Frequently asked questions we receive
Can I get some samples to try your products?
We sell our Discovery Boxes, which contain trial sizes of several of our products. These trial sizes are bigger than sample sizes and give you the opportunity to try our products before committing to the full sized ones. Each Discovery Box comes with a 10% discount to use on future purchases.
Whilst we do not currently sell samples, we offer free samples to try with all purchases.
Do you test on animals?
Are you certified organic?
No, but our products are formulated in line with recognised organic standards.
Do your products contain organic ingredients?
The products in our line contain ingredients that are either certified organic, wild crafted, or natural and sourced from conscious growers across the world.
Can I collaborate with you on Instagram/on my blog?
We would be very pleased to discuss this with you. Please get in touch with us and we can discuss a bit more about you and your audience, and we will be able to let you know if we think it will be a good fit.
How long will my products stay fresh and what is the best way to store them?
We recommend using our products within 12 months of opening (unless stated otherwise on the packaging). Our products are packaged in UV protected Miron glass jars and bottles, to protect them from UV rays which would speed up spoilage. This packaging prolongs their shelf life, but we still recommend storing them in a relatively cool place, removed from direct sunlight, heat, and humidity.
I received Body Butter Bliss and/or Velvet Concentrate Serum and it appears to have melted because of warm weather. What can I do?
With the warmer temperatures outside, the Body Butter Bliss or the Velvet Concentrate Serum may have a tendency to melt. Due to the product being specifically designed to absorb rapidly into the skin, it naturally has a softer consistency. Please note that this will have not affect the efficacy, quality or performance of the product. If your product becomes too soft, please stir it once or twice with a clean utensil and refrigerate it until it hardens again. Then allow it to adjust to room temperature.
Are Molewa Skincare products Vegan or Halal friendly?
The vast majority of our products do not contain animal derived or by-products, so are suitable for use by customers seeking Vegan and Halal friendly skincare. The exceptions to this are our soaps (which contain silk) and our Honey Rush face mask (which contains honey).
Will the face products work on my acne-prone skin, and are your products comedogenic?
Our oils and butters are rich with soothing ingredients. Our leave-on face products do not contain ingredients that are generally comedogenic, but as with any product, it is important to test a patch of skin to see how your skin will react – as everyone’s skin is unique.
How would you suggest applying the facial oils?
We suggest applying them by using 2-4 drops for your entire face, either carefully placing them straight onto your forehead, cheeks and chin, and then pressing your fingers on your face and massaging in upward strokes into your skin.
Precious Elixir can also be added to Onyx Detox face mask for extra moisturising during the treatment.
What is the difference between Azure Face Oil and Precious Elixir?
Precious Elixir is a powerful oil based serum that targets fine lines. It has is extremely rich, with precious ingredients such as Collagen, Vitamin C and powerful anti-aging oils and botanicals. It is very suitable to use during the day as it contains Vitamin C, which may help fight UV damage. It is also very suitable to use at night when your face skin is clear, resting and more receptive to receiving Precious Elixir's wonderful nutrients. This serum is very light and should be used with an additional moisturiser such as Velvet Concentrate Serum, or another moisturiser.
Azure Face Oil is well suited for day use, as it contains significant amounts of Marula and Broccoli Seed oils, which are both said to act as natural face primers, without leaving a greasy finish on the face – making this oil ideal underneath makeup and with SPF use, or mixed with foundation for a dewy makeup finish. It can also be used on its own as a moisturiser, a beard oil or after shave soothing oil.
What is the difference between Honey Rush and Onyx Detox face masks?
Honey Rush is a mild, soothing, calming and hydrating face mask with enzymes. It is suitable for sensitive, dry, dehydrated and mature skins, and is mild enough to be used more frequently during the week if so desired. It can also be used as a very gentle cleanser.
Onyx Detox is a stronger face mask, with oil controlling and pore cleansing properties, so is well suited for oilier, acne-prone and dull skin, and is recommended to be used 2-3 times weekly.
Both face masks are more effective after exfoliating with Exfoliate Dust.
How should I incorporate Velvet Concentrate Serum in my daily routine?
We recommend applying Velvet Concentrate Serum at night as a moisturiser, after cleansing and toning the skin. It can be applied on its own, but if you are a fan of layering your face products in a multi-step facial ritual, or in love with a particular Utopia elixir or serum, you can definitely layer with Velvet Concentrate Serum with no negative effects. A pea-sized amount is sufficient for your entire face.
