I am allergic to everything! Is Yours Only made for people with sensitive skin like me?
Your Only was founded by Ashli Templer, an Aussie who is allergic to well, a lot. We have tried to tackle most allergens, which is why we don’t add salicylates, biogenic amines, gluten, nuts, soy, fragrance, parabens, silicons, triclosan, mineral oils, petrolatum, sulfates, colourants and animal-derived products to CLEAN + COAT. Our products have been dermatologically tested on sensitive humans too.
We always recommend doing a patch test on an unseen area before using Yours Only products, just to be safe.
Can you use CLEAN and COAT on your face?
Yes, it’s so gentle, it can be used (almost everywhere). CLEAN is also a great shampoo.
Why are your products fragrance free?
Well, fragrances have a reputation for making us smell good, but they’re actually not that great for us. That’s because fragrances are swimming with major irritants. If you have sensitive or allergy-prone skin, some mild fragrances might be tolerated, while others will cause all sorts of rashy flare-ups and headaches. It’s best we leave them out.
Do the cleansers, errr, clean?
They do better than clean. They clean, refresh, protect, soothe and hydrate the skin. Our products have as much — if not more — power than your regular soaps and moisturisers. Why? We’ve excluded ingredients that strip and irritate the skin and added soothing ones that nourish and protect.
I have dry to offensively dry skin. Is COAT suitable for me?
Yes. In fact, you’re the ideal candidate. COAT is dedicated to people that suffer from sensitive skin, so we’ve made sure it’s the perfect balance of consistency, hydration and longevity. In other words, the triple threat.
I have a food chemical intolerance. Can I use your products?
We were MADE for you. We’ve even had dieticians give our ingredients a tick of approval.
Will Yours Only calm my eczema?
Yours Only products are not medicated so we can’t guarantee our products will reduce your eczema. None of our products contain ingredients that will flare up your eczema BUT everyone reacts differently so we can’t claim this 100%. We recommend applying COAT twice daily for nourished and hydrated skin.
Can I use Yours Only products if I am pregnant?
Our products don’t contain any of the ingredients you need to worry about when pregnant ie. retinoids, retinol and BHAs (salicylic acid). We recommend consulting your doctor before using any of our products.
I am allergic to preservatives. Are you free of these?
Every skincare product must have some sort of preservative to ensure fungus, mould, yeast, bacteria and other microbes don’t grow in your products. We have used the smallest and safest amounts possible to ensure your sensitive system doesn’t get affected.
Is Yours Only tested on animals?
Absolutely not. Just sensitive humans.
Does Yours Only contain palm oil?
We ONLY use ingredients that are RSPO certified.
Are your ingredients 100% natural?
As sensitive humans, a lot of natural ingredients irritate our skin. We have a nice blend of natural and very, very safe synthetic ingredients to ensure we have products that perform and don’t give us a nasty rash.
Where are Yours Only products made?
Right here, in our home town of Melbourne, Australia.
Who makes the Yours Only products?
That’s our little secret. We can tell you they’re a privately owned company that knows their sh*t when it comes to developing amazing and safe products for sensitive humans like us.
What is the expiry on Yours Only products?
If you dare to leave them on your shelf unopened, 36 months. As soon as you start using CLEAN or COAT, use them up in 12 months.
Is your packaging environmentally friendly?
We are passionate about creating a sustainable future. Our bottles are made from HDPE, meaning they’re recyclable. Our (very pretty) mailing boxes and all the fancy things that come in the box are all 100% recyclable, too.
Are your products dermatologically tested?
Yes, yes yes. We tested our products on Aussie hypersensitive humans through a thorough RIPT process.
Does Yours Only contain parabens and sulfates?
Our founder struggled to find products that worked for her which were free of parabens and sulfates. We know they’re hormone disrupters, which is why we don’t add them to any of our products.
What allergens do you cater for?
We don’t add salicylates, biogenic amines, gluten, nuts, soy, fragrance, parabens, silicons, triclosan, mineral oils, petrolatum, sulfates, colourants and animal-derived products.
