Rio Rosa Mosqueta FAQ
The Rio Rosa Mosqueta skincare range is suitable for all skin types. It is a ‘No Nasties’ range so you will not be adding to toxin levels via skincare. There are specific products for the face and the Body Butter is good for moisturising all over.
Skin issues are, however, often an indication of something internal and, since a variety of factors may be involved it would be best to speak with a nutritional therapist or naturopath who can take a full medical history and discuss diet and lifestyle with you. The skin is one avenue for detoxification and ensuring you promote healthy detoxification may be one thing to look at.We recommend you ensure you are well hydrated (via drinking filtered water) and consider using Green Magma which is an excellent nutritive source of chlorophyll. The epigenar® Parent Essential Oil: Blackcurrant Seed Oil capsules are also good for ensuring a balance of omega-3 and omega-6—both important for skin health. Other products in our ranges may also benefit but you need specific individual advice from a healthcare practitioner to know which might be most beneficial for you.

Some products may have a fragrance but that would be due to the natural fragrance from one or more of the ingredients used for some other purpose (moisturising, protecting, etc).

The RRM Cream Cleanser can also remove eye make-up, including waterproof mascara.
Use the exfoliator before the other products. After completing exfoliating and cleaning, apply the eye serum and then moisturiser (Day & Night Cream). The Night Intensive can be used instead of the Day & Night Cream at night (it can also be used in the daytime instead of the Day & Night Cream if wanted).
Rio Health are against animal testing and this is high on our list of priorities with all the products we produce and distribute. When we developed the Rio Rosa Mosqueta products, animal testing was not used. When selecting ingredients, we use, whenever possible, herbal ingredients from organic farming when possible. Ingredients used in Rio Rosa Mosqueta products are animal cruelty free and are not derived from animals so all products are suitable for vegans.
What is tocopheryl acetate which is listed as an ingredient in Rio Rosa Mosqueta Day & Night Cream?
Tocopheryl acetate is a form of vitamin E which is an active ingredient in this product. The tocopheryl acetate in Rio Rosa Mosqueta Day & Night Cream is d-alpha tocopheryl acetate and is of natural origin—from non-GMO soy, sunflower and rapeseed oil.
Does Rio Rosa Mosqueta Rosehip Oil have a smell or aroma?
The product has a normal, oil-like smell. It is not a rose-scent as it is the rosehips that are used to produce the oil, not the flowers. All natural oils have a shelf life (indicated by the symbol on the packaging) which indicates how long the product can be used once opened. After this period, or if the product is not stored properly (in a cool environment, away from light and humidity), it may take on an off-smell in which case it should be discarded and replaced with a new bottle.
