2) Should I use your Absolute Cleansing Oil if I have oily skin? Will it clog my pores?

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!

3) Does 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.

4) I have really oily skin, if I use the 24 Hour Rosehip Face Serum will it clog my pores?

No because our Active 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 you’re skin is oily you maybe using too much product so try less.

5) How do I apply my Eye Wow! Eye Serum?

Shake the bottle to charge the rollerball. Then from the outer eye, roll Eye Wow towards the inner corner of the eye lids, top and bottom. Allow to absorb or gently pat. The rollerball delivers the gel consistently so there is no need to rub in.

6) When can I apply the Hyaluronic Youth boost?

First ensure your face is fully clean and free from any makeup. We recommend our Absolute Cleansing Oil for initial cleansing, then:

Apply a pea size amount of the Youth Boost to the back of your hand.

Apply the Hyaluronic Youth Boost onto the areas where you want to see results, usually around the mouth and brow area.

Leave it dry in for about 1 minute (before you teeth after application and it’ll be dry for next steps after you've finished!)

Follow up with our 24hr Rosehip Face Serum and our Active Rosehip Day Cream for nourished, plump and protected skin

Repeat daily

7) Can I use your products during pregnancy?

Yes, you can use Kinvara Skincare products during pregnancy. At Kinvara all our key ingredients are food grade, all are Eco Cert approved, plant oils are organic and we adopt a conservative approach to product development such that any dubious ingredients are left out.

 Your skin absorbs 60% of whats applied to it so we want to make that 60% as safe and natural as possible. As a result our products have been multiple winners of the UK Free From Skincare Awards amongst other industry and public awards.

We encourage all customers of all skincare products to patch test first to make sure your new products suit you – we are all different and we can't give a guarantee that every product will suit everyone. Rest assured we sell many products to lots of very happy customers.

Concerns with regard to the use of essential oils or other skincare ingredients during pregnancy should be discussed with your medical care team – we can’t give medical advice. However we can say that our products have been fully passed as safe to use and are fully compliant with stringent EU regulations.

And that's a wrap on our top skincare questions and answers throughout 2020. Do you have any more that didn't make the list? Let us know and get in touch
