Because we use the freshest, most pure ingredients found in nature, our products are best if used within 6 months of purchase.
OUR PRODUCTS WANT TO BE TREATED LIKE FRUIT AND VEGGIES
Just like fresh organic fruit and veggies, our products are not laced with preservatives or laboratory created ingredients that make it last for years (like the old Twinkie experiment). The internet is filled with products like that. We aren’t that kind of company.
Part of what makes our products so great is that we add only ingredients that soothe, nourish, & protect your skin; no fillers of any kind. You see, most products have water as the primary ingredient (meaning: has the largest quantity). Companies dilute, I mean mix water and emulsifying WAXES to suspend the oil molecules in the water for a creamy consistency.
Why pay for water (which is virtually free) in skin care? Drink it up instead. Learn more here .
HOW TO STORE
Because of the nature of the ingredients we use, the consistency of it will change based on the temperature in which it is stored. This is a way of proving we don’t use fancy tactics of suspension.
We recommend storing between 65 -80 degrees. If stored below 70 degrees some products will be creamier, if it is stored above 70 degrees, some will be in a liquid state based on the ingredients. Raw shea butter (found in RENEW, RESTORE & HAND) has a melting point of 89 degrees while coconut oil (not the fractioned kind but full-of-nutrient kind) has a melting point of 78 degrees.
MELTING DURING SHIPMENT AND FEELING GRAINY
Sometimes you may notice a “grainy” feel to our products. It is just our fresh ingredients waiting to be melted by the warmth of your skin. This will in no way effect the purity of the products you will enjoy. Because raw shea butter and coconut oil is solid at room temperature, when exposed to cooler temps below 65 (or left in your car in winter) it can become very hard but melt when stored in a warm place. It's assurance that we don't add fillers nor do we remove the parts of ingredients that become solid. Did you know companies do that?
Should your superfood for skin become liquid (in shipment or otherwise) and you prefer a creamier consistency, place in a sink or bowl of very warm water until completely melted, put in your fridge until solid, and store in the place you will use it most.
