To get you started on your iUNIK journey, we've compiled some of the most asked questions about iUNK. As well as some products that we're most excited about down below. These include oil cleansers, gel creams, relief serums and more!
Is the iUNIK Skincare Range Cruelty-free and vegan?
The iUNIK brand is officially PETA certified, meaning that they do not conduct animal testing for their products or ingredients. iUNIK does offer a range of Vegan products like their Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil.
They do however have certain product lines with animal-derived ingredients. It's best to refer to each individual product listing to determine if the product is classified as vegan!
Is natural skincare better than chemical?
Natural skincare ingredients are exactly what they sound like. They're derived from natural sources like fruits, plants, natural oils and even some animal secretions! These types of ingredients have exploded in popularity within the skincare industry and for good reason.
We still love the staple chemical based skincare ingredients in many of our products. Niacinamide and hyaluronic acid are still staples in my skincare routine.
However, there are several reasons why many have turned to natural alternatives.
1. They're more suitable for some skin types, particularly those who are sensitive!
2. They pack some amazing benefits that have been harnessed for thousands of years.
3. They're better for the environment, with less contaminants going down the sink.
4. It helps to promote consumer awareness and transparency of ingredients.
