The inside of an aluminum tube is covered with a protecting layer which makes it prevents formulas not to be in contact with the aluminum. Aluminium packaging can be recycled with a low energy consumption.

Sensitive skin is sensitive. And sometimes very unpredictable. If are dealing with a sensitive skin we advise you to consult with a dermatologist.

If you do not experience any reaction slowly work the product into your skin care regimen by using smaller amounts at first. If you have any questions or feedback write to us at info@bymukk.com.
