertips.

Natural Tomato Lycopene Complex is is one of the ingredients in the following products:

The words “natural cosmetics” are among the most common in cosmetics advertising. However, generally accepted values ​​and rules for determining “naturalness” do not yet exist.

European Committee of Expertise for Cosmetic Products (September 2000): “..the topic is complex and emotional. Many products are classified as natural cosmetics, although they contain many non-natural ingredients.

The Expert Committee proposes to introduce the definition of “natural cosmetic product”, but there is still no consensus and certainty.

It is believed that “natural” should contain only safe ingredients; it is proposed to determine it by the percentage of natural components – among all others.

The opinion that natural cosmetics does not exist at all is becoming widespread. And that cosmetics must necessarily include emulsifiers, preservatives, biocides and other ingredients necessary only for its production and storage.

The presence of water in cosmetics requires the introduction of ingredients that negatively affect the structure and function of the skin – and not only the skin.

In advertisements and annotations for “cosmetics on the water” (creams, gels), only “active ingredients” are usually mentioned, however, emulsifiers, solvents, biocides are no less active, but they prefer not to mention the results of this activity.

However, there are really natural cosmetics – without water, petrochemicals, synthesized oils, emulsifiers, preservatives, biocides, fragrances, dyes.

Tevi Сare


For many centuries, skin and hair care products have been made only from natural ingredients, from vegetable and essential oils, which helped maintain healthy and good looking skin. And as it turned out as a result of modern research – to prevent its premature aging.

More than sixteen years of experience in the creation and use of Tevi Care – truly natural skin and hair care products – confirms the high effectiveness of the combination of an approach that has proven useful in the course of centuries of testing and scientific knowledge of the third millennium, discoveries in the field of Corneobiology and Corneotherapy.

Tevi Care is fundamentally different from the mass cosmetics, including the prime cost associated with the cost of components and production technology aimed at maintenance the beneficial properties of natural ingredients.

Outside-in сare: restoration of the structure and function of the stratum corneum, leads to the normalization of processes in the all skin layers, helps to maintain health and good appearance of the skin, prevent premature aging.

Corneobiology and Corneotherapy

..Actually, corneotherapy has been practiced unwittingly by dermatologists from the earliest times encompassing different approaches… ranging from traditional ancient approaches…

“Corneobiology refers to that broad range of experimental studies that are focused on the anatomy, physiology and biology of the stratum corneum… However, it was not until the latter half of the 20th century that the stratum corneum began to be viewed as of the viable tissues, featuring the special functions of preventing diffusional water loss against a hostile, desiccating environment and limiting the penetration of exogenous, toxic chemicals with antigens.

… an historical account of the evolution, one might say revolution, regarding the new appreciation of the horny layer as having multiple, dynamic functions” set out in a treatise entitled ‘How the dead stratum corneum became alive’ by Albert Montgomery Kligman.

Albert Montgomery Kligman, Professor of Dermatology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, author of hundreds of papers, which were the scientific basis of dermatology.

Dr. Kligman was first to describe the human hair-growth cycle, investigated the pathogenesis and treatment of acne, athlete foot and dandruff, disproved the “common knowledge” that chocolate promotes acne, identified the effects of sunlight on the skin.

Many studies have been conducted by Professor Albert M. Kligman at the intersection of science, resulting in cosmetology and medicine appear such terms as “photoaging” and “corneotherapy”.

At the base of Corneotherapy, the need to protect and to restore the stratum corneum, the destruction of which leads to the appearance of skin diseases, allergies, infections, dehydration and dryness. Stratum corneum is the outermost of the layers of the epidermis and is largely responsible for the vital barrier function of the skin.

For the first time demonstrated that the stratum corneum is not a conglomeration of “dead” cells but is a “living” structure that is capable of self-regulation and interaction with other layers of the epidermis and dermis.

Corneotherapy refers to preventive interventions that are primarily directed to the correction and restoration of the stratum corneum barrier that has been rendered defective and impaired by disease, genetics and a variety of mechanical, physical, chemical and psychological exogenous insults and stresses.

“Invariable and characteristic features of defective horny layer are marked increases in diffusional TEWL ( Transepidermal Water Loss) to a hostile desiccating environment, a decreased capacity to take up and retain sufficient water to maintain a supple, soft, resilient, smooth horny layer and a host of structural imperfections, which degrade the ability of the horny layer to carry out its multiple and diverse protective functions.”

