About RARE SkinFuel

 

When was RARE SkinFuel founded?

RARE SkinFuel was founded in 2018 by our founder Michelle Chen, and launched in October 2019.

 

Why was RARE SkinFuel created?

Michelle Chen founded RARE SkinFuel to support women going through different life stages to feel confident in their own skin by using this product line.   After Michelle gave birth, she found herself for the first time buying foundation compacts to hide flaws.  She tried to get her skin back under control.  Finally she found an Australian laboratory that could use natural, gentle but powerful extracts to create highly effective products.

 

Where is RARE SkinFuel formulated and manufactured?

RARE SkinFuel is formulated, manufactured and packed in Australia.   Each bottle, jar, and package is created and blended by hand with committed care under the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) code, ensuring ultimate cleanliness and sterility.

 

Are all the ingredients certified organic?

Most of our ingredients are certified organic.  Though some of our active ingredients are not labeled as certified organic, they are harvested from the pure, pristine and uncontaminated sources of Australia, and include branded ingredients such as Pentavitin, Maritech, Allantoin, just to name a few.

 

All our products are Australian Manufacture Certified, which is verified by the Australian Made Campaign Limited (AMCL) – a widely recognized, not-for-profit public company established in 1999 by the Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (ACCI) and the network of state and territory chambers of commerce, with the cooperation of the Federal Government. It provides a widely recognized independent certification that verifies a product as genuinely manufactured in Australia and meets Australian consumer standards.

 

What’s the difference between Star Ingredients and Ingredients?

Our Star Ingredients are the active ingredients of our product line.  At RARE SkinFuel, we are inspired by the richness and inherent healing power of nature. Our Star Ingredients include tried-and-true staples and newly-discovered upstarts of the skincare world, but all are nutrient-rich ingredients derived from the best unspoiled environments nature has to offer. Selected from the finest botanical extracts and natural oils, our products work because they carry the healing, nourishing and rejuvenating properties of nature. 

 

What makes RARE SkinFuel different from conventional brands?

The three principles that make RARE SkinFuel effective and different from conventional brands are: 

  • Selection of the finest botanical extracts and other natural ingredients.
  • The right manufacturing processes to retain the potency of our all-natural products.
  • Correct usage to ensure maximum effectiveness.

 

What is so special about RARE SkinFuel production?

RARE SkinFuel offers the best nutrients by nature.  The complicated production starts with Celular Extraction:  This process diffuses phyto-active compounds into the liquid medium without stressing or degrading the plant's biomatrix, delivering the full plant profile of water-soluble or oil-soluble phyto-compounds, as they exist in nature – pure, stable, unadulterated with synthetic additives, and remaining active for long periods of time.  The process is carried out through a complicated two-phase procedure to retain maximal efficacy.

 

 

About Our Products

 

Revitalizing Cream Cleanser

 

Can I use Revitalizing Cream Cleanser on my eyes and lips?

Yes.  Revitalizing Cream Cleanser is so super gentle and nourishing that it can be used anywhere on the face.  We promise you are also going to love it as an eye & lip makeup remover with added anti-aging benefits. 

 

Is it necessary to use Revitalizing Cream Cleanser twice every time?

We recommend double cleansing at night, especially if you have sunscreen or makeup on.  The first cleansing step is to remove dirt, makeup and other impurities, while the second cleansing step deep-cleanses the skin layer.  In the morning, we recommend only one use, which is enough to prepare the skin for the rest of the RARE skin regimen.

 

Does Revitalizing Cream Cleanser dry your skin?

Absolutely not.  Revitalizing Cream Cleanser goes far beyond cleansing.  Our formula is designed to clarify your skin while packing it with nature’s finest ingredients – including Aloe Vera, Quandong Extract, and Lilly Pilly Extracts – while Coconut Oil deeply moisturizes the skin and improves the skin’s ability to fight free radicals.

 

Activating Mist

 

Does Activating Mist contain Aqua (Water)?

Not at all.  None of our product range contains water as an ingredient because water depletes the skin’s own moisture, leaving it excessively dry.  Our Activating Mist revitalizes your skin with Certified Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, natural essential oils, and cold-blended anti-aging active extracts to hydrate, tone, calm and balance the skin.

 

The scent is amazing.  What is the special blend of the aroma?

With one inhale, the healing power of our product range can be felt – infusing the special aromas of Lavender, Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang oils into one revivifying fragrance.  Lavender helps to increase relaxation and calm.  Clary Sage encourages positivity with its clean, refreshing scent and promotes happiness.  Ylang Ylang is best known for balancing and regulating oil production in skin to prevent excessive dryness, and soothes and relieves inflammatory conditions of the skin.

