Freqently Asked Questions

All of our products contain natural and naturally derived ingredients sourced only from the finest companies in Australia and Overseas.  Whilst our products are not considered “certified organic” the active ingredients, of which make up over 98.5%, and contain 100% pure practitioner quality grade oils and organically grown materials.

I have very sensitive skin, will I be able to use the RENEW ME® Natural Skin Care Range?

The RENEW ME® Natural Skin Care is a very gentle skincare range suitable for ALL skin types including sensitive skin.  Note if you are already have a skin irritation, refrain from using our product until it clears.  In the unlikely event that an irritation does occur, please discontinue use of the product.

I am pregnant or breast feeding.  Are your products safe to use during this time?

***Always consult your Doctor before applying ANYTHING to your skin if you are pregnant or breast feeding and if you are unsure of any of the ingredients on any product you may wish to use***

The oils that must be avoided during pregnancy follow:

Angelica, Aniseed, Basil, Camphor, Cedarwood, Cinnamon, Clary-sage, Clove, Fennel, Juniper, Lemongrass, Lovage, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Origanum, Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Spanish Marjoram, Sweet Marjoram, Tarragon, Thyme.

You can still use these herbs and spices mentioned above in cooking, however, they must be avoided as an essential oil as in this form they are more stronger and concentrated.

None of the RENEW ME® Natural Skin Care range contain any of the above essential oils.  If however you feel that after reading the ingredients on our labels please make your own mind up whether to use our products.

Does your Day Cream contain a SPF?

No!  We do not use any form of chemical SPF in our RENEW ME® Day Cream.

Does the RENEW ME® Skin Care Range contain preservatives?

Yes!  We use preservatives in our products.  To have control over the stability of microbial growth cosmetic products, whether Certified Organic or Natural products need to contain a fungal inhibitor.  If preservatives are not used there is nothing to prevent the product from growing potentially pathogenic organisms which are far more dangerous than the preservative itself.  Also, the shelf life is virtually weeks rather than months.

There is a plethora of information on the web regarding preservatives used in skincare products.  When researching this subject, you will find literally thousands of pages informing you what is right and what is wrong which all conflict the other and it can become very confusing.

The most important thing to keep in mind is that ALL skin care products must be safe to use.  Our product contains the minimum amount needed that is approved by ECOCERT, the world wide governing body on  organic certification.  Our preservative is derived from corn (gluconolactone) and  salt (food grade sodium benzoate found in Cherry Bark and Raspberries) and is called Geoguard Ultra.

Geoguard Ultra is a broad spectrum preservative in that it contains no parabens or formaldehyde releasers. It relies on a minute amount of Sodium Benzoate, an organic acid as the active preservative mixed with Gluconolactone. The rate contained per product is 0.0000165%.  If you do the math yourself, you will find it is 1 billionth of a part per product.

Glyceryl Caprylate is a naturally derived alcohol from coconut that acts as a natural emulsifier and preservative.  Glyceryl Caprylate is esterified with vegetable fatty acids and fruit acids for used in certified organic skincare.  Our formulations containing Glyceryl Caprylate have a rate of 0.4% which is present in products under half a percent per product.

When used at these minute levels they are neither hazardous or dangerous to use.

Before using our products we recommend that you do your own research and decide whether our products are right for you.

Are Facial Exercises safe for Sensitive Skin?

Yes!  Facial Exercises are safe for all skin types. Performing the exercises in the correct manner will result in dramatically reducing wrinkles and gives an overall even toned skin.  Facial exercises and microcurrent therapy are the ONLY way to obtain this result.  A surgical facelift will not offer an even tone, and over time will begin to drop and could cause worse wrinkles as a result of the surgical face lift.

Does your RENEW ME® Makeup Range contain Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide?

Yes it does! As does 99.9% of mineral makeup ranges on the market.

Titanium Dioxide
The particle size of this Titanium Dioxide ranges from 1.2 to 1.7 microns; however the average particle size is about 1.5 microns (this is 1500 nanometres).
If you would like any further information on nanotechnology or any of the most recent scientific studies just ask us!
Zinc Oxide
This is a standard Zinc Oxide with a median particle size of approx. .31 microns (this is 310 nanometres), with all particles between 0.25 microns and 0.35 microns. As a result, the  Zinc Oxide used by our manufacturer is nearly invisible when applied to the skin yet still offers both broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection!

Is your RENEW ME® Makeup Range Nano-particle Free?

The term nanoparticle is used to refer to a small particle with all three dimensions less than 100 nanometres. The ingredients that are in question in relation to Powdered Mineral Foundations are Kaolin Clays, Titanium Dioxides, Zinc Oxides and Micas; we choose larger particle sizes in all of these ingredients!
