Q7: Why do we say Less is More?
First of all, our products are manufactured using quality ingredients and for quality conscious people. If you use our products, you will realize that they are not runny like other mass produced cheap products.
Therefore, when we created samples sachets of our Hand & Body Wash and Shower Gels, we used a packaging size of 5 ml only because we knew that for each application this small quantity will be ideal. During our sampling trials in Australia, we found out that users were very satisfied with the quantity of the product and enjoyed the whole experience thoroughly.
So technically speaking, a 300 ml bottle of our Shower Gel can last for 2 months for everyday single use*

Q9: What is Cetearyl alcohol?
The Cetearyl alcohol used in Oud Luxury Collection products is from a vegetable source.
Cetearyl alcohol also called cetostearyl alcohol or cetylstearyl is not alcohol in the true sense. It is an emulsifier prepared by combining fatty alcohols that are derived from vegetable oils like palm oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter or Shea butter. It does not involve the process of fermentation. It helps in binding the oils and water in personal care products like shampoos, hair conditioners and facial creams. It has no intoxicating effects as it is not consumable in the original form. It is a solid mass, a wax like substance. Hence it is halal to be used in personal products.
