    Tocopherol (Vit E)

    Vitamin E is your skin's shield against environmental damage, actively fighting signs of aging caused by UV rays and pollution. It promotes healing and relief from skin irritations like eczema, while effectively regulating oil balance for a clearer complexion. Essential for keeping skin hydrated and supple, Vitamin E strengthens your skin's natural barrier, preventing dryness for a smooth, youthful appearance.


    Jojoba hydrates your skin, locking in moisture for a fresh, plump feel without clogging pores. It mirrors your natural oils, balancing oil production for a clear, healthy complexion. Rich in vitamin E, it shields your skin from environmental damage, while soothing and healing common skin issues like acne and dryness, leaving your skin smooth and comfortable.


    Glycerin is a natural moisturizer that draws water to your skin, keeping it hydrated and preventing dryness. It strengthens your skin's barrier, protecting against irritants and boosting skin's resilience, making it healthier and more robust. Additionally, glycerin aids in healing, has mild germ-fighting properties, and replenishes essential moisturizing factors, keeping your skin soft and supple as you age.


    Argan oil delivers a burst of nourishment to your skin, protecting it from daily environmental stress and keeping it looking healthy and vibrant. Its deep moisturizing ability leaves your skin feeling soft and supple, while also calming redness and helping to heal acne scars. Perfect for everyday use, this lightweight, non-greasy oil enhances your skin's natural beauty without clogging pores.


    Aloe is a skin care powerhouse, packed with vitamins, minerals, and natural compounds that provide a range of benefits from anti-inflammatory to antimicrobial actions. It's renowned for accelerating the healing of wounds and soothing skin irritations like burns, reducing redness and fighting infections. Aloe also plays a key role in anti-aging by boosting the production of vital skin components like hyaluronic acid and collagen, while its anti-acne properties and natural hydration make it ideal for maintaining smooth, clear, and well-moisturized skin.


    Camelina oil, extracted from the Camelina Sativa plant, is a rich source of essential fatty acids that nourish and protect your skin and hair. It's great for reducing inflammation, making it helpful for skin and scalp conditions like eczema and dandruff. Packed with antioxidants, camelina oil guards against environmental damage, while also regulating oil production and locking in moisture. This oil improves the texture and elasticity of your hair and skin, making them softer, smoother, and healthier.


    Chamomile, packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents, deeply soothes the skin, reducing redness and calming irritations. Its astringent properties help tighten pores and smooth the skin, while its brightening effects work to fade acne scars and even out skin tone.

    Le gel à raser

    Je suis un fan du gel à raser depuis de longues années. La raison principale est que j'aime bien voir où je coupe avec un outil très tranchant. Oh, les coupures surviennent encore mais moins souvent et elles sont moins graves.
    Le gel de rasage de Basic Maintenance Lab est le meilleur des 8 ou 10 que j'ai essayés depuis toutes ces années. J'ai arrêté de chercher ! J'ai trouvé MON gel ;-) Sérieux.

    Great product

    You should make a 500ml bottle to fit butter in bottle holders mounted on walls
