FAQ

Where can I shop Versed?

Shop Versed in-store and online at Target and Riley Rose and online at Revolve.com.

Do you ship internationally?

Our amazing friends at Revolve do! Target ships to Canada and Mexico too.

Where can I buy your headbands?

Our headbands aren't for sale right now, but stay tuned and follow us @versed for updates, giveaways, and more headband opportunities.

How can I try your product?

We have samples coming to our site this fall. In the meantime, you can ask a Target Beauty Concierge team member for a sample throughout the month of July 2019. If you live near a Riley Rose store, you can always have the staff there make you a sample.

What do you recommend for my skin type?

We get it—skincare can be confusing. That’s why we developed a tool to eliminate some of that guesswork, our Skin Decoder. It’s a nine-question quiz for personalized product and regimen recommendations. We’ll ask you about your skin, your lifestyle, and your concerns and give you the download on what your skin needs.

Are your products natural?

We’re a clean a brand, meaning we use natural ingredients as well as lab-created ingredients. While there are no regulated definitions of “clean beauty” or “natural beauty,” we define our clean product philosophy as focusing on the good (ingredients that are safe and effective, whether natural or synthetic) and cutting the bad (toxic or questionable ingredients that cause more harm than good—both natural and synthetic ingredients are included here as well). If you want more information about natural vs. organic vs. clean, check out our blog post on the topic where we, along with the help of an esthetician and product formulator, break it down.

Are you vegan and cruelty-free?

Versed is proudly vegan and cruelty-free (we love our furry friends!) and certified by the great folks at Leaping Bunny.

Are you paraben- and sulfate-free?

Yes, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re free of parabens, sulfates, and over 1300 toxins and questionable ingredients. Check out more on our clean philosophy and peep our no-list on our About page.

Do any of your products contain soy or soy derivatives?

None of our products contain soy derivatives, however, if you’re avoiding soy, skip our Keep It Supple Body Oil and the Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil. Those two products do have small amounts of soybean oil.

Do any of your products contain nuts?

Most of our products are nut-free. These five contain a form of nut oil: Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm, Silk Slip Conditioning Lip Oil, Just Breathe Clarifying Serum, Keep It Supple Body Oil, and Nix It Complexion Solution.

Are your products gluten-free?

Yes, all of our other products are gluten-free except for Dew Point Moisturizing Gel-Cream.

Are your products safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

As always, your doctor should be your first stop. But we recommend skipping The Shortcut Overnight Facial Peel, which contains a form of retinol and AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids), and On the Rise Firming Serum, which contains a form of retinol. The rest of our products are safe for use after consulting your physician.

Where can I find the percentage of your active ingredients?

We focus on the total formula—the combination of ingredients and how they work together. We don’t want people to get hung up on percentages because the optimal level (the concentration that is safe and effective for skin) can vary a lot based on what the ingredient is and how it's used. Some ingredients are effective at concentrations into the double digits. Whereas other ingredients, like retinol, would be harmful and irritating to skin at levels less than half that concentration. We promise to only call out and use ingredients in the formula at levels shown to do something for your skin, and we never sprinkle in an ingredient just to say it's there—no so-called “marketing ingredients” here.

Is your packaging eco-friendly?

We're committed to helping reduce the flow of packaging waste to landfills. To do so, we use recyclable materials (we’re 92% recyclable, to be exact) and alternative packaging made from 97% less material than traditional designs—all that while still keeping our prices accessible to most people. To help ensure as much of our packaging as possible stays out of landfills, you can find instructions on how to recycle each item on its product page under the “Good to Know” tab.

In addition to what we're currently doing, we're also committed to deepening our positive impact as we grow. If you ever have any suggestions, please shoot them over to us at hello@versedskin.com.

What should I do with my empties?

Check with your local curbside recycling program to find out what type of recyclables they pick up, or you can always bring your items to the recycling station located at the front of every Target store. The store accepts all plastics and will make sure your empties are recycled properly.

Are your products ethically made?

Thank you for interest in ethical practices (we share that too). We've worked hard to ensure our entire process is held to high ethical and environmental standards. Our manufacturer selection process includes vetting partners based on the quality of their formulas, their ability to produce at accessible prices, and their commitment to a comprehensive set of good manufacturing practices (GMPs). Our GMPs include requirements specific to product safety, safe and fair labor, and environmental stewardship.

All of our products are also vegan, certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny, and formulated to the European Union's extensive clean ingredients standards.

Do you have an ambassador program?

I would love to get more involved with the brand. Do you ever need product testers?

We’re always looking for people to co-create with and vet our formulas.
