What is your return policy?

Are your products clean? Are they safe?
This is a difficult question for us to answer. Our skincare is coming out later this year and next and we have spent years on our serum’s formulation ensuring the sourcing, testing and stability were to our standard (higher than the heavens).
Working with a dermatological advisor, and having an expert chemist on Dieux’s co-founding team, we know that clean definitions don’t mean much. There is no standard, and without a regulatory arm of the FDA monitoring it, it’s a lot of faith in corporations; you’re going to be biased when you come up with your own rules, even if they started with good intentions. It also reinforces the idea that nature is safe. Nature can be incredibly dangerous and the toxicity of anything will always be in the dose. Water can be toxic, doesn’t mean we don’t use the right dose for our bodies. It also reinforces that mining nature is good for nature, we believe, sometimes, it’s best to leave nature alone and source ingredients from labs. Nuance is everything, we’re here to go through it together.
Are our products tested and safe? Yes. We don’t like saying we are clean as it implies that other brands are dirty. Instead of focusing on lists that aren’t vetted by toxicologists, we go the extra mile by following EU regulations to stability test our products (not a requirement in the US) and we do Human Repeat Insult Patch Tests on unknown ingredients. This ensures the product has a measured level of safety and doesn’t disrupt skin on average. Our products will always focus on what’s in them, not what it’s “free from.”
We don’t use parabens in our skincare not because we think they are “bad” but because the dialogue has gotten further and further from the science which shows they are demonstrably safe.
That being said, our skincare and supplements will be vegan and cruelty-free.
For any question as to our formulations we would love to hear from you! Our brand is rooted in transparency and a deep knowledge of chemistry, we’re here to dieux all the nerdy skincare things with you. email@example.com.
Are you vegan and cruelty-free?
Dieux is proudly vegan and cruelty-free.
How do you vet your claims?
For tested ingredients we use clinical data to ensure we are using ingredients at the correct and studied dose. Certain ingredients have only been shown to live up to claims at specific levels, we ensure we give you those levels!
We also stability test final formulations to ensure every active ingredient plays nice and is still in working order by the time it reaches your glowing face. As this isn’t a requirement in the US, there are no guarantees that your product is still active.
For untested ingredients like cannabinoids, we do our own proprietary clinicals to back up our claims. Pending the product and claims we want to make, we’ll also conduct clinicals on final formulations and do irritation testing with a third party facility.
Are you paraben-free?
Yes, but with a caveat; because the market dictates it. Science repeatedly shows that parabens are demonstrably safe in cosmetics. That being said, we had to make a business decision to choose other preservatives that our head of product and regulatory agencies in the US and EU has deemed safe and plays well in formulas.
Our products and future formulations, for the moment, are free from potential allergens like nuts, gluten and soy.
What are your products "free from?"
Dieux is "free from" fear. Free-from lists are being banned in Europe due to their misleading nature. At Dieux we never want to scare you or be alarmist on things that don't merit alarm. We are transparent on our formulas and dosing, any questions you have, please ask, firstname.lastname@example.org. Our first formulations are coming out later this year.
Are your products safe to use during pregnancy?
Our eye masks are safe for use during pregnancy as are our scrunchies. As we launch products we will keep pregnancy safety up to date but please speak with your doctor first!
Is your packaging eco-friendly?
We’re committed to sustainability, this means looking at products in a few ways. For one, we want you to buy less, hence our Forever Mask which is meant to be purchased once vs sheet masks that are single use. We make products that aim to be fully recyclable or reusable. We also look to packaging that’s light to reduce carbon footprints in shipping, ideally from recyclable and renewable sources. All consumption has a footprint, as a small company we do our best and know we can always be dieux-ing better. To that end, we don’t believe in stasis, we do bi-quarterly reviews of our packaging to see what innovations are available on the market.
If you have any suggestions on how Dieux can improve our impact (or happen to work at a packaging or recycling facility), please drop us a line and say hello at email@example.com.
Are your products ethically made?
We are a small team and work directly with the labs, factories and sourcing facilities. We've worked hard to ensure our entire process is held to high ethical and environmental standards. We select partners based on their GMPs (good manufacturing practices), environmental benchmarks on the ingredient sourcing side and fair labor practices. Our GMPs forbid forced labor, underage labor, hazardous work environments, harassment and discrimination based on race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, pregnancy status, political opinions, religion, age and disability unrelated to an individual’s ability to perform the work required by the job.
Do you donate to any organizations?
Yes, as an American company, we believe everyone has the right to vote. We support Stacey Abram’s Fair Fight, an organization dedicated to voter re-enfranchisement, bringing “awareness to the public on election reform, advocates for election reform at all levels, and engages in other voter education programs and communications.”
As a brand that is creating skincare based on cannabinoids (our clinical study will be released next year) we are a proud member of the Floret Coalition. The Floret Coalition is an anti-racist collective of small businesses in the cannabis and cannabis-adjacent space supporting and funding equity-oriented actions via monthly donations and social campaigns. Together, we raise funds and awareness for organizations prioritizing the needs of Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities.
