Are all your products natural?
Indeed, they are! We will never use harsh synthetic chemicals and controversial ingredients. Our products are free from sulphates, parabens, artificial fragrance, SLS and silicones. We choose only ingredients that bring a benefit to you selecting natural ingredients which will leave your hair smelling, feeling and looking good! We don’t waste space with ingredients that don’t need to be there: all of our ingredients are active ingredients!
I have sensitive skin can I still use your products and are they allergy free?
One of the reason's we started is that Rachael is allergic to everything! We take pride in the fact that our whole team and all our families use Afrocenchix. From the babies to the grown ups. All of our products are natural and specially formulated to be super gentle, even for the most sensitive skin types. Our formal testing processes deemed our entire line safe for adults and children and we take allergen safety incredibly seriously. We recognise that your body is unique and it's impossible to guarantee any one ingredient or product to be completely allergy-free for everyone. If you have sensitive skin we recommend that you do a patch test on your wrist, inner elbow or behind your ear, when using any of our products for the first time.
Are your products vegan?
Yes, all our products are certified vegan.
Can I use your products on my newborn baby?
Our products are safe for the whole family, although we tend to avoid using oil-based products such as Seal and Soothe on babies and toddlers as they are more sensitive to essential oils. We recommend using our oils (Soothe and Seal) on children that are 2 and over. To seal in moisture we recommend using olive oil or coconut oil for children below ages 2.
Water based products such as Swish, Sheen and Smooth work wonderfully on children all ages.
Where and how are your products made?
We manufacture our own products. This means that all of our products are hand made in batches from an approved premises. We produce our goods in accordance with EU law and in line with Good Manufacturing Practice standards.
How do you know your products are safe?
We work with a formulations scientist to ensure our products will bring you the maximum possible benefit. Anything you buy from us has undergone both internal and external testing for stability, purpose and safety. We work in accordance with EU REGULATION 1223/2009 (effective as of 11 July 2013) and Good Manufacturing Practice standards. We will only ever provide safe and effective products that we love using on ourselves!
Do your products contain parabens, silicones, sulphates and other harsh chemicals?
We don’t use DMDM hydantoin, PEGs, silicones, mineral oil, sodium polyacrylate, SLS, SLES, DEA, phthalate, parabens, lanolin, artificial fragrances, fillers or any other harsh chemicals in our hair products.
Is your packaging recyclable?
Our shipping boxes and packaging are both 100% biodegradable so pop it in your compost or in with your food waste. The packing nuts we use are also starch-based and biodegradable too!
We care about the planet and we’re always working on making our company even more ethical & sustainable.

How much is shipping?
