• What is organic fermentation, and how is it applied to the products?

    All Whamisa products are infused with organic ferment filtrates derived from the traditional method of fermentation. Fermentation is the key to breaking down large, complex compounds into smaller, simple molecules, allowing ingredients more readily available to be absorbed into the skin. This way, the smaller, simplified nanoparticles can penetrate the skin at a deeper level by amplifying its nutritional benefits. Moreover, during fermentation, it creates new beneficial nutrients for the skin, such as beta-carotene, protein, vitamins, and minerals, and enhances the potency of existing nutrients even further.

  • Are Whamisa products suitable for sensitive skin?

    Our products are generally suitable for sensitive skin. However, since our products are all-natural and organic, we use natural preservatives that may be slightly irritating to someone new to using clean and organic products. In addition to preventing microbial/fungal growth and oxidation, natural preservatives are used to fill in tiny microscopic gaps between oil and water molecules to prevent water, light contamination effectively. For some people, especially if you are a newbie in the clean beauty world, it takes a few days for your skin to get used to it. For any severe adverse reactions, please email us at

Suppose our products are exposed to direct sunlight for a prolonged period. In that case, it may result in a slight change of color, which doesn't affect the shelflife, efficacy, or delivery of the formulation.
