Where are your products made?
Our products are manufactured in the Netherlands from ingredients sourced within the European Union.
Who has developed your products and how are your products made?
Our products have been developed, and they are also manufactured, by a professional cosmetics laboratory in the Netherlands. This company also develops and produces cosmetic products for professional salons and SPAs. All cosmetics have been developed and are produced in accordance with European Cosmetics Directive (Regulation (EC) N° 1223/2009) and the local cosmetics laws and regulations in the Netherlands. All our products and ingredients are properly tested and a safety file for each products is prepared and maintained by the cosmetics producer. All our products are animal cruelty free.
What kind of ingredients do you use?
We use natural and organic ingredients that are gentle to the skin and that have an active function in the product. Our ingredients are meant to sooth, hydrate, nourish, protect, rejuvenate or otherwise have an anti-aging effect. We believe that if an ingredient does not serve a clear purpose, it should not be in the product. We don’t use empty ingredients just to fill the product quantity. We also limit the use of comedogenic ingredients that can clog pores and induce acne, which make our products suitable for all skin types.
Are your products actively working?
All our products are formulations made from natural actively working ingredients that are designed to fight the effects of aging. We believe that if an ingredient does not serve a clear purpose, it should not be in the product. We don’t use empty ingredients just to fill the product quantity.
Our active ingredients include:
Retinol – Retinoids reduce fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen. They also stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which improves skin color. Additional benefits include fading age spots and softening rough patches of skin. However, it takes three to six months of regular use before improvements in wrinkles are apparent—and the best results take six to twelve months.
Matrixyl Morphonics and Matrixyl Synthe6 – our products contain high active peptides that are well known for their fast-acting anti-wrinkle effect.
Hyaluronic Acid – this ingredient hydrates the dermis while a natural silicon replacement optimizes the epidermis. Did you know that around 50% of the body’s total hyaluronic acid is present in the skin? Changes in this amount, possibly due to UV exposure, can lead to the formation of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid can significantly decrease the depth of wrinkles and enhance skin firmness and elasticity. One 2014 study involved women applying hyaluronic acid topically, twice daily, for 8 weeks. The study reported up to a 40% decrease in the depth of wrinkles and an up to 55% increase in skin firmness and elasticity compared with participants who did not apply the acid.
Vitamin C & E antioxidants protect skin cells from damage.
What makes your products special?
We maximize the actively working ingredients in our products. That means that for the same quantity of product we offer our clients more actively working ingredients. Our products are meant to be used in combination with our face massage. We are therefore unique in our total anti-aging solution: Face Massage + Anti-Aging Cosmetics.
For which ages and skin types are your products suitable?
We use natural and organic ingredients that are gentle to the skin and that have an active function in the product. We also limit the use of comedogenic ingredients that can clog pores and induce acne, which make our products suitable for all skin types.
Our cosmetics are meant to fight the symptoms of aging. We recommend that you start using our products from the moment you start noticing the first signs of skin aging, typically from your late twenties.
Will your products remove my wrinkles?
Our cosmetics are meant to fight the symptoms of aging. We recommend that you start using our products from the moment you start noticing the first signs of skin aging, typically from your late twenties. The longer you wait, the more time your skin will have to develop deep wrinkles and other signs of aging. The more severe the signs of aging are, the longer it takes to reduce them.
Our products are meant to be used in combination with regular face massage, and a healthy lifestyle. A healthy lifestyle includes proper nutrition and water intake and avoiding known causes of skin aging such as smoking!
When you use our products, and you do our face massages, and follow a normal healthy lifestyle, you will see lasting anti-aging rejuvenation of your skin, and your skin will glow.
How does your product work together with face massages?
To effectively fight aging, you need face massages to work from the outside in, and you need the right cosmetics to work from the inside out. Our unique solution combines face massages and our own developed actively working anti-aging cosmetics. Our anti-aging cosmetics contain actively working ingredients that nourish the skin and that fight the signs of aging from the inside out. You will get the most effective results when you combine our face massage with our actively working anti-aging cosmetics.
Many of our face massages will work better if you use a lubricating cream or oil. Creams typically work best for short massages as the cream quickly absorbs into the skin. For longer face massages, for example with the Gua Sha, or if you want to give your face muscles a long and deep massage, you need a more lasting lubricant.
Van Den Broek Life launched our Anti-Aging Booster Serum, which is the best solution for face massage because it is a wonderful lubricant and because we have packed it with active anti-aging ingredients. We have formulated this serum with powerful anti-aging ingredients that moisturize and soothe the skin and enhance the skin’s elasticity. These ingredients help to boosts collagen formation, and reduce both inflammation and sun damage.
How long will your products last?
Our products have a concentration of actively working ingredients and as such you don't need much product. We recommend using a single pump of cream for the face and a single pump of cream for the neck and decolletage.
If used in this way, a bottle of product can last about 3 months.
What is the expiration date of your products?
Our products are guaranteed to last for at least 12 months after opening.
Can you products be used during pregnancy?
Only for the cream containing retinol, it is not recommended to use this product when you try to conceive or during pregnancy.
How long does it take to receive your products?
Within the European Union/EEA, the delivery time is usually 5 – 10 working days, from the day the order is shipped.
Outside the European Union/EEA, the delivery time depends on several factors, including the destination and time it takes for local customs authorities to process the order. This is out of our control. We have seen that the total delivery time to, for example, Russia and other CIS countries typically takes 10 - 15 working days from the day that the order is shipped. The aforementioned delivery times are estimates only.
Do you have express shipping options?
We have contracted with DHL Express to provide Express shipping with delivery times of 1 – 5 business days for the most common destinations.
Is my order subject to tax?
Within the EU, your order will be subject to the VAT rate of your country of residence.
Shipments to countries outside of the European Union may result in additional taxes and import duties. Unfortunately, we are not able to confirm the exact amount of this and we recommend that you contact your local customs office to verify.
