PIONEERS OF ARTISAN COSMETICS

Pao has developed a process called ‘Chauffage Doux’ inspired from ‘Sous Vide’ in the Michelin starred cooking industry. Slow heating gives the ingredients time to bind harmoniously in a temperature controlled environment keeping all the goodness within the raw ingredients whilst creating a perfectly smooth light emulsion.

MOLECULAR COSTRONOMY

Chauffage Doux keeps the binding temperature at a precise level so the protein contraction occurs horizontally up to that temperature, so most of the botanicals held within the oils and butters are retained. There’s also one other factor to consider when talking about chauffage doux, and that’s collagen, the vitamins that contain the anti-oxidant properties. As collagen vitamins are heated to high temperatures they begin to contract and denature, becoming a gelatinous substance that adds a greasy glide to high street cosmetics.

“Chauffage Doux’ – The Art of Temperature Control

CX INSPIRATION

UK HANDMADE

Gentle hand whisking allows air bubbles to create a lightness as the ingredients ribbon together. Pincerna products are not agitated or filtered giving them the raw goodness of nature and the smoothness of silk.

OPEN KITCHEN

Pao creates silky cosmetics within an open kitchen, gently fusing handpicked ingredients with soft emulsifiers. A lightness of touch, the art of temperature control with a hand balloon whisk ribboning water drawn from organic land with unrefined pure oils. Preserved with natural vitamin E and grapefruit to maintain the natural sheen of his handmade emulsions so they absorb straight into the dermis.
