ABOUT THE RANGE
Is your product actually healthy?
Well, with all the bull out there, it’s a valid question. If you take a look at other ‘health drinks’ to see how much sugar they have, you’d be very surprised. We don’t sacrifice one benefit to deliver another.
And the answer is: you bet your arse. All our products start where most health products end: our whole range is low sugar and all natural. On top of that, they contain Fibersol-2 which slows the uptake of sugar in the blood and they all have Ezonginol, one of nature’s most powerful anti-oxidants. From there, each variant has specific ingredients to deliver a specific functional benefit.
How much sugar is in No Ugly?
All our drinks are “low sugar” with less than 2.5 grams of sugar per 100mL. If you take a look at other ‘health drinks’ to see how much sugar they have, you’d be very surprised. We don’t sacrifice one benefit to deliver another.
What’s that stuff at the bottom of the bottle?
The shortest answer – it’s some of the stuff that makes No Ugly do what it says on the bottle. But don’t worry, you don’t taste it or even feel it. Just turn the bottle over a few times (don’t shake it as it’s sparkling ;) and you’re all set to get back to gorgeous.
Are your products Vegan?
Detox, Hydrate and Focus are all Vegan suitable. Booyah.
Immunity, Gut, Skin and Sleep, unfortunately, are not. The ingredients that make them work so well make them non-vegan suitable.
Although sustainably sourced, No Ugly Skin has marine (fish) collagen because it’s the best type of collagen out there and makes the biggest difference to your skin.
No Ugly Immunity has mānuka honey (derived from bees) and Vitamin D (which is derived from sheep lanolin). The anti-microbial powers of the mānuka honey and the ability of Vitamin D to help keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy, are part of what No Ugly Immunity so good.
No Ugly Sleep has Vitamin D (which is derived from sheep lanolin)
No Ugly Gut has a natural cranberry flavour which is on a (whey) ethanol solvent base.
Are your products gluten free?
Yes, all our products are gluten free.
Are your products organic?
No Ugly products are as close to organic as you can get. Because we’ve got a preservative to keep us shelf stable and our ingredients need to deliver, we can’t actually claim organic. But lucky for you that preservative is made from a ‘nature-identical’ compound and it’s why you’ll find us in some hard-core organic shops. If it’s good enough for them…(I’ll need you to finish this sentence ;)
Why do you use Potassium Sorbate as a preservative?
We use potassium sorbate because it is the preferred preservative choice for our beverage profile, that being the profile of the pH, brix, carbonation, acidity and processing conditions.
In nature it can be found in plants and fruits, which is great and is the salt of sorbic acid. Unfortunately, it's not commercially available as a natural raw material, so we purchase it from a commercial supplier who makes it to mimic how it is found in nature, (nature-identical).
This is the best choice for our drinks, and because of all the amazing electrolytes and minerals in our product and how this affects the pH, the potassium sorbate is the best option for No Ugly.
Do your products contain artificial flavours or colours?
No, all our flavours are natural. And the colours are derived from the fruit juice in the drinks.
Can I have these drinks when pregnant?
You should avoid Skin, Sleep and Focus when pregnant or breastfeeding.
Sleep contains passionflower which is a potent botanical extract and Focus contains 35mg of caffeine per bottle.
Skin contains marine collagen and is therefore best to check with your healthcare professional first.
While there are no known major safety concerns around the ingredients in Detox, Hydrate, Gut and Immunity, it is always best to check in with your doctor, midwife or healthcare professional beforehand during pregnancy and lactation.
Are these drinks ok for children?
Sleep and Focus shouldn’t be consumed by children. They’re too ‘wee’.
Sleep contains a high dosage of magnesium which is too high for children under the age of 14. Focus contains caffeine which shouldn’t be consumed by children.
While there are no known major safety concerns around the ingredients in Detox, Hydrate, Gut, Immunity and Skin, we recommend consulting with your doctor or healthcare professional before giving children our drinks.
Where should I store my drinks?
Drinks can be stored in the pantry or in ambient conditions away from direct sunlight, but are best to be consumed chilled. So if you want them ready to-go, pop ‘em in the fridge ❄️
How many calories in a bottle?
There only a wee (insert number) calories in No Ugly (insert variant). Each on is different, check out the label on the bottle or on our website at nougly.com.au. Why so low? Well, one of the reasons is they’re all low sugar ;)
