Now, if irritation occurs with a product please review the following to make sure you have not participated in any of these actions.
Diet - Too much sugar, gluten, and dairy may cause breakouts or flare-ups within the skin.
Too Many Products - Incorporating too many new products in a routine should not be encouraged, instead, try utilizing one new product each month to stay on top of any irritation. Give your skin's cell turnover a proper full cycle to adapt.
Allergy - Unknown allergy within ingredients. Always patch test products before use and check each ingredient list on each individual product page on our site or found listed on all bottles/jars. If burning, or itching occurs, stop usage. Slight tingling is normal for some ingredients.
Application - When and how formulas are applied make all the difference, such as not rinsing off a cleanser fully or using a Vitamin A during the day. Always review how you apply your products and in what particular order you use them.

Avoid usage when pregnant or nursing, and always contact your physician should you have any questions.
