Do You Have a Facial Moisturizer to go with the Face Oil?
Our SOCO Symphony and Symphony Men organic face oil blends are our moisturizers. We don’t sell cream, because cream contains waxes, fillers and preservatives that are harmful for the skin. Our face oil is formulated to be a complete moisturizer so you don’t need any other layers.
Why do You Only Have Just a Few Skin Care Products?
We believe in restoring your skin’s health with powerful, anti-aging nutrients at a super high concentrated level. We don’t water down our products and then try to sell you a system of 5 different layers. No, we put all the vitamins and nutrients into fewer products, so you can experience luxurious, effective, nutritionally potent skin care in fewer steps.
What is SOCO Botanicals return policy?
We offer 30 day money back guarantee. We also offer free shipping one way for orders over $30, so your only risk is that you pay for return shipping to send products back to us.
Are Your Skin Care Products Nontoxic?
Yes, all of our ingredients are nontoxic, phthalate free, paraben free, and free of all questionable ingredients that have been linked to cancer and other health problems. Parabens are chemical preservatives that are estrogenic and disruptive hormone function. Estrogenic chemicals mimic naturally occurring hormone estrogen, and exposure to external estrogens has been shown to increase the risk of breast cancer. Parabens are preservatives that are known to disrupt hormones, harm fertility and reproductive organs, increase the risk of cancer and cause skin irritation. We thoroughly research our ingredients for safety, efficacy and also use high integrity sources.
Where is SOCO Botanicals Made?
SOCO Botanicals is made right here in Texas, in an FDA approved manufacturing facility. We have our own product development team and own all of our unique formulas. No other company sells our products under a different brand name - they are exclusively SOCO Botanicals skin care products.
Will Your Skin Care Product Line Help My Sunspots and Hyperpigmentation?
We do not make any specific claims as to individual results, or how long it takes to get results, because results vary from person to person. SOCO Symphony Anti Aging Elixir Oil is sold as an all in one super nutrient moisturizer, not a skin lightening product. However, there are several ingredients in our SOCO Symphony & Symphony Men that have been studied and have shown to disperse melanin in the skin and help to make skin tone appear more even. Here are a few ingredients that have promising clinical results: 1. Red Raspberry Seed Oil: This oil has high natural sun protection of 28-50 SPF. Red Raspberry Seed Oil also is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, which protect the skin from damage at the cellular level. 2. Pomegranate Seed Oil: Pomegranate contains ellagic acid, a polyphenol found in pomegranates, which in clinical studies has shown to have skin lightening properties comparable to hydroquinone, reducing sun spots effectively. It also has been clinically proven to inhibit the growth of skin tumors. 3. Coenzyme Q10: The International Journal of Cosmetic Science published a study recently that showed that CoQ10 helped to reduce melasma and hyperpigmentation. Researchers found that CoQ10 could reduce melanin content in skin cells, so it could potentially be used to reduce skin discoloration due to sun exposure. Topical CoQ10 is quickly absorbed right into the skin where the sun spots need it the most.
Does SOCO Botanicals Test on Animals?
SOCO Botanicals is a cruelty free beauty company, has never and will never test on animals. We do not purchase ingredients that have been tested on animals either.
Is SOCO Botanicals Vegan and Gluten Free?
SOCO Botanicals is both vegan gluten free, with the exception of the lip balms which contain organic beeswax. Beeswax is considered to be vegetarian but not vegan.
Is It Ok to Use an Exfoliator On My Face Every Day?
SOCO Black Lava Scrub is an activated charcoal facial exfoliant, with a creamy, hydrating texture. It is safe to exfoliate daily, but we believe 4 times a week is enough exfoliation, unless you have a specific problem like acne or rough patches, in which it would help to use it daily.
Do Face Oils Cause Pimples?
All of the oils in our products are non-comedogenic, meaning that they absorb and do not clog pores. Creams contain emulsifying waxes, fillers, gums and preservatives that can clog pores, so that is one of the benefits of switching to an oil based moisturizer- most people report clearer skin and smaller pores in just a few weeks.
Should I Keep Using My Vitamin C Serum?
Sea Buckthorn Oil and Rosehip Oil are very high in Vitamin C, so if you are using our Symphony Anti Aging Elixir Oil or Symphony Men face oil, you do not need to keep using a gel based Vitamin C serum. In addition, those gel based products are another layer that can clog your pores, which we do not recommend.
Does Your Face Oil Help With Wrinkles Around The Eyes?
Yes, SOCO Symphony Anti Aging Oil is effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face and around the eyes, and it is effective and gentle enough to replace your eye cream.
Can You Apply Makeup After Using The Face Oil?
Many of our female customers report that the Symphony face oil helps to help makeup go on more smoothly. Other customers report that they wear less makeup as their skin tone and texture is improved. I am a fan of a fresh clean skin look, which appears more glowing and healthy, so our goal is to help your skin improve and lessen the need for makeup.
Can I Use The Face Oil With My Other Face Cream?
No other layers, eye cream, day cream, night cream, serum or any other gels or spray toners are necessary when you use SOCO Symphony or Symphony Men. Our Symphony serum oil is a complete moisturizer in one bottle. However, it is not going to hurt you skin to use our Symphony as a serum oil under another face cream, and some people use it this way.
What is the difference between the men’s Symphony and the regular Symphony?
The Symphony blend is exactly the same, except for the essential oils in it. SOCO Symphony features essential oils for beauty: Neroli, Helichrysum, and Ylang Ylang, which have floral notes. Symphony Men contains essential oils of Frankincense and Sandalwood, which also are amazing for skin, but have a more masculine scent.
