Tameless Products

Do Tameless products contain Palm Oil?

No way, hozay! We wouldn’t like it if someone takes away our home and we feel the same way about our friends the orangutans in Indonesia, where Palm forests are being chopped down for the production of Palm oil. Where are these little guys to go?

Now that you know the truth you can be part of the change. Next time you buy any product, from skincare to biscuits, look at the ingredients list and if it contains palm oil don’t buy it. High five to Mr. Orangutan!

We use other alternative oils that are 100% natural. Go check out all our ingredients.

Are your products vegan friendly?

Vegan no, but Vegetarian yes. We only use beeswax in some of our products. You don’t have to worry though, we only source these ingredients from friendly honey bee farmers, that respect and love their little bee buddies as part of their own family.

Do Tameless products contain nuts?

Yes, some of our products do contain nut oils or nut derived ingredients. If you have a specific allergy, we ask that you please check the ingredients list on the label of each product or you can check it out on the individual product pages, here on our website.

Can I have an allergic reaction to a Tameless product?

Yes, just like people’s personalities are different, so are their skins. If any redness, itchiness, or other allergic reaction occurs, stop using the specific product immediately and consult medical advice. Although all our products are made from natural ingredients it is still possible to have an allergic reaction, exactly like hay-fever or lactose intolerance. We advise to patch test before making a purchase or applying to a large area of your body.

Do your products contain synthetic fragrances or artificial colours?

Nope. The scent of our products comes from pure essential oils and the colours are derived from other natural ingredients like ground plant materials and minerals. That’s why you’ll never see a Tameless product in a bright and unnatural colour.

Are Tameless products safe to use while pregnant? Are they safe for my baby?

We advise that you consult with your doctor before using any of our products while you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, although all our products are 100% natural, the high concentrations of certain essential oils could be overpowering for the delicate skin of your newborn child.

Why does my Tameless product look or smell a little different from the last batch?

Tameless products only contain natural ingredients. As with plants or fruits, there are seasonal differences because of external factors like weather pattern changes. So a slight difference in appearance or fragrance is totally normal for a natural product.

What is the best way of taking care of my Tameless products and extending the shelf life?

Natural products are more sensitive to light and heat, hence the use of stained glass for some of our products. But we also ask you to ensure that you close the lid tightly after each application. Products should be kept out of direct sunlight and under 25o C. For warmer climates, we recommend you keep your products in the fridge. Also, use clean hands to avoid contaminating your product with harmful bacteria.

Why use natural skincare products instead of the mainstream products?

Most commercially manufactured skincare products have been refined by chemical processes and are very far from their natural state. They contain harmful ingredients like sulphates, preservatives, dyes, parabens and much more that are absorbed by the skin.

Tameless products are truly natural in that they do not contain any of the harmful ingredients. We believe in keeping the ingredients of our products as close to its natural state as possible without adding any chemical additives.

Are Tameless products suitable for men?

Yes, all Tameless products are unisex.

What is the difference between a serum and a moisturiser?

Serums are oil-based, whereas moisturisers are water-based. Serums are usually a more concentrated formula of ‘active’ ingredients that can easily be absorbed into the skin. They are filled with antioxidants that deeply penetrate the skin to restore and repair.

Moisturisers, on the other hand, provides and locks in moisture into the skin, to leave it feeling fresh and hydrated for extended periods of time.

Do natural ingredients really work?

Of course! Natural ingredients have been the source of good health in both our diets and as topical remedies for the healing of damaged skin and wounds for centuries. Look at all the traditional healers that could cure most ailments with common herbs found in their regions. It’s only recently that we have become aware of the truths behind these methods and people are moving away from pharmaceutical treatments and opting for a natural alternative.

Why are you not certified organic?

We like to be absolutely transparent with you guys. We use many awesome all natural ingredients in our products that may or may not be organic due to our individual suppliers and us not being able to afford the certification at the moment. One day the whole world will catch up and organic will become the standard.

Are any of your products tested on animals?

Never ever! From ingredient sourcing to product distribution – none of our products are and will ever be tested on animals! All products first get tested on ourselves, then friends and family. And when everyone is satisfied with the results, do we make it available to our customers. So in a sense, we only do human testing 🙂

Where are Tameless products manufactured?

Proudly in South Africa of course, in Cape Town, the mother city.
