Here we answer some of your frequently asked questions:

HOW DO I USE THESE PRODUCTS?

We recommend the following simple routine:

  • Cleanse - apply Clarity to a reusable or organic cotton pad + remove your eye make up first (if you wear it) then refresh the pad + cleanse the rest of your face with light, upward strokes until the pad comes clean.
  • Hydrate/Spritz - your face + mood will love Sanctia's instant refresh. It also helps to lock in added moisture before you apply an elixir or cream.
  • Moisturise - apply either Botanique Face Moisturiser or 6 Scents Face Elixir depending on your skin type + preference (see below).
  • Eye Creme - gently dab Fragile Eye Creme around the eye area.

WHAT IS AN ELIXIR?

Elixirs contain a high dosage of valuable nutrients: vitamins + skin fortifying botanical ingredients which are the building blocks for collagen + elastin repair. They deliver to the deeper levels of the dermis, multi-tasking + restoring the skin's luminosity + natural vibrancy with active ingredients.

DO I CHOOSE A FACE ELIXIR OR MOISTURISER?

Both of these products are moisturisers. The elixir is made of oils only whereas Botanique is a combination of floral waters + oils. Both also contain pure essential oils + native botanicals. Ideally you can alternate between the two. When your skin is feeling particularly dry choose the elixir.

WHY CLEANSE WITH OIL?

It's hard to imagine washing your face without water but that's exactly what oil cleansers are designed to do. Instead of stripping the skin of nutrients (like foaming or cream cleansers do) Clarity Face Cleanser nourishes the skin as it purifies.

WHAT IF MY SKIN'S ALREADY OILY?

The skin is a wonderful thing. If you use an oily moisturiser your skin will naturally stop producing so much oil because it knows there's now enough.

When the oil is stripped by chemical skincare or foaming or cream cleansers, your skin over compensates by producing more oil, resulting in oily skin + other imbalances such as pH level disruption. Yet another reason to go natural!

DO I KEEP THE MOISTURISER IN THE FRIDGE?

Our moisturisers don't like extreme cold or heat so don't put Botanique or Fragile in the fridge but do keep them away from heat + sunlight. 

Remember to use light, upward strokes when applying product to your face. You can also give your skin a massage to help keep the blood circulating. Use this time to appreciate your skin + send it some love!
