All skincare products have a shelf life. Especially ones with natural ingredients. the longer your product expiry date, the more the preservatives.
We often get asked why our products change colour from batch to batch. The answer is simply due to the natural ingredients.

Our oils and serums contain potent antioxidants that protect against oxidative stress and neutralise free radicals to support brighter healthier looking skin. Even though some of these ingredients are in small percentages, these ingredients are incredibly potent.
The essential oils, botanical extracts and cold pressed plant/nut oils we use can vary in colour and scent from batch to batch from our suppliers. No two plants when picked are identical! There is always some kind of variation when working with natural ingredients.
