FAQ’s

How should I store my Anise Skincare products?

We recommend you keep your products in a cool place away from direct light, or better yet, in the refrigerator. This advice applies for all Anise products, regardless of whether they are contained in glass or aluminium.

The label on your Anise Skincare product displays a best before date as well as an icon that shows how many months your product will be at its best after opening..

It is best to use clean hands when dipping into jars, or to use a teaspoon or small spatula to scoop out product for use.

Why are Anise Skincare products packaged in Amber bottles?

Most of our products are packaged in pharmaceutical-grade amber PET or glass, as our formulations contain a high concentration of active botanical extracts and pure essential oils, the stability of which cannot be guaranteed if we clear packaging. Glass & PET are also easier and more efficient to recycle above other types of packaging. 

Are Anise Skincare Products tested on animals?

No, none of our products are tested on animals either by us or by anyone on our behalf. We also source ingredients that have not been tested on animals and use only certified cruelty free suppliers.

Do any of your products contain animal by-products?

Yes, our Sweet Orange & Cardamom Body Butter contains organic beeswax. This means that this product is not suitable for Vegans but is made from Organic Beeswax which guarantees that they are extracted using cruelty free methods. Our Cardamom & Vanilla Bath Milk contains buttermilk powder which is an animal product and also unsuitable for vegans. All other products in our range are 100% vegan friendly. 

Do your products contain any ‘Nasty” ingredients?

No. Our product labels are very easy to read and contain a list of botanical and natural ingredients. We also use a small amount of natural preservative that ensures our products stability and shelf life. If our products are stored correctly in a cool dark place they can even outlive their used by date. However, if you were to leave any of our products in direct sunlight they would spoil within a matter of weeks. This is important to note, and exactly how you can be sure that our products are chemical free. All of our products have at least 18 months shelf life from the date of production. Try to store our products in the fridge in summer if you wish to prolong their shelf life even more.

Anise Skincare products DO NOT contain any of the following:

Parabens, sulphates, nitrates, petro-chemicals, palm oil, bleaches or whiteners, fillers or thinners, synthetic perfumes, synthetics additives, artificial colours or flavours. Please contact us directly for enquiries specific to any particular ingredient if you are unsure. 

What if I have a reaction to one of your products?

All cosmetic ingredients have the potential to irritate sensitive skin regardless of the amount present in an individual product or the method in which it is used. 

If you believe that you are experiencing an adverse reaction, discontinue use and if necessary, consult your medical practitioner for further advice. In the unlikely event that you experience an adverse reaction to an Anise product, please discontinue use and return it to the place of purchase. Do not hesitate to contact us with the details of your reaction.

Please refer to our returns policy for further information regarding the conditions of return and exchange.
