Q

Can you describe the 1'Lux Beauty ethos?

A

We don't often give more than a passing thought to body beauty care. We make skincare for body + lips because good skin is the bedrock for beauty and health. One lux represents the base unit (SI) of illumination: use 1'Lux products as the building blocks of your beauty routine for luminescent skin and lips. 1'Lux Beauty is a Canadian brand: our definition of good bodycare encompasses not only helping skin survive, but also thrive in harsh weather conditions. Our desire for the unicorn of bodycare goods- beautifully packaged, luxurious, clean ingredients, generously sized, and easily incorporated into our daily beauty routine- led to the creation of a simple collection of intensely nourishing, thoughtful bath and bodycare for you. 


Q

Who is 1'lux beauty for?

A

We employed a gender-neutral aesthetic and fragrance when creating 1'Lux Beauty. Women, men, everybody really, can use our products!


Q

Are your products cruelty-free?

A

Yes! Not only are our products certified cruelty-free under PETA, we are also actively working toward our Leaping Bunny Certification. Our manufacturer and suppliers are committed to ethical, traceable and sustainable ingredient sourcing and production with zero testing of ingredients and final products on animals.


Q

Are your products vegan?

A

With the exception of our lip care collection, yes!


Q

Do your products have an expiration date?

A

We recommend using the products within 18 months once they've been opened. Beauty products should always be stored in a cool, dry environment to preserve all their goodness.


Q

Where are your products made?

A

We have an excellent partnership with a lovely North American manufacturer that is FDA-registered and GMP-certified. Our chemists source organic and natural ingredients first, for natural beauty you can feel good about.


Q

Are you compliant with Health Canada Cosmetics Regulation?

A

Our personal care products (exempting our dry brush) are considered Cosmetics in Canada and are registered accordingly with Health Canada. Transparency and compliance in beauty are very important to us at 1'Lux Beauty. All of our products have been independently and thoroughly vetted by a third-party to ensure our ingredients are safe for your health. 


Q

Why are natural beauty products so important?

A

Many of our current beauty products are filled with dangerous chemicals. From alcohol-based ingredients that dry and damage skin and hair to petroleum-based products that are known to be carcinogenic, the average beauty products are the equivalent of fast food - cheap and toxic.Natural products, made from plant-based ingredients are made to nourish skin and hair, rather than damage it.  Our skin is a living, breathing, and large! organ that needs good ingredients for optimal function. 


Q

Tell me more about your definition of natural.

A

We use plant-, flower-, and fruit-based botanicals, butters and oils first in our products before using what we consider to be safe synthetics. That means you'll commonly find ingredients like camellia and jojoba oil, avocado and shea butter, and hydrating aloe gelée in our products. That also means that you'll never find silicone, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic colours, PEGs, sulfates, and cheap fillers. If you ever have a question, send us an email at [here]


Q

Is your packaging recyclable?

A

We are so glad you asked. Please do reuse or recycle all components of empty 1'Lux Beauty containers! We try to minimize the use of secondary product packaging in order to reduce waste. Our shipping materials are comprised of 100% plastic-free packaging so please do recycle it all (or reuse for gift giving or storage).


Q

How do you pronounce pthalate?

A

We had to look it up. It's eff-tha-layts.
