QUESTIONS WE ARE OFTEN ASKED
Q Why don’t these preparations have a strong scent?
A. All of our preparations contain the perfume of the natural herb and its oils. We do not add any artificial perfumes.
Q. Do Simply Herbs® preparations contain any colouring?
A. No there is no added colour in our own Herbal Preparations. What you see is the natural colour of the herb and its bases.
Q The Creams appear greasy.
A. All of our preparations contain only natural bases. They may appear to be greasy at first. This is normal, and is because we do not add any water, or dilute them in any way. Please remember not to apply too much as they are very concentrated.
Q. Are they tested on animals?
A. DEFINITELY NOT. THEY ARE ENTIRELY CRUELTY FREE.
Q. Are they safety tested?
A. Yes all of our unique preparations have been tested by an independent laboratory and comply with the latest EEC requirements for cosmetics. Please see the Safety Testing page of this website.
Q. Are they long lasting?
A. Yes, because you do not need to apply much at one time. They should last a long time (depending on how much and how often you apply).
Q. Do you make medical claims?
A. No, we do not make any medical claims; however, many customers have written and told us about their success with our preparations. These testimonials are available for you to read throughout our catalogue, at our farmers’ market venues and on our website.
