Product Recommendations

 

  1. Can younger people use Arboretum products?

    - Although Arboretum products are made for mature skin (40+), younger people can use some of them too! We recommend the Problem Skin Lotion for acne. The Gentle Herbal Cleanser and Liposomal Toner are great for all skin types.

  2. Help! What do I need for my skincare routine? 

    - Olga is happy to recommend a customized routine depending on your skin type. Email info@arboretum-skincare.net to get started.

  3. Where are Arboretum products made? Who makes them?


    - Olga Goldberger is the founder of Arboretum Skincare. She formulates and makes all the products in small batches in her lab in Newton, MA.

  4. Do Arboretum products have preservatives?

    -Yes. Olga uses natural preservatives called NataPress which is a mixture of different natural substances.

  5. How do Arboretum products mix oil and water without emulsifiers?


    - We believe that people with mature and sensitive skin should be using emulsifier-free products. We use soy-derived phospholipids to mix oil and water in our formulas to prevent damage to the skin barrier. 

  6. Are Arboretum products safe to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding?


    - Absolutely! The only products to avoid would be the Problem Skin Lotion and Glycolic Acid Renewal Gel, as they contain salicylic acid which in high doses may be harmful to pregnant women. The main ingredients to avoid while pregnant are Vitamin A and its derivatives (Retinol, retinoic acid etc), as well as BHAs. 

  7. What are the best products for women over 40?


    - It depends on your skin type. People over 40 often have combination skin and are recommended to avoid heavier products, especially in the T-zone. Consult with Olga if you have questions at info@arboretum-skincare.com

  8. What are the best products for women over 50?


    - People over 50 tend to have dryer skin with signs of aging, like small wrinkles under your eyes and fine lines. Olga recommends using AgelessND as an active anti-aging product every night with the Blue Hydrating mask.

  9. What are the best products for women over 60?


    - People over 50 tend to have dryer skin with signs of aging, like small wrinkles under your eyes and fine lines. Olga recommends using AgelessBoost as an active anti-aging product every night mixed with the Blue Hydrating mask. Use the Glycolic Acid Renewal Gel 3-4 times a week to treat age spots from past sun exposure and even out the skin tone. 

  10. What are the best products for oily, breakout prone skin?


    - The Gentle Cleanser, Liposomal Toner, Glycolic acid Renewal Gel, Herbal Vitamin C Serum, and Hydrating Emulsion are all great to incorporate into your routine.

  11. Are Arboretum products safe for sensitive skin?


    -Arboretum products are geared towards sensitive, mature skin. They are made without parabens or fragrances which tend to irritate sensitive skin. 

  12. Why should I choose Arboretum products to treat my aging skin?


    - Our products contain active anti-aging ingredients that stimulate growth of skin stem cells specifically for mature skin. We recommend using AgelessND and AgelessBoost. Some of our powerful ingredients include Nicotinamide Riboside and Nicotinamide Mononucleotide. 

  13. When will I see results?


    - Most people see smoother skin and diminished pores after 3-4 days of use. 

  14. How often should I use Arboretum skincare products?


    - We recommend having a daily skincare routine for morning and night.
