Nº 1. 100% plant waters
We are the first manufacturer of cosmetics in the world to formulate skin care products exclusively with plant waters instead of plain water. Plant waters are invaluable for the skin cells because they boost the cells’ natural life energy and regeneration ability by replenishing them with precious vitamins and minerals.
Nº 2. Minimum of 98% natural ingredients
All Phenomé products are natural. It is our goal to produce only natural cosmetics, irrespective of their type and purpose. Phenomé products are manufactured in line with specific recommendations and standards developed by international bodies that certify natural and organic cosmetics. Our standards are even more restrictive than those required by the certification bodies. For example, Ecocert allows up to 5% synthetic content in a cosmetic formulation, whereas Phenomé products never contain more than 2% synthetic ingredients!
Nº 3. Certified organic ingredients
Phenomé products are formulated with premium quality certified organic ingredients which originate from the very best ecological sources. Our ingredients come from tried and tested sources — specialized suppliers of cosmetic raw materials — who conduct extensive laboratory and clinical research and tests in order to guarantee not only the high quality, but also the efficacy of their raw materials. Our products have a rich composition and are economical to use; we never economize on ingredients. Our cosmetics contain only the very best plant extracts and plant waters. Their components also include cold-pressed extra virgin oils – a rich source of unsaturated fatty acids – that we import especially for you from the remotest parts of the globe.
Organic certification means that the raw materials we use to manufacture Phenomé cosmetics are derived from plants that have been grown without chemical fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, and pesticides. None of the raw materials we use comes from genetically modified plants.
Nº 4. Ecological manufacturing processes
Our manufacturing processes meet the highest GMP standards and respect natural resources. Our cosmetic products are manufactured on a dedicated production line that complies with the most stringent quality and safety standards.

Nº 6. Animals are part of nature

Nº 7. Vegetarian cosmetics
Phenomé skin care products are suitable for use by vegetarians. We use no animal-derived ingredients except for products such as beeswax and honey.
Nº 8. Minimal use of raw materials other than natural ones
We only use ingredients other than natural ones if no effective counterpart of natural origin can be found to replace them. These ingredients are accepted by the certification bodies and are entered in the lists of cosmetic ingredients approved for use in the manufacture of organic cosmetic products.
Nº 9. Transparency
We have nothing to hide which is why both the packaging of Phenomé products and the website feature the “Phenomé Transparency Chart” – a table providing detailed information on the percentage share of particular ingredients in our products. Descriptions of the specific ingredients include all raw materials of natural and organic origin. Our website also provides information on all the raw materials that we use – all you have to do is click on the name of any ingredient listed in the product composition list in order to open up a description of it. Especially for you, we have also compiled a comprehensive Glossary which is not only an exhaustive source of information about the natural cosmetic ingredients we use in Phenomé, but is also a repository of knowledge on the ingredients used in nature-based cosmetology.
Nº 10. Packages made of recycled materials
Our product packaging is made of recycled materials and designed to be recycled and reused. Our cardboard boxes are composed of 80% waste paper and recycled fiber. Our PET and HDPE bottles are made of 100% recycled plastic packaging i.e. so-called PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) material.
We mostly use glass containers which are fully recyclable.
Nº 11. Used packaging collections campaign
Phenomé flagship store collects used cosmetic containers from their customers in order to have them recycled and reused as raw material for the production of next generations of packaging.
Nº 12. Conservations of natural resources
Caring for the natural environment is part of the Phenomé brand DNA. We do not want to contribute to the exploitation of any natural resources that cannot be easily replaced. This is why we strive continually to minimize our energy and water consumption by reducing, e.g., costs of transportation or the size of cardboard packaging.
