I've given you guys the wrong address. Can I change it?
It may, unfortunately, delay delivery by a day or two. But talk to us and we'll sort it out chop chop.
I'd like to buy gifts for my family and friends. Can you ship to another address or multiple addresses?
Yes, of course. Just let us know which products are going to who when you place your order. Please note though that each address we ship to will incur a shipping cost as they are separate shipments and our couriers bill that way.
I don't know what to buy for someone I love. Do you have vouchers?
Absolutely. We offer vouchers in any denomination, so you can decide how much, or how little to spend on your loved ones. We recommend R50 and upwards.
To order a voucher, let us know your name, the name of the recipient, their email or postal address, depending on how you’d like to give it to them (we prefer email, to save trees) and the amount you’d like to give. Our vouchers don’t expire, have no limitations, and can be supplemented if they’d like to buy more than you’ve specified.
I heard that you can customise a product to suit my skin?
Yes, we do. For example, a lot of customers love the Happily Ever After Anti-Ageing Serum but come month end, they need a bit of Banish & Repair to keep breakouts in check. Instead of purchasing both, we can combine the two for you. This obviously saves you the cost of purchasing a second product, gives you fantastic overall results and our karma is a little better :] So chat with us!
Can you substitute an ingredient if I'm allergic to it?
Let us know what you’re allergic to and we’ll see what we can do. Obviously, if, for example, honey brings you up in hives (chuckle chuckle) we can’t really take it out of a Honey & Oatmeal scrub, but there are occasions where we’ll be able to help you with this, or at the very least, suggest another product in our range that will give you the results you’re looking for.
We use choice ingredients in all our products – natural, organic and vegan whenever possible. Our products contain oils (some may contain nut oils) and essential oils. Please check that you are not allergic or skin sensitive to any of the ingredients. If you experience any sensitivity or redness, discontinue use immediately.
Our products are free from any harmful synthetics.
Keeping your products effective for longer:
Please keep your products dry and out of direct sunlight. Avoid exposing them to water. Scoop product out of the jar/tub with a clean dry spoon/spatula. If you notice any change of colour, smell or texture of your product discard immediately.
Our products are preserved by using essential oils, honey (in honey-based products), Melaleuca oil (Tea-tree) scorbic acid (potassium sorbate). We do not use parabens, phthalates, triclosan, formaldehyde, toluene, SLS or any harmful synthetics.
We are very knowledgeable about of products, their ingredients (and quite a few other things too), but we are not doctors. If in doubt, please consult your doctor if you have any concerns to be on the safe side.
Do you introduce new products often?
All the time. Right now there are three products being tested and three more waiting to be released. We like choices, and since our skin changes with the weather, we work ahead to make sure our seasonal range is ready ahead of schedule. However, you’ll be able to pick up your favourite Strawberry & Black Pepper scrub, even in winter, because who wouldn’t want a bit of sunshine when it’s rainy outside?
What do the symbols on the packaging mean?
Organic and Vegetarian, We are not organically certified but we do stand by the provenance and quality of ingredients which is evident by the efficacy of our products.
Are all your products vegan-friendly?
With the exception of our honey-based products, yes.
What's your stance on animal testing?
We are proud to say we are BEAUTY WITHOUT CRUELTY accredited :) We have a load of friends who've volunteered to test our products out, and a load of testers, who’ve loved our products and become friends. Sustainability is also a biggie with us. We won't use ingredients that are not sustainably sourced or those that impact the environment and the people and animals we share our planet with.
I love our planet. Do you try to reduce your carbon footprint?
Yes we do. We only use PET (recycled plastic containers) and recycled packaging and our labels are printed on recycled paper.
You are welcome to return your clean empty jars to us where they will be autoclaved and reused. We donate R1 to CleanC, an incredible non-profit organisation who use donations towards employment, educations and environmental initiatives. (www.cleanc.co.za)
Drop off points are in our stores in Cape Town, our distribution centre in Diep River and our stores in Durban at present, but we will are arranging points nationwide. To find our more, pop us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Where do you source your ingredients?
We are passionate about the provenance of our ingredients and this means we support local suppliers whenever possible. For example, our honey is from a wildflower bee farm, our cold-pressed oils from a local producer. We organically grow most of our own botanicals that are used in many of our products. Our Shea Butter is from Fair Trade co-ops in Ghana and our coconut oil from Mozambique.
Got any ideas about how I can recycle your containers?
Oh definitely. Turn your plastic jars into mini plant containers, keep your paperclips and staples handy, turn them into tea light holders, turn them into bird feeders by stringing them up in the garden or use them in the kitchen to store spices or lentils.
As mentioned in the paragraph above, we will also shortly be rolling out our recycling initiative where used jars can be returned for re-use.
Do any of your products have an SPF factor?
We can include Non-Nano Zinc Oxide in your moisturiser (at no extra cost) if you wish. Whilst Zinc Oxide is synthetic, it is perfectly safe and offers an effective SPF. It is not absorbed into the skin, but instead, forms a protective layer on the skin to bounce and scatter UVA/B/C rays. We do recommend including it should you choose one of our gorgeous moisturisers and if you would like us to do so, please pop us a note when ordering.
You use natural ingredients. How long can I keep a product before it goes off?
We include potassium sorbate which is a mild preservative used in cosmetic and skincare formulas as a paraben alternative to prevent or retard the growth of microorganisms and protect products from spoiling.
Potassium Sorbate is effective against fungi, mould and yeast but less active against bacteria so is not considered broad spectrum. Whilst we do use it in conjunction with essential oils, we recommend 14 - 16 weeks as a guideline.
Store your products in a cool place, out of direct sunlight and avoid getting them wet.
Keep an eye on them. If you notice any change in texture, colour or smell discard immediately. Rule of thumb, if in doubt, rather not.
In case of irritation, redness, itchiness etc, discontinue use and let us know!
