The Science Of Ionic Exchange

Vital Oligo Science ( The Study of Science Of the minerals that are vital to our body) is the science of an Ionic exchange.

Ion exchange is most commonly known as negative ion energy. Negative Ion’s are molecules that exist in nature, UV, Sun Rays after thunder or lightning strike or the ocean or waterfall. Research shows that there are positive biochemical effects on the body, they can reduce inflammation, reduce symptoms of depression, activate cognitive performance boost energy and promote antimicrobial production. It’s like going to the ocean and the positive effects like a daily boost. So the negative energy gives back positive results. The negative ions usually describes a processes of purification of aqueous solutions using solid’s such as minerals in this case Clay minerals for the ion exchange. More precisely, the term encompasses a large variety of processes where ions are exchanged between two electrolytes.[1] This process purify’s and the technique is widely applied for purification and separation and used in medical and cosmetic applications!

We are deeply involved in the early stages of field sourcing in West Africa, Amazonia as well as Western France. We prioritize strong partnerships with local producers with the greatest attention to the long term impact of our involvement. Our team has more than ten years experience in that area. The raw materials selected by always very strict specifications with regard to environmental management, socio economic impact and product quality management. Our investment in ethical sourcing projects is not just philanthropic. We see it as the best guarantee for long term supply and quality insurance.

The raw materials we select are also the foundation of our research for the development of new natural active ingredients, with proven biological efficacy is very much inspired by Biomimicry. It consists in using nature’s genius to solve human problems. The solutions and techniques developed for millions of years in the biggest lab there is, Nature itself, are investigated and implemented to get the best of both Nature and Technology. Our meets the principal demands of the cosmetic market with original metabolic pathways.

Substitution of conventional ingredients with natural ingredients is just the first step of making natural cosmetics a reality. We think a new approach is necessary to allow natural cosmetic to reach their real potential and vie with conventional ones. Our experience led us to be convinced that, when properly designed and formulated, using modern, green chemistry principles, bio based materials are preferable. We think we have to re-design skincare starting with ingredients through formulation up to packaging. An application of this trend of research has been the development of several types of waterless and preservative free product concepts. A truly interdisciplinary approach is the key to solve these multi-factored problems.

A natural emulsion stabilizer for cold process

A hybrid material stems from a natural clay and a biomolecule. A technology able to stabilize an emulsion using a cold mechanical process. A notable gain in terms of time and energy saving. Frametime grades allow to prepare all kind of emulsion, from the cleansing milk to the facial cream trough the hair care and the cream development of active ingredients and new formulation concepts for the cosmetic industry. Immunocologie provides integrated solutions including specific raw materials, proven active ingredients and innovative extraction and production processes. We focus on what we believe to be the critical points of green cosmetic development. Sustainable sourcing, green extraction techniques, natural active ingredient design and original formulation solutions are at the very heart of our approach.

Immunocologie Founder – Karen Ballou

If you want to understand Immunocologie’s philosophy, it helps to get to know its founder, Karen Ballou.

Immunocologie was created by Karen, a veteran skincare executive, after she was diagnosed with cancer. As she recovered from the ravages of chemo, she made it her mission to create a safe, natural, effective skincare line designed to ensure skin health from the outside in.

Karen is an ingredient and formulation expert, a nutrition and skincare guru, and, following her diagnosis and recovery, an ardent believer in the importance of building a healthy immune system. She’s also a mom, wife, businesswoman, connector, and healthy living enthusiast.
