Skin and Hair FAQ's



Why can I trust this range?

With our expertise in nutrition alongside the expertise of doctors and dermatologists we have a unique approach to skin health. Using our background in health and nutrition we understand exactly what skin and hair need for their optimal health. As a direct brand we also cut out the middle man so that we have first-hand contact with our customers and continually review comments to ensure we are continually meeting your beauty needs. We only use the highest quality ingredients and all of our products are tested on real women for proven results so that we know you’re getting the best.

Are your products tested on animals?

None of our products have been tested on animals by us or on our behalf. We also operate a strict cut-off date of 1995 for any raw materials.

I am new to the range, how do I chose?

As we age our skin needs a change that’s why we have developed a variety of products to suit all ages and skin types. If you are experiencing or have experienced the menopause then the replenish range is perfect for you. This unique range tackles the changes caused to the skin and hair during this time using phytoestrogens (plant oestrogens) which mimic natural hormones.

Perhaps your main skincare goals are more related to highly-effective anti-ageing. If this sounds right then our intensive retinol treatments are the most suited to you. Retinol is the most clinically proven anti-ageing ingredient available without prescription. It quickly works to reduce the key signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and skin tone in as little as 4 weeks.

For all your other more specific skincare needs we have many targeted treatments so have a look through our range to find nurturing solutions to care for all your skin and hair needs.

Do you have any sunscreen products?

All of the nurture day creams contain SPF for daily protection. If you are spending more time out in the sun we recommend our daily UV defence SPF30 as this offers high factor defence against the sun’s damaging UVA and UVB rays.

All of nurture's products containing SPF adhere to strict EU regulations meaning that they have gone through independent testing to ensure that they live up to their claims.

Can men use nurture products?

All nurture products are suitable for men to use.

Are your products suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

Most of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The Platinum Rewind Supplement, Replenish body butter and Replenish nourishing care conditioner do however contain fish or animal derived ingredients such as marine collagen and lanolin from sheep’s wool.

Can retinol be used at any age?

Retinol is a proven ingredient for the reduction of wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. Therefore this is most suitable for anyone who has specific signs of ageing that they want to tackle. However, we have not heard or seen any documents that reason why younger people should not use the product. In fact, many young people do use it as it is also known to be effective in helping to reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and indeed pigmentation patches caused by sun damage.

As such we would not normally give a specific age at which to start using a product, as we are sure you can appreciate that as individuals, everyone’s skin condition varies at different ages so it really is your choice.

Do nurture use preservatives?

All skin and hair care products require some sort of preservative system to ensure that they are safe for use. Without them products would inevitably become full of bacteria which could be harmful to the user.

All nurture products contain some form of preservatives, many of these being natural. We can guarantee that all ingredients used in our products have a long history of safety and are passed as safe for use under EU regulations.

Many of you may have heard about some bad press regarding parabens. Parabens are preservatives added to products in order to prolong their shelf life, keep them stable and free from harmful bacteria. Despite the scientific sounding names, some are actually found naturally, for example methylparaben is found in the blueberry shrub. Sadly misconstrued findings from one past study have caused people to doubt their safety. At nurture we keep our customer’s safety at the forefront of our minds and continually review the safety of our ingredients. We can assure you that the types of parabens and levels contained in our products are completely safe for use on the skin.

For any of you still concerned about these ingredients most of our products are paraben-free excluding the 3-in-1 gentle cleansing wipes and Replenish neck & décolletage cream.

What is the shelf life of your products?

Our products are designed to last which allows you to stock up without having to use them immediately. This works using a period after opening date. This means that the shelf life doesn’t begin until you have opened your product.

Should I be taking a skin or hair supplement?

Traditional beauty products used on skin are only able to nourish the surface layers of skin. By taking a supplement alongside your skin and hair care regime this helps to feed from below the surface. All skin and hair types can benefit from this additional support.
