Made on sterilized equipment using "clean technique".
These are just "cosmetic products" so why bother sterilizing? With my background as a hospital pharmacist, I have made compounded sterile products for many years, which requires aseptic technique. I believe that applying these same principles in the skin care product making process is essential for delivering the most clean, safe product possible.
Aseptic technique is used in hospitals to make compounded sterile products, basically anything that is for intravenous use. This involves the dilution and or extraction of a medication from a vial that will go into a bag of fluid to be administered to the patient. The compounder is starting out with sterilized products, to goal being to keep them that way. These products must be sterile to go directly into a patients vein. The compounder wears a hair bonnet, gloves, and mask to prepare these products. He or she also sterilized all work surfaces, medication vials, and any other equipment needed with 70% isopropyl alcohol in order to kill microorganisms. I apply these same techniques to process these products. The only difference is that these skin care products are not considered a sterile product because they are not made from sterile ingredients, but I use components of aseptic technique, such as sterilized equipment, mask, hair bonnet and gloves, to prepare products. That is why the term "clean technique" is used. This is optimal for your health and safety.
