No! Flint Plus Flint and our suppliers do not test Flint Plus Flint products on animals. We are animal lovers and strive to see all animals loved and cared for. However, no skincare company (including the much bigger ones) can make a 100% animal test-free claim as the majority of raw ingredients would have been tested on animals at some point prior to the EU legislation change in March 2013.
Simply because we believe these are the only products that you will need. Many manufacturers offer grand and expansive ranges that sometimes confuse, add unnecessary expense and take up much needed space. We want to keep things simple.
Yes. Being avid travelers ourselves, we made it very clear that the products must travel in a briefcase or handbag. Some products like the Everyday Wash, Exfoliator and Glycolic Cleanser are smaller than our competitors for the simple reason that we have believe you should not pay for water when you have a tap to hand. So in some cases, we ask that you apply a little water to the product and use as normal. You save on space, cost of purchase and it’s better for the environment.
Chloasma (commonly known as Melasma) can be triggered by several factors including hormonal, sun exposure and genetics. The result is an increase in melanin resulting in areas of dark pigmentation in the skin. It is well documented that lightening agents over time will help this as will retinoic acid (a form of Retinol) and glycolic peels. Sun exposure significantly hampers treatment and aggravates the condition.
Based on this Flint + Flint products are expertly suited to assist. The recommendation would be a course of glycolic/everyday cleanser, serum appliedat least twice daily to clean skin for its potent skin activating vitamin-c lightening agent, moisturiser 3x at night for its encapsulated time release retinyl palmitate (which the skin converts to retinoic acid) this should ONLY be used at night as retinyl palmitate does make the skin more susceptible to sun exposure so it would be counterintuitive to use this product during daylight hours.
The user should make every effort to avoid all sun exposure but should also apply SPF primer during all daylight hours as a further protective and preventative measure. We would normally advise that this offers an 8 hour protection for normal skin types however Melasma sufferers have a heightened sun sensitivity and therefore should re‐apply the product every 4 hours for maximum protection.

Always apply Serum following any wash product before applying either Moisturize (preferably in the day) or Moisturizer 3x (preferably in the evening).
During the day follow-up with SPF Primer. Always use SPF Primer following any Glycolic wash when the sun is up – even when it’s cloudy or raining. Our Exfoliator can be used two or three times a week or as required, again, please remember to use Serum followed by Moisturiser or Moisturiser 3x.
