1. How should my skincare regime be built with SANS products?
You should start by cleansing with our pH balancing cleanser- pHresh cleanser , then toning with our AHA/BHA toner- two peas in a pod toner that helps with exfoliating dead skin cells, clarifying pores, and combating acne and finally locking in everything with our Niacinamide moisturiser- cream of all trades moisturiser, that is packed with all the good stuff that helps with combating dry skin, acne, fine lines, and overall, improving your skin health to give you that glow.
2. How should I know if SANS products are suitable for my skin?
Unfortunately, there are differences in each individual’s skin type and everyone reacts differently to certain skincare ingredients or products. To avoid skin irritation or allergic reactions due to sensitivity to certain skincare ingredients that might be present in our products, we recommend you to conduct a patch test before fully committing to our products. You can do so by applying a small amount of the product on the back of the ear or inner forearm, leave it on for 24-48 hours before rinsing it off and look for signs of itchiness, redness or bumpiness.
