FAQ's

Are TRUE products certified organic?
All TRUE products use organically grown ingredients or COSMOS approved ingredients. We are proud to be a Certified Organic brand by the Soil Association.

How natural are TRUE products?
All of the products within the TRUE skincare range products are 99-100% natural and do not contain any parabens or harsh chemicals.

Are TRUE products suitable for vegans?
All of our products are suitable for vegans. Unlike many brands, even our challenge testing is conducted using only plant-based vegan culture.

Are TRUE products Halal?
We do not use any ingredients which are prohibited in Islam - such as animal-derived ingredients, certain alcohols and GMOs -in any of our products, however we are not a certified Halal brand.

Are TRUE products tested on animals?
No. We have never, and will never, test on animals. We are proud to be Leaping Bunny approved by Cruelty Free International.

Do any of the TRUE products contain palm oil?
No, none of our products contain palm oil. We vet all of our suppliers to ensure that there are no palm oil derivatives in our ingredients, including the Glycerin we use, which can often be derived from palm oil without the need to declare this on the INCI list.

Can I recycle TRUE product packaging?
We use glass and card wherever possible. Please do recycle our bottles, droppers, cartons and gift boxes. For some stockists, we are required to cellowrap our products, however we only use Natureflex cellophane, which is 100% compostable. We also use corn starch chips as void filler in our customer orders which are 100% biodegradable and can even be dissolved in water. Please help us save our planet by recycling our packaging.

Where can I purchase TRUE products?
You can purchase the range through one of our amazing stockists including Holland and Barrett, LookFantastic.com, FeelUnique, Ocado,  Boots online and Birchbox, and of course, you can purchase directly from us through our website! We recommend you only purchase our products from one of our authorised stockists as we cannot guarantee that listings on ebay or other market places are genuine.

Why do "Country Taxes" appear on my order summary at checkout?
Although this can seem a bit confusing, this is just another phrase for UK VAT (if you are ordering from the UK). We use Stripe as our payment platform, and these details automatically pull from here. Although it may look like extra charges are appearing on your order, you are still only paying the displayed RRP and postage fees, however the VAT appears on this separate "Country Taxes" line. So for example, if you order one of our Facial Oils for £13.50, the "Sub Total" will show as £13.50, the Shipping Fee of £4.99, which totals £18.49 and the "Country Taxes" will appear as the VAT on this total, so in this case, £3.08.

Are TRUE products suitable for sensitive skin?
All of our products are 99%-100% natural, 83%-100% organic and avoid any harsh chemicals or parabens. Although our products are gentle, if you suffer from severe sensitivity, skin disorders or allergies, we recommend you consult your doctor or dermatologist and/or conduct a patch test. All of our ingredients are listed on the product pages, so please do check these before making your purchase.

Do any of your products contain gluten?
None of the ingredients in our formulations contain any obvious source of gluten, however we cannot guarantee that the raw material supplies do not use derivatives which contain gluten in their manufacturing processes. Although Coeliac disease is linked to the digestive system, we do ask that you consult your doctor before purchasing.

Do you use essential oils in your formulations?
Yes, our products do contain carefully selected essentials oils to help the skin and mind, however the concentrations of these are very low (less than 1.5%).

Are TRUE products suitable for use during pregnancy?
TRUE products are considered safe for use during pregnancy as the concentration of essential oils used in our products are extremely low. Our products are naturally fragrant which is something to consider if you are very sensitive to smell. We would always recommend consulting your doctor before using our products should there be any concern at all.

Why are TRUE products so affordable?
We believe that beauty should be inclusive, not exclusive which is why we've made a conscious decision to reduce our profits without compromising on elegance, ethics or efficacy, so that you can benefit from premium, yet accessible natural and organic skincare.

Do you offer samples?
Unfortunately due to the volume of sample requests we receive, we are unable to send samples upon request.

How long will my delivery take?
All orders are aimed to be delivered within 3-5 working days of receiving your order as outlined in our Delivery & Returns Policy and at checkout, subject to Royal Mail's punctuality. Next Working Day delivery is available when making your purchase prior to 2pm (aside from during times of unprecedented demand where this may be disabled), and this can be chosen at checkout.
