At Oriflame Cosmetics our high quality products are formulated with “Wisdom of Nature and the Best of Science” in mind, and to this effect many ingredients used are derived from natural plant sources and not harmful to our environment.
We take inspiration from nature when formulating products and incorporate plant ingredients and actives when possible.
We have strict standards for acceptance of herbal extracts, which take purity, extraction, and activity into account. We interpret “derived from natural plant sources” at four levels of processing:
- Physical Process e.g. pressing: sunflower oil, avocado oil.
- Extraction from herbs/flowers/trees using water/propylene glycol : lavender, birch extract.
- Biotechnology Process e.g. fermentation: hyaluronic acid from cereals.
- Chemical reaction from natural oils : triglycerides from coconut oils
Oriflame’s cosmetic products have varying levels of naturalness.
With more than 95% natural ingredients, and only certain synthetic ingredients that are allowed for natural formulations, ecobeauty is the most natural, ethical, and environmentally respectful range of products in Oriflame’s portfolio.
All of our EDT & EDP products contain natural fermented alcohol.
Other ranges such as Pure Nature and Nature Secrets take inspiration from nature, and the benefits are based on natural plant and fruit extract ingredients.
Many performance and safety ingredients do not have suitable plant-based alternatives, such as actives, silicones, UV filters. Therefore, certain performance products may only contain low level of natural ingredients. We only use synthetic ingredients that are safe and mild yet effective are incorporated into our formulations.
