Products & How to use

We systematically prioritize natural active ingredients, but we also use assets derived from biotechnology known for their incomparable effectiveness. Our formulas are constantly improved and we replace some active ingredients with more performant ones.
Our skincare products are being tested to be suitable for sensitive skin. They contain no unnecessary fragrances, chemical preservatives or other chemicals. Furthermore, we use pharmaceutical-grade raw materials (this is an extremely important distinction), free of impurities and “stowaway” compounds. That being said, we are always careful to avoid known irritants in our formulations. If you are concerned about potential sensitivities of your skin, please consult with a physician or skincare professional and patch test the product before applying to the face.
An essential stage in fighting the skin aging process is improving the structure of your skin from the inside out with nutricosmetics and skincare. Beautiful young skin needs a healthy internal infrastructure. That’s why we recommend you to combine Ingredient Secret nutricosmetics and skincare for a complete inside-out anti-aging program. We recommend allowing 2-3 months for a noticeable difference in your skin texture and appearance, associated with a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
A sudden change is just fine, based on the skin condition, needs or seasonal changes. However, if you have a history of sensitivity, patch testing our products is recommended. We do recommend a seasonal skincare consultation and treatment plan with a skincare professional in order to best meet the changing needs of the skin and perhaps lifestyle of the clients.
Performing animal testing on the European Union territory has been prohibited for cosmetic products since September 2004 and for cosmetic ingredients since March 2009. The sales of cosmetics whose ingredients have been tested on animals has been prohibited since 2009. Our products are MADE IN FRANCE, so we not only abide by the law, but we are also against animal exploitation and cosmetic tests carried out on animals.
Our packaging is made from recyclable materials. Our boxes are recyclable and sourced from sustainable forests. Don’t forget to recycle your boxes when they are empty.
All of our products have a BBD (Best Before Date) or a PAO (Period After Opening). They are both indicated on each product.

The complete list of our ingredients can be found on the packaging of our products. You will also find the details of the formulas on each product page. For more information, do not hesitate to write us an e-mail at contact@ingredientsecret.com
