The website speaks of Black Women and Women of Color. Do Ekhambee products work on light and Anglo/white skin?
Ekhambee products work for all skin tones. The website talks about Women of color since our products do not have ingredients that are more harmful for those with more melanin in their skin by not including abrasive exfoliants and many trending acids that could scar the skin, cause long term damage, discoloration, and hyperpigmentation.
Are Ekhambee skin care products clean?
Yes, Ekhambee ingredients do not contain Sulphates, Parabens, Silicone, Mineral Oils, Petroleum, Chemical Fragrances, Artificial Colors, and Abrasive Exfoliants that could scar melanin-rich skin.

Yes, standard and expedited shipping is available. Any duties are the responsibility of the customer.
Why does the product look different or has floating particles?
It is normal for natural skincare to appear different because the ingredients might change a bit based on when they were harvested. Separation in natural products can occur due to the absence of synthetic emulsifiers that help mix oil and water-based ingredients. Natural formulations do not have chemical stabilizers, that can lead to the separation of components. To address this, shake the product regularly before use to recombine the ingredients.
Why container may not look full?
The appearance of a less-than-full container can result from settling during shipping or variations in product compactness. Natural ingredients may also cause slight changes in volume. Rest assured, the container holds the specified amount, and any differences are usually due to factors like settling, not a lack of product.
How Long is your Shelf Life?
Ekhambee wants to ensure that you have a safe and natural lifestyle. After purchasing and opening, all skincare products, you should be completely used within 18 months—most of our products are used within three months.
Ekhambee natural skincare products were created as solutions for highly sensitive skin without highly comedogenic (meaning, it can clog pores) ingredients.
What is hyperpigmentation?
When there is excess pigmentation and changes to the skin or nails when it becomes darker than what is normal and when compared by the surrounding skin from increased melanin.
What ingredients should I avoid?
Parabens, petroleum, sulphates, phthalates, silicones, Propylene Glycol, mineral oil, paraffin, PEG, Formaldehyde, polyethylene beads, pesticides, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrances. Alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and retinols should be avoided for skin with more melanin and for long term use and facial skin clogging ingredients such as coconut oil and cocoa butter.