 

Why does Activating Mist rejuvenate skin with 72-hour hydration?

Every step of your daily ritual skincare regimen is just as important as serums and creams.  Therefore we added Pentavitin in all our product range – an agent specifically engineered for deep hydration, generating a moisture reservoir that lasts 72 hours for visibly more moisturized and firmer skin without feeling extra greasy.  The skin stays hydrated for 3 consecutive days. 

 

 

Age Delaying Serum

 

What is cold-pressed skincare?

All of our products are handcrafted with love and passion through a complicated and lengthy two-phase procedure in order to retain the maximal efficacy of their ingredients.  The Hot Phase binds our cream-based products’ ingredients at up to 70 degrees Celsius in order for the oils and ingredients to properly blend.  The Cold-Pressed procedure allots additional time to allow natural cooling down to 30 degrees Celsius so as to preserve the active extracts’ minerals, vitamins and nutrients.  This Cold Phase is a hallmark of our pioneering product range that works: natural but powerful, gentle, and suitable for all skin types.  Instant Skin Vitality!

 

Why do I need Age Delaying Serum?

Because you will start to appreciate wearing our Age Delaying Serum for a natural glow instead of covering the skin with heavy layers of foundation.  Our Age Delaying products reawaken the bright glow and vitality of youth – all in one product.

 

Do I still need Age Delaying Cream after Age Delaying Serum?

Yes!  Both serum and cream work well together.  Serum targets the specific concern and delivers active ingredients deep into the skin, while cream locks in the moisture and nutrients with 72-hour hydration.  You need both to achieve the optimal result.

 

 

Age Delaying Cream

 

What makes Age Delaying Cream different from other moisturizers?

Most of the moisturizers in the market, even the most expensive brands, focus mainly on moisturizing content like oils and wax, and less on active ingredients.  Our Age Delaying Cream is handmade with mostly cold-blended active ingredients such as Pentavitin (72-hour hydrating agent), Maritech Fucoidan, Aquarich, and Vitamin B5, just to name a few, to ensure the cream is highly effective in delaying visible signs of aging for more youthful and plump skin. 

 

Can I use the cream as a leave-in mask?

Absolutely, yes!  In fact, it is suggested to apply a thick layer and leave it on for 2-3 minutes (when the cream starts to be absorbed into the skin), then pat it in.  The active ingredients are blended in cold-process without losing their nutrients, so instantly you will feel the vitality injected into the skin at every use.

 

Is the Age Delaying Cream very greasy, and will it clog my pores?

Absolutely not!  In fact our cream is handmade based on active ingredients with Pentavitin and many anti-aging botanical extracts for deep hydration, generating a moisture reservoir that lasts 72 hours after final application for visibly more moisturized skin without clogging pores or looking greasy on the skin. 

 

 

Eye & Lip Illuminating Serum

 

Do you use Eye & Lip Illuminating Serum before Age Delaying Serum?

Yes!  This serum is Step 3 (after the activating mist); use immediately around the eyes and lips before Step 4 (Age Delaying Serum) for an instant pick-me-up effect, and never look tired again.  Refer to Michelle’s Regime https://www.rareskinfuel.com/pages/michelle’s-regime for the complete daily ritual to keep looking young.

 

Can I use the Serum as a leave-in eye & lip mask?

Absolutely, yes!  In fact, it is suggested to apply a thick layer, especially around the inner corner of your eyes where it is dented from eye bags, and leave it on for 2-3 minutes (when the cream starts to be absorbed into the skin), then pat it in.  The cold-pressed active ingredients will do their work to immediately lift up the tired looking eyes for instant firmness and rejuvenation.

 

Why do I have to use separate skincare products for my eyes & lips?

Even though the skin around the eyes and lips is still skin, it raises the most skincare concern because it is thinner and more delicate compared to the rest of the face.  The eye and lip areas are among the first to show tiredness and signs of aging.  The skin concern is also different from the rest of the face.  Our Eye & Lip Illuminating Serum is created to reduce the look of fine lines, shrink puffiness to tackle daily inflammation, and repair damage and stress, ultimately brightening and illuminating your whole face.  This is why it is suggested to be used before Age Delaying Serum, so these delicate areas of skin are nourished before the rest of the face. 

 

 

Eye & Lip Contouring Cream

 

Do I still need the Eye & Lip Illuminating Serum?

