Frequently asked questions

Do I have to keep the creams or serums in a special place like the fridge as they are all natural?


All the products in the line contain an all-natural broad-spectrum preservative. There is no need to keep the creams or serums in the fridge.




What is the shelf life of the ultra rich cream?


Although all our products contain an all-natural broad-spectrum preservative, they must be used within 8 months.




I have allergies to scented products, do you have any options for me?


Yes, we have a couple of products that come unscented such as our Lip Balm, Sugar Scrub & Ultra Rich Cream. Our dry face wash does not have any scent added to it but does have natural scents from the ingredients: honey powder, oatmeal, sandalwood powder & clay.




Are your products gluten free?


All our products are gluten free except for the dry face wash. Those with extreme allergies to gluten or who are celiac may have reactions to the colloidal oatmeal.




Are your products safe to use on children?


With using any new product we recommend doing a patch test regardless of age. If you are allergic to an ingredient like honey for example, then you would react to the dry face wash. Products that we recommend for young children include our orange blossom, floralissima & unscented ultra rich creams, our unscented, chocolate macaroon & peppermint lip balms & our lavender bubble bath.




Do you have any products that help with eczema or psoriasis?


Yes our ultra rich creams, (floralissima, orange blossom & unscented) & our sandalwood face cream are very gentle and all contain rosehip seed and evening primrose oil two ingredients that have been seen to help eczema.




With all of the hand sanitizing and hand washing my hands are just raw, do you have anything that would help keep them moisturized or repair them?


We would recommend our ultra rich creams. They are packed with emollient rich oils that will soothe as well as keep your hands moisturized. The beeswax in it creates a protective barrier while still allowing the skin to breathe.




How often should I exfoliate?


Some people can exfoliate 2 to 3 times a week while others can use a very gentle exfoliant like our dry face wash every day. Everyone’s skin is different and so there is no one right answer here. We recommend starting with once a week and slowly increasing.




Do you have products for Men?


We like to say that all our products are great for men! But the ones men tend to gravitate towards are our Measha Body Butter which makes a great alternative to after shave & cologne and, it has a spicy warm scent, our dry face wash as it is great before shaving as it removes dead skin cells so you get a closer shave, and our unscented ultra rich cream.




Do your moisturizers have an SPF?


No.




Do you have a brick and mortar store I can pick up product from?


No, we currently do not have a brick and mortar store but we do offer curbside pick up. You can email us at info@cararbn.com to schedule a time.
