Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, they are! Au Natural Skinfood contains only natural ingredients that are paraben free and healthy for your skin. All our products are formulated from high quality, ethically-sourced ingredients largely from New Zealand.
We love mānuka honey and its natural benefits! 16+ refers to The Molan Gold Standard™ (MGS) which is a grading system reviewed by the Ministry for Primary Industries of New Zealand. It appraises the natural marker methylglyoxal found in mānuka honey and assures purity and quality.
Yes we are vegetarian. Although we use all naturally derived ingredients, we can’t be certified organic or vegan just yet, as most of our skincare products contain active 16+ mānuka honey, which is not an organic or vegan approved ingredient at this stage.
All our products are natural and paraben free. The Au Natural Skinfood range is also free from silicones, artificial colours, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals, propylene or butylene glycols, DEA or MEA ingredients, volatile alcohols, sodium laureth or lauryl sulphate, phthalates, propylene glycol.

Bees are so important to the planet, we want to make sure we look after them. Absolutely no bees are harmed in the making of our products.
What does ‘skinfood’ mean? Often skincare companies work on improving the appearance of your skin by focussing on its topmost layer or epidermis. Au Natural Skinfood instead improves the overall health of your skin by ‘feeding’ all the layers of the dermis with the best ingredients. After all, the skin is the largest organ of our bodies, so we better look after it properly! Au Natural works on an effective system of products that work together to improve the overall health of your skin by eliminating bacteria on the skin’s surface while strengthening its natural barrier. Au Natural Skinfood strengthens and prepares your skin for the life you live, and a healthy skin will naturally look good.
Au Natural Skinfood improves the overall health of your skin by naturally strengthening the skin and by increasing its resistance to environmental damage. It is ideal for every skin type, age, gender and ethnicity.
Yes, the Au Natural Skinfood range is totally safe to use during pregnancy and nursing. If you have concerns it is always advisable to consult your medical practitioner for advice prior to using.

We have chosen specific plastics for our hard containers. These have already had a previous life and can continue to have a future life after you have used them, as they include a minimum of 50% PCR or post consumer recycled plastic. Our cardboard boxing and courier cartons are fully recyclable.
Great question. We have chosen specific plastics for our hard containers. These have already had a previous life and can continue to have a future life after you have used them, as they include a minimum of 50% PCR or post consumer recycled plastic. All of our products are made from materials that can be recycled, but often it comes down to your local Council or State recycling capability. To get around this problem and ensure we are recycling our packaging, you can choose to return all your Au Natural Skinfood empty containers (or any other brand!) by selecting one of our courier bags at time of purchase. Returning these ensures all empty products can be sorted, recycled and given a second life using a program we partner with TerraCycle where all components are recycled. Your Au Natural Skinfood products are packaged in recyclable or refillable containers, we use recyclable cardboard packaging and environmentally friendly courier packaging with as few unnecessary layers as possible. These can be refilled or returned to us and we will arrange sustainable and specific recycling for them if your local kerbside recyclers cannot. Keep pushing your council, parliamentarians and senators for better recycling wherever you live!
