By reading the ingredients in our products, you will see that we don't add any artificial preservatives whatsoever, using naturally derived materials, organic or wildcrafted botanicals, pure non nano minerals, and essential oils. This means that the shelf life on our goods is not indefinite. We recommend enjoying our water based (hyaluronic acids, etc) products within 6 months after purchase, and one year for our balms, butters, and oil based serums. We strongly suggest storing them in optimum, cool conditions while keeping them clean and air tight. Any product containing vitamin C (from any maker) will have a longer shelf life when kept refrigerated, and should be used within 4-6 months, or until oxidation has occurred which will turn the product orange/red. Discontinue use once this occurs or when any product smell off, like crayons, or rancid.
The Chi will be the highest the younger the potion is. You may notice after some time that the consistency has slightly changed and this is a natural phenomenon due to the ingredients being alive and recrystallizing. Products that contain beeswax, for example, which keeps its cellular memory structure unless overheated, may start to recrystalize and form little beads on the surface that are easily massaged into the skin. This occurs because we don't add any fillers nor do we overheat our products, keeping the Chi and potency as high as possible!
We also only include ingredients that have a longer shelf life on their own, by using clever combinations, so the active ingredients remain. We harvest and make all of our products in small batches so we've a constant fresh supply of goodness flowing through our apothecary. While we do have a few lovely stockists, you can be certain that the products are the freshest when bought directly from us.
