What is the shelf life of your products?

The shelf life varies by product but generally our products stay fresh for 12 – 18 months after opening. Look for the jar icon on the back of your product packaging to see how many months for which it will stay good after opening. Consonant products are made with all natural ingredients so they will react to extreme heat or cold. Store your Consonant products at room temperature and out of direct sunlight to maximize product life and efficacy.  

Where are your products made?

As a Canadian owned and operated business, all of our skincare products are proudly made in Canada. We source the highest quality ingredients from around the world but manufacture the final products locally. 

What does it mean to be 100% Natural and Ultra-Clean?

We created the Consonant Clean Ingredient Standard as a clear commitment to a healthier product to support your body, mind, soul and space. We formulate our products with only 100% natural ingredients, meaning they are either a botanical extract or oil, have been derived from a natural source, or are identical to molecules already found in nature. Products that are Consonant Clean don’t contain irritating ingredients, non-sustainably sourced ingredients, or ingredients that have been scientifically shown to lead to any negative health outcomes. 

Are your products gluten-free?

Our Hand Creams and Face Creams contain wheat germ oil, shampoo and conditioner contain hydrolyzed wheat protein, and our baby products and Oatmeal Open Stock Soap contain oatmeal. While oatmeal itself doesn't contain gluten we can't guarantee that the oatmeal hasn't come in contact with wheat before it gets to our facility. Our Vitamin E + Oat Serum contains oat oil but is certified gluten-free. 

Are your products vegan?

All of our products are vegan apart from our Organic Body Lotion and Healthy Baby Body lotion, both of which contain beeswax. 

Are your products cruelty-free?

Yes, all of our products are Peta Cruelty-Free Certified, meaning none of our products or ingredients are tested on animals. 

Are your products GMO-free?

We use GMO-free, organic ingredients whenever possible. Many of our products are made with 70-90% certified organic, GMO-free ingredients, but we don’t have any products that are certified 100% GMO-free. 

What does it mean to be clinically proven?
We believe in skin science. That’s why we evaluate not just ingredients for safety and efficacy but we also carry out third party clinical trials to compare our final products against industry leaders. Clinically proven means you can be confident that Consonant products will outperform both natural and traditional skin care based on third-party double-blind testing methodology.
 
What products can I use while pregnant/breast-feeding?
All of our products except for Maximum Glycolic Meta Serum, DHE Mask and Vitamin C + Licorice Serum. Some doctors recommend avoiding salicylates, like those found in the Maximum Glycolic Meta Serum and DHE Mask at 0.1%. Some doctors also recommend avoiding licorice extract which is found in our Vitamin C + Licorice Extract at 1% so we recommend checking in with your doctor before using them.
