The Bellecare philosophy: Why we do what we do
Natural, ethical, ecologically and socially sustainable and customisable to the skin’s needs – a claim that is not easy to fulfil. But this is what drives us.
What is the philosophy behind Bellecare+?
Active ingredients that achieve more – that was the intention of the founder of Bellecare+ when she founded the organic natural cosmetics line Bellecare+ in 2008. The products should achieve real results, be natural and, above all, sustainable. At first glance, this seems perfectly obvious for an organic natural cosmetics line. But Bellecare+ goes much further and assumes the highest ethical, ecological and social responsibility from the extraction of the raw materials to the delivery of the products.
For Bellecare+, the high sense of responsibility for people and nature begins, for example, with the harvesting of the raw materials. The main ingredient for the cosmetic products or the power and alkaline drinks – aloe ferox or kapaloe – grows in South Africa. Unlike other aloe plants, it is not cultivated in plantations but harvested as a wild plant. This means a higher content of vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances compared to cultivated plants. The harvest is carefully carried out by hand. The outer leaves of the aloe ferox are only removed by hand every three years. This guarantees the optimum survival of the plant and at the same time secures the livelihood of many small regional farmers.
Aloe Ferox and Aloe Anmaris – high-quality base for the best cosmetics
While many cosmetics manufacturers rely on water as a cheap filler, the high-quality ingredients in Bellecare+ are dissolved in the gel of Aloe Ferox or Aloe Anmaris. Aloe ferox is able to store a great deal of moisture and itself contains many vitamins, minerals and secondary plant substances. The soothing and cooling properties of aloe also make it an enriching ingredient. The skincare products and power and alkalising drinks are already packed with valuable active ingredients. Depending on the skin’s needs, the Bellecare+ products can be enhanced with tinctures or flower essences. This means anti-ageing and problem skin treatment that you can see and feel.
How does Bellecare+ assume ecological and social responsibility?
