Garden of Wisdom's Pineapple and Wine Exfoliating Gel combines these two powerful ingredients in a gentle and effective formula. This gel is designed to be applied onto the skin, where it works to loosen and remove dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother, and more radiant skin. The formula also includes other skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to help hydrate and soothe the skin. Pineapple is a great natural exfoliant due to its enzyme content, particularly bromelain. This enzyme helps break down dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, making the skin look brighter and smoother. Pineapple is also rich in vitamins A and C, both of which are essential for maintaining healthy skin. Vitamin A helps to regulate oil production and prevent the formation of acne, while vitamin C helps to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals.
Method of ApplicationAfter cleansing, spread a layer of this product onto your skin. Let this "mask" dry for about 15 minutes, and then rinse with warm water until there is no longer any of the gel remaining on your skin. Continue with your routine as normal. In total, one should only exfoliate 1-2 days a week total, or every fourth day.
Shelf Life and Storage Information for Our Products and IngredientsFinished 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.
Co2 Extracts - these should continually be refrigerated.
Butters - we suggest refrigerating our "skincare" butters. You can remove
what you need and keep the rest in the fridge.
Clays - keep in a dry, dark place. Shelf life is at least 2 years.
Herbs - all herbs (whole or ground) should be kept in a dark, cool and
Herbal (liquid) Extracts - these are created using alcohol. The alcohol pulls
the constituents from each herbs - root, trunk, leaves, and flowers. They
have a shelf life of 3-5 years.
They can be kept in the refrigerator (or a dark DRY place)
Other Raw Ingredients - i.e., Sodium PCA, Honeyquat, Oat Beta Glucan, etc.
will all have a different shelf life.
