You've got questions, we've got answers

Products

Why should I use Then I Met You products?

We’re obsessed with formulating the best possible products with indulgent, effective results in mind. Our product formulas go through official tests with independent labs to ensure that they are safe for your skin. We keep in mind the importance of the formulas to be free of artificial coloring and other potential triggers for sensitive skin types. Each product works best for various skin types, so refer to the product descriptions to find out more.

Our obsession with formulation and quality isn’t meant to deliver just superficial results- it's intended to inspire you to slow down and take time for yourself. By creating products like you’ve never known, we hope to inspire you to go deeper than you’ve ever gone.

What is the double cleanse?

The double cleanse isn’t a trend or “extra”- it’s science. An evidence-based technique used by skin care experts and enthusiasts worldwide, the double cleanse effectively and gently removes impurities that can cause acne and premature aging for all skin types. Using an oil-based cleanser washes away oil-based impurities such as sunscreen and makeup, while a water-based cleanser ensures that the remaining impurities are removed from skin.

Do I need to purchase both the oil and the gel cleanser for my double cleanse to be effective?

Yes! We recommend using the double cleanse every morning and night to effectively and gently remove all impurities from your skin.

My oil cleanser changed color! Is this normal?

It’s perfectly normal! A high concentration of seaberry oil gives the oil cleanser its natural orange color. With continued exposure to light and oxygen, the vivid color derived from natural seaberry oil and its fragrance fades, but it does not compromise the effectiveness or potency of the product.

Are Then I Met You Products cruelty-free?

All Then I Met You products are cruelty-free and are Leaping Bunny Certified!

Are Then I Met You products organic or all-natural?

Then I Met You is not a brand focused on organic or all-natural formulas. We use high concentrations of natural ingredients wherever we can, but we also rely upon our deep understanding of what ingredients (some of which are made in the lab) help your skin glow best. Ingredients we do avoid include parabens, synthetic coloring, synthetic fragrances, denatured alcohol and mineral oil.

Will Then I Met You products expire?

Our products have an unopened shelf-life of 30 months or an opened shelf-life of 12 months.

Are Then I Met You products safe to use during pregnancy or while nursing?

Sustainability

What are the product and shipping details for the "Recycle To Restock" Initiative?

Can I only send Then I Met You Products?

No! We want to help you recycle all your skincare empties. Just make sure they are clean (or as clean as you can get them) and send them our way.

Do I have to pay for shipping?

Yes you have to pay for your own shipping, however please feel free to send us your empties in the original Then I Met You shipper box or any other box or pouch – and we will recycle that too on our end! Pro Tip: fill your box up with months of empties so you only have to pay for shipping once.

Is this program only for April/Earth Day?
We are happy to make this program available now and all year round. Sustainability is a journey and we are happy to partner with TerraCycle to make this part of our brand mission. Each month, 1 winner will be selected and receive a $25 gift card.

Doesn’t shipping products add to my carbon footprint?

That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Boxes. On top of collecting and recycling waste that would otherwise be destined for landfills or incineration, TerraCycle has made a commitment that all packages containing waste that are sent to them are carbon neutral. This means that whenever a package is sent, the carbon emissions released during its transport will be offset. By offsetting the emissions, they neutralize the negative impact it has on the environment. 

What's the difference between sending products to you versus my local recycling center?

Municipal recycling rules vary from location to location and require consumers to do the work in terms of figuring out what material each part of the product is made of and which materials are recyclable (a cap and tube from one product might be composed of different materials). Also, even though some materials are listed as recyclable, many don’t make it to recycling facilities for various reasons including size – if you cut up a plastic tube to get the last drop of product, the 2 pieces of the tube may now be too small for recyclable facilities to sort and therefore the pieces end up in landfills. 

That’s why we partnered with TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes. They accept materials in most sizes and forms. The materials sent to TerraCycle are then size-reduced (made smaller by being shredded or ground), melted and reformatted into pellets, flakes, or a powder format to make a new material that is used in construction of items like park benches and playground equipment.
