Q: What's so special about your products?
A: Because Yoda approves, AND...because we chose the most gentle, natural, and effective ingredients for truly soft skin:
100% Unrefined Organic Raw Ivory Shea Butter: According to the American Shea Butter Institute, "100% natural shea butter is an all natural Vitamin A cream and supeb moisturizer with exceptional healing properties for the skin." Our customers loves how it reduces the appearance of: stretch marks, cellulite, wrinkles, sunburn, eczema, and overall dry skin.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: Coconut oil provides moisture for the skin without clogging your pores as petroleum based products do. Our customers adore the glistening effect of the oil, as it leaves a non-greasy sheen on their skin.
Kosher Vegetable Glycerin: Vegetable glycerin is what helps make our products so luxurious. Derived directly from plant oils and most effective when combined with other emollients (such as shea butter and coconut oil), vegetable glycerin acts as a humectant, sealing in moisture to create a barrier against water loss on the skin.
Vitamin E Oil: Acting as a super protectant and healer, Vitamin E oil has been known to boost collagen production, serve as an anti-inflammatory, and support new skin cell growth. Our customers, especially those with sensitive skin, love the calming effects of this ingredient.
Organic Raw Honey: An antibacterial and antioxidant, raw organic honey is pro-clarifying, soothing and healing in the most natural way possible. And it smells pretty sweet too!
Organic Essential Lavender Oil: This sensuous oil is a major skin and soul soother. Considered one of the most versatile oils, it heals, calms, protects, and energizes.
Organic Raw Sugar: A natural source of glycolic acid, raw sugar breaks down dead skin and boosts new skin cell production. Plain and simple, it's one of the best natural exfoliants to use on your skin.
Q: Do your products contain parabens, preservatives, or sulfates?
A: No. We use exactly what you see in the list above. Since those ingredients are 100% natural and not water based, we suggest you use them in a timely manner.
Q: I really love your products. How can I spread the love?
A: Aw shucks, thanks. We love that you love our products! Go on with your gorgeous self and post those selfies with your BE products on Twitter: #beskincare8 or Instagram: @beskincare8. Or pin one of our products on the "Shop" page.
Q: Do you sell Be Skincare products in stores?
A: Keep spreading the BE love and stay tuned...
Q: I really like the jars and tins your products come in. Any suggestion about what to do with them when they’re empty?
A: BE eco-friendly. We are big fans of repurposing, and we do our very best to package and ship our products using eco-friendly materials. Some of our customers wash and reuse the jars and/or tins for everything from catching fireflies to storing buttons. At the very least, we suggest putting the jars and/or tins in your recycle bin. While you’re at it, please repurpose or recycle the box and packaging materials.
Q: The body butter arrived and appears thick; should I do anything to it?
A: No. Because we do not water down our products, they may appear thick. We take our very special and effective ingredients and whip them for 2 hours--quite a workout--so that they are light in texture, but luxurious on your skin.
The butter will naturally soften as you apply it to your skin. Please DO NOT HEAT your jar/tin or leave it in direct sunlight.
Q: What parts of my body should I avoid with the sugar scrub and body butter?
A: We know our products smell and feel delicious, but please don’t eat them, put them in your eyes, or apply them to any other private orifice for that matter.
Our sensitive skin customers love our products, but some areas of your skin are more delicate than others. You’re the best judge of what works where. And if you're still not sure, consult your physician or oracle.
Q: Is shea butter okay for people with nut allergies?
A: According to research from the Food Allegery Research and Resource Program at the University of Nebraaska, "shea nut butter does not contain any detectable protein residues and does not contain detectable residues of proteins from peanut or various known allergenic tree nuts (walnut, almond, pecan, hazelnut). Since allergens are proteins, this research indicates the absence of detectable allergens in shea nut butter." Again, if you have any concerns about shea butter, please consult your doctor.
Q: Do you test on animals?
A: NO. NEVER. How could we with faces like these?
Even though our products are 100% natural, we don't suggest applying them to your fur babies. We're currently working on a special formula for dogs.
Q: What if I am unhappy with your products?
A: Say it ain’t so! We truly want you to BE happy. But if you're not happy with any of our products or services, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do our best to make you happy and can offer partial refunds on opened products.
