Garden of Wisdom's Decadent Oat Enriched Cream is decadent, delightful, healing creamy gel is the perfect soothing product to add to your skin care arsenal. It does not contain any waxes or emulsifiers that cause the pores to become block. Containing glutathione does make this gel smell relatively pungent but glutathione is incredibly healing and we do mask the scent gently with an essential oil blend. Oat Beta Glucans are one of the finest ingredients for moisturizing, healing and helping skin that feels itchy and out of sorts.
Method of Application
NOTE: due to the high percentage of glutathione in this cream, the smell is extremely pungent. There is nothing wrong with the cream. Glutathione was discussed in our last newsletter and is one of the best antioxidants available as well as being extraordinarily healing.
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.
