HOW TO tell if your face oil is fresh
Oxidized face oils are definitely not something you want to apply on your skin, as they are full of free radicals that damage the skin causing premature ageing!
Face oils are generally more expensive than face creams because they do not contain any water and with a higher percentage of plant ingredients, they achieve more rapid results. However, formulating face oils that are both highly effective and remain stable requires a level of science.
The best way to ensure your face oil is fresh is to use your senses…
Fresh oils have a smooth and earthy scent on the nose. If your face oil smells pungent, it’s probably bad!
Oxidized oils lack color. Fresh organic oils have a depth of color resembling the plant they stem from, for example avocado is a lovely green color, argan is sunshine yellow and rosehip a deep orange If your oil is colorless, it’s probably rancid.
HOW WE keep our face oils fresh
After buying our oils we add natural vitamin E from sunflower oil and high percentages of potent antioxidants to prolong the shelf life, keeping them fresher for longer.
We add only CO2 botanical extracts because they are pure and gentle without the use of oxygen, heat or solvents in their extraction.
We store our oils in dark glass to protect against sunlight, preventing oxidation and further prolong the shelf life.
HOW YOU can keep your face oil fresh
Use your oil within 6 months of opening. Store your face oil in the fridge or in a cool dark place out of direct sunlight. Do not allow water to enter. Replace the lid after each use and always use clean hands. Never shake your face oil.
