Chicet goes back to the original methods of making cosmetics. Our cosmetic products are formulated with natural emulsifiers and Ingredientsemollients such as beeswax and 100% vegetable and animal oils.

Most cosmetic companies have stopped formulating cosmetic products in this way many decades ago, with the arrival of petroleum derived ingredients and ammonia based emulsifiers such as triethanolamine (T.E.A.).

We use no mineral oils, no petrolatum, no paraffin, no ozokerite, no ceresin, all of which are derived from crude petroleum, and are alien to the body and therefore incapable of replacing skin fat. On the contrary, application and rubbing off may lead to a degreasing of the skin.

Petroleum products do not penetrate the skin; they are not even absorbed by it. Many active substances are less well absorbed when a petroleum base is used. Petroleum inhibits the secretion of perspiration by 40-60%.

When larger skin areas are covered with preparation containing petrolatum or mineral oils, heat build up might result.

Hair follicles and sweat gland orifices could become obstructed. They often lead to the formation of comedones and other symptoms of irritation.

Perfumes and essential oils cause allergic reactions in many people, reactions such as skin irritations, rashes and acne. When perfumes and essential oils are added to eye creams, puffiness and irritation around the eyes may occur. Alcohol in facial creams can dry the skin. It also may cause rashes or a burning sensation on the skin surface.

Dyes and coloring agents can also produce allergic reaction in sensitive people. Unscented products may contain chemicals to mask the unpleasant odors of some of the ingredients used. We do not use such chemicals.

Skin care products today are manufactured and marketed for mass appeal without concern for the considerably high percentage of persons who are sensitive and to whom these ingredients cause adverse reactions.
