        Delightful! ...
        I can't tell how well it's working beneath the skin where a wrinkle starts but the eye area looks plumper and the very fine lines are less noticeable. It keeps my face moisturized better than the sunscreen/moisturizer alone. I do the smile test during the end of the day at the office to see how dry my face has gotten every day. Ever since using this oil, the dryness is pretty much gone. Definitely a keeper!

        Shelf Life and Storage Information for Products and Ingredients

        Finished products generally don't need to be refrigerated as they are preserved, but you can refrigerate them to extend shelf life. Shelf life is 9 - 12 months

        Sample sizes do have a shorter shelf life (generally 3-6 months and items in jars can dry up quicker than this if the lid is not tightened well enough (except our vitamin C serums - use within 90 days).

        Please try to keep out of high humidity or heat if possible! Store out of direct light and in dark cabinet if possible also!

        Exfoliating Acid products will last 1 year.

        The only thing we don't suggest refrigerating is the mandelic or salicylic acid serums as those can crystallize in the refrigerator and not go back to their normal state even if you warm them up.

        Additional Items Requiring Refrigeration

        Hydrosols - Take out 1/2 oz to 1 oz in a separate spray bottle from your original container and keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator!

        Carrier Oils - Generally you can refrigerate ALL carrier oils, they will solidify in some cases. This is FINE all you have to do is take it out warm it up at room temp and it will be liquid again!
        There are some oils that have a super long shelf life like coconut oil for instance! That does not need to be refrigerated, but it cannot hurt it either!

        Essential Oils - Essential oils are best stored in a cool dark place.

        Co2 Oils - These should always be refrigerated.

        Butters - We suggest refrigerating our skincare butters. You can take out what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
