Prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics are powerful, natural ingredients that help balance your skin microbiome (a community of micro-organisms that live on your skin). They’re great for helping your skin get back into its happy state - consider them as the ultimate skin superfood.

Our all-fermented microbiome skincare is designed and formulated to provide all these benefits.

What is unique about Circulove products is that each and every active ingredient is fermented, including oils. All-fermented biotics is a completely new, holistic approach to skincare. The levels of probiotics, antioxidants and vitamins are naturally amplified in the products through bio-fermentation, so nothing supplemental is added.

The main ingredients we use:
NATURAL BERRY SEED-OILS - bi-products from the food industry - Raspberry, Strawberry, Blueberry, Blackcurrant - all rich in antioxidants, omegas and essential fatty acids (like GLA).
Nordic wild herbs & plants like oat, lady’s mantle, willow bark: carefully selected for their nutrient properties that help with specific skin issues. These plants are selected also based on both their individual function and their mutual synergy.

Natural Scent - unique, fresh scent from cucumber, white and green tea.

Clean Beauty is made without ingredients suspected to harm human wellbeing or our planet. Contrary to popular belief, our skin is not an effective barrier. Up to 60% of everything we put on our skin goes into the body. 

Circulove products are formulated to the highest standards in the world, the European Union standards, banning over 1,300 toxins, to ensure our products are safe for our bodies and planet (vs. just 11 cosmetics ingredients currently banned by FDA in the U.S.)

All our products are free from mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, silicones, chemical sunscreen, nano zinc oxide, essential oils, colorants or perfumes. GMO-Free. 

Circulove uses pure, food-grade oils and collect approx. 85% of our ingredients from Finland (the cleanest country in the world by EPI index 2016).

Circulove is certified natural cosmetics (FI-Natura).

Finished formulas are thoroughly tested for efficacy, purity and safety according to the strongest European Union cosmetics regulations.

We’ve chosen to use food-grade active oils in our products that secures 99.8% purity (contrary to typical cosmetics oils of 70% purity). Our pure oils are used in the sustainable food industry, too. 

“Free-from”, “Natural”, “Green” or “Eco” have no clear definitions. That’s why we decided to be fully transparent. You can find our full ingredient list and their origin on each product page.

Our products are made in Finland, Europe. Approximately 85% of our ingredients are sourced locally from Finland, the cleanest country in the world*, to secure transparency and pureness.

Because of the slow fermentation process we use, which is a natural preservation method for thousands of years,  we only need to use one  natural “preservative” that is permitted by Ecocert approved or Made Safe approved (USA) certification. The preservative we use is considered natural because it’s ingredient can be found in nature. The airless bottles we use also secure the freshness and hygiene of the product. 

One of the major causes of premature skin aging and irritation is the excessive use of beauty products. Every superfluous product and every needless ingredient irritates the skin and causes micro damage.

The Best Before Date can be found stamped on the bottom of our bottles (normally 2 years from production when unopened). After opening, our products will remain potent for 6 months.

 

The batch number can always be found stamped on the bottom of our bottles and it guarantees the traceability of our products. 

Recycle the bottle according to your country’s plastic recycling system. By using recyclable PP in both bottle and label, recycling is easier.

We produce small batches in a family-owned, green chemistry factory in Finland to ensure your products are always fresh at the purchase time – not 36 months self-time like many of the mass-produced traditional skincare products out there might be.

 

Our airless bottles are designed to secure product efficacy, to keep contents germ free and to ensure you only use the right amount so nothing is wasted.

Plastic is often considered “bad” but its reuse and recycling is possible thus an effective “closed loop”, so in that sense it is a good material. 

 

We are using recyclable PP for easier recycling and post-consumer recycled materials like Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP 30%). The OWP plastic material is collected from the Java Sea, so we are part of ocean clean up movement in a concrete way. Our bottles are 100% recyclable. 

 

Plastic is also a light material, which lowers carbon footprint in transportation. 

 

Our airless plastic bottle is especially designed for all-natural skincare products to secure freshness and convenient use (non-breakable)
