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.

Hydrolyzed Keratin comprising an extensive part of our hair are the living cells keratinocytes, which produce keratin. When the outer layer of keratin is damaged, the hair becomes weak, flaky and unhealthy. Along with environmental pollutants, the use of coloring, bleaching, drying, curling, and ironing the hair will cause damage. Hydrolyzed keratin was found to have almost the same amino acids profile found on the human hair. This allows immediate replacement of cystine. During this mending stage the occurrence of dryness and split ends are reduced significantly. Since keratin is the strongest type of protein for your hair, this process allows your hair to become healthier, stronger, fuller and thicker.