Yes!  Both serum and cream work well together.  Serum targets the specific concern and delivers active ingredients deep into the skin, while cream locks in the moisture and nutrients with 72-hour hydration.  You need both to achieve the optimal result.

 

Do I still need Eye & Lip Contouring Cream after Eye & Lip Illuminating Serum?

Yes!  Both Illuminating Serum and Contouring Cream are designed to be used together for the maximum “Never look tired again” result.  The native Australian extracts from Quandong fruits and Kakadu Plum, together with potent skincare staples like Hyaluronic Acid and Lactobacillus, in the serum takes all the steps needed to brighten your eyes and lips, while Resveratrol is a potent ingredient in the cream that reduces free radical damage and increases collagen and elastin.  Both work together to deliver deep hydration for the skin, filling in wrinkles and fine lines for renewed youthfulness.

Detoxifying Australian Clay Mask

 

 

What is Dual Activating and Two Compound mask?

The two compound mask packages the Clay Powder and Mask Activator separately to guarantee a radically more effective product.  The potency of our powerhouse ingredients does not weaken during shelf time until you connect the nozzles between both packages to activate your mask. Do this once before first-time use, and the mask can be used multiple times within 3-4 weeks after opening.  This package design provides a sealed, clean and hassle-free way of mixing, minimizing the risk of bacterial contamination and extending the shelf life of the natural ingredients.

 

You only mix once; is it a one-time use mask?

No.  A single mix can be stored and used many times in a month.  After mixing the Clay Powder (40g) with Mask Activator (60ml), the mask is at 100 ml volume, which is plenty enough to use it 6-8 times within 3-4 weeks.  Tightly close the cap and store the mask pouch in the refrigerator or below 25 degrees Celsius to ensure the best quality. 

 

Will Detoxifying Clay Mask dry my skin?

Absolutely not.  Our unique Dual Activating Mask is not just any clay mask like those consisting of just clay powder to be mixed with water.  Our Clay Powder Pouch contains not only the  detoxifying powder such as Olive Green Clay and Bentonite Clay, but also harnesses the powerful effects of rich, anti-aging, and regenerative extracts such as Green Tea Matcha Powder, Natural Vitamin E Powder, and Aloe Vera Leaf Extract Powder, just to name a few.  The Refreshing Activator (wet ingredients) packs a punch with Yucca Root, Green Tea, and Gotu Kola Extracts to create a trio of powerful soothing, protecting and stimulating active ingredients – revealing fresh, dewy, and glowing skin. 

 

Do I still need Restoring Australian Clay Mask after Detoxifying Australian Clay Mask?

Yes.  For best results, use the Restoring Australian Clay Mask immediately after using the Detoxifying Mask to obtain added benefits from Ivory Australian Clay and Pastel Pink Australian Clay, and to infuse the skin with moisturizing, soothing and anti-aging minerals for visible, refreshed radiance.  The Nourishing Activator gives the power of other natural ingredients such as Allantoin and Glycerine – one of the most wisely used ingredients in the skincare industry for cell-regenerating, healing and protecting properties on skin.  We also suggest you to use these two masks alternately 2-3 times a week for maintenance.  For more Home-Spa tips, please follow us on Instagram @rareskinfuel.

Will Restoring Mask dry my skin?

Absolutely not.  Our Restoring Australian Clay Mask is designed to be mixed with a very Nourishing Activator which packs a punch with powerful natural ingredients in a rich cream-based texture to soothe, protect skin and stimulate new cell growth.  Your clay mask may start to dry before 10 minutes’ time is up if you have very dry skin, from which the clay mask can absorb moisture faster than from a healthy and normal skin type.  A quick tip is to spray our Activating Mist directly onto the drying mask to rehydrate the mask, lock in the nutrients, and receive the added vitamins from the Activating Mist for optimal results.

 

 

Do I still need Detoxifying Clay Mask before Restoring Australian Clay Mask?

Yes.  For best results, use the Restoring Australian Clay Mask immediately after using the Detoxifying Australian Clay Mask, as the Detoxifying Mask deeply cleanses the skin surface and gently exfoliates dead skin cells. This promotes a clearer skin surface for the Restoring Australian Clay Mask to work its wonders to reverse signs of aging, calm and soothe stressed skin, and increase skin hydration to revive natural skin glow.  Your skin will appreciate these two masking products when you use them together.  We also suggest you to use these two masks alternately 2-3 times a week for maintenance.  For more Home-Spa tips, please follow us on Instagram @rareskinfuel.
