Longé Philosophy

Our Philosophy

SKIN ORGAN

The first revolutionary idea of Longé philosophy was to present products which function equally well for both Face and Body at 360 degrees, by considering the Skin as an Organ. In fact the skin is more than a simple coating: it is the heaviest (3-4 kg) and most extensive (from 1.5 to 2 m2) organ of our body. The Longé line envisages only synergic creams capable of obtaining the same results over the whole surface of the body.

INGREDIENTS AND FORMULATION

The Longé challenge was to succeed in giving life to a new basic cosmetic line characterised by the absence of petrolatum (petroleum jelly, paraffinum liquidum, vaseline, mineral oil) and non sebum-like substances (which can interfere with regular skin transpiration), and by the limited use of silicon (below 1%), which is generally used in derma-cosmetics for its lubricant effect and silky feel but which, in the long term can dry the skin, produce a film-forming effect and constrain all the other ingredients and actives to remain on the skin’s surface.
We paid great attention not just to all the elements of the formula (actives, vitamins, phytosterols, antioxidants), but also to the cream base which transports them and which determines the effectiveness of the cosmetic product. The guiding concept of this adventure was to “Let the skin breath” avoiding attacking it with products which are not similar to it, but rather “pampering it” with others capable of maintaining the correct water/lipid ratio.
The essential concept for Longé philosophy is that a formula is just like one big harmonious sheet of music.

ETHICS AND ENVIRONMENT

We have decided to operate in the field of Derma-Eco-Cosmetics, embracing ethics as a fundamental principle of healthy entrepreneurial activity and creating products which can always maintain consumer promises, everything in a context of high technology and attention to the environment. Therefore, Longé tries as much as possible to combine organic substances with synthetic, safe and scientifically tested ones.
The same level of attention is also used for packaging selection and disposal methods suggested to consumers for every single product package.
