Your top skincare questions of 2021: You asked, we answered.

6 minute read

Why not start 2022 knowing everything you want to know about skincare? We thought we would take a trip down this year and look back at some of our top skincare questions received throughout 2021. Skincare is a hot topic and we always want to provide our customers with as much information not only about our products but about our industry as we can.

Keep scrolling, you might have a burning skincare question that just may have been answered below.

1) Do Kinvara Skincare products contain SPF?

SPF is one of our most popular skincare questions recently especially with Spring just around the corner. SPF is a work in progress for Kinvara Skincare and at the moment none of our products contain an SPF.  The reasons are twofold: firstly, it is very difficult to formulate a natural sunscreen  as most standard sunscreens use chemical UV filters like oxybenzone, which can be very irritating to the skin and which would never be used in the clean, beauty Free From formulations that is Kinvara Skincares’ speciality. Secondly, natural UV blockers can often leave a heavy, white ghosting effect on the skin which we don't like. The good news is that there are new natural SPF ingredients in development and we are monitoring their availability as part of our ongoing Research & Development program. In the meantime we recommend using a suitable SPF over our Active Rosehip Day Cream.


2) I have oily skin, can I use your 24hr Rosehip Face Serum?

Yes because skin, regardless of its type, needs to be nourished & fed and this product is great at doing just that, with a super concentrated blend of powerful plant actives. It can help keep normal skin in great condition and can help get tricky skin to look and feel comfortable, calm and hydrated. The first step towards beautiful looking skin. Our 24hr Rosehip Face Serum is a balanced blend of oil and water soluble ingredients as opposed to an oil only formula - its more like a thick gel than an oil.  In addition the 4 oils that we chose for this serum all absorb fast. If you feel that your skin is oily after applying you maybe using too much product so try less.

3) Does Kinvara Skincare have a night cream?

At the moment, our range does not include a specific night moisturiser. But! Despite its name, you can use our Active Rosehip Day Cream both, day and night. It is ideal to help maintain a moisturised skin barrier which is important for skin health and for managing specific skin conditions like acne rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

4) Can I use your Absolute Cleansing Oil if I have oily skin?

Oily skin can be tricky to manage so it's vital to get your cleansing routine right before anything else. There are no comedogenic oils or fats in Kinvara Skincare face care formulations. A comedogenic substance is one that clogs pores. This blockage can lead to whiteheads, blackheads and pimples. More specifically, comedogenicity is the tendency of any ingredient or product to cause or to worsen a build-up of dead cells in follicles (referred to as pores), leading to the development of a comedo (blackhead). 


Our Absolute Cleansing Oil is dermatologically tested and it is suitable for all skin types including oily, sensitive and dry skin. This hot cloth cleanser contains no harsh chemicals, it balances oil production, especially important for Acne/Oily prone skin while nourishing and hydrating the skin thanks to its blend of skin loving plants. A key ingredient in our blend is watermelon (kalahari) seed oil which is light and sinks into your skin very quickly. It's a non-comedogenic oil so leaves no greasy residue and does not contribute to the blocking of pores. It will easily remove make-up, even stubborn mascara effortlessly!

5) How do I layer all my Kinvara Skincare products?


As a rule of thumb, your skincare products are best applied from thinner/lightest to thicker/heaviest; following this simple rule, this is how your Kinvara Skincare products should be applied for better results.


1- Absolute Cleansing Oil

2- Eye Wow! Eye Serum

3- Hyaluronic Youth Boost

4- 24hr Rosehip Face Serum

5- Active Rosehip Day Cream

6- Precious Facial Oil

7- Omega Rich Hand & Nail Cream


6) What do you recommend for mature skin?

Your skin can get drier and thinner as it ages, losing some elasticity and lustre along the way.  A consistent skincare routine with products that contain gentle, plant extracts is important to help manage ageing skin. Adding moisture and hydration is imperative especially around the eye area. Specific areas can be targeted with products designed to help improve signs of ageing such as our Eye Wow! Eye serum and Hyaluronic Youth Boost.


If you are looking for a product for mature skin / anti-ageing we recommend using our 24Hr Rosehip Face Serum,

Our 24hr Rosehip Face Serum can be used all over your face and neck, both morning and evening. It is designed to provide hydration and moisturisation to even the most demanding skin.

Our Eye WOW! Eye Serum is a powerful blend of 12 plant extracts to target dark circles, fine lines, puffiness, hydration and comfort, and can be used morning and night. 

Our Hyaluronic Youth Boost is ideal to help target signs of ageing, specially at the mouth and brow areas. Dry, oily, combination and tricky skin can all benefit from Hyaluronic Acid's natural plumping properties, coupled with turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties delivered in an antioxidant rich light gel of Vitamin E, cucumber and rosemary. 

Our Active Rosehip Day Cream contains Hyaluronic Acid to help retain moisture at the surface of your skin, it absorbs very quickly and leaves a great base for make-up products, if you're using them.  if you would like to read more about it.

Hyaluronic Youth Boost contains Hyaluronic acid and extract of Turmeric in a light gel which you apply to help give a fuller effect to specific areas.

Our Precious Facial Oil is recommended for all skin types but can be especially useful for those who can't use retinol due to sensitive skin. It should be used in your routine if you want clearer, firmer, calmer looking skin. 

7) Can teenagers use Kinvara Skincare? What do you recommend for teenage skin?

Of course! It's important to develop a good routine as a teenager so that we have great skin habits as we get older. Because teenage skin can be prone to hormonal breakouts, blocked pores and inflammation then using a gentle cleanser, like our Absolute Cleansing Oil will give a great basis for clean skin. Paired with our 24hr Rosehip Face Serum, which has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce any redness and inflammation, will make an ideal and minimal routine for your teenager. 


And that's a wrap on our top skincare questions and answers throughout 2021. Do you have any more that didn't make the list? Let us know and get in touch
