Why natural?

Is this skincare natural?

Yes, 100%!

How do I know?

We don't hide our ingredients. We encourage you to read them. You'll understand everything.

Why is natural skincare different from regular skincare?

Applying chemicals to your skin can damage the pH level + natural balance of your skin. Up to 70% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your body. These toxins build slowly + silently within over many years.

Which is best a moisturiser or 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 with active ingredients. Face elixirs help to restore your skin's luminosity which is why we call ours Glow!

How does the oil cleanser work?

It's hard to imagine washing your skin without water but that's exactly what oil cleansers are designed to do. Instead of stripping the skin of natural nutrients, oils feed the skin + help to maintain its pH balance.

No need to wash off otherwise you waste all those precious ingredients that could be benefiting your skin. 

Is it best to use the face moisturiser at night or in the morning?

If you apply a face moisturiser to your skin before bed you're likely to lose some on the pillow. The pores of the skin like to breathe at night so going to bed bare faced is best. However if you're a long time fan of night creams then old habits will probably win on your skin!

Do I keep the face moisturiser in the fridge?

Our face moisturisers don't like extreme cold or heat so don't put them in the fridge but do keep them away from heat + direct sun. Our skincare is made fresh so treat it as such. You'll love it so much you'll use it before it's time is up!

Can I use the face moisturiser as an eye cream?

The skin around your eyes is very delicate but so are our moisturisers. With 100% natural ingredients they're perfectly safe for around the eye area. As they're rich in antioxidants + vitamins this will help strengthen delicate skin + reverse the signs of premature ageing, often more noticeable around the eyes.

My skin is already oily + I don't like putting more oil onto it.

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. Oils are the key to moisture, the real hero in skincare.

Foaming + cream cleansers strip your skin of natural oils. When the oil is stripped, your skin over compensates by producing more oil, resulting in oily skin, pimples + other imbalances.
