The art of charades:
from nature to active ingredients
Discover with us the secrets of biomimicry
From nature to human inventions, a long story of inspiration
Playing charades improves our skills on how to imitate someone or something for a night of fun and entertainment with family and friends. The imitation process is not only appearing in board games but there is a great history of human inventions inspired or based by nature.
"Biomimicry is a practice that learns from and mimics the strategies found in nature to solve human design challenges – and find hope." (www.biomimicry.org).
Since we are in the game mode, here a little entertainment for you, check the following human inventions and try to guess which type of natural element they are miming.
For the solution just put your cursor over the pictures:
Discover how we use biomimicry to create our RAHN-Cosmetic Actives
As scientists, we first look at the biology of the skin to determine the problems and the condition of the skin. We do not jump to conclusions, but investigate the various possible solutions to the problem. This is exactly where we start to use nature as a source of inspiration, because in nature there is a solution for everything.
It is about finding the right one and then applying it in the best possible way to solve the problem. You don't have to reinvent the wheel. So there are different ways we can use biomimicry:
From a concept perspective
it means that we apply to the skin's problem the same concept the plant uses to avoid a specific condition
From a mechanism of action perspective
it means that we apply to the skin the same compounds used by the plant to solve a specific problem
From the living ecosystem perspective
it means that we use the same plants, which have a specific role in a certain ecosystem, to reproduce the same on the skins
