Filler ingredients in skin care: What you need to know

Filler ingredients in skin care: What you need to know

You may be tempted to try inexpensive skin care in your journey to glowing skin, but have you ever wondered what the difference is between mass-produced, inexpensive products and professional, clinical formulas? It's all in the ingredients. The amount of active and key ingredients versus filler ingredients make a huge difference in the quality of your skin care and the results you see. Learn what to look for in your skin care:


Filler ingredients

While you may think that inexpensive, mass produced skin care is a big value, it may actually just be watered down formulas stuffed with filler ingredients. And some of these fillers have the potential to irritate and damage your skin, like parabens, artificial fragrances and dyes.

When you choose quantity over quality, you sacrifice the strength and efficacy of your products. This means you are much less likely to see the results you want from your skin care routine. Opt for professional strength products instead. You only need to use a small amount when there's a high concentration of active ingredients, so your products will last longer and save you money in the long run.


How to read a skin care label

Always check the ingredient labels on your skin care before purchasing. The order in which the ingredients are listed on your skin care labels matters. Skin care companies must list the ingredients in order of volume or weight, the largest first and the smallest last. Which means the higher up on the list the ingredient is on your skin care label, the more of it there is in that specific product.

If the product contains synthetic fragrances, 'parfum', artificial dyes, parabens, phthalates or DEA, it's not a high quality product that can truly help your skin – especially if they are high up on the list.

Forget the fluff and filler ingredients – learn why every single ingredient in your skin care matters.


Skin care with a purpose



Every single ingredient in a Bioelements formula serves a purpose and directly benefits the skin. We deliver what serious customers expect: the highest standards of quality and performance from the best skin care line. Estheticians and at-home users want real professional results. No hype, no gimmicks, no false claims – just high quality, effective ingredients that give you results.

Our professional facial products do not contain artificial colorants, synthetic fragrance or parabens.

"It's all about delivering high levels of effective, potent ingredients, and utilizing the best that science and nature can deliver – only when it's good enough for the skin care professional will it be good for the consumer." –Barbara Salomone, Bioelements President and Founder

Each Bioelements formula is like a recipe. It's designed to solve a skin concern and maintain healthy skin function. A formula is comprised of several different active and key ingredients from nature and science – and must all work together to achieve the goal.

The high quality and concentration of our ingredients means we don't need fillers to make up the difference.

Filler ingredients in skin care

 "View each formula as a sum of its parts, not just ONE ingredient that we hang our hat on. Each one serves its own purpose and is an important component that keeps the entire formula in balance, effective and safe for your skin." –Teresa Stenzel, Bioelements Director of Education
