The bionome quality standards for skin – friendly, animal – friendly, and environmentally – friendly products reach a whole new level with SkinIdent®
Optimal safety from allergies and therefore an optimal effect, for a visibly beautiful skin:
1. SkinIdent® exclusively contains ingredients and vitamins which occur naturally in the skin and body (as allergies are triggered by foreign substances)
2. SkinIdent® contains no substances listed as allergens in the IVDK (Information Network of Departments of Dermatology) “Investigation into the prevalence of environmental contact allergies” commissioned by the National Environmental Agency in 2004.
• Free from preservatives
• Free from perfume, fragrances and essential oils
• Free from mineral oils
• Free from animal substances
• No wasteful packaging: No outer packaging
Ein neues Zeitalter der Hautpflege beginnt
Dermatologische Fakten, die zur Entwicklung von Dr. Baumann SkinIdent® führten:
1. Foreign substances cause allergic reactions in the skin
2. Substances endemic to the skin do not cause allergic reactions (Exception: certain autoimmune diseases).
3. Allergies are on the increase and are therefore creating problems in the population.
4. A skin care product can only be optimally effective if the best compatibility is achieved.
Dr. Baumann SkinIdent® is the first and at the time this catalogue went to print (June 2006) also the only skin care line in the world comprised exclusively of skin-identical ingredients and vitamins. Skin-identical means that these substances exist naturally in one’s skin and are recognised by the immune system as endemic to the body. This new concept has advantages for you and your skin which can be directly seen and felt. Therefore, through the best possible compatibility the effectiveness of your daily skin care routine will be guaranteed in the long-term and avoid the risks posed by allergenic substances. What was previously not predictable was which cosmetic ingredients would result in an allergic reaction in the skin; the first logical step is to avoid dermatological allergy triggers such as perfume, essential oils, fragrance, preservatives and other allergenic foreign substances. Your Dr. Baumann SkinIdent® cosmetologist, as an expert on healthy skincare, will gladly advise you on cosmetic ingredients.
Pflege in volkommener Harmonie mit Ihrer Haut Bionomy is “the science of the laws of life”.
The term “bionome skin and beauty care” is derived from “bionomy”. Bionomy makes clear the difference between traditional cosmetics and specific quality requirements. With great dedication and consistency we have strived for maximum beautification and protection of the skin through adherence to dermatological findings and ethical responsibility to animals and the environment.
We also want to clearly differentiate ourselves from the so often misused term “organic cosmetics”. Firstly, even natural substances can cause severe allergic reactions and skin diseases. Secondly, chemical synthetic substances e.g. preservatives, are often found in “organic” cosmetics. In order to make these substances appear friendlier, chemical preservatives such as Parabens, Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate are often labelled as “natural substances”. This simply means that tiny traces of these chemically synthesised substances can be found in nature. Whether or not a chemical preservative is a “natural substance” has nothing to do with its compatibility with the skin. The agenda of the directors of Dr. Baumann, Dr. Thomas Baumann and Dr. Ernst W. Henrich, to meet the quality standards of compatible and effective skincare in the best interests of the skin and the consumer goes so much further than this. It does not matter whether or not a substance is “natural”. What is important is whether the skin and your immune system consider a substance to an endemic element of your body and therefore of your skin.
The well-known slogan “nature for the skin” or “natural products for the skin” must be changed into a new awareness: To adhere to and/or respect the “nature of the skin” and on this basis to select corresponding ingredients for skincare products. The “nature” of our body pertains only to the substances of which our organism is comprised, which are endemic substances and therefore trigger no defensive reaction in the immune system.
More beautiful skin through holistic care
Beauty care from within – the importance of a healthy diet as a supplement to healthy skincare.
The importance of a healthy diet for a beautiful skin cannot be stressed enough. Scientific studies show how spectacular the health benefits of a meat-free diet are. An example is shown in a relevant policy document published in 2003 by the ADA (American Dietetic Association) and the DC (Dieticians of Canada) collectively on the Health benefits of vegetarian and vegan diets. Many of the most renowned dieticians in the USA and Canada are members of these associations. The ADA alone has around 70 000 members.
In this official policy document it states:
“Well planned vegan and other forms of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all phases of the life-cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, early and later childhood and adolescence. Vegetarian diets offer a range of benefits”
“It is the position of the American Dietetic Association (ADA) and the Dieticians of Canada (DC) that a sensible, well-planned vegetarian diet is conductive to good health and suitable for meeting nutritional needs, as well as a being a healthy way of preventing and treating certain illnesses.”
“It is the responsibility of dieticians to support and strengthen interest in vegetarian diets.”
One of the most recognised and renowned German dieticians Prof. Dr. Claus Leitzmann from the University of Gießen is also clear on the subject:
“Studies with people living vegan lifestyles which are being carried out across the world show that vegans are on average healthier than the general population. Body weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, kidney function and general state of health are by and large worse in the normal population. In addition to these positive aspects a vegan diet is less damaging to the environment (liquid manure and methane from animal farming), Developing countries will become more independent (no import of animal feed) and animals will be more humanely treated. Therefore the breeding of livestock, animal farming, transportation of animals and animal experiments will be reduced or can be completely eradicated.”
The importancre of using the right products at home
SkinIdent® products give you a whole new perspective on caring for your skin. During a consultation our trained cosmeticians are able to select the right SkinIdent® products for you according to your skin’s need and the season. DR. BAUMANN cosmeticians are experts on healthy and effective skincare.
The skilled personnel at your DR. BAUMANN cosmetic institute are not only experts on the treatments offered at the institute but also especially on planning your home skincare regime. Consider that a 1-2 hour treatment at a cosmetic institute cannot correct what has been caused through incorrect skin care at home. Cosmetic treatments at the institute and home skincare must be coordinated in order to achieve the best success with your skin. Professional treatments are only the initial starting point from where skincare must be continued and perfected at home with the correct products.
Correct daily skincare at home at home is of crucial importance for the condition of your skin. When it comes to skincare at home you can trust in the recommendations of your DR. BAUMANN cosmetic institute and in SkinIdent®
