Are Nurme Cosmetics shampoos suitable for washing unprocessed and / or curly hair?

All Nurme Cosmetics shampoos have pure ingredients, do not contain silicones, parabens or synthetic fragrances or dyes. Therefore, they are also ideal for uncolored and / or curly hair.

How to wash your hair with a shampoo bar??
When washing your hair with any any shampoo bar, it is essential to remember that it is very important to have rich foam. The foam is what washes the soap residue from the hair and what removes the grease from your hair. We definitely recommend washing your hair twice.
Wet the hair, rub the solid shampoo between your hands to make foam and apply it to the hair. Then rinse and repeat. The second wash should already produce a very rich lather of foam and the hair will be clean. Use hair conditioner if desired.
How to use essential oils?

The use of essential oils is very wide – they can be used in aroma lamps / diffusers for room scenting and / or aromatherapy, added to bath water, in a massage oil, creams, etc. You can read a comprehensive overview of the use and effects of essential oils in our blog post – What is essential oil and how to use it?

How much alcohol do Nurme hand sanitizers contain and do they kill viruses and bacteria on the skin?
100 ml of hand sanitizer contains the maximum amount of 80 ml of alcohol permitted by the Health Board. It represents 80% per 100 ml. In other words, the Nurme hand sanitizers contain 80% alcohol.
As the prescriptions of the Health Board for hand sanitizers are based on the gram weight and the permitted alcohol content is 65% of the gram weight, the alcohol content of the packaging is 65% for this reason. Converted into milliliters, 65g of alcohol = 80 ml, or in the case of a 100 ml bottle, it is 80% filled with alcohol.
There are many different bacteria and viruses; some of them are easier to kill with alcohol than others. Such differences are due to the peculiarities of the construction of the outer surface of the bacteria. For example, alcohol with a strength of more than 60% is very effective in killing coliform bacteria, which cause foodborne illness and other infections.
Some viruses have an outer layer called a membrane. Alcohol successfully kills viruses, including coronaviruses, that have such a membrane, but is less effective in killing viruses without a membrane.
When controlling both viruses and bacteria, it is important to keep in mind that a number of studies have shown that a disinfectant must contain at least 60% alcohol to work effectively.

Do Nurme products contain palm oil?

Nurme Cosmetics stopped using palm oil in cosmetic products in 2017, although the oil used before it had a sustainable palm oil certificate. The only product that we have not been able to replace palm oil in is the solid shampoo with hemp seed oil, which is popular on the Finnish market. We repeatedly tried to replace palm oil, but unfortunately the product’s properties suffered so much that we raised our hands and stuck to the recipe that was developed in 2012. Since Nurme’s product range includes a total of 5 solid shampoos, the customer always has the opportunity to choose another product. Each product has its own life cycle and one day the popularity of solid shampoo with hemp oil will end. Nurme’s principle remains that the products we develop and bring to the market are always palm oil-free.

Where do Nurme essential oils come from? Does Nurme produce them by themselves? Can essential oils be consumed inside food?
Nurme does not produce essential oils itself. This would be a very complicated and expensive process, as raw materials (orange, eucalyptus, lemongrass, etc.) do not grow in our climate. The oils come from different countries (France, Spain, India, Brazil, etc.), where the plant or fruit is widely distributed and grown. In the product description of each essential oil we sell, we have indicated the country of origin.
Although Nurme essential oils also have a food certificate, due to the responsibility of the manufacturer of cosmetic products, Nurme Cosmetics does not share information and has no responsibility for the use of essential oil in food.
We confirm that the oils are clean – they do not contain parabens, prohibited preservatives, dyes or UV filters.

How do Nurme's natural aluminum-free deodorants work?

Aluminum is a deodorant component that blocks sweating, but everything we lubricate on our skin is absorbed by our body, and aluminum is certainly not the metal our body loves.
Nurme products contain antiperspirant components such as essential oils and baking soda, which prevent the smell from spreading. Sweat itself is absorbed by cornstarch. Sweating is a natural and necessary process for the body!
As Nurme deodorant does not eliminate sweating but the components neutralize the odor and absorb sweat, it is effective as long as the user feels comfortable. A person with heavier sweat should use the deodorant to refresh during the day. Thus, the efficacy may not be as high as for deodorants containing aluminum compounds, but is much safer for the body in the long run.

Are Nurme body scrubs also suitable for facial skin?

The choice of exfoliator depends primarily on the skin type. For more sensitive and convex skin, soft exfoliators should be preferred to avoid irritating the delicate skin by rubbing the skin with mechanical particles. For all other skin types, ie. dry, normal, combination and oily, it’s ideal to use both gentle (enzyme) and exfoliating peelers. When using face scrubs, be sure to use gentler scrubs. Nurme body scrubs contain sugar or sea salt, which is a bit too hard for peeling facial skin. Therefore, we do not recommend Nurme body scrubs for exfoliating facial skin.
