WHAT IS THE SHELF LIFE OF LALUN PRODUCTS?
-All products are best used within 6 months, but can last up to a year.
HOW SHOULD LALUN PRODUCTS BE STORED?
-Please store in a cool, dry, dark place. A medicine cabinet is ideal as long as it is dry. If you would like to extend the shelf life of your products, you may store them in your refrigerator. Just make sure they remain clean and dry.
DO YOU USE PRESERVATIVES?
-All of our oil based products (cleansers, balms, serums, moisturizers) have a certified organic Rosemary Oil Extract (ROE) and Vitamin E added as antioxidants to stabilize oxidation.
-Only our water based products (toner, moisturizer) contain ECOCERT certified preservative system and/or Leuconostoc (probiotic based preservative system) to ensure baceria will not proliferate. This is key because in ANY water based system, microorganisms will grow in the water phase as soon as the product is made, no matter how sanitary the process. By the time you see evidence (separation, mold, change in color, scent or texture), contamination is already in the billions. Since one never knows what kind of wild strain is growing, there’s a chance it could be a pathogen such as Staphylococcus aureus. Any minor abrasion could be a gateway for a pathogen to enter the body. It’s simply not worth the risk, especially when there are good options for product preservation at low concentrations (less than 1%).
DO YOU TEST YOUR PRODUCTS ON ANIMALS?
-No, only on myself, friends and family! As a lifelong animal lover I wouldn't dream of it, especially since the ingredients I use are mostly edible and GRAS (generally regarded as safe) and don't need further testing.
-Our skincare products are VEGAN and are labelled as such.
