I would like to do a PATCH TEST on my skin. Can I get a sample?

Yes, of course, we will be pleased to send out a FREE sample, as it is very important that any clinical advice is followed, where they recommend to do a patch test on skin before applying a new product.

Everybody’s skin is unique and we would recommend you start with the Sunflower Body Lotion or Hand Cream – fragrance free, especially if you have sensitive skin, are receiving medical treatment or taking strong medication. Both the fragrance free and the Lavender versions are a gentle, water-based formulas with 5% sunflower oil.  Click on the link for the full ingredients. https://mytrustyskincare.co.uk/product/body-lotion-fragrance-free-250ml/

Has The Formula Changed At All?

YES, in February 2017.  But don’t worry – it’s better!

We listened to our customers and retailers which led us to improve the preservative within our sunflower formula, and make our packaging clearer.  If you have any known allergies, please do check the product ingredients list carefully.

So what’s changed?

  • The NEW and improved Sunflower Cream formula is now without SLS (sodium laurel sulphate) – the emulsifier that enables the sunflower oil to mix with the water.  Although vegetable derived, this emulsifier has received unfavourable press in past years , so we have replaced it with Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate and Ceteryl Glucoside, which are much nicer and seen as a more natural alternative.
  • The 250ml bottles of Sunflower Cream have been renamed as Sunflower Body Lotion …. because that’s exactly where is goes – on the Body, Face or Hands. And, our fresh sunflower packaging would look lovely in your bathroom, or even by the sink!
  • The 100ml tubes of Sunflower Cream have also been re-named because they are just a perfect ‘handy’ size for busy people on the go. Our hand creams and body lotions are the same formulas – just different sizes, so you can keep your skin moisturised, wherever you are.
  • We have also replaced the existing preservative, with Potassium Sorbate, and Benzyl Alcohol – both of which are fully acceptable to the Natural & Organic Standards.

And finally ….

  • All products have an easy to understand colour banding to help recognise them, with or without fragrances.
  • Sunflower Yellow – is fragrance free.
  • Purple – is lavender fragrance
  • Orange – is neroli, bergamot and orange fragrance
  • Pink- is neroli, bergamot and rosemary fragrance

My Trusty complies with the new cosmetic regulation EC-1223/2009 ‘recast’ became active on 1 January 2012 and was fully in place by 11 July 2013.

I have ROSACEA - Which products are recommended?

We have had so many customers ask this question, and although everybody’s skin is different,  a lot of them write back to tell us how effective our Face & Body oil was for them.

Sunflower Seed Oil

Sunflower seed oil is very effective in stimulating the skin’s natural healing ability. It is high in linoleic acid and has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is non-sensitising, is non-greasy and absorbs easily and quickly into the skin, and will not block the block the pores, which can cause blackheads or pimples.  It is the safest of all the vegetable oils safe for moisturizing the skin.  Essential oils for rosacea are a promising new treatment method, in addition to laser and other complex skin rejuvenation options.

Our Sunflower Face & Body oil – 50ml has the highest content of Sunflower oil across all our product (10%), and is infused with essential oils of neroli, bergamot and rose, making it a really lovely moisturiser to apply to the face and body.  It is very safe, and suitable for all ages including babies over the age of 8 weeks.

The unique formulas of ALL our products are based around natural sunflower oil, because of the benefits linoleic acid has on our skin.  Our other products are very effective too.  The Sunflower Body Lotion or Hand creams have 5% sunflower oil in them.  The Sunflower Body Butter, is much thicker/richer, and has a 6.5% sunflower oil content.  https://mytrustyskincare.co.uk/product/face-body-oil-with-neroli-bergamot-rosemary-50ml/

We hope this has helped.  If you would like a sample to try, please contact us with your details and we will send one out to you.

My Trusty Body Lotion - Pump Queries

Safety Clip:Ensure you have removed the clear plastic safety clip from the neck of the pump before use.  Handy Tip:  rather than throw away, re-sue the safety clip when travelling to prevent any leakage.

Dispensing Difficulties?  Due to the viscosity of the lotion, we recommend  that our users tap the base of the bottle onto a hard surface to shake the remaining contents to the base.  This will enable the contents to continue to be dispensed.
