Frequently Asked Questions

Q. I have heard of witch hazel, but what do you use it for?

A. Witch hazel has a number of uses for skincare including:

  • Removes excess oils and impurities normalizing your skin's moisture balance
  • Cleans and Tones the skin
  • Refines and reduces the appearance of large pores
  • Removes traces of makeup
and because Humphreys Witch Hazel is all-natural, it is the most gentle formulation available!

Q. How can Humphreys Witch Hazel be all-natural if it contains alcohol?

A. Unlike other astringent products that contain high levels of either synthetic alcohol or isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol), our products contain only natural alcohol derived from grain. This ingredient is used in limited quantities as a natural preservative.

Q. Are any of your products tested on animals?

A. No, we do not test our products on animals. At Humphreys Pharmacal animal testing is against our company philosophy. We produce the gentlest products from the finest ingredients available.

Q. What is the difference between Humphreys Witch Hazel and other facial astringents and/or toners?

A. Humphreys Witch Hazel an all-natural astringent cleanser for facial care. Humphreys combines natural extracts of the Witch Hazel plant in this refreshing formulation to gently cleanse and condition your skin without over drying. What makes Humphreys different is the all-natural extracts in our cleansing astringent clean deep without disturbing your skin's natural moisture balance. Other astringent products can strip your skin of essential moisture, causing your skin to become dry, flaky and irritated. When your skin reaches this point, it could overproduce oils to compensate for the dryness, clogging pores and prolonging the very situation you were trying to correct.
