Can I use Toulou Organics products whilst pregnant?
None of our products contain ingredients at levels which should cause concern during pregnancy or while trying to get pregnant. However, most of our products contain essential oils that some women choose to avoid entirely during pregnancy. If you have any concerns at all we advise you to consult your GP or pharmacist and show them the ingredient list before using the product. Our ingredients lists are available on our website.
Do Toulou Organics test on animals?
We do not test our products on animals and our products are not tested on animals, on our behalf by any third party.
The European Commission has implemented a marketing ban on any cosmetic products that have been tested on animals or contain ingredients that were tested on animals after 11th March 2013. This means that any products that are tested on animals after this date or contain ingredients that were tested on animals after this date are now banned from sale in the EU.
Is there any SPF in your moisturisers?
Yes, our moisturisers do not contain a SPF ingredient – zinc oxide, however, we recommend the use of an additional sun protection if you are outside for long periods.
Do Toulou Organics Skincare use preservatives?
Our moisturises have less than 1% of preservative in the product, because by law we have to use a preservative once the product contains water. Our face moisturisers are also packaged in airless pumps to ensures that germs from the air and from your fingers cannot come into contact with the product in the bottle.
Is Toulou Organics Skincare packaging recyclable?
The PET bottles and airless pumps we use are almost entirely recyclable and the glass jars are completely recyclable.
