We regularly receive questions from clients. Below you will find the answers to some frequently asked questions.

QUESTION: The hallmark of Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare is “bionome quality”. What does this actually mean?

Answer: Bionomy is the “knowledge of the laws of life”. From this we have derived the term “bionome quality” to clarify the particular quality of our skincare products. It should be in harmony with the skin and the well being of the environment and animals. What it really means is that the products exhibit the following characteristics: free from chemical preservatives, perfume-free, with lipids (multilamellar liposomes) which occur naturally in the skin, with valuable natural oils, free from mineral oils, free from animal ingredients and without outer packaging.

QUESTION: Is Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare also a "natural/organic" skincare brand?

Answer: It surely is! Only, just being natural/organic doesn't guarantee the healthiness and the effectiveness of the selected ingredients at all. Bionome quality does, because potent allergens and unnecessary ineffective ingredients are excluded . One could say "bionome" is a largely improved natural/organic skincare.

QUESTION: Why doesn't Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare use preservatives and perfume? There are plenty of people who can tolerate these substances. I have never had a problem with it either.

Answer: The statistical surveys on allergies best inform one on the most common allergy triggers in cosmetics. These are perfumes and chemical preservatives, which can be read in any dermatological or allergological manual. It is completely unreasonable to suggest that these substances are safe because they can be tolerated for a period of time. Anyone who believes such a thing doesn’t know much about allergies. Before an allergy reflects on the skin there is first a sensitization process which has to pass which takes at least 5 days, but can take many years. This risk can only be reduced or excluded if one does not use those allergens.

QUESTION: Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare  uses “multilamellar liposomes”. What is special about them?

Answer: Liposomes are the only ingredient in cosmetic science that can guarantee optimal hydration of the skin. They greatly increase the skin’s moisture content, resulting in a clearly smoother and more beautiful skin. They also consist of the same lipids of which the skin is composed. Thereby, under normal circumstances, an allergic reaction is excluded. It is impossible to imagine a more natural skincare. But multilamellar liposomes also have a number of other benefits: They transport important active ingredients such as skin-friendly vitamins deep into the skin so that they can deploy their effect in the right places. Together with evening primrose oil and tea tree oil, multilamellar liposomes have a really wonderful effect on impure skin with blemishes.

QUESTION: Why are Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare products environmentally friendly?

Answer: Where ever possible we do not use excessive packaging such as outer wrappings. These have nothing to do with the effectiveness and compatibility of the skincare products. That is what it comes down to. Ingredients are also chosen for their biodegradable properties.

QUESTION: Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare doesn't use animal ingredients. Why?

Answer: Animal ingredients have no advantage over plant substances. These ingredients originate, just as meat on a plate, from living creatures, which are just as conscious as we humans are. To use animal ingredients in cosmetic products animals must be slaughtered. And slaughter means suffering and death for these animals. Whoever views video recordings of animal farming, animal transport and abattoirs can hardly use these ingredients in products. Having compassion for these living beings means not killing them. As Arthur Schopenhauer said: “compassion is the basis of all morality”. And in this he expressly included animals. Another note on caviar: the sturgeon’s belly is slit open while it is still alive, in order to retrieve the eggs from its body! Caviar in cosmetics doesn't work, there are no benefits to the skin. But animals have to suffer and die for this illusion of the industry.

Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare engaged in animal protection in any other way?

Answer: Yes, we support many animal protection organizations which fight against animal experimentation, hunting, bullfighting, the use of fur etc. We are one of the main sponsors of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) , the largest animal rights organization in the world. In 2007 we received the PETA award for the best cosmetics company regarding animal well fare. PETA letter. PETA Award (both in German).

QUESTION: What innovation can be expected from Dr. Baumann's Exclusive Bionome Skincare in the near future?
Answer: Every year new products come on the market to suit the needs of consumers and salons. We recently had a sensational breakthrough in product development with the SkinIdent line. These are skincare products which can not cause allergic skin reactions, as they contain exclusively active ingredients and vitamins which occur naturally in the body.
