PRODUCTS

VANI-T does not participate in animal testing. We never have or never would test our ingredients, formulas or finished products on our furry friends.

All products in our makeup, tanning and wellness range are cruelty free and vegan except those containing Collagen. There is currently no vegan alternative in today’s market.

Yes they are, however if you experience any allergies or sensitivities we always advise a patch test first as precaution.

It is a certification process for producers of organic products. Requirements vary from country to country, and generally involve a set of production standards for growing, storage, processing, packaging and shipping that include: Avoidance of most synthetic chemical inputs, use of farmland that has been free from chemicals for a number of years, keeping detailed written production and sales records, physical separation of organic products from non-certified products to name a few.

VANI-T products as a whole are not certified organic however they are rich in natural and organic ingredients, and high in vitamins, actives, luscious natural oils and pure botanicals. Some of the ingredients used in our products are however certified organic such as Aloe Vera, plant oils and actives. When formulating products, VANI-T is extremely cautious of what ingredients are used without compromising the quality, feel and effectiveness. VANI-T would never use ingredients that are known to cause harm, and where possible they are required to be organic or naturally derived.

All VANI-T products contain/use ingredients that are sourced from sustainable and renewable resources wherever possible. Our raw material manufacturers have a “sustainability policy” in place, and this covers materials sourced from natural sources. They advise any palm oil used in products is sourced from members of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil).

None of our products contain nano particles. These tend to be used in sunscreen where zinc is very finely ground so that it appears "invisible" on the skin. Ours on the contrary are larger particles to give the coverage needed in a foundation.

TANNING

Research does not show any dangers to pregnant women. However, as a precaution we suggest checking with your doctor especially in the first trimester.

Our tan is made with a high content of naturally derived ingredients, so you shouldn't break out. However if you have sensitive skin our alternative option would be to use our Glow+ Self Tan Drops. Just mix with your moisturiser, serum or oil and apply evenly to the face.

Designed to fulfill your deepest tan desires, Noir is our darkest tan ever. With up to 125% more tanning actives than most leading brands, Noir delivers the darkest tan VANI-T has ever developed without compromising on colour.

Our tans can last up to 10 days when used in conjunction with daily application of our Bronzing Custard and hydrating your skin.

We recommend to moisturise every day after your tan has been washed off. To extend your tan even longer, we suggest to add our Bronzing Custard on top. This acts as a tan extender, body moisturiser and a gradual tanner, all in 1.

All of our tans develop in 1-2 hours for a light tan, 2-4 hours for a medium tan, 4-6 hours for dark tan and 6+ hours for an ultra-dark tan. The longer you leave it on, the darker your tan will be, so our tans are fully customisable.

Due to the confidential nature of our formulations, we can’t disclose the exact level of DHA in our products. However, our entire range of tanning products are of professional standards.

MAKEUP

Due to variances in mineral oxides mined from different locations, minor colour variations may be noted from batch to batch and are beyond our control. A formulation may appear different by visual comparison - however the applied colour would be the same, if not very similar, to the previous batch and is therefore deemed as similar as can be for a pure, natural, mineral colour product.

Our Skin Perfector HD Serum Foundation instantly gives a smooth, pore-diffusing finish that easily builds to medium to full coverage. If you prefer sheer coverage, you can mix with your moisturiser to offer coverage similar to a BB cream. It can also be used for spot concealing by pressing the foundation directly onto the area you wish to conceal.

Our Powders are made with 100% pure minerals so you will find it soothes the skin giving a great coverage. The micro diffusers diminish fine lines and wrinkles and won't leave the skin feeling dry and tight. We have many mature skin clients and reviews on our website.

Definitely, our matte, oil-free serum foundation is made with climate-adaptive technology that’s resistant to sweat and humidity and won’t clog pores. Totally weightless means you won’t even know you’re wearing it.

WELLNESS

By the time we reach middle age, our collagen production has dropped by over half resulting in skin that lacks firmness, elasticity and wrinkles begin to form. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body the only way we can achieve plump firm skin as we age is to supplement the body with collagen. Scientific studies show collagen not only dramatically improves hair, skin and nails, but it also assists with joints, tendons, muscles and can assist with weight loss and sleep too.

Our collagen is virtually tasteless and odourless, unlike marine collagen which often has a slight ‘fishy’ taste or odour.

Lumiere - Generally, it takes 27-42 days for the skin to renew itself (the newest formed cells to reach the top). This process slows down as we age. This means it will likely take at least one month before you start to notice any differences, although our customers often notice a difference much sooner.

Sculpt - People achieve clear results within a credible time frame (10-12 weeks) and with reasonable investment (2-3 hours resistance training per week).

Yes, collagen is suitable for consumption during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Lumiere and Sculpt are 90% protein and contains 18 amino acids so many new mums find great results from taking collagen especially after the hormonal changes throughout the pregnancy such as hair loss and fatigue.

100% pure bovine (beef) collagen – no fillers, no additives. With 90% bioavailability you can gain the maximum benefits. Unfortunately, there is no vegan alternative to collagen available on the market at present so our collagen range is not suitable for vegans. Virtually tasteless and odourless, zero carbs, sugar or fat, it can be easily added to water, coffee, smoothies or baking.

Lumiere - If you take 2 level teaspoons a day, this is equivalent to approximately 5 grams. So, consuming 5 grams a day, one pouch will last you approximately 7 weeks. You can of course take up to 10 grams a day for maximum results meaning the pouch will last approximately 3 -4 weeks.

Sculpt - Consuming 15 grams a day, one pouch will last you approximately 4-5 weeks.

Not all collagen is created equal. The most important factor is molecular size as this determines how readily our bodies can absorb the collagen (and reap the benefits). Our collagen is manufactured to strict standards resulting in small peptide/molecular size for optimum (90%) bioavailability. Our bovine collagen is derived from grass fed cows and is shown to be approximately twice as effective as marine collagen (sans the fishy odour and taste too).
