Product Questions

Where are The Loving Nature products made?
All of our products are freshly handmade by us in our workshop in Pembrokeshire, Wales (United Kingdom) to a 100% natural recipe using the best and purest ingredients.
Are you using sustainable packaging?

We successfully replaced all our plastic jars with aluminium tins as an eco-friendly and more sustainable option. We use glass bottles and avoid plastic as much as possible in our packaging.

To minimise our packaging & waste: 

  • We have reduced our postage wrapping/packaging footprint by reducing the size, the actual amount of packaging we use for posting the items and by going 100% plastic-free
  • We use corrugated paper as protective padding and cushion from impact, manufactured from recycled paper and fully recyclable
  • When needed, we use EcoFlo void fill. It is made from starch in a single-stage process (uses a lot less energy compared with the manufacturing process for the polystyrene version, which is multi-stage). It is 100% compostable, biodegradable and fully soluble when immersed in water
  • Plain brown packaging paper is being used for some products (from sustainable forestry sources)
  • We send our products in plastic-free paper padded envelopes, 100% biodegradable and recyclable or in recyclable green jiffy bags. These bags have a natural, 100% recycled, paper fibre lining; therefore they are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to plastic bubble wrapping
  • We print as much as possible on recycled paper that comes from 100% post-consumer waste
Are your products vegan-friendly?
Yes, our products are suitable for Vegans unless ingredients include beeswax.
Is the beeswax in your products ethically sourced?
Yes, the beeswax we are using is certified cruelty free. Our suppliers do not perform animal testing and our beeswax supply comes from fair-trade farms that ethically harvest the wax, meaning that there is plenty of food and wax left for the bees after the harvest.
Do your products contain Certified Organic ingredients?
We use 100% natural ingredients and wherever possible we choose certified organic ingredients. These ingredients are marked with an asterisk (*) in the ingredient list of each product.
Shouldn't something 100% natural be also 100% organic?
The ingredients we use are all-natural, meaning they’re not synthetic/man-made in a lab. They all come from nature, but only a certain percentage of them have also been Certified/Approved as ‘Organic’ (grown using organic farming methods without utilising synthetics fertilisers, genetically modified (GM) ingredients, herbicides, etc).

That’s why we only state the actual percentages (e.g. ‘100% Natural – 80% Organic’) as opposed to many companies who will use these terms to deceive consumers when in reality they only use a very small percentage of natural and/or certified organic ingredients. It is similar to the idea of ‘Greenwashing’ and we will never do that to our customers. What it says on the label is what’s in the actual product(s).

Do you test the products on animals?
No, The Loving Nature never has and never will test products on animals or buy ingredients from suppliers who do this.
Do you use fragrance oils or essential oils?
Our products are made using only the very purest essential oils. We would never use fragrance. Also, wherever possible we use certified organic essential oils.
Are you using any GMO ingredients?
No, we do not use GMO ingredients in any of our products. We make sure to request from our suppliers, documentation and proof that ALL of our ingredients were produced without the use of genetically modified organisms.
Do your products contain Palm Oil?
No, we don’t use any Palm Oil in our products.
Since you don't use preservatives, how long do your products last (shelf life)?
Use our natural organic deodorant cream within 12 months of opening for maximum effect. It will keep well if you store it in a cool, dry place and always with the lid on.

How long would your deodorant last when used daily?
With daily use, the 15ml sample tin can last around 4 weeks. A 60ml tin can last around 4 months while a 100ml tin has been reported to last around 6 months, depending on usage. A little goes a long way so don’t apply too much 😊
I have a nut allergy, can I use your cream deodorant?
As one of the ingredients in our deodorant is Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil we recommend speaking to your doctor before using it. The coconut is a member of the palm family and is only a distant relative to the tree nut. The botanical distance between coconuts and tree nuts would suggest that people with tree nut allergies could tolerate coconut, but we recommend asking your doctor or conduct your research on this before using our deodorant.

If however, you decide to order any of our deodorants, we recommend a small 24-hour patch test behind the ear or inside elbow for any reaction to any of the ingredients on the product label. If you do have an allergy then be sure to seek medical advice before using any product you feel may have an adverse reaction to.

Are your beard care products nut-free?
Our beard products are handmade from all-natural and organic ingredients. These come with detailed manufacturer safety data sheets (MSDS) about what’s contained in them and all the safety, health and environment assessments. We have also had zero complaints from customers after selling thousands of products and all our ingredients are reported safe for nut allergy sufferers. However, our products cannot be 100% guaranteed free from traces of nuts or other allergens as there is a slight possibility that they have been manufactured in a facility that processes tree nuts, but not necessarily on the same equipment.