Studies have shown that the epidermis is able to cleave the lipids that cosmetics contains and use the resulting fragments to restore the skin’s lipid barrier. The renewal process of epithelial cells is 28-30 days, in some cases even more. It is important to ensure the normal course of the process of cell renewal.

The skin gets its moisture from “inside”, by the diffusion of fluid from the capillaries, as the stratum corneum prevents the penetration of water from the “outside”. Maintenance of the necessary moisture in all layers of the skin, the skin barrier function performance – the result of metabolic processes in the epidermal layer.

The fact that cosmetics can influence on the processes of the uppers layers of the skin, places high demands on its composition. Cosmetics should help maintain the protective barrier of the skin, supplying essential for restore components, to protect against negative environmental influences.

The principle of Outside-in-Therapy works: restoration of the structure and functions of the stratum corneum leads to the normalization of physiological processes in the deep layers of the skin. This principle is the basis for the creation of natural cosmetics Tevi Care.

“Actually, corneotherapy has been practiced unwittingly by dermatologists from the earliest times encompassing different approaches and basically targeting defective horny layers ranging from traditional ancient approaches…”

Cosmetics and the “beauty cocktail”

Are life and health worth a definite answer? Who and why do we help by using cosmetics with these components? Definitely not for myself…

Skin needs protection

A close connection of the skin with all organs is laid even in the embryonic period. All tissues and systems develop from three germ layers. The human body is a single integral system. The mutual influence of the state of the skin, the largest organ in terms of area, and internal organs is a manifestation of the “feedback” necessary for life and adaptation.

Hundreds of years ago, the effect of mechanical irritation of certain points on the surface of the skin on the body’s functions was noticed. Internal diseases can be manifested by skin dermatoses, in certain areas of the skin, increased pain and temperature sensitivity may appear.

The skin separates the internal environment of the body from the external environment, protects against aggressive influences. Barrier functions are performed by several layers of stratum corneum cells connected by an intercellular lipid barrier. А hydrolipid film, a protective acid mantle, is located on the surface of the stratum corneum.

cosmetics and skin

The skin is in constant interaction with the external environment. It is “assigned” many different functions: a protective barrier and immune response, excretion and absorption, water balance, sensory reception, thermoregulation, et cetera.

The skin is actively involved in the general metabolism in the body, produces the main amount of vitamin D and a protective pigment – melanin. Receptors are located in the skin that report changes in the environment, causing an adequate response.

As the main protective barrier, the skin is exposed to constant external aggressive influences, which leads to its premature aging (Photoaging).

Cosmetics must protect

Skin protection is about cleansing, nourishing, moisturizing and what is usually meant by protection. That is, protection from outside attacks: the sun (and solarium), wind, temperature extremes, the damaging effect of free radicals, bacteria, viruses and fungi, as well as cosmetics – if it contains aggressive components. More on this later.

The lipid barrier is impervious to water and plays an important role in retaining moisture in the skin and protecting it from negative environmental influences. Violation of the protective properties of the lipid barrier leads to dehydration of the skin, dryness and flaking, the appearance of allergic and infectious diseases, and premature aging.

From the point of view of Corneobiology and Corneotherapy, restoration and maintenance of barrier functions leads to the normalization of physiological processes in the deep layers of the skin and prevents its premature aging – Outside-in Therapy.

Since the epidermis is able to break down lipids entering the composition of cosmetics and use the resulting fragments to restore the lipid barrier of the skin, it is necessary to deliver exactly what it needs to the skin “from the outside”.

The skin must receive a sufficient amount of lipids, antioxidants, vitamins, amino acids, which help the skin to stay healthy and prevent early aging.

“Beauty cocktail”

Since cosmetics are actively involved in the processes occurring in the surface layers of the skin, depending on the ingredients in the composition, the effect of cosmetics can be beneficial or harmful.

Healthy lifestyle: diets, fruits, vegetables, fresh juices, fitness and swimming. We are accustomed to associate all this with the preservation of youth, health and beauty for a long time.

However, when it comes to cosmetics, everything is different: a very small number of people read the full list of ingredients, limiting themselves to the list of “active ingredients” offered by them.

It is no longer a secret that modern cosmetics mainly consist of water and products of chemical and petrochemical synthesis.

