More Information Regarding Our Light and Bright Serums
Garden of Wisdom has worked very hard to make sure we address issues such as hyper-pigmentation, dark spots, melasma, acne pigmentation, redness, and dull, lifeless skin. We have also worked endlessly to assure all of the products we offer to address these issues are safe for the consumer, and we use natural actives to balance and compliment the skin rather than harsh chemicals and additives.
Method of Application
Apply as a spot treatment on affected areas after cleansing, exfoliating and toning, during the water soluble phase of your skin routine. Use twice a day until you see the effects you desire. Once you have the desired result it is time to begin a maintenance routine. One to two times per week should keep your skin on its toes and clear of hyper-pigmentation.

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.
