THE TECCO TRUTH
What does Tecco mean?
Tecco is the collision of tech and eco. Our skincare formulations are created using clean biotechnology and natural ingredients. Tecco is vegan and cruelty-free.
What's “clean” skincare?
Clean skincare formulas contain both natural and/or synthetic non-toxic ingredients. At Tecco, we don't use synthetic fragrances or dyes.
Clean biotechnology is the science of using living organisms (in our case, plants & algae) to make products. Medical and agricultural experts have been using biotechnology for years — and now it's finally having its moment in the beauty industry.
Believe it or not, using biotechnology is cleaner and more sustainable than sourcing natural ingredients straight from the Earth. How? Because when you create these ingredients in a lab setting, it uses less energy and resources. And because it's produced in a more controlled environment, you can guarantee it's free of harmful toxins and pesticides. Thanks to biotechnology, we're able to deliver better, greener, and more effective products for you and the planet.
What does it mean to be “filler-free”?
Fillers decrease the potency of products and can irritate the skin. Diluting products with cheap, artificial fillers increases profit margins so companies can make more money.
With Tecco, you get no fillers and no bullsh*t.
Here's a list of fillers and ingredients we'll never use:
- silicone: dimethicone, cyclomethicone, cyclopentasiloxane
- harmful drying alcohols: denaturated alcohol, isopropyl alcohol, SD alcohol, ethanol, ethyl alcohol, methanol, benzyl alcohol
- artificial fragrances
- essential oils
- synthetic dyes
- mica: irritates the skin, sometimes sourced from companies with unethical working conditions, sometimes sourced from illegal mines
- palm oil: wreaks havoc on the environment, leads to rainforest deforestation, habitat degradation
