We only use natural preservatives in our products – no chemicals – this means they are free from Sulphates, Parabens and PEGs. In fact, some of them you could probably eat, although we wouldn’t advise it as we doubt they’d taste great. However, it’s important to note that whilst they don’t need to be kept in the fridge, they do have a shelf life. Unopened they are safe from microbes and baddies for up to 1 year, but once you’ve opened them we recommend that you use them within six months (but to be honest they smell so good we doubt they’ll hang around that long).
Follow these three handy hints to get the most out of your skincare:
1) Keep your lid on.
As our products contain therapeutic essential oils you want to preserve the very best of what’s in your bottle. Essential oils degrade with the air over time, so if you leave the lid off your product for a prolonged period their benefit will lessen.
2) Keep cool baby.
We package our products in amber bottles because they filter out both blue and ultraviolet light helping to protect your skincare from harmful rays. However, to get the maximum shelf life don’t leave it in direct sunlight as this will damage and prematurely age the delicate oils – a cool, dark cupboard is best.
3) Quit splashing around.
Whilst we use air tight packaging and natural ingredients that provide protection from bacterial growth, it is best to try and avoid getting water into the product.
