how natural are your products?
over 95 percent. the rest are plant identical ingredients (such as our vitamin c) or naturally certified preservatives.
i've heard oils are condogemic - is your product going to clog my pores?
most oils are condogemic. however, the formulation and the quality of the ingredients used are the important factors in how the oil functions. that's why we choose only the best ingredients and work with highly skilled formulators to produce products that are formulated for your skin, that dont clog your pores. for example, our coconut oil is high quality and organic.
your product has a scent but you say it is fragrance free?
we use no artificial fragrances as these are used for smell only and have no benefits for the skin. we use ingredients with natural scents that also have benefits for your skin.

all our products have a 2 year shelf life. They should be used within 6 months of opening. please keep out of direct sunlight.
your product should last about 6-8 weeks with regular use. you should see results within 4 weeks (however, pigmentation can be a longer process).
how are your ingredients sourced and are they organic?
some of our ingredients are organic. the majority of our ingredients are certified to international standards. all our products are vegan and cruelty free.
a lot of our oils and other natural ingredients are from africa, but ingredients like hyaluronic acid are from abroad.
all ingredients are high quality and traceable back to the farmer.
do you use essential oils?
we use high quality essential oils in some of our products - but in quantities less than 0.25% total. this is well below recommended guidelines and safe.
you say your product is clean but some contain alcohols?
we use cosmos-certified alcohols derived from plants and in extremely small quantities (less than 0,25% of a product if used).
after applying your serum, squeeze a liberal amount onto your fingers, rub it in, and take in that natural glow. if you have very dry skin we recommend using the crème de la cream or the du-pont moisturisers before adding this product.

cleaner colada | coconut + pineapple african oil cleanser.
I love this product so much! The packaging is beautiful and non-gendered as is the smell (which is faint and lovely). It gets rid of oil, spf and make up making it the perfect first cleanse for me.
Perfect for removing oil and sunscreen. Love the smooth and refreshing feeling after using this cleanser.
A fantastic product. Besides the gorgeous packaging, the consistency of the cleanser and the smell, this is a fabulous way to cleanse - doesn't feel like it's stripping my skin, yet it feels clean and robust after using. Will definitely keep using this.
Absolutely delicious. Gentle yet thorough on my sensitive, dry skin. Great at removing impurities & make-up. Love it!
Packaging: Love the clean, neutral aesthetics. Not to mention the reusable box and the SQ codes to learn more about the product and about Amanda. The bottle itself is so appealing and definitely has a luxurious finesse. From the colour of the bottle to the non-complicated, straight to the point text, I love everything about it.
The Product: I am a huge fan of coconut oil as I have a dry skin type. The consistency of the cleanser spreads well and leaves my face feeling so soft. I only need one pump for full face coverage which makes the product economically sustainable. I have been using the oil cleanser for two weeks and my skin feels alive again. I don't wear makeup every day but when I do, I can count on the product to take all the makeup off, leaving my skin feeling clean and smooth.
Thanks you Lelive! You guys are doing an incredible job and I can't wait to try out more of your products.
