FAQS


Are all your products natural/organic?

 Just about! Our main ingredient that makes up 40% of the serum’s formula is our all-organic sea cucumber extract! When combined with the other ingredients, the serum is only 20% unnatural. Yep, that means that the grand majority of this miracle liquid in a bottle is squeaky clean!

 The primary synthetic ingredients, Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid (HA), are man-and woman-made versions of naturally occurring peptides and amino acids, respectively, produced by our bodies to maintain our skins' health and youthfulness. 

While Bache De Mar aims for its products to be as natural and unprocessed as possible, not all skincare ingredients are stable, effective, safe or available in their natural forms. Specifically, the natural versions of the two peptides in Matrixyl 3000 and the amino acids in HA are very unstable when extracted organically, and actually, degrade and disappear at alarming rates as we age! So, by incorporating the Regeneration Serum into your routine, you'll be adding the highest quality and radically effective synthetic versions of these ingredients to BOOST what remains and ultimately replace what is lost by your own body.

You can rest assured knowing that we endeavor to formulate our products with only the best soothing, low-hazard, and skin-transforming ingredients. We strive to be as safe as possible for YOU while also being transparent with YOU and providing YOU with the most efficacious yet luxurious skincare available.

 

What do you leave out of your formulations?

 It’s not just what you put in skincare that counts, but what you leave out! 

Nowadays, it is very easy for skincare to plaster daring price-tags on products saturated with harsh chemicals, unnecessary fillers, and dirty cheap ingredients… all for the sake of a simple label and large-scale, low-cost manufacturing that squeezes as much money out of you as possible (and keeps you coming back with empty promises because you see no, or negative (eek!), results).

 

What does clean formulations mean?

Well, we take the concept of quality over quantity seriously!

Our serum, made on a small-scale and containing carefully considered and researched ingredients exclusive to Baché de Mar. As well as all top-tier in quality and their research-(not just review)-backed results, is made with YOU, your health and your skin at the forefront of our minds.

We create clean formulations, we are 100% paraben-free, and avoid lots of other harsh, cheap, dirty, and unnecessary ingredients too. We're talking FREE FROM *take a big breath*:

silicones, dyes, essential oils, glycols/PEGS, heavy metals, GMOs, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, SLS, chemical sunscreens, retinyl palmitate (palm oil/ palm oil derivatives), BHAs/BHTs, formaldehyde, ethanolamine and more!

…All this is excluded without compromising YOUR skincare results because sacrificing quantity doesn't have to sacrifice quality! The minimal skincare trend is here, and here to stay, so we’re embracing that wholeheartedly!

How do you source your sea cucumber extract?

We source a high-quality certified organic sea cucumber extract which is the key ingredient in our formulas. Our supplier uses classic conventional methods of extraction, with the sea cucumber being ethically sourced from wild harvested raw material. Our supplier is an FDA registered facility in the USA, with a love for plants and respect for Nature.

Is your packaging recyclable?

100% Yes, Bache De Mar is concerned about the environment and it translates its Eco "Attitude" into a "Responsible Recycling Packaging". Our bottles, boxes, brochures and shipping bags are all recyclable.

When your Sea Cucumber Collagen Regeneration Serum is finished, you can easily separate the clean plastic bottle from the pouch that contained the product and dispensing components. These two elements can then be disposed of separately, each one in its proper recycling chain.

 

Why do you use airless packaging?

Our first priority is always the safety and effectiveness of the formula. To protect our formulations we use the airless pouch system that helps to preserve our sensitive natural cosmetic ingredients from deteriorating. The exterior air contamination is eliminated, that’s why we have a sensible reduction of preservatives in our formulations. Our airless pouch bottle guarantees a dispense rate of more than 95%, so you can guarantee you get the entire product paid for. 

Where are your products made?

Our formulations are made in a boutique laboratory in Australia.
