Frequently Asked Questions
The formulation contains certified organic ingredients which are denoted on the back of the ingredients list.
Macadamia nut oil is a light golden oil which does not provide colour to our products. The emulsifiers in the formula which hold the formula (water & oil components) together are white in colour and they cause the whiteness of the formula. The Tasmanian kelp is an extract created from dehydrated powder – it is a clear green colour but not bright like Matcha green tea. It is at a level that won’t turn the product green for aesthetics.
Yes all current 4 products have natural preservatives, extracts with a combination of vitamins.
There is no base creams used in range. Each formula is uniquely created using different emulsifiers, oil, waxes and butters to form a cream suited for the desired purpose.

Depends on the type of allergy. As the macadamia is a tree nut (actually is more of a seed than a nut) it does not mean someone with a peanut allergy will have a reaction. Most people will know if they are allergic to macadamias. Reactions on the skin can be different to those that are ingested. If a person is concerned and not sure if they are allergic they are best to do a patch test with a tester, behind the ear. Macadamia oil is similar to skins natural sebum so that it why it is used.
