Do you test on animals?
We test on real people, not animals. All ingredients are 100% vegan-friendly and cruelty-free.
How long is the shelf life? Can the products change color?
Both the Kale-lalu-yAHA and Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser can be used for 12 months after opening and have a 24-month lifespan when remain sealed. All KraveBeauty products are free of artificial coloring, so the color of the products may vary by batch or even change over time. Rest assured, this does not affect the product’s efficacy and remains completely safe for your skin.
Are KraveBeauty products suitable for sensitive skin?
Our products are developed by and for people with sensitive skin, so you won’t find any irritants or potential allergens in our formulations. However, as everyone's skin is different and skin sensitivity is caused by many different factors, your skin may react differently to a product than your friend's might.
Will there be more products in the range?
Our goal will never be to have the widest collection. We simply want to create products that have personality, purpose and are blended with ingredients that your skin really deserves and craves. Only when we've met these criteria and found a true need will we be releasing more products.
That is not to say we aren't keeping busy. We are currently developing two different types of moisturizers, a sunscreen and a supplement product that aims to restore the skin's epidermal barrier function.
Are KraveBeauty skincare products "all natural"?
We don’t believe in the idea that all natural skincare is necessarily always better for the skin because that isn’t the truth. Some natural ingredients, like lavender or grapefruit oil, often used as fragrance-enhancers are potential sensitizers and allergens, especially for those with sensitive skin.
Instead, we use naturally-derived ingredients that are safe and high in antioxidants and essential fatty acids, then combine them with lab-based technology to provide efficacy while still respecting your skin’s natural functionality.
All KraveBeauty products are free of fragrance and essential oils.
Where are your products made?
All KraveBeauty products are made in Korea. This simply allows us to access the highest grade of ingredients and to leverage the most sophisticated formulating technology in the industry.
Do I need a toner?
If it makes you and your skin feel good, then 100% yes. If you’re using it just because you’ve been told to do so, question it once again. Is it really helping your skin?
But you say you've heard some good things about pH balancing or clarifying toners?
We often think our skin needs to be squeaky clean and bacteria free, when in fact, this behaviour often leads to the disruption of the skin's natural, protective barrier. Be sure to take a good look at the formulation and ingredients, and make sure it's not just stripping away your skin's barrier that naturally protects and keeps your skin moisturized.
Can I skip cleansing in the morning?
Yes! Your skin isn't as "dirty" as you think. Limiting your cleansing is one of the easiest ways to restore your skin’s natural barrier function. If it feels like your skin built up some excess sebum since last night, give it a light (and quick!) wash with a hydrating cleanser.
When is the best time to test out products?
Do not shock your skin by introducing new products all at once. It’s best to slowly introduce them one at a time, so you can clearly test how your skin reacts to each individual product.
And avoid being experimental with skincare when your skin is vulnerable and reactive, for example, around our periods for us women.
Is it normal to break out after using Kale-lalu-yAHA?
This depends on the person. Some people go through a "purging" stage after incorporating AHA into their routine, some don't.
AHA accelerates the skin's cellular turnover rate, which results in a mannerism that almost pulls underdeveloped pimples to the surface faster. If you are patient and see the process through, there will be light at the end of the tunnel!
