What is biotechnology?


Biotechnology involves the research into enzymes, cells and entire organisms in technological applications – combining and using knowledge from the fields of microbiology, biochemistry (chemistry), molecular biology, genetics and bioinformatics. This enables us to learn about the ageing process – the findings of which play an essential role in the development of ingredients used in ‘medical cosmetics’. Basically, medical cosmetics are cosmetic products that, instead of temporarily hiding skin problems or improving the texture of the skin, have a long-term, counteractive effect. The success of medical cosmetics primarily relies on the findings and expert medical knowledge gained from biological research – the ‘springboard’ for the timeblock® COSMETICS concept.

What is the philosophy behind timeblock?


The timeblock® brand positions itself on the precious feeling of well-being – a positive, perfectly balanced state of physical and mental well-being. This is characterised by a high level of vitality and productivity, as well as radiance, brought about by the body’s energy and efficient metabolic processes. timeblock® helps users to be a little more ‘themselves’ (balance), to feel more beautiful (self-esteem), to do themselves a good turn (indulgence, reward), to enjoy every period/moment in their life (acceptance, sensuality, pleasure). timeblock® users invest the luxury of time for the most important thing in life – themselves!
