Frequently asked questions
WHAT DOES IT MEAN THAT COSAINT IS CHEMICAL FREE?
The ingredients in COSAINT products are all naturally-occurring and derived from premium, traceable sources. This also means that the list of ingredients used in our products are easily read and identified in the natural world. This means a product that is both safer for you and for the environment.
DOES THIS MEAN THAT COSAINT IS ORGANIC?
Organic is a term used in relation to food, to identify food that is free of chemical fertilisers, genetic-modification and additives such as preservatives and colourings. Increasingly, the term “organic” is being applied to skincare, though the definition for “organic” skincare is vague. At COSAINT we guarantee that our plant-based products all do not contain oxybenzones, parabens, fillers, artificial colourants and fragrances.
DO COSAINT PRODUCTS CONTAIN SYNTHETIC PRESERVATIVES?
No, COSAINT products are free of synthetic preservatives, fillers, colourants and fragrances as well as parabens and mineral oil. Therefore we place a use by date of three months on opening. Of course, like all sunscreens you shouls keep the container out of direct sunlight and heat as it will melt and things might get messy!
