Frequently Asked Questions
Are DermaQuell products non-GMO?
We do our best to use non-GMO sourced ingredients in Quell skincare as much as possible. However, some ingredients are impossible to be verified (such as the beeswax we use though it is sourced in the US) while other ingredients cannot be confirmed as non-GMO due to complexity within the supply chain (i.e. certain base oils and hydrosols used in certain ingredients). In our efforts to be transparent, this difficulty in verification prevents us from claiming that all ingredients are non-GMO.
Are DermaQuell products vegan or vegetarian?
Due to the presence of beeswax and silk amino acids in DermaQuell products, none of the skin creams are considered vegan. Since beeswax comes from bees and silk amino acids are derived from silk that comes from silkworms, it’s ultimately up to you if you are comfortable using these nourishing ingredients.
Are DermaQuell products organic?
Quell skincare products use organic ingredients whenever possible, but some ingredients are so obscure that they are difficult to find certified organic. And some ingredients aren’t able to BE certified organic at all — like the mineral Zinc, for example (it’s not a plant). That said, Quell skincare products use all-natural, botanical ingredients whenever possible. The only synthetic ingredient is TriStat Eco preservative which is nature-identical and ensures product safety, stability, shelf life without requiring refrigeration, and enhances the product’s spreadability and consistency for a lovely customer experience.
