Sometimes my product look or smell different from previous bottles I’ve purchased - why?
We use natural ingredients and essential oils, which can exhibit deviations from harvest to harvest, different batches of the same product can occasionally vary in color, texture and fragrance. Storage conditions, including temperature and light exposure, can also have an effect. Please note this does not impact the efficacy of your product.
Do your products contain parabens, silicones or sulphates?
No. We would never use these kinds of ingredients in our products.
You may have noticed this is not specified on our labels. There is a reason for that. Within the EU it is forbidden by EU-law to mention what a product “does not” include or what a product is “free from”.
All our ingredient lists are presented on theactofcaring.com shop under “Ingredients”.
Why is there stated “perfume” in your ingredient list? Is it a synthetic perfume?
Due to changes in EU legislation all products containing any kind of fragrance, natural essential oils or synthetic, must have the word “Perfume” stated in the ingredient list. For home care products it should be stated as “Perfume”. To clarify what we use we added a bracket to our ingredient list explaining if it is a mix of essential oils or a natural fragrance.
