Another award winning product is the NATorigin Mascara which is  a hypoallergenic natural mascara with a natural formulation specifically designed to strengthen and lengthen eyelashes.

Hugely popular with our customers and one of our 5 Star Top Rated Products. 

NATorigin is an approved Allergy Friendly Product range. Currently it is the only cosmetics or skincare range approved by Allergy UK making it the clear first choice for people with sensitive skin or eyes and contact lens wearers.

Skin and eye sensitivity is extremely frequent these days; red eyes, weeping eyes, tingling sensation, itching, redness, dry skin etc. However, women talk indifferently about ‘having sensitive eyes or skin’ or ‘being allergic’.

ALLERGY: is a definitive reaction from the organism to a given substance for example a skin reaction is possible due to chrome oxide.

INTOLERANCE:   is a local, short-term reaction to a substance in a given context: high and warm temperature, skin acidity, aggressive products.

Allergies represent only 10% of ocular or skin reactions, 90% are due to intolerances.

This problem affects more than half of all women, has no direct relation to any substance identifiable by patch testing, is often linked to a natural predisposition (skin type, sensitive or watery eyes, age, heredity) or to conditions of modern life (stress, pollution, aggressive products, hard water, dieting, unhealthy eating habits, air-conditioning, smoking). 

The key to NATorigin being so successful is the bio-inertia of the formulations:
  • ultramicronisation of all the solid particles down to less than 15µm (60% <5µm) because the cells of the cornea measure 8-18µm
  • use of non-ionic surface-active agents
  • exclusive use of natural pigments which are insoluble in water
  • maintenance of the ocular pH (7.2-7.3) or of the cutaneous pH (5.5)
  • maintenance of isotonicity for the aqueous products or containing water (300 mOsm)
This sounds very technical, but the overall result is that NATorigin products are formulated to minimise the risk of allergic reactions.
