Verification of the air quality of the manufacturing laboratories
Cleanliness is BIOTIC Phocea’s calling card for the manufacture of its pigments and cosmetic products.
For this purpose, we ensure that our products are manufactured and packaged in “clean rooms”, meaning that the air quality in our production areas is controlled.
These controlled-atmosphere rooms are inspected yearly, guaranteeing manufacturing conditions of near-complete purity.
The purpose of these production rooms is to minimize the introduction of pollutants (bacteria, dust etc.) into these areas and thereby minimize product contamination during production.
Security and compliance of raw materials
Only analysis reports produced by independent organizations using the methods recommended by European Council resolution ResAp (2008)1 demonstrate the compliance of the raw materials used to manufacture these pigment dispersions, commonly known as “permanent makeup pigments”.
BIOTIC Phocea chooses to have all of its raw materials analysed and to only use those that are 100% compliant. Whether synthetic or natural, organic or mineral, the raw materials approved by BIOTIC Phocea guarantee that your permanent makeup pigments are safe and fully compliant with current legislation.

In addition, Laboratoires BIOTIC Phocea performs skin tolerance and eye irritation tests for maximum safety.
Below you will find an example of these two tests conducted with black pigment, as it is the most sensitive colour due to its use near the eye (eyeliner):
We would like to draw your attention to the importance of these tests, particularly the cytotoxicity test which allows us to offer you the purest possible products, particularly for pigments used near the eye.
