FAQs - Skin Types & Usage

Anything you want to know about different skin types, what are the best products for you, how to best use them, we've got you covered.

I have eczema / psoriasis, can I use Be Fraiche skincare?

Our products are irritant-free and don’t contain anything that may aggravate your eczema/psoriasis. In fact, we recommend the Seed Face Oil for its super-moisturising property and the Flower Face Cream, as it contains edelweiss extract, oatmeal extract and calendula extract, which are known to soothe skin inflammation and redness.

I have sensitive skin, can I use Be Fraîche skincare?

Yes, you can. Be Fraiche skincare is designed to be non-irritating because our founder, Helen, is also a sensitive belle.

We recommend starting with the Flower Face Cream as it contains amazing anti-inflammatory ingredients, plus antioxidants. Layer the Seed Face Oil at night under your cream for a moisture boost, if you have dry and sensitive skin. With the Bean Face Scrub, we recommend using it once or twice a week only (to avoid over-exfoliating your skin).

However, since everyone’s skin is different, we always recommend doing a batch test before first use (in the rare case that you are allergic to one of the ingredients we use!)

I have oily skin, what are the best products for me?

All of them. Oily skin also needs moisture so that the sebaceous glands don’t over-produce sebum. The key for oily skin care is balance and our range is tailored for this. Along with exfoliating with the Bean Face Scrub, and cleansing with the Tea Cleanser, you can choose either the Flower Face Cream or the Seed Face Oil as your daily moisturiser (or use them alternately). Your skin should feel amazing and less oily after a month or two of using our products!

I have dry skin, what are the best products for me?

Dry skin can greatly benefit from our Bean Face Scrub, Seed Face Oil and Flower Face Cream. Try layering our Seed Face Oil with the Flower Face Cream at night. They deeply moisturise, smooth out your fine lines, and replenish your skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Also, remember to remove those dry, dead skin cells twice a week with the Bean Face Scrub. Your natural radiance will shine through in no time.

I have acne, can I use Be Fraiche products?

Yes, you can. Keeping your skin clean and unclogged is key. Cleansing is important, but it has to be mild and gentle. Our Tea Cleanser is non-irritating, gentle, and can help clear out impurities. Once or twice a week, we recommend exfoliating with the Bean Face Scrub, which is extremely fine and nourishing. Last but not least, you can use either the Flower Face Cream, to soothe the redness, or the Seed Face Oil, to balance congested skin.

I have mature skin, what are the best products for me?

All of them! You’ll love the Bean Face Scrub which doubles as a scrub and a mask, as well as the Seed Face Oil, which contains only the best nourishing beauty oils. For optimal results, we recommend layering the Seed Face Oil underneath the Flower Face Cream at night.

I’m a teenager, what Be Fraiche products are suitable for me?

You’re in the right place, Belle. The earlier you start on natural skincare and antioxidants, the better for your skin. Our travel/starter set is a good place to start (and it won't hurt your wallet either!). Click here to give it a go.

I’m a guy, can I use Be Fraîche?

Of course - skincare doesn't discriminate! We recommend our Tea Cleanser and Seed Face Oil to start with. We plan to launch a men's range in the near future, so stay tuned!

I was told not to use foaming cleanser since I’m over 30, can I use your Tea Cleanser?

Yes, you can. Our Tea Cleanser is gentle and greatly benefits oily and combination skin types. Traditionally, foaming cleansers were created with harsh chemicals and sulfates (like SLSs, SLEs) that can irritate the skin. Our Tea Cleanser is different; we use ingredients that are naturally derived from corn and coconut oil to create the foam. Plus, the Tea Cleanser boasts lovely extracts like green tea, cucumber, aloe vera and pro-vitamin B5, to hydrate and soften your skin.

I have oily skin, can I use Seed Face Oil?

You definitely can! The reason our skin overproduces sebum is because it’s not hydrated enough, for various reasons (seasonal change, over washing, exfoliating, etc.). By using plant oils, we rejuvenate our skin with essential fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants that our skin has been craving, telling our sebaceous glands to relax!. We hand-picked jojoba and macadamia oils because they contain a similar molecular structure to our sebum. Plus, we meticulously calculated the absorption rate of each oil to make sure it absorbs into your skin quickly and deeply, leaving no oily residue but a soft and supple face.

My skin is not sensitive, but it seems the Flower Face Cream is made especially for sensitive skin, can I still use it?

Yes, definitely. It will only make your skin look more amazing! Your skin will benefit from the powerful protection and anti-aging properties, derived from plant extracts, oils, and active ingredients. Our Flower Face Cream is designed to be balancing and to love most skin types.

I’m pregnant, can I use Be Fraiche skincare?

Yes, you can. We strongly adhere to the industry practice and all of our essential oils and the dosage used are considered safe for pregnant ladies. If you're unsure, always check with a medical practitioner first.
