Five sustainable beauty brands to shop this year
Biotech Beauty with Ignae
"Ignae is a newly launched rejuvenating skincare label with a compelling difference. Its lab, ingredients and brand identity are all rooted in the Azores Islands – home to thermal pools and hot springs, diverse micro-climates and volcanic beaches. The brand’s groundbreaking biotech using proprietary technologies harnessing nature’s gifts in a sustainable way while creating highly potent compounds. The range includes a powerful Day Complex and Night Complex as well as Blue Light Serum and a Daily Enzyme Cleanser. Free from parabens, alcohol, phthalates and sodium laureth sulphates, their formulas act within one 28-day skin cycle, with visible anti-ageing, renewal and retexturing in that time frame. Embracing the 12 principles of green chemistry, Ignae’s products are designed to have a minimal impact on the botanical and marine resources used in the unspoilt Azores archipelago. "
