I have eczema. Which products should I use?
Eczema is a chronic inflammatory condition of the upper layers of the skin. The most common things that will trigger eczema are allergies, both food and environmental, as well as emotional and physical stress and climatic changes. The three main common features of eczema that distinguish it from other ailments are dry skin, sore rash and itchiness. For eczema sufferers, the A’Kin Unscented Range is highly recommended.
Do your products contain alcohol?
No, we do not use alcohol in any of the A’kin formulations. The reference to “alcohol” on our labels refers to the wax alcohols, behenyl alcohol (made from rapeseed oil) or cetearyl alcohol. Cetearyl alcohol is made from various vegetable oils such as palm and coconut. They bear little relation to common alcohol, which is a volatile liquid.
I am allergic to nuts. Do any of your products with the Healthy House range contain nut oil?
The following products contain small amounts of nut oils: The Unscented 24 hour Pure Moisturiser, the Unscented Body Lotion and the Unscented Intensive Hand Nail & Cuticle Treatment.
Can Coeliacs use A’kin shampoos and conditioners?
Coeliacs Disease (gluten-sensitive enteropathy) is a genetically based permanent intolerance to dietary gluten. The Coeliac Society of NSW have confirmed the external application of gluten (such as hydrolysed wheat protein used in A’kin hair care products) is not a concern for people diagnosed with coeliac disease as gluten must be ingested and reach the small bowel for problems to occur.
Do the A’kin products have an expiry date?
