Brand and Products
What is NUXE policy on animal testing?
NUXE do not test on animals neither its products nor the ingredients contained in its products, then respecting the European law that prohibits the use of such methods.
How does NUXE test its products?
To support our claims, all our products undergo a whole range of innocuity and efficacy tests, carried out under dermatological supervision. Tests reports are confidential and made available to competent authorities.
Can I use your products during pregnancy?
Laboratoire NUXE does not currently have a specific range for pregnant women. All of our products are tested under dermatological supervision and there is not to our knowledge any particular risk factor. However, we have not conducted clinical tests under medical supervision on this target population. It is therefore a precautionary principle. We prefer to recommend that NUXE products are not used during pregnancy.
Can I use your products when I am breastfeeding?
Laboratoire NUXE does not currently have a specific range for women who are breastfeeding. However, the facial products may be used during breastfeeding, even for Face products containing Essential Oils, as these are only contained in small amounts and the face is a sufficiently limited application area.
With regards to Huile Prodigieuse® and our Huile Prodigieuse® Or, whose fragrance contains essential oils; we recommend that you avoid applying it to the bust or any other area that may come into contact with your baby.
Can I apply your products on my child’s skin?
Laboratoire NUXE does not currently have a specific range for children. Since March 2009, AFSSAPS (French Health Products Safety Agency), has significantly clamped down on its recommendations in terms of product formulations designed for children. As we have not developed products specifically for this target, we recommend not to use NUXE products on your child's skin.
Can you inform me about the expiration date of a product?
Since 2013, we display the expiration date on the pack. We also still display the PAO information on the pack, this means Period After Opening. So you can see a pictogram on our boxes showing an open jar specifying the recommended usage period once the pack has been open. It usually varies between 6 months (6M) and 24 months (24M).
Can I put my products in the fridge?
Yes you can put your products in the fridge.
What is the difference in terms of composition between a sample and a retail product?
Our samples are exactly the same in terms of product compared to the products we sell.
