ABOUT YOU

Why should I make the switch to natural products?

Your skin is extremely permeable. It transpires as well as absorbs what you put on it. Think about how many hours leave-on products like facial creams and make-up stay on the skin. Exposure to small amounts of various toxins everyday accumulate in your body. Studies have shown that a lot of chemicals are toxic even at very low doses. We created our range so you don’t have to worry about nasties creeping into your skincare, as we have a very strict ingredient policy.

How do I know which products are right for me?
If you have a specific query regarding products for your skin type please contact us for advice. We love to share our expertise and help customers with their skin goals! You can learn about your skin type by reading through the product description, ingredients, benefits, skin type information and directions on each product page. We also offer blog posts for helpful tips, and a free skin consultation here.

I have sensitive skin, can I use your products ?

Our range is generally great for all skin types even reactive skin. We don’t use chemicals or synthetic fragrances that commonly cause problems for sensitive skin types. But like foods, some people have individual allergies to specific plants. Test a product by placing a small amount of the product on your arm, covering with a bandaid and leave on overnight. If you find there is no redness, rash or allergic reaction, this is a good sign you won’t react to this product.

We disclose all of our ingredients used on the website, so if you have any known allergies, you can check prior to purchasing.

Are your products suitable for pregnant women?
Our products are toxin-free, nothing like most commercially available store bought skin care products. However, there may be some Essential Oils not recommended for pregnant women to use, based on not enough evidence and a low number of studies that support its safety. Please seek advice from your doctor if you are unsure.

USING OUR PRODUCTS

What is the shelf life of your products?
Once opened, we recommend using our products within 6 months after opening. Store out of heat and direct sunlight. And keep away from water to avoid spoilage. You can refrigerate our products to help extend their shelf life.

Batch variation 

Our products are handcrafted as opposed to mass produced. As our ingredients are organic and natural in origin, there may be seasonal variations which can result in slight changes in colour and consistency between batches.

Why do I have to mix some products myself before use?

It is true that most things good for us, require a bit of effort on our part. Think of healthy eating, exercise, getting enough sleep and positive thinking. A few of our products such as our masks, need to be mixed with water before applying. We also recommend adding a few drops of water in your palm with serum application. By not including water and preservatives in these formulations, ensures the customer receives the maximum amount of high quality ingredients per weight.

What is a some step by step skincare routine?

Cleanse, Tone & Moisturise. Do this twice a day and your on to an effective skincare routine that cleans, nourishes and protects. To address skin concerns, we recommend using treatment products to target at night while you sleep, and use a zinc based sunscreen during the day for sun protection.
