Garden of Wisdom's Conditioning Cream Cleanser contains moisturizing ingredients like ceramides, oat protein, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin. These ingredients help hydrate the skin while cleansing, which is essential for managing eczema, as dry skin can trigger or worsen eczema symptoms. Individuals with eczema may have different sensitivities and preferences. Make sure to check our ingredients to make sure you do not have any issues with them. For eczema-prone skin, it's crucial to opt for a cleanser product formulated to gently clean the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. This is crucial for individuals with eczema, as their skin barrier is often compromised, and harsh cleansers can exacerbate dryness and irritation.
The symptoms of Eczema can vary from person to person, but common signs include dry, itchy, and inflamed patches of skin. These patches can appear anywhere on the body but are most commonly found on the face, hands, elbows, and knees. Scratching the affected areas can worsen the condition and may lead to infections.
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 their shelf life. The shelf life for most products is 9-12 months. Vitamin C Serum(s) and VitaResurface products should continually be refrigerated to extend their shelf life.
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 for our Vitamin C Serums - use within 90 days).
direct light and in a dark cabinet when possible.
Exfoliating Acid products have a shelf life of 9-12 months. The only things we don't suggest refrigerating are the Mandelic Acid Serums or Salicylic Acid Serums, as they can crystallize in the refrigerator. If this happens, you can set the product into a hot water bath to see if the crystals will dissolve.
Additional Items That Require Refrigeration and/or Kept in the Dark
Hydrosols - remove 1 ounce of hydrosol and add it into a separate, sterilized spray bottle and spritzer. Keep the larger bottle in the refrigerator.
Carrier Oils - generally, you can refrigerate all carrier oils, although some very rich oils will solidify. This is fine. All you have to do is take it out, warm it up at room temperature and it should liquefy. If not, set the bottle in a hot water bath and occasionally shake the bottle, which will hopefully turn into a liquid.
^There are some oils with a super long shelf life, like Coconut Cream and Jojoba Oil.
Refrigeration is not necessary, but it surely won't hurt.
Essential Oils - essential oils are best stored in a cool, dark place.
