Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have sunscreen?
Suki first recommends using UV protective clothing to shield yourself from the sun – a great brand is solumbra. please use caution when using sunscreens.
The issue is far more complex than the simple directive of “always slather on the sunscreen.” all sunscreen ingredients besides the oxides (zinc & titanium) are chemical screens. they change the way your skin produces melanin, cause long term cancers other than those of the skin & also cause skin cancer cells to more easily develop. Suki recommends getting at least ten minutes of screen-free sun per day except for between 11am to 2pm. Vitamin D deficiency diseases are running rampant in our culture so we truly need the sun’s rays for our good health. Suki also recommends taking whole food multivitamins with Vitamin D3 (the natural form) & eating foods high in this vitamin (not dairy, but things like mushrooms, wild salmon, tuna, sardines & eggs). Keep in mind that these foods can never replace the vitamin d that the sun provides. Suki also highly suggests screening for this vitamin on your next checkup. Being deficient in Vitamin D is no day at the beach. If you must wear a sunscreen, as is the case when at the beach for extended periods of time, use 100% natural bases with only the oxides used as sunscreen agents.
The Sukicolor tinted active moisturizer has a natural broad-spectrum sunscreen equivalent to SPF 15. Additionally, their tinted active moisturizers use adequate percentages of stable, high potency vitamin c, shea butter & white willow bark salicins at 15% that help prevent sun damage, repair sun spots & decrease the likelihood of sunburn.
Do you have a makeup remover?
Yes! Remove eye makeup by using Suki balancing or nourishing pure facial moisture, depending on your skin type. Put a few drops onto a 100% organic cotton ball and follow with your normal cleansing, toning and moisturizing routine. Remember most commercial makeup removers are made of synthetic chemicals, water, fragrance and preservatives. Why bother? Use something nourishing, healthful and effective. for heavy face makeup follow with a mist of toner on an organic cotton ball. follow as above.
What is the shelf life of your products?
Suki products last for two years after purchase unopened and one year after opening.
Are your products Gluten and Soy Free?
Yes totally! Suki Vitamin E (tochopherol) is derived from soy & is allergen free. We use rice and oat but these are refined ingredients without gluten as well.
Why do products like Toner and the Facial Lift Ultimate Firming Cream sometimes vary in color?
Suki uses truly botanicals in high percentages and due to natural crop variation, season and location of harvest, colors can vary. They refuse to use any synthetic dyes, lake or FD&C additives to cover up any color variations within their formulations. Their Facial Lift Ultimate Firming Cream is the most nutrient packed cream they make therefore it is the most densely colored cream.
Do you use Nanotechnology?
No. All of Suki's ingredient particles are over one micron, which means that they will not be able to pass into the bloodstream. Their products are pure and safe yet results driven.
Are all of your products certified organic?
All Suki products are 100% natural and free of any synthetic ingredients, parabens, lake, FD&C or coal tar colors, preservatives, genetically modified organisms, and nano-particles.
They are certification-free. Every month it seems, new associations are born that offer their organic certification logo for display on packaging for a fee. Each logo differs in the percentage of organic content and more importantly, the amount of allowable synthetics in their “acceptable” list. as companies that wish to call themselves “natural” hunt for a certification body that will help them market their products, logos appear more frequently and as a result, more & more emphasis is being placed on certification.
The trouble with the multitudes of seals is that they lull consumers into a false sense of safety making them feel as if they don't have to read labels! consider the fact that skin care companies and big conglomerates created tailor-made certifications knowing that newly conscientious consumers have learned to look for seals. “Hey it’s got that organic / natural seal – it must be safe!” but does anyone really know what that seal stands for?
Recently an executive at Suki learned an interesting lesson about organic certification while researching her favorite brand of organic baby carrots. she found that although the label did not state it, the carrots she was eating had been sprayed with chlorine. upon confronting the carrot company about the chlorine, they replied, "this is the allowable tolerance for chlorine permitted by the USDA in order to be able to make label claims. same as in your drinking water." It is their right and responsibility as consumers to read, question, & make informed choices about the products on and in our bodies.
Can I use Suki while pregnant?
Yes. All Suki products are completely safe for pregnant women, nursing moms and babies! Even though their products are clinically proven, effective and results driven, they are formulated from synthetic-free.
How often should I use the serums? Can they be mixed together?
For maximum benefits, serums should be applied both morning & night while skin is still moist from toning but before moisturizing. It is perfectly safe to use more than one serum at a time; simply use two drops of each, mix together and apply to the face and décolleté. Apply your favorite Suki moisturizer while your skin is still moist from the serum. Their serums are not moisturizers, rather, they are optimal delivery systems for high potency cosmeceuticals.
I just started using Suki and now I am breaking out. Is this normal?
About Suki Skincare
Yes. It is perfectly normal to go through a temporary detox, transitional period when switching over to a 100% synthetic-free skincare. This necessary detoxification period will deeply cleanse your skin and eliminate toxins from synthetic filled medications or other skincare regimens. This period is important because it will bring milia to the surface and eliminate them from the skin instead of creating long term bumps that will never go away. The transitional period can last a month or longer and varies depending on how long you were on a synthetic regimen. If it does last longer you may be using incorrect products or the regimen in the wrong way.
