Does anyone else see the information that I provide to SKOON.?
We respect your privacy. The information you provide will not be given to any third party. Please refer to our https://www.skoonskin.com/policies/privacy-policy.
Do your products have expiration dates?
All SKOON. products have a shelf life of two years (one year after opening).
All skincare products have a PAO, or period-after-opening, date that is printed on the packaging. This information is a guideline to get the most out of your products and use them at their peak efficacy. If you turn your SKOON. bottles to the side, you will see a little open can with a number inside. This refers to the number of months in which we recommend using the product.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Most of our products are recyclable. If you don’t see the recycling info for your product, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are your products safe for all ages?
Yes, but of course use common sense. We recommend patch testing before first usage. Our Beauty Smoothies, as a general rule, are not recommended if you are pregnant/breastfeeding or under the age of 16 years.
Do you test your products on animals?
No, we do not test our products on animals.
Are your products all-natural/organic?
While SKOON. aims for its products to be as natural as possible, it is far more important that the ingredients in them be effective and safe for your body and skin. Natural ingredients can be irritating, so we consistently formulate our products with soothing, low-hazard ingredients—regardless of their natural or synthetic status.
Why do you use synthetics in your products?
Over time, we have found that a small number of low-hazard synthetic ingredients are essential to maintain the efficiency, colour, and stability of a high-performance line. We strive to be as safe as possible while providing the most efficacious skincare available.
Are SKOON. products vegan and gluten-free?
As none of our products are produced in dedicated gluten-free facilities, we do not make this claim in association with our products. If you have a gluten intolerance or allergy, your physician needs to be the final word on whether our products are suitable for your sensitivities. We recommend taking the ingredient lists for any SKOON. products you're considering to them for review, just to be safe.
If you are vegan, please consult the ingredient lists for animal-derived ingredients.
Are your products noncomedogenic?
All of our products have undergone clinical trials, and none of the people in the trials have ever experienced irritation or breakouts when using only SKOON. products.
Does SKOON. use parabens?
No. We do not use parabens.
Is it safe to use your products while I'm pregnant or nursing?
Our entire product line is safe for pregnant or nursing women to use, with the exception of Retinin and Beauty Smoothies. However, always check with your doctor before using any new products while pregnant or nursing.
Is it normal to feel tingling when using the SKOON. Serums?
Yes, most definitely. When it comes to using a new product or ingredient (especially those that contain acids, like l-ascorbic and glycolic acid), start slowly and let your skin adjust. We use high concentrations in our products to ensure effectiveness, so a little tingling is not a bad thing!
Are there any storage requirements for my products?
We recommend that you store products at room temperature, away from direct sunlight in a cool and dry environment. Avoid storing your products in extreme hot or cold temperatures. While temperature does not directly impact product efficacy, it may impact the texture (your formulations might become slightly runnier in excess heat, and thicker in excess cold; we like our creams and serums to apply smooth-as-silk!)
The above recommendations are valid for all our products, except our eye serum – this one can be left in the freezer for 2-3 minutes before use. Thanks to its metal ball roller, the extra step will help soothe, chill and de-puff your under-eye area!
What happens if a child consumes cosmetics?
SKOON. topical products are made for external use only. Parents should contact their local poison control for advice immediately if a child ingests cosmetic or personal care products.
First… don’t panic. Most personal care and cosmetic products are classified as “minimally toxic.” It may cause irritation to the skin and eyes and, if ingested, it is likely to cause an upset stomach, diarrhoea, or a bout of vomiting.
It all depends on how much a child consumes and what ingredients are in the product.
If a child consumes cosmetics or personal care products and is not showing symptoms, guidelines from Poison Control suggest giving them a drink of water and keep an eye on them. However, if a child is feeling sick or having symptoms that make it difficult to swallow, you should seek medical help as soon as possible.
Still have questions?
If you are having site issues, or have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com.
Do you offer wholesale pricing or professional discounts?
No, at this time, we are not opening any wholesale accounts for the foreseeable future, as we are focused on our key retail partnerships. We also handle all our distribution internally and do not have any independent third-party distributors that wholesale our products. Thank you for considering our products for your business.
