What does biobased mean ?

If Biosourced contains the word bio, it does not necessarily mean that the material is organically produced. It means that it is made from renewable resources. In this Oriculi, the biosourced material chosen is castor oil. This plant grows back every year without difficulty. The castor oil used in the design of our Oriculi is a traditional plant that grows in India on semi-arid soils with low water requirements. It is grown in a sustainable way in India. Indeed, the supplier of our raw material is committed to a sustainable castor seed cultivation programme aimed at supporting more than 2700 farmers. 

Why a 100% biobased bioplastic ?

Initially, we wanted to find a bioplastic that was 100% biosourced and biodegradable. It should be noted that bioplastics are relatively new materials and are still being developed by many suppliers. The materials tested that met both criteria (100% biobased AND biodegradable) did not meet our technical requirements. Moreover, the biodegradability tests are often carried out on very thin sections of nearly 0.1mm. They do not guarantee the biodegradability of larger objects like our Oriculi.

We have therefore decided to use a 100% biosourced and sustainable bioplastic, in order to offer you a safe object to keep for life! In case of premature end of life (unfortunate breakage), we have chosen to turn to the circular economy, meaning that the material used will be recycled and revalued! No waste !

Is it 100% French made ?

Our Oriculi is entirely made in France. Our bioplastic is made from 100% castor oil, which is grown in a sustainable way in India and the seed is processed in France. It then arrives at our plastics manufacturer, 250 km from our headquarters. The latter, with whom we worked on the 3D shape, made the injection mould on its own premises. This type of tooling represents an investment of around 30,000€, a cost 20% higher than tooling made in China. This choice has a cost but it is important to us, as much to minimize our carbon footprint as to maintain French know-how. 

Advice for use

Use the small spoon of our Oriculi to remove the earwax visible at the entrance of the ear only. No need to go any further, earwax is an asset as it protects the eardrum, so you might as well keep it as long as it is not unsightly.

In addition, unlike cotton swabs, the Oriculi prevents earwax from forming a blockage. Rinse your Oriculi after use with clean or soapy water if necessary, and dry it with the corner of your towel.

Does it work on children ?

You can use the Oriculi to clean children's ears, but it must be handled by an adult in a calm environment. Use the comfort sphere to wedge your fingers in order to create a stop that will prevent the instrument from reaching the eardrum in case of sudden movement of the child.

The risks of using cotton buds

The cotton swab pushes back towards the depth of the auditory canal the earwax which is usually evacuated in a natural way towards the exit (by the simple movements of your jaw: when you yawn, when you chew...). There is then a risk of earwax blockage. Fungi, bacteria and viruses from the outer ear are also pushed into the ear and can cause infections, which are extremely painful. It is also blamed for eczema in the canal as a result of repeated rubbing on the skin. It is also important to mention the risk of trauma to the eardrum if penetration is too deep.

All these reasons should convince you to switch to the Oriculi.

Did you know ?

The biodiversity law adopted on 20 July 2016 bans plastic cotton buds. It is applicable since 1 January 2020. It's time to switch to the Oriculi !

Logo de la marque Lamazuna

Since its inception, Lamazuna has been a green cosmetics brand. The story begins in 2010 with a click of the founder, Laëtitia Van de Walle, which will be a precursor and founder for the brand. At that time, Laëtitia decided to replace her classic cotton pads with washable microfibre make-up remover wipes. From 5 disposable make-up removal pads per day, she went to zero and thus began to reduce her impact on the environment. And she didn't stop there...

As the years went by, the new Lamazuna eco-friendly product ranges continued to develop. The menstrual cup, the Oriculi, toothbrushes with refillable heads, not forgetting of course all the solid zero waste cosmetics ! Lamazuna's goal since the beginning is to offer green and zero waste beauty products for an ever more committed beauty !

In order to respect their values, they have imposed constraints on the manufacture of their products. They must all be :
- With a zero waste objective
- Vegan
