I am sensitive to perfumes. Can I use Elements Bioactiv products?
The good news is that Elements Bioactiv products do not contain any synthetic fragrances. The aroma in our products comes from the natural essential oils. Every one of them has been chosen for their subtle natural scent and specific benefits for the skin. However it is possible to be sensitive even to essential oils. If in doubt, ask us for a sample of product you can try before the purchase.
I am allergic to shellfish and iodine. Can I use your products that contain ‘algae’?
Generally speaking, ingredients from the ocean like algae and seaweed contain iodine like shellfish does. The severity of the allergy varies from person to person. Some people cannot ingest shellfish but have no problem with products containing algae. Others cannot tolerate iodine in any shape or form and must avoid products containing algae. Elements Bioactiv home care products do not contain any algae. Elements Bioactiv professional spa treatments and some facial masks do contain algae. Please talk to your beauty therapist before commencing your salon treatment.
I am lactose intolerant. Can I use Alpha Beta micro peel with lactic acid?
Lactose intolerance usually relates to the digestive system. Lactic acid in skin care preparations remains on the skin and does not affect the small intestine. Additionally the lactic acid which we use in our product range comes from bio-fermented corn, not milk. You should not have any problems using Alpha Beta micro peel or any other Elements Bioactiv products containing lactic acid.

I am sensitive to the preservative called MI (methylisothiazolinone). Can I use your products?
