Frequently Asked Questions
You sure can! Our products are great for layering. Because of our proprietary Good Silicon+® technology, our formulations absorb effortlessly into the skin allowing you to layer products into your routine.
Of course. All our formulations were created with unisex skin care needs in mind. Thanks to the Good Silicon+® technology, all products absorb quickly, avoiding shiny residual on the skin. Most of our products have a neutral, 'medical' smell. Only the 004-Br Skin Brightening Cream has a distinct odour, due to Glutathione being one of its key ingredients.
If you have diagnosed eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or any other medical skin condition, you should consult your dermatologist before using any new products on a regular basis.
Our current product range does not contain SPF, but we’re currently developing products that will include SPF. For additional product announcements in the future, sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
No, we consider the testing of cosmetic products on animals cruel and pointless. Our products are tested on human volunteers by AMA Laboratories Inc. (New York), a third-party FDA-approved research organization which specializes in skin care studies.
While our products aren’t organic, we do focus on safe and ethically sourced ingredients.
Very few cosmetic ingredients are sourced from animals and most of our products are vegan. However, the 003-Hy Hydrating Face Cream and 003-Hy Hydrating Facial are not suitable for vegans. They contain Omega-3 fatty acids from sustainable European fish and shellfish sources because plants don't provide DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). These Omega-3s are much more effective than the ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) Omega-3 provided by plants.
Many of our products are free of nuts or nut oils. However, we cannot guarantee our products were made in a nut-free facility. We encourage our customers who have allergies to consult a doctor before using any product.
