Would you put in your mouth what you put on your skin?
The skin is the beginning of a secondary digestive system – much of what our skin is exposed to, we take in with incredible rapidity, straight to our bloodstream and lymph. In sight of this, it is of course important to scrutinize the purity and safety of all personal care items (especially those which are applied and left on such as creams, lotions, deodorants, etc.), but it is also an opportunity to feed the body!
BECOME is full of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, omega fatty acids, phytonutrients, anti-inflammatories, active enzymes and more. You feed your body through your skin.
The majority of our ingredients are sourced from the sea. Just over a hundred years ago, René Quinton (a french biologist) published his studies comparing the ocean ecosystem with the ecosystem of the human body in a book called Seawater : Organic Milieu. In this research, he remarks that seawater closely resembles the density and balance of human blood plasma and lymph. He concluded that purified isotonic seawater carrying algae-based phytonutrients could be used to treat a number of ailments including infectious diseases. He was the first to create a saline solution for medical use.
Quinton is the backbone of the BECOME chemistry. Each BECOME product is built upon a foundation of algae and seaweed extracts, most notably Laminaria, Fucus and Porphyra Algaes. These not only assist with beauty-based concerns, such as collagen-production, cellular renewal, melanin/pigmentation consistency, skin elasticity and strengthening of the connective tissue matrix (to reduce fine lines and wrinkles), but also delivers a wonderfully potent dose of antioxidants, vegetal enzymes, and minerals.
