This stuff is awesome! Used it on some irritated areas of my face and it i was instantly soothed and healed. I have sensitive/blemish prone skin and this did not cause even the slightest blackhead or pimple. Also used this on some KP on my legs that had become irritated and it also was markedly improved overnight. It also smells fabulous! Please make giant bottles of this stuff! I can already think of how many uses this will have, even with my kids!!
I have to add a rave for Lavender Recovery Gel. I had a hormonal breakout that I just couldn't leave alone, which of course made it so much more inflamed and irritated. I used the gel for the recommended three days, twice a day, before giving my skin a rest. By the morning of the fourth day, both the initial breakout and the marks from picking at my skin are well at the end of the healing phase. I would estimate that this product accelerated my skin's recovery by two weeks. I'll be purchasing a full-sized bottle with my next order to always have on-hand in case of emergencies. I also used a drop on my toddler's face in the morning and one at night. He had accidentally scratched himself on the nose and it left a pretty nasty gouge. It went from glaringly obvious to a faint pink mark overnight.
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!
