If there is anything you would like to know about eléni and its products feel free to contact us. However, some questions we are regularly asked are answered below.
I have a nut allergy, are eléni products suitable for me to use?
eléni was created by the South African skin specialist Piet Meyer. Many years ago he created Exorex, a product line designed specifically for psoriasis sufferers. He therefore understands the need to ensure eléni skincare products are as gentle as possible for all skin types.
However, given that everyone is very different when it comes to tolerance to various ingredients, it is impossible to guarantee that any one person will not have a sensitivity or allergy to any skincare products.
eléni Skincare has avoided using any ingredients derived from nuts that are commonly associated with nut allergies, including Almond Bitter, Almond Sweet, Macadamia Nut, Peanut, Walnut and Brazil Nut. However, eléni does include for example Shea Butter as an ingredient which is derived from the seed of the fruit of the Shea Tree. Other similar ingredients included in eléni are Coconut Oil, Argan Oil and Apricot Kernel Seed.
It is for this reason that all ingredients are made available on our website so as to ensure that those wishing to use eléni can put their mind at rest knowing exactly which ingredients are in our products and compare this with their known list of potential allergens as supplied by their physician prior to use. If you have any problem accessing this on our website, please let us know and we will provide the relevant information directly to you.
We would always recommend that if in doubt please check with your medical doctor and do a patch test before use.
