Your Questions Answered
Are your facial products suitable for all skin types?
Yes, they are 100% natural
and formulated to be suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.
Whenever you add a new product into your skincare routine we do recommend that you always patch test first before use.
Our Bakuchiol Rejuvenate
Serum includes 1% of a high-potency Bakuchiol extract.
Scientific studies have shown .5% Bakuchiol extract in a formulation is as effective as .5% retinol at
improving hyperpigmentation and fine lines when used daily for 12 weeks, all without the skin irritation common with retinol. Keep in mind bakuchiol won't
be comparable to stronger retinoids such as retinaldehyde or retinoic acid.
Bakuchiol is a gentle
alternative to retinol, but it is a potent botanical active so we recommend patch testing first and building up use if your skin is sensitive. Please message us if you'd like more specific recommendations.
Is your beauty range safe for senstive skin?
All our natural skin care range was developed with sensitive skin in mind.
In fact many of our botanical actives actively reduce inflammation
and skin irritation.
Do you have products suitable for blemish-prone skin?
Yes we do! Our Kawakawa Cleansing Bar with Chlorophyll has had great results as a gentle, balancing cleanser for those suffering with acne due to the anti-bacterial properties of the Kawakawa Chlorophyll extract.
We recommend pairing this
with Bakuchiol Rejuvenate Serum which includes 1% bakuchiol extract known to exhibit anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and balance sebum (oil) production.
One study* found that a formulation with 1% bakuchiol extract applied twice daily reduced acne by 57% after six weeks.

Are your natural skin care products effective?
Absolutely. Nothing but good goes into our natural skin care and all our beauty products are free from nasty chemicals, skin irritants or synthetic fillers.
Are your hair care bars safe for children too?
Absolutely. Our hair care bars are designed with all the family in mind.
How should I store my hair care bars?
When not in use, store your bars away from water - e.g. outside the shower - on a well-draining soap dish to make it last as long as possible. A saucer with pebbles is a nice DIY soap dish idea.
