Since our products are truly all-natural and we do not use any unnatural preservatives at all, our products do have a shelf life of typically 6 months after opening. If our products are kept out of direct sunlight and at room temperature or below, they will stay fresher longer. All of our oil based products are totally preservative free, water based products are formulated with lower PH to prevent bacterial growth, with a combination of Ecocert approved Pentylene Glycol or Sodium Levulinate with Sodium Anisate. These are not classified as a preservative as such, and allows the manufacturer to state preservative free claims for their finished products. The product’s active principle is a blend of compounds found in many plants in nature. We also use natural Vitamin E in some of our products to extend the natural shelf life and keep the oils in their freshest and most potent form.
When is the best time to apply facial oil? Can I wear makeup over facial oil?
We recommend applying our facial oils after cleansing and toning, morning and night. The facial oils can be used alongside or in place of a moisturizer or in combination with the serum. Your face does not need to be completely dry to apply facial oil, in fact, it is helpful and increases fast absorption and spreadability if your face is slightly damp.You can wear makeup over facial oil. Let your skin absorb the oils for 3–5 minutes before applying makeup since the oil does need time to sink in. If your skin feels oily after this, you are using too much facial oil. If your skin feels dry and you want more moisture, you are probably not using enough facial oil. The oil should absorb fully and not leave any greasy/oily feeling at all. Your skin will feel hydrated and soft/smooth after applying the correct amount. Most people need 3-5 drops — please adjust accordingly to your skin’s individual needs. For maximum effect mix the oil with serum to create your own cream.
What order do I apply the skincare products in?
