Meet the Maker: Bioelements
How did your company get started?
Bioelements was founded by an esthetician, Barbara Salomone – considered an architect of the modern facial, and one of the first-ever licensed estheticians in the US. In the 1970s and 80s, she became the go-to expert for educating skin care pros on facials, ingredients and techniques. In 1991, she developed the Bioelements line to fill the need for professional products and treatments that effectively target the uniqueness and range of all skin types and concerns.
Tell us about your company mission.
Many lines throw the word “pro” around. But Bioelements is the real thing. No hype, no gimmicks, and no false claims. Simply put, we deliver high levels of effective, potent ingredients, and utilize the best that science and nature can deliver – only when it’s good enough for the esthetician in a treatment room, will it be good enough for at-home use.
What are the best practices for taking care of our skin?
Think like a skin care professional: only use professional-quality products. They are formulated specifically to deliver real results. Professional products are also highly potent – only a small amount of a formula is needed. And be consistent – a professional skin care line formulates its products to work well together to achieve the best results. When you mix and match products from multiple lines, you'll see less effective results, and run the risk of irritation, breakouts or dryness.
What are the benefits of moisturizing skin?
Normal aging, incorrect product usage, UV rays and even unavoidable pollution can cause your skin to experience an increase in trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL). Through TEWL, the skin loses its ability to absorb and retain moisture, resulting in weaker skin. Weaker skin means a visible increase in lines, rough texture, sagging and irritation. Moisturizing is crucial to keep skin strong and healthy.