Therefore, as with any skin or hair care product, there may be a certain percentage of people who are hypersensitive to them. If however, you decide to order any of our products, we recommend a small 24-hour patch test behind the ear or inside elbow for any reaction to any of the ingredients on the product label. If you do have an allergy then be sure to seek medical advice before using any product you feel may have an adverse reaction to.

My skin was irritated by your deodorant cream / I noticed a slight skin rash. Why is that?
Some people have sensitive skin that can react to sodium bicarbonate deodorants. Please do a small 24-hour patch test behind the ear or inside elbow, if you have any concerns. Even with 100% natural products, some skin types can become irritated so it is often down to whether a person can tolerate sodium bicarbonate or not. This mineral has highly effective natural antibacterial properties and many benefits for your health.

Because sodium bicarbonate is slightly alkaline, it can, for some people, cause redness by affecting their skin pH. We would suggest aiding the detoxification and balancing the skin pH process by rubbing raw organic apple cider vinegar (with the ‘Mother’) or fresh lemon juice on your pits and patiently continue use. Many of our customers reported this procedure as being highly effective. If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use. Please consider using our Unscented Natural Deodorant, specially formulated for sensitive skin.

Is it safe to use your products if pregnant?
A woman’s skin becomes extra-sensitive to many substances during pregnancy. All our deodorants are safe for second and third-trimester use, with the Sensitive (unscented) version being safe throughout the entire pregnancy. All our herbal salves are safe to use in general and if there are any restrictions you will find them in the product description. For example, our Cayenne Salve, which is a natural pain relief cream, can help with pregnancy-related pain (lower back, buttocks, thighs, hips, legs, tension, stiffness, etc.). However, women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or trying to become pregnant are advised to consult their health care provider before using capsaicin (the active ingredient in our salve).

All our ingredients come directly from nature, and we don’t use mineral oils, silicones, phthalates, parabens, or any artificial fragrance or colourings in our products, but some oils may cause sensitivity during pregnancy. For a full listing of pregnancy-safe essential oils, please visit this link or ask your midwife/doctor at your next antenatal appointment.

What is the difference between your deodorant and a traditional one?
Our deodorant is 100% natural. It does not contain any parabens, aluminium salts or compounds, perfume or fragrance oils, propylene glycol, triclosan, sulphates or other harmful synthetic chemicals – ingredients commonly found in regular deodorants and antiperspirants. Our deodorants use natural ingredients to eliminate odour causing bacteria and ensure your underarm skin stays fresh all day.
What should I do if a product consistency changes?
Sometimes, quite rarely, the active ingredients can partially melt or separate in all-natural products. This could happen because we don’t use any binding agents, chemical hardeners, preservatives or liquefiers in our products. It also depends on several external factors like temperature, handling and storage, etc. That is absolutely normal and natural. If excessive melting occurs thoroughly stir the mixture then place it in the fridge for a short time until it hardens back. The product is still okay to use and will have the same properties as before! If still unsure of what to do, please contact us via Chat or E-mail. We are here to help!
I noticed on the ingredient list Benzyl Benzoate, Eugenol, Limonene etc. Aren't these parabens/artificial preservatives?

For all products made in the EU, the rules require a product listing to also include a list of possible skin irritants or allergens at the end of the listing. Examples of these components are Geraniol, Limonene, Citronellol, Eugenol and Benzyl Benzoate which are naturally occurring components of essential oils. For instance, Benzyl Benzoate occurs naturally in Jasmine Oil and Ylang-Ylang Oil. Limonene, Geraniol and Citronellol are natural components of Rose Oil and Eugenol is a big part of Clove Oil. We will never use synthetic chemicals in our products!

What happens with duties and import fees?
For orders shipped to customers based in the EU, there are no customs/import fees. For customers located anywhere else, taxes and import duties are the responsibility of the buyer. We are unable to determine the amount as this depends on the buyer’s country. Different countries have different rates for each product so it is best to check before placing an order to avoid disappointment. 
How are your products packaged and posted?
Our products contain high concentrations of natural active ingredients so we package them in aluminium recipients or glass. We send all our products in Plastic Free Paper Padded Envelopes (100% Biodegradable and Recyclable ) or Recyclable ‘Green Jiffy Bags’. These bags have a natural, 100% recycled, paper fibre lining; therefore they are a Sustainable and Eco-Friendly alternative. We use corrugated paper as protective padding and cushion from impact, which is manufactured from recycled paper & is fully recyclable. Whenever needed we use EcoFlo Void Fill, manufactured from starch in a single-stage process (uses a lot less energy compared with the manufacturing process for the polystyrene version, which is multi-stage). This is a 100% Compostable and Biodegradable material and is also fully soluble when immersed in water. Plain brown packaging paper is also being used for some products (from sustainable forestry sources).
