Why have Organic Surge stopped making hair products?
As part of our ongoing and deep commitment to our Organic and Eco credentials, we have discontinued our Hair Care lines until we could create a range which was not only effective and beautifully fragrant but also vegan and most importantly; Certified Organic. We came close with our award winning Hair Care made with over 98% natural ingredients but not close enough for that coveted Organic Certification. We know Hair Care will be sorely missed; please rest assured we will do everything we can to bring the most organic and ethical products to market; so watch this space!
How Natural Are Your Products?
Our products contain a minimum of 98% naturally derived ingredients. Actual levels are clearly identified on each product page.
Are Your Products Bio Degradable?
Yes, all of our products are biodegradable.
Do Your Products Contain Gluten?
All of our Organic Surge products are wheat/gluten free.
Do Your Products Contain Palm Oil?
Our products do not contain palm oil itself but some products contain ingredients which are derived from palm oil. The sources of these ingredients vary but we buy only from suppliers who are signed up to the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
Is Your Packaging Recyclable?
Yes – we use materials that can be recycled, and we don’t use more packaging than is needed. Any restrictions on what can be recycled will be determined by your local authority’s facilities.
Do You Test Your Products On Animals?
We absolutely do not and our manufacturing partners do not. For more information on our no animal testing policy, please click here.
Are Your Products Suitable For Vegetarians And Vegans?
Yes. All of our products are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Are Your Products Suitable For Sensitive Skin?
Our facial skincare products have all been clinically and dermatologically tested on a panel of people with sensitive skin, and have produced no reactions. The test house have confirmed that our products can claim to be suitable for sensitive skin.
In addition to this, and following some wonderful feedback from customers, we have put our Lavender Meadow products through clinical testing which has proven them to be suitable for use on eczema prone skin.
As a common sense precaution, and because everybody’s skin is different, we recommend that you carry out your own patch test prior to first application.
Are Your Products Suitable For Babies And Children?
Our products may be used on children over two years old. For under 2’s we would recommend that you use products which have been specifically formulated for this age group as infant’s skin is five times thinner than adult skin. This is not yet one of our areas of expertise.
Are Your Products Suitable For Use During Pregnancy?
Organic Surge products are very mild and are designed for everyday use. Essential oils are considered safe for use during pregnancy, subject to normal use, no known complications in pregnancy and no known allergies. However, as usual during this sensitive time, please consult your doctor for definitive recommendations.
What is the Shelf Life of Organic Surge Products?
Our products have a 3 year shelf life. Our latest packaging will show an expiry or best before date. We follow the EU labelling requirements that are for a BBE date to be shown on pack for any product with a shelf life less than 30 months, and a period after opening symbol for any product with shelf life in excess of 30 months.
