Our philosophy

Sustainable ingredients

We use ingredients from the shortest possible supply chain, so we produce many of them ourselves or get them from the local area. All ingredients are from ethical production and fair trade. They are also as little processed as possible. The products do not contain refined fats, palm oil and animal fats.

Traditional recipes

We respect the local tradition of making natural cosmetics. Soaps are made with the traditional cold process. They carry the Slovenian Handicraft Certificate. Cosmetics also contain extracts made by traditional maceration procedures.

The latest scientific findings

The products are created taking into account the latest scientific findings in the field of cosmetology, toxicology and ecology. We upgrade traditional recipes with sustainable ingredients, the effectiveness of which is supported by scientific research.

Why are Nona Luisa® cosmetics sustainable?

We use safe ingredients

During my doctoral studies in toxicology, I became more familiar with the ingredients that surround us every day. While analyzing cosmetics on the market, I found that many products contain unsustainable ingredients that can also be hazardous to health. In addition, they impoverish the skin in the long run and cause many skin problems.

That's why in my products I don't use mineral oils, artificial fragrances, parabens, aluminum, sulfates and other unsustainable ingredients that could be a danger to our health and skin.

We work in harmony with nature

As an ecologist, I am also concerned about the many negative effects of commercial cosmetics on the environment. Their main ingredients are from non-renewable sources, the products have a long mileage, are made with energy-intensive technological processes, are not biodegradable and are unsustainably packaged.

My artworks contain elements that respect sustainability and care deeply about the environment. The products have a minimal carbon footprint. They are concentrates, without unnecessary fillers, they consume less packaging and are more nourishing and durable.

We craft in a socially responsible way

Unfortunately, the economy of large cosmetic corporations is too often based on the exploitation of non-renewable resources, people and society as a whole.

The social aspect is also very important to me when it comes to choosing the ingredients. I always check their origins, make sure they are from fair trade, ethically sound, and I don’t use palm oil. I acquire, create and sell as many local products as possible. In this way, I can contribute the most to the local environment and at the same time provide fresh products of the highest quality. In business, I only work with socially responsible companies and family businesses.
