1. How long should I use it before I see a difference?

The number of days in which you see a difference on your skin varies from person to person, as our skin is unique. We have had customers who used our Acne control creme for 1-3 months and they’ve never gone back to whatever they were using before. We would urge you to use it consistently and for a longer duration to see visible results. Especially with Acne, you want to ensure your food choices and lifestyle is mindful and healthy. 

2. Will it worsen my acne breakouts in the beginning?

You may experience a few initial bouts of acne when using the crème, this is absolutely normal. What you are experiencing is called ‘Purging’, which means your skin is reacting to an active ingredient, which is increasing skin cell growth. This is a good sign – it means your skin will soon start shedding dead skin cells and eventually reveal fresh, healthy skin.

3. Does this work on acne scars?

Our Acne Control creme is perfect for acne scars as it is vitalised with Palmarosa essential oil, which is cytophylactic, which means it is capable of promoting cell growth. Naturally antifungal and antibacterial, it ensures healing of acne, blemishes, minor cuts and bruises. It’s light and non-sticky so it sinks into your skin beautifully.

4. I am 50+ and still have acne. Should I use this or an anti ageing product?

Adult acne is very common and nothing to worry about. Our bodies and hormones change and that leads to acne. If you have active acne (which means acne appearing multiples times a month), please use our Acne control creme first and once they are settles you can start introducing our Age-defying creme. 

5. I have oily skin and acne too. Which face crème will suit me?

Our Acne control creme works wonders for balancing excess oils on the skin, while calming and settling acne bumps. This will be a perfect buy for you!

6. Is this non comedogenic?

Yes, the oils used in this formulation are non-comedogenic so it will not block your pores. 

7. Is it a night cream or a day cream?

Our Face Creme’s can be used both day and night and although it depends on Individual preference we would suggest to use it twice a day to see visible results.

8. Can I use sunscreen after using this?

None of our formulations contain SPF so it can’t replace a sunscreen but if you are using one we would suggest you to continue your routine while incorporating our Acne Control Creme in it. It is a blend of natural oils and therapeutic grade essential oils which help maintain your skin barrier.

9. Can I use this with actives? 

Actives can be a very easy choice when dealing with acne and why not, it does give almost instant results. However, in the long run they sensitize your skin, weaken the skin barrier and lead to other skin issues. Oils, on the other hand, may take a while to show results with acne, but they do work and remove the problem from its core. If you still wish to add actives to your skincare, you must use our Acne control creme, to ensure your skin gets all the nourishment from natural oils that it needs.

10. Is it as effective as salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide?

Actives like Salicylic acid and Benzoyl peroxide can be a very easy choice when dealing with acne and why not, it does give almost instant results. However, in the long run they sensitize your skin, weaken the skin barrier and lead to other skin issues. Oils, on the other hand, may take a while to show results with acne, but they do work and remove the problem from its core. So, YES it is not just effective but also a safer choice.

11. Why is it so expensive?

Oleum Cottage formulations are made with the best quality of oils and essential oils to give you the highest efficacy. Interestingly, many who initially think they’re expensive, change their mind after trying them. Most people who try it feel it is a good investment and switching to Oleum Cottage saves them the salon/treatment costs!

12. Will this suit my sensitive skin?

A slight tingling sensation is normal in the initial stage and is a sign that your skin is in its sensitive form and will heal overtime. The oil blends used in our formulations are light and non comedogenic and hence suitable for sensitive skin.
