"My product seems to have expired - am I reading it wrong?"Updated a year ago

The products you received show the date of manufacture. We are still transitioning our labels to be more clear about each product's expiration date, so we do apologize for any confusion.

Generally, all of our products have a shelf life of about 1 ½ to 2 years. However, once you open a product (just like food), you need to begin to use it. Our products are COMPLETELY FREE from preservatives, stabilizers, or chemical concoctions that are so often used to keep things shelf-stable. For this reason, they should be stored at or below room temperature: below 72°F, but not below 40°F. If temperatures regularly exceed these conditions, it is best to store these products in your refrigerator (especially the creams). If you are ordering extra products that will not be used right away or may be kept for future use, storing them in the refrigerator is strongly advised for prolonged shelf life.
