Our product philosophy
At HelloBody, we’re redefining the rules of the cosmetics industry, offering everyday essentials that combine glamour, naturalness and a socially-aware lifestyle. That’s why our brand line reflects our beliefs: #naturalisglamorous
Safety and dermatological tests
At HelloBody, one of our core values is the quality of our products. That’s why all of our products are dermatologically tested by an independent German institute – the Dermatest Institute – and all received an “excellent” rating so far.
The earth’s ecosystem can be described as a complex organism in which different cycles interlock to create a stable system. People must integrate themselves responsibly if this stability is to be maintained – and that goes for us as a company, too. That’s why mindful and responsible interaction with people, animals and the environment is the basis for all our decisions.
The best natural ingredients are the signature of our treatment range, because of their exceptional benefits for skin and hair. On each of our product pages, you’ll be able to discover, in detail, their benefits for your skin. All of our products are made in Germany and we measure the ingredients of natural origin according to strict industry standards.
Ingredients of natural origin
Our goal is to reach 100% ingredients of natural origin in our products. Currently, the average percentage of natural ingredients in our formulas is 98% this small difference is necessary to ensure the sensorial qualities and the best preservation of the formulas.
Reduce our impact on the environment
Because we want only the best for your skin and the environment, we refuse to use the following in our products: parabens, sulphates, microplastics and aluminium. We do not resort to irritating ingredients such as denatured alcohol, or mineral oils and waxes, whose benefits on the skin are low.
The well-being of our customers and the well-being of our planet are equally important to us – not least because we depend on the earth’s natural resources. That’s why we want to treat it with respect and to give something back. So, we endeavour to find the best possible ways to protect the earth’s natural resources, from the planning and development stages of our products onwards. We attach great importance to making our product packaging more and more sustainable. And we constantly work to implement our plans to be increasingly sustainable.
But all new packaging variants must first be tested for their suitability. We have to make sure that our formulas are well protected and do not interact adversely with alternative packaging materials – and these tests are complex and take a lot of time.
Status quo – what we’ve achieved so far.
We use 100% recyclable plastic for our cosmetic packaging.
We will be changing the packaging material for tubes from 1st January 2020 – all tubes will consist of at least 55% recycled material from then on. Our goal for the future is to use 100% recycled material for all packaging.
Among other things, we’ve also decided to use more glass for our primary packaging. Glass is easier to recycle than plastic, can be degraded by natural means and does not release toxins into the environment in the process.
The boxes that we use to ship orders are made of 100% recycled paper.
For filling materials we use paper instead of plastic – it contains no chemicals and is generally printed with water-soluble inks that are biodegradable.
We use uncoated paper for our flyers. This means reduced water and energy consumption. In addition, this paper can be recycled up to seven times, which in turn benefits forests.
Before the launch of any new product, we have it evaluated by our internal testing centre, made up of members of our team and members of our wonderful community – all passionate and curious to preview our new products. Their opinions and comments are invaluable to us, as they inspire the development of our future products.
