The ACQUIZHEN product range contains cleansers, creams, serums and more, that protects your body against ageing, while revitalising and improving the microcirculation of your skin – helping keep both you – and the planet – healthy and vibrant.
ACQUIZHEN combines accurate science with the best nature to create an innovation in skincare, which is both certified organic and sustainable. Naturally sourced ingredients are optimally formulated, based on research at the Dermal-Research-Laboratories, by Dr Erich Schulte, who has been at the forefront of skincare and skin improvement for decades. In creating the ACQUIZHEN skincare range, he has applied contemporary scientific knowledge to deliver active ingredients (which naturally occur in plants) in effective formulations.
We aim to use not only the purest ingredients but also the simplest and most effective extraction techniques to put active ingredients in our skincare range. Some ingredients used in ACQUIZHEN products are harvested from the wild. To meet our certification standards the harvesting of these products must be sustainable. We also aim to use ingredients which provide a fair wage to people at the plants source as well as maintaining the natural resources that they rely on.
COMMITTMENT TO THE ENVIRONMENT
Using ingredients that are harvested from organic or sustainable wild sources is only the first step in delivering our products in a considered manner. With a minimum of 99.20% of our active ingredients derived from natural sources we have responded to the logical as well as emotional motivation to embed sustainable business practice through the whole chain.
TREES FOR THE FUTURE
We plant one tree for every product purchased. ACQUIZHEN has partnered with Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization that plants trees around the world in communities struggling with severe problems related to deforestation; an agroforestry resource center helping people improve their rural livelihoods through the introduction of environmentally sustainable land management projects focused on beneficial tree planting.
We chose ECOCERT as our certifying body because it is internationally recognised, and because we felt that the standards emphasise that ACQUIZHEN’s products are derived from nature.
ECOCERT is the body that certifies all our products as organic as shown in the ECOCERT ORGANIC COSMETIC logo on product packaging. The ECOCERT standards apply to the products and to the manufacturing process by which they are made and also specifies respect and transparency towards to the consumer as well.
