FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
DO YOU USE NANOTECHNOLOGY?
No. all of our ingredient particles are over one micron, which means that they will not be able to pass into the bloodstream. our products are pure & safe yet results driven. want to know more about nanotechnology in your personal care products & why I'm Fabulous® does not use it? click here to check out this article from the Environmental Working Group!
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS CERTIFIED ORGANIC?
I'm Fabulous® sources the highest quality ingredients for the integrity of our formulations. We are in relationship with our vendors and their particular growing methods, practices, and systems. We support sustainable practices whenever possible and we are proud to have over 160 of our certified organic active ingredients grown and harvested locally in United States.
We 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 &, 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, & 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 & big conglomerates created tailor-made certifications knowing that newly conscientious consumers have learned to look for seals..
It is our right & responsibility as consumers to read, question, & make informed choices about the products we put on & in our bodies. Our direction to you –read labels.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF YOUR PRODUCTS?
Our products last for two years after purchase unopened & one year after opening.
DO YOU HAVE SUNSCREEN?
we first recommend using uv protective clothing to shield yourself from the sun – a great brand is solumbra. Please use caution when using sunscreens.
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. We recommend 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. We also recommend 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).
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.
Our mineral foundation are SPF 15.

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 & apply to the face & décolleté.
Apply your favorite I'm Fabulous® moisturizer while your skin is still moist from the serum. Our serums are not moisturizers, rather, they are optimal delivery systems for high potency cosmeceuticals.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I EXFOLIATE?
You should decide how often to exfoliate based on your skin type. If you have very sensitive thin skin you should only exfoliate two to three times a week. If your skin is not sensitive than you can exfoliate up to once per day. We always encourage using your intuition with skin & body care. Exfoliate more or less depending on what feels good to you & makes you look great! Do not exfoliate if you have rosacea or hyper-pigmentation with dry tendencies.
DO YOU GIVE FREE SAMPLES?
Yes we offer free samples with every order! We do not offer samples on peels.
