Epithelialization occurs within 24 hours after an injury and is characterized by the detachment, migration, proliferation, and differentiation of cells at the base of the epidermis along the wound. Another way to put it is that after an injury mitosis increases, therefore cell production increases and those newly formed cells migrate to any exposed dermis and provide a temporary protection. Epithelialization is the second step in wound healing, the first step is inflammation, such as redness and heat, followed by epithelialization, then collagen synthesis, contraction, and remodeling.
Keratinization is a process by which epithelial cells lose their moisture and are replaced by horny tissue
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.
