Is this safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women?
Yes, the vegan formula is gentle and soothing; however, we recommend consulting your attending physician before use.
How do kids use this?
This item is uniquely suitable for children over 12 months of age, especially if they have chronically red, dry skin on their arms or legs. Some kids do not like the smell, stinging sensation or "heavy" greasy feeling from typical medical creams, and this can be a wonderful alternative for them before bedtime due to its soothing, pleasant scent and texture.
Phoebe, our Founder, allows her daughter to scoop the cream out herself with the spoon; for a 6-year-old, this is a fun pre-bedtime activity each night that teaches and reinforces good self-care routines from an early age!
Can I use this if I have oily, acne-prone skin?
Ceramides, Niacinamide, Allantoin and Rice Ferment create a powerful complex of skin-soothing and barrier-nourishing ingredients. When paired with 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) (one being the Italian bio-fermented HA used in our Ceramide & EGF Treatment Orbs), the absorption rate is maximized for efficient potency without greasy, oily residue.
The soothing mechanism can still be beneficial for oily, acne-prone skin types; though we suggest a one-night patch test on the face to ensure minimal risk of irritation or clogging.
Do I have to use this mask with the spoon? Or can I just use my fingers?
Our special custom-made spoon looks like an ice cream scoop, but when turned onto its concave side, it can help spread the mask around on the skin without using fingers. Due to the thick, rich texture of the cream, it may get stuck underneath long nails, so we would recommend using this spoon to minimize wastage, spillage or mess; it's more hygienic too!
