Variations Between Products

The Right Products for You

We have endeavoured to make your shopping experience with us easier and have designed The Umuhle Apothecary Questionnaire to help you select the right product for your skin concerns. Alternatively, you may wish to email us at for further guidance.


We understand skin sensitivity might be a concern for some of our customers, and while sensitivities or mild reactions to organic and natural ingredients are rare, they may possibly occur. We are transparent with our customers and have listed each ingredient in our products to help you identify if that product is right for you. Please note that skin is usually more sensitive during hormonal changes, seasonal variations and while taking some medications. We recommend a 24-hour patch-test of our products on your skin prior to use.
