Our philosophy consists of providing our customers with innovative cosmetic products and high quality formulations as simple as possible, without fragrances, colourants and tested for nickel and gluten.
The brand name VEA was created and developed by notable experience gained over the years, relatively to the activity of Vitamin E being able to work on sensitive skin or physiologically altered skin. The various formulations use the best raw materials on the market.
VEA products are designed for skin that is sensitive, allergic, or altered physiological conditions. Precisely for this reason our products contain the least number of ingredients possible, paying the utmost attention and care in selecting the ingredients based on their skin tolerance profile, avoiding the use of substances indicated by the dermatological literature as the most frequent cause of sensitization skin or contact allergies: perfumes, colourants and preservatives.
VEA products are designed for skin that is sensitive, allergic, or altered physiological conditions, minimizing the possibility of inducing allergic reactions and intolerances.
NICKEL AND GLUTEN TESTED
12 EXCLUSIVE PATENTS
Why Nickel Tested?
ACD (allergic contact dermatitis) is one of the most common causes of dermatitis in industrialized countries, amongst these; one of the most widespread is due to nickel, a metal particularly common in jewelry, detergent, cosmetics and coins.
The word «nickel tested» means monitoring for the presence of nickel in a product. In fact there are no cosmetics, or products which are totally nickel free, but only those with a very low concentration which are not able to trigger an allergic reaction. Concentration below which, according to scientific data, do not manifest into contact allergies due to nickel – and which therefore can be considered acceptable in cosmetic products - is equal to 0,0001% also referred to as 1 ppm.
With this data Hulka S.r.l. a socio unico monitors its products in order to ensure that the nickel content is always less than the threshold identified. With all the checks and continuous attention paid whilst selecting our raw materials, the way they are preserved and in every stage of processing has enabled us to develop products with a medium content of nickel which is found to be 0.00001%, equal to 0.1 ppm, 10 times lower than the reported literature content limits is deemed conventionally acceptable.
Why Gluten Tested?
Celiac disease is a food intolerance which targets organs of the small intestine.
It is believed that the presence of gluten in cosmetics, detergents, or other products which may come into contact with skin or mucous membranes, as well as those of the mouth, do not carry any risk of celiac disease. It is still possible that in certain cases (young children or the elderly) or in particular products (lip balms, protective of the oral cavity etc.) improper and / or accidental ingestion of these products can occurs: for this reason all the VEA products are tested for gluten.
Particular care is taken to avoid contamination, especially throughout the production phase, thus ensuring a value much lower in gluten than the threshold limit identified in available scientific evidence, which is equal to 20 ppm. The entire VEA line guarantees contamination of 10 ppm, therefore 50% lower than the threshold limit identified.