It is enough to read this paragraph diagonally: Methyl-propyl-isopropyl-butyl-ethyl-parabens; Imidazolidinyl urea, diazolidinyl urea, 2-bromo-2-nitropropane-1,3-diol and other preservatives that release formaldehyde; Methylchloroisothiazolinone and other biocides derived from isothiazolinone; Phenoxyethanol; Triethanolamine, DEA; Propylene glycol, PEG; Mineral oil, petroleum jelly; Isopropyl alcohol; Stearalconium chloride, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), diethyl and dibutliphthalate, flavors, colors, etc.

Preservatives, emulsifiers, synthetic oils, stabilizers, enhancers, fragrances, dyes …
All these and similar ingredients play a major role in the production of billions of tons of cosmetics by hundreds of different brands. The cheapest technology for mass production of cosmetics is “on the water” formulations.

The formulations of aquatic cosmetics contain a low concentration of each of these components – say the supporters of their use.

However, changing from one brand to another, the same “base ingredients” can be applied to the skin every day for decades. Constant smoking and alcohol consumption may also have no visible consequences for some time.

No convincing evidence of harmful effects, and just copying statements read on the Internet?
Let’s check.

For example, parabens are very common preservatives. Biocidal preservatives are not only common causes of allergic reactions, but are indeed able to penetrate the stratum corneum, unlike most “active ingredients”.

The study, which was published in the article “Concentrations of parabens in human breast tumours “ demonstrated a high concentration of parabens in breast tumors tissue. Darbre PD, at al, Journal of Appl Toxicol. 2004 Jan-Feb; 24 (1):5-13.)

In 2012, a new study was published: “Measurement of paraben concentrations in human breast tissue at serial locations across the breast from axilla to sternum” L Barr, at al. Journal of Applied Toxicology, Vol. 32, (March 2012), p.219 -232.

The result was the discovery of one or more species of parabens in 99% (158 of 160) of tumor tissue samples, and five species of parabens were found in 60% of cases.

“Parabens can enable hallmarks and characteristics of cancer in human breast epithelial cells: a review of the literature with reference to new exposure data and regulatory status” J Appl Toxicol. 2014 Sep;34(9):925-38.

“Exposure to parabens at the concentration of maximal proliferative response increases migratory and invasive activity of human breast cancer cells in vitro.” J Appl Toxicol. 2014 Sep;34(9):1051-9.

“State of the evidence 2017: an update on the connection between breast cancer and the environment.” Environ Health. 2017; 16: 94
The key words “parabens and breast cancer” – there are already many articles on this topic.

Based on these studies, is it possible to say for sure that parabens were one of the causes of cancer, or to deny it with the same certainty?

No, you cannot – neither assert nor deny.
Is life and health worth a definite answer?

In the list below, the titles of several articles that raise the question – who and why do we help using cosmetics with these components? Definitely not to yourself.

A very valuable vegetable oil obtained by cold pressing from the seeded fruit of the Argan (Argania Spinosa) Tree. “The Tree of Life” grows exclusively in one of the regions of Morocco and in the Atlas Mountains. Just a few years ago, only there they knew about the miraculous properties of Argan Oil.

Argan seed Oil prevents premature aging of the skin and hair follicles, protects against the influence of aggressive environmental factors, in particular from UV radiation.

Nourishes and moisturizes the skin and hair, restores damaged, split ends and brittle hair, protects the hair cuticle from damage, and the skin from dryness and irritation.

Argan seed Oil has a special ratio between fatty acids in its composition: 80% of which are unsaturated fatty acids, including 35% of essential linoleic acid, which cannot be synthesized in the human body.

Argan Oil contains high concentration of highly active antioxidants – polyphenols, carotenoids and tocopherols, in connection with which the oil has a very high antioxidant potential.

For example, Argan Oil is 3 times more than olive oil in terms of the content of tocopherols.

Argan Oil contains rare phytosterols that impart desensitizing, anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties to the oil. Restores lipid balance and skin barrier properties, has antioxidant properties.

Prevents premature aging of the skin and hair follicles, protects against the influence of aggressive environmental factors, in particular from UV radiation.

Nourishes and moisturizes the skin and hair, restores and protects the hair cuticle from damage, and the skin from dryness and irritation.

It has a positive effect on hair damaged by coloring, curling and styling, split ends and brittle hair.
