Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the Gel Cleanser better than bar soap and water?
A gel cleanser clears skin of oil to help maintain a fresher complexion. It also helps remove dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. Our foaming Gel Cleanser does this better than a bar soap and is a mild yet effective alternative to bar soap. Bar soap alters and disrupts skin’s natural acid mantle causing artificial swelling of the surface. This disruption to the barrier further strips skin of natural moisture and increases propensity for bacterial proliferation and acne formation. Additionally, our Gel Cleanser is strategically formulated to maintain skin’s natural pH balance of 5.5, unlike bar soap. When you keep your skin appropriately pH-balanced, there is much less of a likelihood of it becoming too oily or too dry.

How can the Gel Cleanser also be a toner?
The 2-in-1 Gel Cleanser not only cleans the face, but also contains Zinc PCA to suppress oil production. It also leaves skin pH-balanced and rinses with no residue.

What’s the recommended order of use for these products?
In the morning, wash your face with the Gel Cleanser followed by the Light Lotion. This serves to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your face before you get started with your day. In the evening, wipe away your makeup with the Makeup Removing Wipes, then follow with the Gel Cleanser and Light Lotion.

What’s the difference between essentials by Artistry™ and Artistry Hydra-V™ products?
essentials by Artistry™ products are designed specifically for younger, oily skin types and are specially formulated to provide oil control benefits. Artistry Hydra-V™ products place an emphasis on hydration and are designed for all skin types.

Are essentials by Artistry™ products for a specific skin type?
essentials by Artistry™ products are designed to be compatible with all skin types; however, they were designed specifically for younger, more oily skin.

What should I do if I experience any skin sensation after applying the products?
The products have been thoroughly tested on individuals of all skin types, ranging from normal to sensitive. There was no evidence of allergic response or extreme skin irritation. However, we recognize that no testing program can guarantee that all individuals who use these products will not react. No skincare product is guaranteed to be 100% irritation-free for everyone. Each person’s tolerance for topical products and sensations is different.

Do any essentials by Artistry™ products contain sunscreen? If not, what is your recommendation?
Currently essentials by Artistry™ products do not contain SPF. We recommend using the Artistry Exact Fit™ BB Primer – SPF 35 or Artistry Ideal Radiance™ Illuminating CC Cream – SPF 50 to prevent skin exposure to damaging UV rays.

If I have a bad sunburn, can I use these products?
The Gel Cleanser and Light Lotion are gentle and mild, so usage with sunburn should be acceptable. We do not recommend using the Makeup Removing Wipes until inflammation has subsided.

Are essentials by Artistry™ products ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested?
All our products were dermatologist tested. The essentials by Artistry™ Gel Cleanser and Light Lotion do not carry any eye area claims, and therefore no ophthalmologist testing was required. You should not use the Light Lotion around the eye area. The Makeup Removing Wipes can be used around the eyes, so they were ophthalmologist tested.

Are essentials by Artistry™ products gluten-free?
Gluten was not deliberately added to the products.

Are any of the products paraben-free?
All products are synthetic colorant-free and free of phthalates. Some of the products do contain parabens as preservatives. These parabens are safe to use and are approved in all markets by the regulatory governing bodies. The cleanser is sulfate-free.

Are essentials by Artistry™ products organic?
No. The Acerola Cherry in the Gel Cleanser formula and the Light Lotion formula was grown on certified organic farms*, but due to processing for use in cosmetic products, they cannot be classified as organic.

Are the products oil-free?
Yes, for the most part. All formulas are non-comedogenic, which means they do not clog pores. While the fragrance does contain oil, we can still claim that the Gel Cleanser and Light Lotion formulas are oil-free. The Wipes are oil-free.

Were the products tested on animals?
None of the products were tested on animals.

Are there any animal-derived ingredients?
No. There are no animal-derived ingredients in these formulas.

How should the products be stored?
The products should be stored in cool, dry places to avoid accelerated aging.

How long do each of the essentials by Artistry™ skincare products last during use?
The expected usage rate for essentials by Artistry™ products is approximately 6-8 weeks.

Can I use the products when I’m pregnant?
Safety studies of cosmetics are not conducted on pregnant women. The patient and her doctor should discuss use of these or any other products.
