- When Do You Ship?
Currently, Tuesdays & Thursdays.
Paying by eCheck (via PayPal)
- It usually takes about 3-5 days for me to receive your payment. Once payment is received I will ship the items via priority service. Priority shipping takes 3-5 days. A confirmation and tracking number will be sent thereafter.
- How Do I Discard Of Your Products/Packaging?
You can compost your packing peanuts or kraft crinkle cut. The packing peanuts are made from sorghum starch (all natural) that you can use as fertilizer. I also use a vegetable tape that’s renewable and biodegradable. Also, packaging comes in a kraft box. Most of it can be recycled (excluding the plastic jars).
- Can I Use Your Soaps On My Face?
Yes. However make sure to tone and moisturize skin. Those last two steps are important. The ph of each bar is alkaline so moisturizing deeply is important.
- Do I have to wear sunscreen with your products?
Yes. An spf between 35 and 50 is great!
- Will I break out?
There is no guarantee that you will not break out. It is important to test on a small area on your skin before full use. This is your responsibility to test it for 24-48 hours. You may also notice purging of oils and possible breakouts because of the healing process.
You suggest a sunscreen to use. What do you recommend?
Currently, I love the Unsun Cosmetics and Black Girl Sunscreen They are skin friendly. Find one that is natural and works well with your skin type.
- Will your products for acne help with my pitted scars?
They will not help entirely with pitted scars. See your dermatologist and or esthetician as they are knowledgeable on filling, and/or using lasers etc. to correct this.
- How long do your soaps last?
Each soap is natural. This means that depending on the ingredients each bar melts at different rates. For example, a soap with a hard butter such as cocoa butter may melt slower than one with shea or mango butter. This also depends on how many people are using a bar. For one person 3-4 weeks approx
- Your Soap Does Not Feel Like A Regular Soap, Why?
Only High-Quality Oils Are In Every Soap. Depending on which soap it is, you may experience a slick, smooth, hard or soft consistency depending on the oils used in the soaping process.
- I Think I Have An Allergic Reaction, Possibly To Your Product. What Should I Do?
