Please note that any recommendation is given in good faith and is no substitute for you learning more about a product, whether it may be suitable for you and whether it may provoke allergies.

The advice and recommendations provided are not to be construed as medical or dermatological advice and we always encourage you to seek the advice of a professional if you are concerned.

Are the Skin Rocks products vegan-friendly?

The Cream Cleanser (Fragranced, Fragrance Free and Supersize), The Rich Moisturiser (Fragranced and Fragrance Free), The Support Oil, The Gentle Acid, The Antioxidant: 

These products do not contain any animal or animal-derived ingredients. 

Retinoid 1 and 2 (plus Refill):

Neither Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 or 2 contain any ingredients of animal origin or direct animal by-products (such as honey, milk or beeswax). However, please note that both Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 & 2 contain ‘xanthan gum’ - a viscosity controlling (thickening) ingredient, from fermented sugar molecules. The ingredient itself is not of animal origin and is classed as vegan by industry standards. However, the fermentation process may have involved enzymes derived from the albumen portion of eggs in the past. Therefore, we feel it could potentially be misleading to say that these products are 100% vegan. We are constantly reviewing the information provided by our material suppliers, and actively looking to source suitable alternatives for this material for future developments.

The Moisturiser (Fragranced and Fragrance Free): 

The Moisturiser contains '7-dehydrocholesterol' (pro-vitamin D3), derived from the wool grease of healthy, living animals. We are constantly reviewing the information provided by our material suppliers and looking to source suitable alternatives for this material for future developments. However, we will only switch once we can ensure that this will not compromise the product's performance.

The Control Acid:

The Control Acid contains honey extract, which is part of a key raw material blend, for its soothing benefits. Therefore, it is not suitable for vegans.

What does the signature Skin Rocks scent smell like?

We went super subtle with our signature Skin Rocks scent; it’s as cool, crisp and refreshing as a tall glass of icy sparkling water with a twist of lemon peel and a scrunch of mint.

Are the Skin Rocks products cruelty-free? Are they tested on animals?

Yes, Skin Rocks is, and will always remain, cruelty free. Skin Rocks does not test products or ingredients on animals, nor do we ask any third parties to do so on our behalf. Skin Rocks products are developed to fully comply with relevant cosmetic legislation, including the EU Cosmetic Regulation (Ec. No. 1223/2009), the equivalent UK law (Schedule 34, The Product Safety and Metrology etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019)), both of which have made cosmetic animal testing illegal. It is also our company policy not to sell Skin Rocks cosmetic products in any countries that require animal testing in order to enter the market.

Are the Skin Rocks retinoids and acid toners suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Our retinoids and acid toners are topically applied, facial cosmetic products that are safe to use during pregnancy/breastfeeding. All Skin Rocks products are developed to fully comply with both the UK and EU Cosmetic Regulation and undergo a strict independent safety assessment before they can be sold to consumers. 

Compared to prescription strength vitamin A products/medications, the risk associated with topical cosmetics including retinoids is assumed to be minimal. To that point, there is currently, nor has there ever been, no regulatory requirement in the UK, EU or USA to label cosmetics containing retinoids as 'not suitable when pregnant/breastfeeding'. However, if you are worried about using vitamin A/retinoids, please wait until after pregnancy. While the industry is confident that topical cosmetic retinoids are safe to use while pregnant, the general medical consensus is, if in doubt, avoid.

Are the Skin Rocks products recyclable?

The Cream Cleanser (Fragranced, Fragrance Free and Supersize)

Tube: Mixed Plastic (HDPE / LDPE Blend)

Cap: PP

Carton and Leaflet: All paper and card are from a certified FSC source.

The Cream Cleanser cartons and leaflets are fully recyclable in the cardboard/paper stream.

As always, we at Skin Rocks develop with 'formula first' in mind. On this occasion, we decided that a tube was the most appropriate for this formulation to aid ease of use whilst still providing a premium look and feel. We have done our best to choose a tube that is technically recyclable, provided the country you are in has the appropriate collection/sorting infrastructure for plastic in place. For example, while this is widely the case across the majority of Europe, the UK does not currently have the infrastructure in place to collect and appropriately sort and recycle cosmetic tubes such as this.

Skin Rocks will consistently monitor any updates to this area, and how it may impact our product development process. Please check requirements and capabilities locally before disposal.

A note from Caroline:

We will always package our products based on the usage behaviour of our customers. Following testing it was clear that people wanted to be able to travel with The Cream Cleanser and use it in showers. Glass simply wasn’t appropriate here.

Retinoid 1 and 2 (plus Refill):

We aim to make all of our packaging readily recyclable or refillable. The pumps for our Retinoid products are not currently recyclable unless dismantled. We encourage you to keep your pump and glass bottle and purchase a refill instead. 

Once you have finished and would like to recycle your product, rinse and dry out all componentry and please check materials against local requirements. While we aim to make our packaging as easy to recycle as possible, recycling regulations vary by city and country.

Are The Support Oil, Retinoid 1 and 2, The Control Acid and The Gentle Acid fragrance free?

Yes, each of these products is fragrance free.

Are The Gentle Acid and The Control Acid suitable for all skin types?

The Gentle Acid: 

The Gentle Acid is suitable for all skin types. It has been specifically formulated to benefit those with dull, uneven skin. 

Whilst this product should be okay to use if you are prone to sensitivity, we would always recommend a patch test before first use and to discontinue use if there are any signs of irritation. You should not be using acid products on any areas of skin that are actively sensitised or if you have a known allergy to any of the ingredients used.

The Control Acid:

The Control Acid has been specifically formulated to benefit those with oily/congested skin. If these are not concerns for you, you may be more suited to The Gentle Acid.

The Control Acid is suitable for anyone experiencing hormonal changes in their skin, whether that's due to puberty, contraception or menopause. The majority of skincare products should be used by those aged 16 and above, unless specified otherwise. However, as The Control Acid was designed with hormonal breakouts in mind, it can be suitable for younger skin experiencing this concern if used under parental supervision.

The Skin Rocks App

How do you decide which brands feature on the app?

If you're a brand, you will be featured! We are building a skincare database which aims to include everyone.

Are there any brands that you won't feature?

No, Skin Rocks is a database that has no bias, so all skincare brands will be included. Users will be recommended products based on their profile - this might mean you see some brands more than others as they target your skin concerns.

How can I get my brand featured on the app and how much will it cost?

It won't cost you anything to be on the app. If you're a new brand, please introduce yourself to our team via brands@skinrocks.com and we can take it from there.

Will you include subscription skincare services?

Yes, you will see the likes of Skin+Me and Dermatica on the app. As these are prescription brands, it is not possible to showcase each individual product, as they are prescribed bespoke to you.

Who do I consult if I don't agree with the app’s recommendations?

The app's recommendations are purely driven by science, facts and the information provided in users' profiles. Skin Rocks product pages are led by fact, not opinion.

Who do I contact if my brand's info is incorrect?

If you have spotted an error in your brand's factual information, please contact brands@skinrocks.com.
