Is there a benefit in using Certified Organic products?

People are awakening to the benefit of using certified organic skincare due to the harmful chemicals in their products and the effect it has on our bodies and the environment.

KORA Organics is so much more than “clean beauty”—we’re Certified Organic Beauty. What you put on your skin soaks directly into your bloodstream... so why wouldn’t you choose to use organic? KORA Organics products are toxin-free, cruelty-free and formulated with highly-active, Certified Organic ingredients that deliver powerful results leaving your skin healthy, glowing and radiant.

What is the difference between Certified Organic and Organic

KORA Organics is so much more than “clean beauty”—we’re Certified Organic Beauty.

There are so many buzz words thrown around daily regarding skincare, beauty and household products, and with KORA Organics—you know what you are getting and putting on YOUR skin. KORA Organics is certified organic and natural in accordance with COSMOS, a global certifying agency that follows strict organic guidelines and regulations around ingredients and the manufacturing process.
 
Simply because a product says it is “natural” or “organic” it can still have many harmful ingredients mixed in or ingredients that can turn into formaldehyde causing agents.

Is it true that all skincare has to contain some form of preservative?

Any "cream-based" product needs to contain a preservative to be safe. KORA Organics only uses preservatives that are approved by COSMOS. KORA Organics is committed to ensuring the finest quality ingredients throughout the range.

Why do your products have an expiration date?

All skin and body care products are required by law to have an expiration date. This ensures that a product will uphold its integrity, quality, performance and be safe for consumer use within a given period of time.

Our products have a 2-year expiration date from the date of manufacture and a 6-month period of use, once opened within this 2-year date.

KORA Organics does not use any harmful or controversial preservatives, often used to extend the shelf life of cosmetic products. We only use natural-based preservatives that are globally approved by COSMOS.

To ensure best quality of use, it is important to ensure your KORA Organics products are stored correctly—Keep it sealed when not in use, and out of direct heat & sunlight.

Is KORA Organics By Miranda Kerr just a company that Miranda puts her name and face to or does Miranda really use the KORA Organics products?

From the start Miranda has been and will continue to be involved in every facet of the business from financing through to formulation and marketing of our end products. KORA Organics Skincare is the only skincare Miranda now uses.

What makes KORA Organics products different to any other certified organic product?

KORA Organics products are designed to work holistically to nourish your MIND, BODY & SKIN. Feed your skin with products to help detoxify, nourish & revitalize. Feed your body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best and feed your mind with positive affirmations and self-love. Crafted by nature itself and coupled with the extensive knowledge and backing of certified organic chemists KORA Organics products contain natural and certified organic ingredients formulated in accordance with COSMOS and Ecocert's strict certification guidelines. The products are infused with antioxidant rich Noni (the only Certified Organic skincare in the world containing Noni Juice), Essential Fatty Acids, Herbal Extracts, Essential Oils, Vitamin A, C and E and many other highly rejuvenating and replenishing ingredients.

From the onset Miranda's one stipulation to the Organic Chemists helping formulate the luxurious KORA Organics range was that at all times KORA Organics products were to contain only the highest quality ingredients available—worldwide.

PRODUCTS

What type of exfoliant particles are used in KORA Organics products?

KORA Organics only uses naturally sourced, sustainable & environmentally-friendly exfoliants.

How is the DHA derived in the Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion?

The DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) ingredient used in our Gradual Self-Tanning Lotion is naturally derived from sugar. The molecules in sugar actually will turn brown in time, hence it delivers that naturally tanning effect. Due to its natural source, it is acceptable as a safe and non-toxic ingredient upon the skin.

Should I refrigerate KORA Organics Products?

There is no need in a normal climate to refrigerate KORA Organics products. If it is extremely hot and humid you may wish to do so. All of our products undergo what is known as Stability and P.E.T. testing to ensure they are safe for the consumer and can withstand high temperatures.

Are your products tested on animals?

KORA Organics products are never tested on animals and are cruelty free, and our packaging carries the P.E.T.A logo.

Do your products contain any animal components or by-products?

The majority of KORA Organics products are free of any animal components and/or by-products and they are in fact classified VEGAN. However, this excludes the Noni Glow Face Balm and Noni Glow Body Balm that contain beeswax. None of our products are tested on animals.

Essential Oils vs. Synthetic Fragrance—How and why does KORA Organics use essential oils?

KORA Organics only uses natural or organic essential oils to scent our products (NEVER artificial or synthetic fragrance), which follows our belief in presenting only the purest of skin and body care products. Historically, essential oils have been used for centuries to delicately fragrance the skin and have been the backbone of most natural or organic skin and body care products. We blend essential oils into our product not only from an aromatherapy standpoint—but mostly importantly—for their specific skin benefits. We use these oils at very minute levels, so as not to overpower the senses nor cause any irritation. Therefore, we do not need to include any synthetically derived fragrances whatsoever.

Can I use KORA Organics products with other non-certified organic products?

Does KORA Organics use Nuts in their products?

KORA Organics formulations do not contain any peanuts, almonds, walnuts, cashews or Brazil nut-based ingredients. A high percentage of “nut” allergies are based upon an intolerance of peanuts, which botanically are not a “nut” but a legume. However, many KORA products do contain Macadamia Seed, Coconut and Shea Butter, which are considered part of the tree nut family. These types of nut oils, typically, do not irritate people with nut allergies and tend to be low in risk. As always, we encourage customers who have serious allergies to consult a doctor/allergist or conduct a patch test before using any product.

PACKAGING

Does KORA Organics packaging contain Bisphenol and BPA?

KORA Organics packaging does not contain Bisphenol and BPA compounds. KORA Organics utilizes plastics that are either PP, PE or PET materials, which are food-grade and highly recyclable.

Is your packaging environmentally friendly?

Yes, KORA Organics strives to source products and packaging to be environmentally friendly, sustainable and recyclable. It adheres to all COSMOS/Ecocert strict certification requirements surrounding organic products.
