Alavati

FAQ'S

What are Alavati Products?

Alavati products are unique patented formulas that convert essential oils into innovative creamed oils that conquer dry, wrinkled, crepe-paper skin. These revolutionary natural combinations of lipids and nutrients have emollient properties that protect, replenish and nourish the skin, leaving the skin moist and radiant. Alavati products are one of the most effective skin care treatments on the market today and the first and only all-natural creamed oils.


How does Alavati work?

As we age, our bodies stop producing the oils that are essential to youthful skin.  As this occurs, the skin on your face, neck and body begins to look dry and crepey. Alavati creamed oils will return the youthful glow that oils provide to your skin. Alavati's unique formulation of antioxidants and nutrients is quickly and deeply absorbed into your skin leaving it rejuvenated, revitalized, and youthful.  Consistent use of Alavati conquers the problem of age defining, dry, wrinkled, crepe-paper skin.

 

How is Alavati different from other anti-aging creams?

Most anti-aging creams on the market today are water based and contain chemicals and preservatives. Shortly after application of these water based creams the water evaporates leaving only chemicals and preservatives on your skin. These chemicals and preservatives cannot be utilized by human cells because they are foreign to the human body. Thus, water based creams containing chemicals and preservatives do not nourish your skin cells and can even be harmful to your skin. Alavati’s creamed oils are all natural formulations.  They are not water based and contain no harmful chemicals or preservatives.  Therefore, Alavati’s creamed oils are easily and gently absorbed into your skin, nourishing your skin cells and speeding the formulation of new skin cells.

 

Who should use Alavati?

Everyone and anyone who has dry, wrinkled crepe paper skin will see positive results from the use of Alavati creamed oils.  People who have had stress to the skin, due to artificial causes such as surgery, burns, scars and bruising, as well as people who suffer from skin diseases that cause dryness, and flaking of the skin will all benefit from use of Alavati creamed oils. Alavati creamed oils are the best anti-aging products for people of all skin types and ages.  Everyone should use Alavati.  

 

How long does it take to see results?

On average we find that it takes about two to three weeks to start to see some results, and about three to four months for full results. It is a cumulative effect and takes time. It does not work overnight. Although we have had some clients tell us that they do see results right away this is not typically the case.

 

What is the difference between the Day Cream, Night Cream, Eye Cream and Body Repair Cream?

-Alavati Day Cream is specifically formulated for the face and neck.  It is a light moisturizer for daytime use, great under makeup and sunscreen.

-Alavati Night Cream is a powerful antioxidant cream that is specifically formulated for the face and neck. Its intense formulation containing super red palm olein, restores and replenishes your skin while you sleep. Alavati Night Cream is rich in antioxidants and if your skin is extra dry and crepey it can be used twice a day.

-Alavati Eye Cream is a powerful antioxidant eye cream designed to prevent and conquer fine lines, crow’s feet and puffiness around the delicate eye area.

-Alavati Body Repair Cream is specifically designed for body use.  It is a bit heavier formulation that combats the crepey texture skin on the arms, thighs, décolleté, and body, deeply penetrating the skin without clogging the pores.  Packed full of nutrients and vitamins, Alavati Body Repair Cream improves the skin’s elasticity, encouraging new cell growth while preventing further signs of aging.

 

How often should I Use Alavati Creams?

We recommend you use the Body Repair Cream, everyday, twice a day to start.  Once you start to see results, you can use it once a day if you like. 

If you have purchased the Day Cream and the Night Cream together, we recommend you use the Day Cream in the morning and the Night Cream at night.  If you have only purchased one of these products, we recommend you use it twice a day to begin, once you start to see results you can use once a day if you like.

 

Does Alavati absorb into the skin?

Yes, Alavati has been tested by dermatologists and is absorbed layers deep into the skin.

 

How do I apply Alavati?

First cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser and pat dry. Since the creams are made of pure oils, you only need to apply a small amount of your Alavati product to clean, dry skin in an upward motion. Massage thoroughly into the crepey, damaged areas of your face, neck and body as desired during the day and at night before you go to bed. If you are feeling oily after you have applied the product, you may have used too much.  Remember these are creamed oils and a little bit goes a long way. If you are feeling oily wipe off excess product and apply less next time. Use sparingly. You can use the products in target areas or you can use all over the body for some extra self care.

 

Will Alavati get rid of my crepe paper skin permanently?

Probably not, since as you age you stop producing the body oils that you used to produce when you were younger, this is an ongoing process. Alavati works to put the oils back into your skin layers deep, replenishing the oils you have lost over time. Once you receive your desired results some clients decide to cut back on the usage, but most elect to keep on using it daily because they still need the moisturizing effects. 

 

How long will a jar last?

On average a jar of Alavati will last 2 to 3 months if you are using it in targeted areas. If you are using Alavati products from head to toe they will usually last around 1 to 2 months.

 

Will Alavati clog my pores?

No, the products have been tested by dermatologists and are non-comedogenic, they will not clog the pores.

 

What is in Alavati?

Alavati products are made from pure natural oils. The most powerful ingredient in Alavati is the Red Palm Super Olein – a strong Tocotrienol antioxidant. (See individual product pages for specific products ingredients).

Alavati products are clean and natural. There are no man made chemicals, preservatives, fragrance or parabens in the products.

 

I have heard that palm oil production is destroying the rainforests, why would you still use palm oil in your products?

It is sadly true that much of the worlds Palm Oil comes from unsustainable sources. However, we have spent years researching and sourcing our own certified sustainable Palm Oil. We have gone through the extensive process to ensure that the Palm Oil we put in our products has not been produced in a way that is detrimental to the environment from which it comes. 

 

Why are Tocotrienols important?

Tocotrienols, when applied topically or through diet, have been shown to accumulate in the skin and protect the skin tissue against the sun's UV induced oxidative stress, skin damage and aging. Tocotrienols natural to Alavati's golden palm are one of nature's best providers of Vitamin E and antioxidants.

 

Does Alavati have a fragrance or smell?

No, Alavati products are fragrance free.

 

Is Alavati Organic?

Is Alavati safe?

Yes, Alavati's patented creamed oils were developed after years of scientific research. They have been dermatologist tested and approved. Our scientists have taken the powerful Red Palm Super Olein and combined it with essential oils creating natural creamed oils that stabilize the skin against oxidative deterioration.

 

Why does my Alavati Cream sometimes change its consistency?

Alavati creamed oils do not act like any other skin creams. Since they are natural and contain no additives, preservatives or chemicals, their appearance and consistency may naturally change due to the environment in which they are kept.  In a cold environment you may experience a slight hardening or see tiny palm crystals form. In a very warm environment you may experience a softening to your creams. This is a natural result of a natural product. Alavati creams are equally effective whether in a liquid, solid, creamy or crystalline form. Consistency can be controlled by cooling or warming, giving you a creamed oil that is uniquely yours.  The creams will keep their original consistency if kept at room temperature.

 

I have oily skin, should I use Alavati?

Alavati creamed oils are noncomedogenic, they will not cause an outbreak of acne. Alavati products are appropriate for anyone who suffers from wrinkled crepe paper skin.
