FAQS for products

Are your products tested on animals? No, we only test on humans :) And all of them are willing to try the products!

Are your products suitable for vegans and vegetarians? The majority of our products are suitable for vegans and veggies. However, we do use beeswax in our Petitgrain and Bergamot Body Balm.

Are your products suitable for sensitive skin? We do use essential oils in our products, some of which can irritate sensitive skin. We would recommend that the customer checks the label for any specific ingredients, and if they are still unsure, doing a patch test on a small area of your skin before using product properly. If it causes any redness, soreness, or discomfort, stop using the product immediately.

Are your products safe to use during pregnancy? Can your products be used during pregnancy? All the essential oils that we use in our products are suitable for expectant and nursing mothers. However, we do suggest you use with caution and stop using if you have any adverse reactions. Please do not use on the babies!

I have a nut allergy. Are your products safe to use? Yes, all of our products are suitable for nut allergy sufferers, as one of us is one. (It wouldn’t be fair if they couldn’t use our products, would it?!)

How long will your skincare products last? A majority of our products have a shelf life of 12 months. However, this may change from product to product depending on the changes to ingredients so please always check labels for information.

What kind of wax are the candles made from? All of our candles are made with 100% soy wax.
