Frequently Asked Questions

How do I create my Shelf Health Report?

Glad you asked! 3 simple steps:

1. Open the app (available on iOS and Android) and click on the ‘Create your report’ button
2. Start scanning your products!
3. Press ‘Send me my report’, we’ll send you an email to let you know when it’s ready (usually within a couple of minutes). Just follow the link in the email and ta da! There’s your report.

Any products which we don’t have in our database, just scan & send to our experts (follow the onscreen instructions). We’ll get to work straight away to uncover the truth of what’s really going on in your products.

You can access your report anytime though by heading to ‘My Shelf’.

How do I find out about information for just one product and not my entire Shelf?
We’ve made it super easy to find information about individual products. Using the app, just scan the barcode of the item you want to find out about.

1. Tap the ‘Scan’ icon on the bottom toolbar.
2. Point your camera on your phone at the barcode on your product – you might need to keep steady – take a picture of the barcode.
3. Done! Your product should now appear on your phone with all the information you need to start making informed decisions about your skincare choices!

What happens when I scan a product and there is no product information available?
Congratulations! You’ve helped us find a product that we haven’t seen before. Rest assured, once you send it to us (just follow the onscreen instructions) we’ll make sure that we unearth what’s going on in that bottle of yours. We’ll send you an email to let you know when our experts have analysed it and it’s ready for you to view.
I don’t have a barcode on my product, what do I do?
We’re working on a solution for it. The ability to just take a picture of your product, will be available soon!
