The SOBIOetic range from France uses only organic ingredients to give you naturally clear and radiant skin.
If you prefer to use natural skincare that’s free of artificial ingredients, like parabens, silicone and synthetic fragrances, the made-in-France SOBIOetic line is a must buy. The products are formulated with botanical ingredients and produced without synthetic materials or chemicals. They’re also certified organic by French organisation Ecocert, which awards the certification only when 90 per cent of the ingredients are grown organically. This is great news – not just for your skin but the environment, too – because it means the ingredients are extracted in a responsible and sustainable manner. Best of all, SOBIOetic is very affordable.
