FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Kirra skincare products are made in the Hunter Valley, Australia – one of the least polluted continents in the world. Our entire manufacturing process is carried out in Australia, encompassing the full production lifecycle, from formulation design and development through to manufacture, ﬁlling, packing and distribution.
Yes, we use natural and certified organic, paraben-free preservatives which have been proven to adequately extend your product's shelf life without the high irritant possibility of some synthetic preservatives.
Every Kirra product comes with its own unique batch number and expiry date. Please also check the ‘Use After Opening’ symbol (the little pot with a lid) to find out how many months after opening the product should be used by.
Because all Kirra products are natural and have their shelf-life extended by natural preservatives these need to be stored in a dark, cool place under 30 degrees C. In the hot summer months, we recommend storing your Kirra water-based products such as creams, serums, masks, cleansers and toners in an air-conditioned area or refrigerator. Kirra balms and deodorants should also be stored under 30 degrees C to avoid melting. Never leave in places such as hot cars, in direct sunlight or on hot surfaces.
Yes, we pride ourselves on being truly natural and are honest to our customers. The only products we stock that are not 100% natural are our Hand Sanitisers. In the future, we aim to provide a more natural solution for our Hand Sanitisers.
No derived mineral oils, no genetically changed components, no artificial dyes, no artificial fragrance, no pesticides or herbicides, no parabens (synthetic preservatives), no petrochemical, no sodium lauryl/laureth sulfates (no SLS), no harmful chemical components, no nano-particles.
The scent and colour of Kirra products may vary as we use only 100% natural ingredients which can vary from batch to batch. Natural colour and essential oils also tend to fade over time or when exposed to sunlight.
Yes, some Kirra products are suitable while pregnant, please click and view Shop > Featured > Pregnancy Safe.
While some essential oils are considered safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding at a low dosage, we recommend avoiding products which contain any essential oils under these circumstances. Because you (and your little one) are potentially very sensitive during this stage of life, it is also best to patch test any new products before use. Take caution while handling infants, babies, and children after applying skincare on your own skin. Extra care should be taken when breastfeeding to ensure no products are ingested by infants.
Yes, if in doubt, patch test the product. Always check our readily available ingredient lists on our website or on our products to make sure to avoid known personal allergens and carefully follow product directions. If a reaction occurs, immediately rinse, discontinue use, and seek medical advice if needed. Kirra is not liable for any individual reactions to any ingredient.

Kirra does not use any synthetic / artificial fragrances. We instead use very low percentages of essential oils and essential oil blends. For our unscented products, the aroma comes from the natural ingredients such as the carrier oils or butters, and so on which have their own aroma.
Yes, most of our products are Gluten Free. Some products contain Colloidal Oatmeal, please check our readily available ingredient lists online or on our products for any personal allergens.
Cetearyl Alcohol is a “good” alcohol which is actually a wax derived naturally from coconut fatty acids. Unlike Ethanol (a “bad’ alcohol in skincare which can cause severe drying of the skin), Cetearyl Alcohol is used to moisturise the skin and enhances product texture without irritation.
