Nourisse FAQ

How Do I Add an Adjustment Powder (Light, dark, yellow or pink)?2018-11-06T14:00:14+00:00
First pry off the lid of the sifter container with a thin knife.
Spoon out about one half of the powder in a bowl and add a little darkener/lightener/yellow to that (start with 1/4 of the small pot included). If adding pink, add a much smaller amount at a time.
Stir it / mix it WELL and test it on your skin. If it’s not the perfect shade, add more until you get the right color.
If you need more of the lightener or darkener, neutralizing (yellow), or pink powder, just ask and we’ll send the first extra for free.
Keep the remaining original color in a zip-lock bag or other leak-proof container and save it for another season. Your skin will probably be slightly different then, and the original color may be perfect for you.
Do All the Moisturizers Have the Same Formula?2018-08-08T01:47:34+00:00
Yes, the moisturizer base is the same for all of our moisturizers.  The differences are between the scents and the skin care properties of the essential oils.
Both Rose and Frankincense oils have long been used for their many skin care attributes.
Rose oil has a nutritive blend of vitamins and minerals to feed your skin, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness other types of inflammation, and antiseptic and astringent properties which are very good for acne. Rose essential oil is also an excellent moisturizer for dry skin, with its unique emollient qualities, so you could say it is more moisturizing than our other creams.
Frankincense essential oil is known for its anti-aging properties: it helps prevent wrinkles, lifts and tightens skin. It is also a powerful astringent and helps to reduce pore size, and helps treat acne blemishes.
Citrus oils (lemon, orange, grapefruit) make skin more sensitive to the sun, so if you are prone to burning, or do not use a sunscreen, we recommend that you use them only at night.  Choose another scent for daytime use.
Ylang ylang oil offers very good sebum balancing for both oily and dry skin. (Sebum is the natural oil produced by our skin.)
What Shade is Right for Me?2019-10-07T03:09:58+00:00

Does your skin have a pink or more neutral or yellow tone?  The original line has pink undertones; the golden line has more neutral / yellow undertones.

All of our shades are customizable. They come with extra lightening and darkening powders, so you can mix in what you need to correct your shade, if necessary. See simple instructions below. They are also included with your package.

How Should I Apply the Mineral Sun Powder?2018-11-06T14:04:20+00:00

Unscrew the silver lid and pull the tab back to remove the transparent plastic cover over the openings. Turn the center ridge of the sifter to open.

Shake a little of the powder into the lid. Dab your powder brush into it. Then turn the brush upside down and tap the handle on the counter to make the excess on the tips go into the brush.

You can also apply the powder using a wet brush. The coverage will be higher and the finish will be flawless.

All of My Sun Powder is On Top of the Sifter2017-11-15T01:58:40+00:00

To get the powder back into the bottom of the container, make sure that the perforated side of the sifter (with the small round openings) is open, and not covered by the clear half of the sifter top. Replace the cover and gently shake the container side to side, keeping the container level (top side up). The powder should gradually sift into the bottom of the container.  Store the jar right side up.

If you would like a more open sifter that makes it easier to get the powder back into the container, we’ll send you one at no charge, we just ask that you pay the shipping of $2.75. Or ask for one to be included free with your next order.

Do Nourisse Products Contain Parabens?2017-11-15T01:52:15+00:00

Our mission at Nourisse Naturals is to avoid all suspect substances. We go as far as to say that if an ingredient hasn’t been accepted as an edible substance, we avoid using it.

WHAT ARE PARABENS?

Parabens are common preservatives to prevent bacterial growth and extend the shelf life of the product. Some studies have linked parabens to breast cancer due to their estrogenic effects and that parabens have been found in breast tumors. Even without positive proof they cause cancer, we choose to avoid them.

NAMES

Parabens have many variations and names: methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, or benzylparaben are the most common, but they can also be identified as Alkyl parahydroxy benzoate’s, 4-hydroxybenzoic acid, or even esters of parahydroxybenzoic acid.

ALTERNATIVES

While some product are preserved with ethylhexylglycerin (which is plant-derived) or phenoxyethanol, a naturally derived ether alcohol, we prefer to use a food preservative: potassium sorbate, which will preserve the product for a year or two. We don’t feel that it’s necessary – or desirable – to preserve it beyond that, since after that time the oils have oxidized and you shouldn’t use the product regardless of the amount of bacteria in it.
