What is the difference between Certified Organic and Organic?


Skin Affair is so much more than “clean beauty”—we’re Certified Organic. There are so many buzz words thrown around daily regarding skincare, beauty and household products, and with Skin Affair—you know what you are getting and putting on your skin. Skin Affair is certified organic and natural in accordance with COSMOS, a global certifying agency that follows strict organic guidelines and regulations around ingredients and the manufacturing process. Simply because a product says it is “natural” or “organic” it can still have many harmful ingredients mixed in or ingredients that can turn into formaldehyde causing agents.




Are all the ingredients in Skin Affair vegan friendly?


We do not test our products on animals, and best of all, our products are vegan friendly.




Does Skin Affair test on animals?


No, we do not engage in animal testing, nor do our formulas contain animal-derived ingredients.




Essential Oils vs. Synthetic Fragrance - How and why does Skin Affair use essential oils?


Skin Affair only uses natural or organic essential oils to scent our products (NEVER artificial or synthetic fragrance), which follows our belief in presenting only the purest of skincare products. Historically, essential oils have been used for centuries to delicately fragrance the skin and have been the backbone of most natural or organic skin and body care products. We blend essential oils into our product not only from an aromatherapy standpoint—but mostly importantly—for their specific skin benefits. We use these oils at very minute levels, so as not to overpower the senses nor cause any irritation.




Are all of the ingredients in Skin Affair products sourced from South Africa?


Skin Affair continually sources the highest quality, finest ingredients for our products from around the world. All testing, production and packaging is done in Cape Town as we strive to bring you quality at the most affordable price.




How soon will I start seeing results from using Skin Affair products?


Some people see results the first time they use the products, and everyone tells us that their skin feels different straight away. The skin feels, clean, smooth, hydrated, and reflects a new level of health that is visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin ageing, acne or hyper pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow your Skin Affair skin regimen.




What is the best skincare routine to follow?


We suggest starting with just 2-3 products initially, for example- cleanser, serum and moisturiser. Allow 2-4 weeks to establish a consistent routine and ensure your skin is responding well. Then start to expand your routine and add additional products. Not sure where to start? Our travel size products is the perfect way to trial our products and see how they suit your skin.




How often should I exfoliate?


Everyone's skin is different, and it's best to adjust your routine depending on your skin type or skin concerns. Hypersensitive Skin: every 7 days Mild Rosacea & Sensitive Skin: once a week Combination/Oily Skin: 3 times per week Dry/Dehydrated, Mature & Acne-Prone Skin: 3 times per week WHICH EXFOLIATOR? Our Granular Exfoliator is a gentle, natural exfoliation with 100% renewable biodegradable and GMO free scrubbing beads. It gently buff away dead skin cells without damaging the healthy cells underneath. Spread granules on cleansed face, neck and decollete with lightly moistened hands in circular movements for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use 3-4 times a week. Suggested for Dry/Dehydrated Skin. Our enzymatic exfoliator contains papaya and gently removes dead skin cells and promotes cell turnover. Use after cleansing. Wet with Skin Affair Toning Mist and apply to clean, dry skin. Massage skin surface with wet fingertips to activate the product and leave on for 2 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. Use 3-4 times a week. Suggested for Oily/Combination Skin.




Is your product suitable for sensitive skin?


Yes, our products do not contain any soaps, alcohols or synthetic fragrances and our natural ingredients are soothing for sensitive skins.




I'm entering into the most happy period of my life. (I'm pregnant) - can I use Skin Affair?


Yes, our products are safe for you to use, If you have serious concerns, you can consult your GP prior to use. However our products do not contain any chemicals that will harm you or the baby.




Why do your products have an expiration date?


All skin and body care products are required by law to have an expiration date. This ensures that a product will uphold its integrity, quality, performance and be safe for consumer use within a given period of time. Our products have a 2-year expiration date from the date of manufacture and a 6-month period of use, once opened within this 2-year date. Skin Affair does not use any harmful or controversial preservatives, often used to extend the shelf life of cosmetic products. We only use natural-based preservatives that are globally approved by COSMOS. To ensure best quality of use, it is important to ensure your Skin Affair products are stored correctly—Keep it sealed when not in use, and out of direct heat & sunlight.




Are Skin Affair products recyclable?


We go out of our way to source recyclable packaging material where possible, such as HDPE plastic and glass as much as possible. Look out for the recyclable logo on the packaging.
