Frequently Asked Questions About TONIK

Q: What is the percentage of salicylic acid in TONIK?    A:  Individual batches and bottles average 1.25%.

Q:  Alcohol is one of the first three ingredients listed in TONIK.  Will alcohol dry out your hair, skin, and scalp? A:   There are many types of alcohol. Some are made from petrochemicals (isopropyl), and some are made from coconuts (cetyl). Some are very drying, and some are amazing moisturizers. The alcohol used in TONIK is ethyl alcohol–or more specifically it is organic sugar cane alcohol: it does not dry and it does not moisturize. It actually makes the skin more permeable which is great with our products, but can be bad news if it’s in something with bad ingredients. The main reason we use it in many of our products is that when we started, we had to go “pre-synthetic chemical,” seeking out Old World preservative systems. Alcohol has been used for centuries as a preservative, but we step it up and make it a tincture. Take BALM and TONIK for instance, both made with an organic blueberry tincture. Tinctures are like a super tea, actually 1,000 time stronger than regular tea with water. So the Tincture in BALM and TONIK preserves the product and when you use it on your skin it delivers a massive dose of organic anti-oxidants. Ethyl alcohol is rated a 2 on EWG and, if we are being honest, the reason it is higher than a 0 is because it’s not good for you if you drink it. We don’t suggest anyone drink our products. According to our TONIK lab reports, alcohol constitutes less than 5% by volume.

Q: Can I use TONIK on my face?    A:  We do not recommend TONIK on your face at full strength, especially your lips and eyelids. To try it on your face, we would cut TONIK with water by one-half, avoid eyes and lips, and do a small patch test.

    First of all, I’d like to just say that Tonik is a heaven sent, miracle worker. Not only does the fragrance smell amazing, but you can actually feel it work ! And it really does work well !! Im a full time hairstylist and before introducing products to my clients, I like to try them out first. Im very picky when it comes to product lines but Cult and King has won me over ! My boyfriend and I both use Tonik. He’s notice a significant amount of regrowth in both his hair and facial hair. For myself, I’ve noticed a good amount of regrowth and my hair feels a lot more healthy since incorporating this to the rest of my routine. Will definitely be purchasing more for myself, my boyfriend and my clients ! This stuffs amazing !

    I almost didn’t order Tonik because I tend to be on the minimalist side in terms of hair and skin products. I’m thrilled that I did give it a try and will absolutely be buying refills. I have always had red bumps and acne on my scalp which stay hidden by my long hair but feel uncomfortable. After using Tonik for a month or so, my scalp has completely cleared up. The tingling was a bit scary the first time I used it, but now I look forward to the tingle that tells me it is working. And the smell can’t be beat! I am not sure if Tonik has stimulated hair regrowth but I wouldn’t be surprised. Trying to find a gentle way to suggest it to my balding dad…

    I use this in conjunction with the pomade and setspray; see my pomade review. On days I don’t shampoo, i just spray this on my wet hair after the shower, since there is already pomade in there from the previous day. i add a little more pomade if necessary, and style accordingly.
    Love the smell. Love the way it makes my scalp tingle. My wife loves the smell, as well. I’ve also used this with only the setspray, and it works great. Will continue buying these products, and hoping they don’t stop making them!

    In sixth grade we were learning to use the microscope. My lab partner, Miranda, turned to me and said that she wanted to know what dandruff looked like under the microscope. My insides sunk and I felt so small. I have struggled with a dry scalp for the majority of my life. Some of it may have been due to not properly washing products and shampoo out of my hair. However, after discovering Tonik, for the first time in forever, I am completely flake free. My scalp has never been happier or healthier. I am fragrance sensitive, and so the fact that the fragrance comes from natural sources and not chemicals makes it safe for me. No headache from fragrance. Healthy scalp. Beautiful bottle. All the stars.

  5. Anastasia Greer

    I love this so damn much. I recently purchased through Vacation Club in Portland and my husband I are obsessed! The scent is magical and I seriously dream of having a roll on scent with the same smell (!!!!). Will buy forever.

    Five Stars!!! My wonderful stylist turned me onto this product when I asked for help with my dry, irritated scalp regardless of the use of gentle products. At first I thought the scent of the Tonik was a little strong but after about one week of use my brain literally craved the earthy, soulful scent. I noticed a drastic improvement in the flakiness of my scalp in about the same amount of time. I wash my hair 2-3 times per week and give my scalp a good spray while my hair is still damp. It is light enough that it does not diminish volume or feel like it changes the texture of my hair, and I do not have to wash any more frequently. The bottle lasts a very long time for me.

    Love love love love.
    Never using anything else.
    My hair: curly, coarse, thin/fine, unruly for the most part. I don’t wash much, and brush with a natural bristle brush daily. Air dry, never use hot tools.
    It’s like I have a crush on this stuff. I can’t stop talking about it. I walk past the bathroom and open the cupboard door just to look at it lovingly. I use it between washes, and add a little to my brushing routine to help encourage a happy scalp.
    I received it right after my regular wash, and I tried it out right away.
    WOW. It’s like my scalp sighed happily. Tingly, lovely smelling, and pleasant texture. My fiance said my hair looked very “happy” that night, and he keeps playing with my hair since. :o)
    Also bought the WASH bar and used this after washing today – already can say it’s a match made in Paradise.

    Tonik is a multitasker.

    I got this not really knowing what problem I was trying to solve, but after using it a few months now it really has been great. I have always had an oily, flaky scalp with occasional breakouts, but not really dandruff. Dandruff shampoo has never helped. I didn’t really think Tonik would help with the flakiness and had no expectation that it would, but it has. It has helped so much. My scalp is noticeably less oily and less flaky. It seriously feels so much healthier and neutral. I am able to wash my hair less frequently since my scalp is less oily. I am also very happy with the light texturizing/defining it does with my curly hair.

    Hair Type: About a 3A. Long (hip length).
    I wash about once per week.

    I spray on my scalp and through damp hair. Then use for refreshes on days I don’t wash. I will also mix Tonik with Jelly when I want to add some volume.

    Half-Strength (with water added):
    *Please note this is my personal use and experience. C+K does not recommend using Tonik in this way.*
    I was so happy with how healthy my scalp feels that I decided to try it half strength on my armpits to help control BO and it has helped. I now spray half-strength Tonik on my pits, let it dry, then apply deodorant. Somedays I will just use half-strength Tonik as my deodorant and do a touch-up spritz during the day, as needed. I got one of the limited edition clear bottles to use for my half-strength Tonik mix.
