Please note that this cream is preserved by a naturally derived preservative system. We use the broad spectrum preservative "Linatural" which extends the shelf life to at least 12 months. Linatural is a broad spectrum preservative, that is non-formaldehyde donating. Its effective against gram negative pathogens, bacteria, yeast and fungi.

A word about our new emulsion system: EccoMulse. This product is comprised of three ingredients (Glyceryl Stearate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol (and) Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate). Not only do we feel that this emulsion system makes a better lotion than our previous formulation, SCG is approved for organic cosmetics whereas emulsifying wax is not.
We manufacture all our lotion base at the time its ordered, this ensures that your lotion is fresh and holds the longest shelf life possible. By adding other ingredients such as aloe vera juice or other waterborne products, you may shorten the shelf life of this product. Your own testing of a revised shelf date would then need to be made. If you are ordering the unscented version and decide to scent it yourself: essential and fragrance oils will not effect the shelf life, in fact, essential oils will slightly help strengthen the life of this product. Please use this lotion base within 6 months of purchasing for the most optimal skin benefits.
