FAQs

What are the ingredients?
Sunflower oil, water, yellow beeswax, linseed oil, primrose oil, shea butter, rosehip oil, rosemary oil, lavender essential oil, peppermint essential oil, rose essential oil, tea tree essential oil, vanilla extract and green tea.

Why is there alcohol in the cream?
There could be up to 0.05% ethyl alcohol that remains after preparation. The alcohol in the cream is present because of the vanilla extract. Alcohol is used because it is the best carrier for its gentle aroma. I chose not to use alcohol-free vanilla extract due to its other added ingredients such as glycerol, used to carry the smell.I use vanilla extract in the cream because of the soothing effect it has on babies, children and adults. The vanilla extract is made with organic ethyl alcohol derived from grains. After preparation, 0.05% alcohol remains in the mixture.

What main allergens is Primrose free from?
Milk products, eggs, beans & legumes (including soy & peanuts), corn, shellfish.

Are there any artificial nasties in Primrose?
Nope. There aren’t any sulphates, parabens, phthalates, colorings or perfumes in the cream.

Who touched Primrose?
This cream is cruelty free and suitable for vegetarians. We don’t say vegans because the cream contains organic beeswax. It has not been clinically tested. I’ve been using it on myself, many consenting adults and teens, and my own toddlers for more than 1 year.

Why are there sometimes little clumps in the cream?
Primrose is made at home with lots of care. The ingredients are all natural, organic, and as unprocessed as possible. Texture may vary as a result. If clumps start forming in the cream, don’t worry; it’s the shea butter and beeswax. The clumps melt very quickly as they meet the skin!

How long does the cream stay good for?
Using only natural preservatives makes the cream very delicate. If kept at normal room temperature, in a spot away from sunlight, it stays fresh for a period of approximately 4 months after opening. Keeping it in the fridge will make it last a little longer.
