Allow us to forget everything we’ve learned.
Why has the cosmetics industry been promoting creams for more than a century? A cream was the easiest method for processing active ingredients and delivering them to your skin. But as a delivery vehicle for active ingredients, a cream presents some significant disadvantages: it can only absorb low concentrations of active ingredients.
It all began with a scientist from Switzerland who had already developed pivotal new innovations for sun protection. He was looking for ways to help the skin in its nightly regeneration process.
Conventional cosmetics sell ointments, jars and tubes. At Filabé, we want to achieve more: We want to provide our users with the fundamentals for creating stable, healthy skin for the long term.
The active ingredients.
A look at our research department.
The super power
of green tea.
This natural active ingredient was developed by a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) and is based on an innovative extraction process that optimally enhances the amazing qualities of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis). OM24(™) generates extraordinary antioxidant properties, promotes cell protection and has a soothing effect. OM24™ is included in Filabé Skin Clear Adult and Filabé Irritated Skin.
An extraordinary member of the pea family.
The extract from the roots of this plant (Astragalus membranaceus) is one of the 50 most important herbs in traditional Chinese medicine. Studies demonstrate the extract’s hypoallergenic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. Filabé uses its nourishing and soothing qualities in Skin Clear Young and in Skin Clear Adult.
Filabé uses innovative stem cell technology to promote the vitality of skin stem cells in a completely natural way. Filabé uses the stem call extracts of Argania spinosa, one of the world’s oldest tree varieties, and of Uttwiler Spätlauber, a Swiss apple variety, in order to transfer the mechanisms of plant cell regeneration to the skin. These high-tech active ingredients are components of Filabé Aging Skin Balanced.
A look into the microscope reveals the ultra-fine branching of the microfibrils under extreme magnification. The active ingredients, which are encapsulated in liposomes, are clearly identifiable at the tips of the fibers. By massaging the moist wipe onto the face, the active ingredients are delivered directly to the skin’s cleansed surface, where they are absorbed by the skin unimpeded by dirt, sebum or additives. It has never been possible to supply active ingredients to the skin in a more direct and efficient manner. And it has never been possible to do so without any harmful additives.
“More than 67% of those surveyed think additives cause skin reactions and allergies.”*
