Frequently Asked Questions
Q/ What makes Bella Aura so unique compared to everything else on the market?
A/ Bella Aura is your complete skincare solution. We want to take the confusion that exists in the beauty industry by simplifying lifestyles. We'd rather have a few products that work, than lots of products that don't: Less is More. Bella Aura’s philosophy centres on treating the root of imbalance to restore skin's youthful health + vitality, to protect skin from everyday environmental stressors, and to defy free radicals.
Q/ What is an emulsion?
A/ Emulsions are water-based moisturizers with oil; they are the combination of a serum and a cream. Serums contain a powerful blend of complex vitamins and nutrients. Additionally, serums contain smaller molecules that penetrate deeper into the skin but lack moisturizing properties. Creams are typically made with water or oil and contain larger molecules that don't penetrate the skin as well. Emulsions combine the best qualities of a serum and a cream. They are lightweight and absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a greasy residue, and they don’t clog pores. Emulsions are also suitable for all skin types.
Q/ What do you mean by “Let's get to the root of the problem”?
A/ The major cause of skin aging including wrinkles, acne, pigmentation, and weakened wound healing ability is ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). ROS is produced by living organisms as a result of normal cellular metabolism and environmental factors, such as air pollutants or cigarette smoke. It is a form of oxygen in which the molecular structure has been changed. It behaves like a free radical. The skin can be treated and protected from the injurious effects of ROS by using powerful antioxidants like Hydroxytyrosol, which is found in olive leaf extract in our formulations. Additionally, ROS has an ORAC value (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity: its ability to absorb cell-damaging free radicals) of 68,576, which is considered to be 15 times higher than green tea.
Q/ What is unique about the Bella Aura Formulas?
A/ Bella Aura’s breakthrough formula is a serum in a cream emulsion designed to boost the microcirculation in the skin and prop up the metabolism with the most powerful Swiss bio-actives and antioxidants. It delivers a hi-tech, brightening solution for all skin types and tones. The concentrated formula is a complete approach to revitalize and energize skin cells and provide the energy needed. It penetrates deeply into the epidermis and nourishes the skin at the targeted cell level.

A/ Yes, Bella Aura products are suitable for all skin types, concerns, and tones. It is even exceptional for sensitive / rosacea-prone complexions. We have customers from all over the globe, with various skin concerns and complexion types, enjoying our products!
Q/ What areas of concern do you see in this industry?
A/ The main concern I see is that people think that the more products they use, the more better results they will get. In actuality, who has time for a 12-step skincare regime? We believe that purity, honesty, and simplicity are the keys to restoring your skin to its natural beauty. You don't need 12 different layers of products. In fact, excessive moisturizing makes your skin lazy and stops it from producing its own natural moisture. Simplicity is key!
Q/ Why is it important for skincare products to be natural / nontoxic?
A/ Over 60% of what we apply to our skin is absorbed into the bloodstream. This is why we absolutely avoid all possible toxic ingredients in our formulations. If we’re careful about what we put into our bodies – i.e. seeking out and consuming natural/organic foods – shouldn’t we also be as careful about what we put on our skin? Your skin is also your largest organ, we should be protecting it and taking care of it as best as we can.

A/ Bella Aura's selection of high-performance ingredients are hydroxytyrosol, peptides, polysaccharides, niacinamide, ferulic acid, flavonoids, palmitic acid, proteasome, glutathione, Omega 3-6-9 fatty acids, 100 minerals, amino acids, caffeic acid, quercetin, Vitamins A,E,C,K,F,P,D and B complex. The concentrated formula is a complete skincare approach to the revitalization and energizing of facial skin cells, and provides the energy needed to improve and stabilize the natural ecology of our delicate skin.
Q/ What's a skincare secret that you wish more people knew?
A/ My advice to everyone is to listen to your skin. Just because someone is using a product, it might work fine for them, however it doesn't mean it's a going to do the same for you. My skincare secret is skin fasting once or twice a week. Wash your face with only water in the morning because excessive washing can really strip away your natural moisture barrier. Go makeup less. I strongly believe simple steps can change your skin for the better.
Q/ Do you test on animals?
A/ Absolutely not.
Q/ Are your products vegan?
A/ All our products except for the Gentle Purifying Cleanser ( 100% vegan ) contain polyglyceryl-3 Beeswax, which is derived from beeswax.
