Pioneers in Italy, RF Cosmetics laboratories can boast the harmonization between High-Tech Cosmetics and Natural Cosmetics: a choice that unreservedly combines beauty and well-being both for people and the environment.
The formulation of each product of Nuage de Beauté is the result of deep knowledge, expertise and cutting-edge technologies. It is the expression of the willingness to sublimate the natural elements and to capture their essence. From the simple, authentic perfection of nature, it is about reaching the heart of the materials and drawing from them all their potential, turning it into energy and support for the skin. This is the reason why Nuage de Beauté products are extremely effective and their benefits are astonishing and immediately visible.
RF Cosmetics was founded in 1995, and it has become over the years an established research site where experimentation, formulation and production are provided for the same companies to which technical consultancy was provided before. Its beating heart is the team of developers, the in-house researchers who perform independent studies and tests on new formulations, as well as the work commissioned by client companies.
The mission of its team is to find innovative solutions using the latest technology, with constant adaption to changes in society. The future of cosmetics deals with an era of global mobility, in which the international borders are fading away and influences and cultures blend together. Today more than ever people, and particularly women, have to seek a balance between their traditions and new habits. Cosmetics thus become a means by which women can express their individuality and at the same time maintain a link with their origins.
Nuage de Beauté embraces the commitment of being eco-friendly using sustainable ingredients. RF Cosmetics is continuing to innovate and every year the company invests a substantial portion of its turnover in reducing the environmental impact: the cooling water of the manufacturing plant for example is 100% recycled, avoiding a huge waste of water. RF adopted physical, rather than chemical, sanitizing systems, using ozone generators (notoriously used in swimming pools) to make the process water perfectly clean and to purify the wastewater too.
RF Cosmetics takes care to respect the environment, from the extraction of raw materials until their processing and their recyclable packaging. We avoid the use of ingredients such as additives and supplements of animal origin or obtained from genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The entire production cycle does not involve contact with substances of animal origin or alcohol that may induce alteration and sensitization.
THE DEFENSE OF THE SKIN
Premature skin aging is associated with chrono and photo-aging and mainly through exposure to contaminants. Pollution can trigger the oxidative stress which affects DNA and causes lipid peroxidation. The consequence is a dull complexion, a tired appearance and the loss of elasticity. To provide a barrier between the skin and pollutants, increase our defences and keep the complexion clear, bright and free from discoloration, Nuage de Beauté uses exclusive active ingredients in combination with powerful anti-radicals. In this way the harmful effects of the environment are reduced and our skin barrier is strengthened and replenished.
The nature infused in the Nuage de Beauté collection defends the skin from the excess of technology that characterizes our time. Recent studies have shown that the factors responsible for photo-aging are not only the UVA and UVB rays, but also the blue light. Blue light, also known as high-energy visible light (HEV), is a part of natural sunlight, but much of the blue light we are exposed to today comes from electronic devices: smartphones, tablets, computers and TVs. Scientists have observed that HEV has the potential to penetrate and damage all the layers of skin, and its surface then shows the main signs of the oxidative stress such as wrinkles, loss of tonicity and skin discoloration. A rich blend of botanical extracts obtained by enzymatic bioliquefaction protects the skin both from harmful high-energy UV radiation and from the blue light emitted from electronic devices.
IPhoto-aging is counteracted by using specific active ingredients able to reduce the damage caused by UVA and UVB rays, and by adding a few drops of a revolutionary sunscreen that turns every formulation of Nuage the Beauté into a protective screen against sun exposure.
For Nuage de Beauté the cherry blossom is a symbol of delicacy, hope and feminine beauty: a grace that has the power to take care of our skin. The extract of a flower so fragile appears to be a precious ally, essential in fighting aging.
The extract of the cherry blossom has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It promotes epidermal cohesion by increasing firmness and elasticity of the tissues. It also counteracts the action of free radicals resulting from exposure to sunlight and radiation emitted by electronic devices as sources of blue light.
The extract of a flower so fragile appears to be a precious ally, essential in fighting aging. Its cultivation takes place in a sustainable way for the environment and its harvest is done by hand without damage to the tree. The dedicated supply chain to obtain the extract allows us to ensure full compliance with the criteria for purity and maximum effectiveness.
Nuage de Beauté is compatible with a conscious beauty, it is the ideal choice for the woman who wants to take care of herself while remaining consistent with her values of cruelty-free products, Vegan and Halal. The whole staff collaborated to search for valid alternatives and to avoid the use of common raw materials that nowadays are traditional but obsolete. Thus, the extracts obtained using alcohol were replaced with those using ultrasound. Those obtained using animal derivatives were replaced with perfect substitutes derived from plants. What initially seemed a disadvantage has turned into a step forward in technological evolution.
Halal certification is a guarantee of extreme pureness and gives the consumers the reassurance of using a high-performance cosmetic which both respects their health and the integrity of the values they want to preserve. Many raw materials commonly used in cosmetics, unlawful according to the Islamic religion, seemed indispensable. The aim of creating a cosmetic free from alcohol, from substances derived from animals such as collagen and elastin, from eye-catching colours such as red, sometimes seemed utopian and unrealizable. The whole staff collaborated to search for valid alternatives and to avoid the use of common raw materials that nowadays are traditional but obsolete. Thus, the extracts obtained using alcohol were replaced with those using ultrasound. Those obtained using animal derivatives were replaced with perfect substitutes derived from plants. What initially seemed a disadvantage has turned into a step forward in technological evolution.
The entire Nuage de Beauté line is dermatologically tested in order to minimize irritation and assess the skin’s compatibility to cosmetic formulations, so as to make products safe and tolerable even for the most sensitive and delicate skins. All products are subjected to Patch Test, a diagnostic tool used to identify the presence of any substances that once in contact with the skin can cause irritation and contact dermatitis.
Although they are considered safe substances for their toxicological profile, they can induce irritation, contact allergies and adverse reactions in particularly sensitive individuals. Nuage de Beauté ensures the absence of parabens throughout its line, to guarantee maximum tolerability even on the most delicate skin.
Nuage de Beauté skin care products are scientifically formulated with ingredients designed to gently treat all skin types. The entire collection does not contain by-products or derivatives of animal origin such as cochineal red, lanolin, beeswax and honey.
The gluten contained in products for topical use such as cosmetics, while not involving in any way any risk for coeliacs, can determine in some predisposed individuals phenomena of irritation or adverse reactions. These people have a "non-celiac gluten sensitivity" (Gluten Sensitivity), which is a form of cutaneous intolerance to gluten sources. Gluten-free indication allows an informed decision to those with "non-celiac gluten sensitivity" (Gluten Sensitivity). Nuage de Beauté ensures the absence of gluten throughout its line.
