As a guide, our products (body butters) typically have a shelf life of 12-24 months dependent on care and storage of the product. It is commonly accepted though not definitive that these products can remain in good condition beyond 24 months if stored correctly. The key factors that can degrade the products (mainly through oxidation) and therefore largely determine the shelf life of the products are prolonged exposure to oxygen, direct sunlight and heat. Therefore we recommend that to achieve maximum shelf life products should be stored in a cool, dark place with the lid firmly attached to achieve an airtight seal. For the reasons described above and particularly because of the significant effect of the care taken in storing products we are unable to give definitive shelf life/best before dates on our products and where shelf life/best before information is given it is intended as a guide only. In all instances customers should check that they are happy with the quality of a product before use particularly if that product has been in storage for more than a month or may have been exposed to heat, direct sunlight or oxygen during storage.

The user of the products is solely responsible for compliance with all laws and regulations applying to the use of the products.
