Frequently Asked Questions
ARE HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS ORGANIC / NATURAL?
HobePergh products combine the power of scientific, natural and advanced ingredients that are highly effective, non-toxic, non-irritating and non-aggressive. We do not endorse labels such as “organic”, “natural” or “clean”, which do not have a consistent definition and say nothing about a product’s effectiveness. We believe that “organic” certification does not always produce the best ingredient, where possible we use it, but we believe that science through nature is the best way to offer an effective and efficient cosmetic.
DOES HOBEPERGH USE SILICONES AND PARABENS?
All HobePergh products are formulated without Silicones and Parabens.
DO HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS CONTAIN PERFUME?
Generally not, but with limited exceptions. Most fragrances contain allergic substances, or “allergens”: if present, it is mandatory to indicate this on the label, even if the percentage contained is minimal. The “Fragrance”, if used in our products is used in minimal percentages. Whenever possible, we tend to use fragrances that do not contain allergens and which should therefore give rise to fewer problems. When the fragrance is present in a HobePergh product, it is indicated in the list of ingredients as Perfume or Fragrance.
CAN I RECYCLE HOBEPERGH PACKAGING?
As a company we have a strong environmental ethic: we are acting on a drastic reduction of packaging materials, on the transition from plastic to glass as a raw material and on other sustainable materials. This change has begun and will continue. We are limiting outer packaging and reducing our packaging (and therefore the size of the product on the shelf). We try to use plastic containers (Code 1) that do not compromise the effectiveness of the product.
ARE HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS VEGAN?
We do not describe our products as “vegan”, although HobePergh products are almost entirely vegan in reality. However, some of our products contain cruelty-free beeswax. To find out more about the ingredients in our products, please see “Active Ingredients” listed under each individual product or contact our customer service team email@example.com
DOES HOBEPERGH PERFORM ANIMAL TESTS?
Our products and ingredients are not and will never be tested on animals, under any circumstances.
HOBEPERGH AND THE “SPF”?
At HobePergh we believe that broad spectrum sun protection (against both UVA and UVB rays) is absolutely essential whenever an individual has significant exposure to UVA or UVB rays. UVA rays can also penetrate through the windows of cars, vehicles and offices.
WHERE CAN I FIND THE LIST OF INGREDIENTS CONTAINED IN THE HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS?
The list of ingredients (INCI) can be found on the label or packaging of each product and can be viewed directly on our website.
FROM WHAT AGE CAN I USE KUNKA KIDS ON MY BABY?
The Kunka Kids line is formulated without harmful and aggressive irritants and is gentle enough to be used every day. However, as a baby’s skin barrier takes some time to mature, we recommend that you wait until your baby is at least eight weeks old before using any product on the skin.
CAN I USE HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS IF I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN?
Absolutely. All our products are specially designed to be tolerated by even the most sensitive skin types as we avoid using unnecessary and aggressive ingredients that could cause, rather than fight, inflammation and irritation to the skin.
However, the skin of each of us is unique and can react negatively to any ingredient. For example, some people may find that they are sensitive to natural ingredients such as essential oils or fruit extracts – by listing the full ingredients within each product page on our website, we allow customers to make an informed choice before purchasing. . Even the most “delicate” ingredients can cause a reaction in some people’s skin, so we recommend testing a small amount of the product on the inner skin of the wrist area to ensure compatibility.
CAN HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS CAUSE AN UNWANTED REACTION?
The entire HobePegh line is formulated to guarantee the minimum case of allergic reactions. However, if you have noticed sensitivity reactions in the past following the use of cosmetic products, you can take a test. Just apply a coin-sized amount of product (taken from a tester) to the inside of your forearm and leave it for a full day. If the area turns red or has any kind of reaction, the product probably contains a raw material that is not tolerated. If there is no reaction, you can use the product with confidence.
WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF A HOBEPERGH PRODUCT?
All beauty products must be used within a certain period. This is known as the “period after opening” and can be easily identified by the PAO symbol, an opened jar with a number inside: 6M will indicate 6 months, 9M is 9 months and 12M is 12 months. After this period the quality of the product will deteriorate.
CAN HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS BE USED DURING PREGNANCY?
We understand that, during pregnancy, many women look for alternative products to those rich in botanical extracts, although, in our opinion, there are no risks associated with the use of any HobePergh formulation during pregnancy. However, we recommend that you contact your gynecologist or dermatologist to dispel any doubts or concerns.
WHERE ARE HOBEPERGH PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED? ARE THEY MADE IN ITALY?
The headquarters are located in Asiago. Our laboratories are mainly in Veneto as the functional active ingredients used in our products.
The production is strictly made in Italy.
