We are happy to answer your question. But perhaps you are lucky enough to find the answer in our FAQ below?
When developing a black mascara, it is primarily Iron Oxide (CI 77499) that is used to achieve the deep black colour. Since Iron Oxide naturally contains traces of nickel, it is unavoidable to produce a mascara that is 100% without nickel.
Even if you are allergic, you can still use our mascara - despite them not being 100% nickel-free. Look for the AllergyCertified logo, as it indicates that the product contains a minimal amount of nickel. This is because AllergyCertified has very strict requirements with regards to the amount of nickel and requires testing of the finished product as proof of the nickel content.
This means that the risk of an allergic reaction is so small that even if you have a nickel allergy, you can apply our mascaras regardless.
We at Nilens Jord often get positive feedback from happy customers with allergies, such as perfume allergies and nickel allergies, who tolerate our products - but we still want to stress: we cannot guarantee that you will be able to tolerate all the ingredients we use in our products.
Nilens Jord develops makeup and skincare with a strong focus on ingredients. We do not add unnecessary ingredients and all ingredients should contribute to the quality of our products. Nilens Jord products are completely free of perfumes, essential oils and suspected endocrine disruptors, and no suspected endocrine disruptors are added.
We receive a lot of requests from people with allergies to specific trace elements, that can occur in dyes. Dyes are written on our boxes declared as CI-followed by a five-digit number.
If you have confirmed allergy by a doctor, ask your doctor to write down the ingredients, you can't tolerate. This will help when you are buying our makeup and skin care products as all ingredients are listed on the packaging.
If you have any doubts about this, please feel free to write to us here or at email@example.com.
It is very difficult, if not impossible, to develop products that are unconditionally tolerated by everyone. By comparison, some people do not tolerate pineapple despite the fact that the fruit is both healthy and without added flavour or preservation. Every person's skin is different and reacts individually.
Nilens Jord does not allow animal testing of our products and ingredients, and this is luckily also prohibited in Denmark and by the EU law.
Nilens Jord is not designed for vegans. Beeswax and/or other animal ingredients may appear in some of our products. However, we have a number of products that are not of animal origin, and are therefore usable if you are vegan. You can find our selection of vegan products here. Or look at the product packaging, or the product description on this page, where all ingredients in the product are provided.
No, makeup by Nilens Jord does not contain MI. MI stands for methylisothiazollinone and is a preservative used to extend the durability of makeup products.
We recommend those with a tendency towards allergies to avoid products with MI.
A solar filter protects your skin from harmful UV rays and can occur in sunscreens in two forms; physical and/or chemical filters. The physical filters (which also consist of chemical substances) rest on top of the skin, where they protect by spreading and reflecting uv rays. This type of filter can be difficult to lubricate and often leaves a white-ish glow. The chemical solar filters work by absorbing the UV rays and converting them into heat. The sun filters used in the sunscreens by Nilens Jord are exclusively chemical filters. The filters have been selected based on their minimal risk of giving allergies and because they are among the most environmental friendly solar filters.
Yes, all our sunscreens are waterproof. However, in order to maintain the protection factor, it is important to remember to apply more sunscreen after going for a swim, sweating or drying your body with a towel or similar, even if it is (very) waterproof.
