Good to know

 

VEGAN

Many of our customers are vegan and vegetarian and its important to them to know that we do not use animal ingredients in our products.

 

AGAINST ANIMAL TESTING

Lots of our customers are concerned about animal testing and with a doctorate in animal conservation you can believe me when I say that none of our products are or ever will be tested in animals. I couldn’t imagine hurting an animal and abhor animal testing in all its forms. 

 

 PACKAGING

Where we think it is important for the customer and/or product we provide a dispensing pump. This ensures the customer gets the right amount with minimal wastage and mess.

Where possible we try to give our customers an indication of how much product to use for optimal results and by extension how long a product will last under average usage conditions. This will vary between products and individual preferences.  

 

 RECYCLING

We use glass and polyethylene terephthalate (PET/PETE) plastic in our packaging. All our components and cartons are suitable for recycling and we encourage you to reuse or recycle our packaging where possible. 

 

MADE IN IRELAND

Kinvara skincare is a 100% Irish owned business. Its owned by Drs Joanne Reilly & Ciaran Kelly. Our products are developed by Dr. Reilly with input from consultant chemists and made to our exacting specification in a fully compliant, ISO certified Irish manufacturing plant (powdered products are currently made in an ISO compliant UK facility as there wasn’t the expertise available in Ireland for the innovative formulation and filling requirements).

 

TESTING 

All Kinvara skincare products are fully compliant with EU regulations (EC) No 1223/2009 and registered on the EU’s cosmetic products notification portal.

In addition to all the standard testing required of a cosmetic product Kinvara goes a step further and has all our products Dermatologically tested and approved. 

 

PATCH TEST

Before you start using any product from any brand its recommended that you ensure it suits your skin by conducting a simple patch test, by putting a dab of product in the crook of your elbow of behind your ears and waiting to see if any redness or irritation arises within 24-48 hours. If it does then don’t purchase or if you already have then cease using the product in question.

 

SHELF LIFE & PERIOD AFTER OPENING 

Our products are best used within either 6 or 12 months from the date of opening, this is indicated by a 6M or 12M inside a jar symbol as indicated on our cartons and our labels.

 

STORAGE

Store our products in cool, dark conditions and away from sunlight.
