HelloECO is a Polish company which creates organic, ecological products for your skin.
Our list of ingredients is short and easy to grasp. Our products are skin-friendly and environment-friendly. There are no compromises, no cheap fillers and no shortcuts like synthetic preservatives because we know we can do better, different, healthier and safer. Our approach gives your skin finally the chance to be in a good condition.
We want to teach you how to consciously choose best products for you; how to read the list of ingredients; how not to be tempted by a beautiful packaging and wonderful promises. That is why we created HelloECO - from our desire to search for good ecological solutions, to inspire others and share our knowledge with you. Now we only do what makes us happy ;-)

Our message for our customers is:
Give your skin a break. Choose wisely. Do it for yourself :-)
Organic and ecological products
Our brand was created from our passion for healthy, simple, both skin- and environment-friendly skin care products that meet the needs of your skin and actually work. HelloECO creates organic, ecological products formulated without paraffin’s, mineral oils, SLS, parabens, PEGs or talc.
We know what should be inside your beauty box and what shouldn’t. .
Handmade from fresh and organic ingredients
All our products are handmade from organic ingredients that we choose consciously. We use cold-pressed and unrefined oils that are most rich in vitamins and nutrients. Our best oils come from certified crops, contain unsaturated fatty acids and organic UV filters. Thanks to them, your skin gets a chance to be in a good condition.
Our list of ingredients – short, simple and easy to grasp
We strive after minimalism, which means we believe that less is better. For this reason we use a short list of ingredients, without cheap fillers. This makes our products very efficient: even a small amount is enough to meet the needs of your skin. It is worth to choose consciously from the overflow that surrounds us. That is why each ingredient on our label (the so-called INCI, which by law must be in Latin) is explained in a clear way so that it becomes easy to understand. Thanks to this, everyone who chooses our products is able to understand what they contain. If you do not understand the ingredients on the list – simply do not buy the product.
Our commitments: this is how we work:
You will find both glass (bottles) and plastic (PET) in our packaging. We deliberately do not use glass where it is dangerous (e.g. a jar can break and glass particles may get into the product). Glass as such is not environmentally-friendly as it is difficult and expensive to recycle. It also needs to be washed before reuse which requires plenty of water – our precious resource. We are currently searching for a company which produces packaging from recycled materials (so called Bio-PET). If you produce such packaging, please contact us. We are looking for you! Unfortunately, this trend is not yet on the rise in Poland. We are also working hard on plastic packaging and that is why we give a second life to recycled materials. We outsource the production of accessories from RPET (recycled PET bottles). In this way we are taking steps to eliminate plastic by converting it into a new useful product. In a short time you will find such products in our offer so that you will be able to give ‘a second life’ to plastic ;-)
What can you do yourself? Please segregate our packaging into a proper waste container. Remove the unused product, separate the packaging from the cap and put it in the bin labelled ‘plastic’. In this way you will help us to close the recycling process.
Our labels are environmentally friendly as they are consciously made of 100% recycled paper, both Blue Angel and ISEGA certified. We use a water-based adhesive so if they get into water - they will be wet. However, they will dry out and stay in place. Try to keep this in mind and avoid water on the labels.
When preparing our products for shipping, we do not use neither bubble wrap nor other plastic materials. The product you receive from us will be packed in a cardboard box with recycled paper and a linen cord. You can also try to reuse our planet’s resources yourself. How? In each package you will find a leaflet with a few recommendations on how to be an eco-conscious consumer ;-)
How do we protect our products (by using organic, friendly and safe preservatives):
In our products you will find either distilled water or plant hydrolates. In this type of products, we need to use preservatives in order to make sure that they are safe for our customers. Our company uses an organic preservative system that is accepted by the ECOCERT organization, which consists of 3 organic acids (dehydroacetic acid, sorbic acid, benzoic acid) and benzyl alcohol.

We work with the Jagiellonian Centre of Innovation in Krakow, in the south of Poland. We create our products ourselves, by hand and without any production line. Our production is based in Krakow, in the south of Poland, in the laboratory at Life Science Park which meets all the necessary conditions for the production of skin care products required by law.
Safety assessment of our products:
All our products have been tested and certified for sale in the area of the European Union. Our company is listed in the European CPNP database (Cosmetic Products Notification Portal).
