What is your skincare made from?
Our skincare range is 100% vegan, paraben free, sulphate free and cruelty free.
Our formulas are free of artificial colors and fragrances, mineral oil, lanolin, S.D. alcohol, parabens and microplastics.
Are your products made from natural/organic ingredients?
Some of our ingredients are organic certified. On the back labels you will see an * on every certified organic ingredient.
99.5% of our ingredients are natural. This inexpressible amount of not natural ingredients is necessary as they are conditioning elements.
What country is your skincare made?
Our skincare range is made in Australia, leaders of professional high quality formulations.
What is the shelf life of your products?
We use either no preservatives or natural preservatives in the majority of our products. Once opened this ranges from 6-12 months depending on the product.
Our products have a PAO (Period After Opening) symbol on the packaging which gives you an idea of how long after opening the product can be safely used without causing harm.
The PAO symbol looks like an open cosmetic cream jar with a number on it, followed by the letter ‘M’, which refers to ‘month’. “So for example, a PAO symbol showing ‘6M’ suggests that the product is safe to use for 6 months after it has been opened.
How do I store Skincare?
Keep products in a cool place away from direct heat & light exposure. This is especially important with our serums as oxidation may occur.
Please read directions carefully as certain products will need to be stored accordingly.
What products do I choose?
Our products indicate which skin type that it is best used for under each product listing.
I'm not sure what my skin type is?
That's absolutely fine we all start somewhere. The simplest way to quickly establish what skin type you are is by taking this quick quiz.
Your products have made me breakout, I don’t understand why?
Your skin may be purging.
Skin purging occurs when you start using a new product that contains exfoliants such as acids, and retinoids, all of which speed up the rate of skin cell turnover. (the rate at which you shed dead skin cells and replace them with new cells)
To a certain extent, the skin has to bring up all of the gunk in the deeper layers to the surface in order to ultimately get rid of it. This can look like acne or a breakout or clusters of small red bumps.
A traditional pimple typically takes anywhere from eight to 10 days to appear, mature, and shrink. A breakout from a purge is likely to show up and then disappear in about five days.
How do i know if my skin is purging or having a reaction?
If you’re experiencing redness, irritation, burning, stinging, or rashes, especially if they’re widespread, these are not signs of purging, but rather an allergic reaction, discontinue use asap.
Are your bottles recyclable?
Our bottles and disc caps are 100% recyclable and our labels are produced with chemically safe inks and adhesives.
Our skincare range is presented in Type 1 PET recyclable plastic, this means it’s made from plastic that has already been created and it is accepted in recycle bins across Aotearoa. Simply remove the label, reuse or rinse & place it in your recycle bin.
Why do we bother? Cause we all need to seriously start giving a sh*t about the environment as business owners and as consumers.
Prices are subject to change without notice.
Homey and sustainability
We hear ya when you say packaging is everything but is it really that important?
At Homey we are taking a 'less packaging approach' by opting out of using single boxed packaging per product.
We package your order accordingly to eliminate waste so you may get a shipping box or you may not, but whatever the mood, rest assured that it will arrive to you in a plant based compostable courier bag!
When you receive your order you can be sure to find that it is packed using a mixed range of eco wrap, eco-friendly tissue paper, and 100% compostable & biodegradable packing peanuts. Sometimes you may get bubble wrap that we have opted to reuse from incoming stock.
