We are now using mostly cold-pressed and raw pant oils for maximum nutrients! Subsequently the smell and colour of your oils may have changed a bit. Not in a bad way, on the contrary, we think they've brought so much more life and depth to our blends.
Are you a sustainable brand?
Yes absolutely. Read more about our initiatives here.
Why use oils?
But I have oily skin...
In fact, keeping the oil production of our skin balanced and PH levels steady is essential for facial skin health.
Oils supply your skin the moisture and nutrients it craves, so it stops over-producing sebum in the effort to moisturise itself. Sebum in over-supply is how you get 'greasiness'.
How long do the facial oils last?
If you're doing 3-4 drops per day then you should finish the bottle in 3 months. To prevent rancidity, keep your oil closed between uses and keep out of direct sunlight and at room temperature or below (some people like to refrigerate their face oil for an extra fresh hit!)
Why do you have citrus oils, aren't they photo-senstising?
Are they fragranced?
Only naturally! There is no 'parfum' in the blends. Parfum or fragrance in mainstream skincare is generally what makes sensitive skin irritated. We take pride in our layered essential oil blends, giving each oil not only a distinctive scent, but more importantly a mix of active aromatherapy benefits for the body and the mind.
This scent lasts about 20 minutes, as it starts to evaporate on contact with the heat of the skin. Just enough time to get into your head but not conflict with your perfume. The essential oils generally only make up 1% of the blend, and all are well within IFRA standards. Citrus oils used are not photo-sensitising when used in these small amounts.
Can I use your products when pregnant and breast feeding? I've heard essential oils are a no-go when pregnant.
The answer to this is a personal choice, and really depends on your views towards essential oils and pregnancy. There are different views and not much hard research!
Do your products contain nuts or gluten?
Yes, there are some tree-nut and wheat oils in our blends. Because of the processing that extracted nut and wheat oils go through, they typically do not irritate people with allergies. However, please read the ingredients through and consult your doctor first if you have a strong allergy.
