FAQs

What makes Asulo Organics products unique? 

If you are already conscious about the foods that you eat, and the way that they're prepared and grown then the next step is to bring that same awareness to your skincare products.  Asulo Organics prides itself in using only the purest, cold pressed, raw organic oils to craft our formulas. We use fair trade, organic plant distillates for our products. Pure essential oils give each of our products a delightful and unique scent which will make you feel like you have made a trip to the spa. We believe that the end product is only as good as its building blocks and so we go the extra distance to source these potent, vibrant and nutrient rich ingredients so that you your skin will radiate health both inside and out.

Where do Asulo Organics’ ingredients come from?

Asulo Organics ingredients are sourced from a few carefully chosen, highly reputable companies located in the United States. Many of the ingredients sourced from these companies are themselves grown/processed in the US, but some exotic ingredients are made from plants that are not grown locally and these are sourced internationally.

Does Asulo Organics use non-organic ingredients?

Yes, we do use a minimal number of non-organic ingredients. Certain ingredients are difficult to source as organic and ingredients like distilled water are never organic.

Are your products vegan and gluten free?

All of our products are vegan and gluten free.

What is an essential oil?

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are powerfully fragrant and are non-water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils, so they are exceptionally clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue. They are usually prepared by techniques such as steam distillation, cold pressing, or solvent extraction.

What are the benefits of using essential oils in skin care?

Essential oils contain potent medicinal and cosmetic properties, and can work to support the body’s own healing system. Many of them have antioxidant, antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can benefit skin. They can also provide aromatherapy properties that can either calm, or elevate mood and these can provide an additional value to skincare.

What are the benefits of using Magnesium in skin care?

Magnesium can also help to protect your skin from external damage, as it regulates cellular regeneration and repair, increasing the recovery when skin is disturbed and strength when it is under attack.

What is the main difference between your products and the ones I buy from the drug or department store?

Mainstream, department store brands tend to use primarily synthetic ingredients. Even products labeled natural may contain harmful chemicals that have been isolated from natural plant ingredients. In such cases the term naturally derived may give consumers the illusion that they are purchasing a safer product when the reality presents an entirely different picture.

In order for a skincare product to be considered truly natural, it should not contain any of the following type ingredients.

GMOs (genetically modified organisms)

Parabens

Petrochemicals

Phthalates

Sulfates

Synthetic fragrances

Synthetic dyes

Triclosan

Asulo Organics goes a step beyond “not containing harmful ingredients”. Our oils are not just natural but also unrefined, cold-pressed, and organic, meaning that they have color, scent, and a list of amazing phytonutrients. The same is true for the plant extracts and plant distillates used in our formulas. We create skincare products that are natural and safe so that our consumers can benefit from these amazing ingredients which are different from the ones found at the local supermarket or department store.

What is the shelf life of Asulo Organics products, given they are preservative-free or have minimal preservatives?

In general, our products are good to use for at least a year and a half. They are safe to use even a little beyond that time frame if they contain a preservative and have been kept in a cool, dark environment.

Since we manufacture only in small batches and store our products in optimal conditions, they stay fresh until they reach you. Most of our products are stored in containers that protect the contents from light and contamination.

I have sensitive skin, can I use Asulo Organics Products?

Asulo Organics products are perfect for those with sensitive skin. We believe that skincare products should gently restore skin to optimum health and so all of our products are made with that in mind. Please read our ingredient labels to be aware of any specific ingredients that you are aware of having a sensitivity to and avoid these particular products. In general, we avoid using ingredients that are well known allergens, but there are always those who have issues with specific plants.

I have allergies; can I use Asulo Organics Products?

If you can identify the substances that you have allergies to it is pretty easy to avoid them by simply reading labels carefully and avoiding the products that contain these ingredients. If you find yourself reacting to a Asulo Organics product for any reason, please contact us and we will be happy to either replace it with another product or offer you a refund.

Asulo Organics does not use any of the synthetic ingredients that often cause allergic reactions, however, some perfectly natural and pure ingredients from nature can cause allergies in a small percentage of people. If you have a lot of known sensitivities, it is always best to try just a little of a product on some part of your body other than your face to test for a reaction before using on your face.

Can I use Asulo Organics products with my other skin care products?

Of course! It is a marketing myth that you can use only one product line at a time. That said, once you become accustomed to the beauty and effectiveness of using truly natural products, you may never want to go back!
