A dear friend told me a story today, so I thought I would hop on and give a little loving reminder.
HANDS products are about as natural as it gets. They are not chemically preserved, and are meant to be used while they are fresh to reap maximum benefits from the botanical elements.
Natural doesn't always look perfect, and it also requires a little extra care from you once you purchase.
Keeping it cool, out of the sun, and keeping your products away from water are all things you can do to prolong their life.
If you remember my recent Instagram post about my face creams, all my products are anhydrous, made without water, so introducing any water to them will open up opportunities for bacteria & mold to be introduced.
Enter... your spoon! I give little wooden spoons with every jarred product so you can scoop away, worry free!
But I do think it is a great reminder - after hearing that my friend got a drop of water in her mask jar, left it for a couple months and had it grow mold - to just be mindful around water as well.
Make sure your hands are dry, and if you are mixing up a mask or pit detox, scoop out what you want first, close your lid, and then turn on the water!
It takes a little extra care, but I think it's worth it for truly minimally processed, fresh organic skin care with active botanicals. If you ever have any questions or issues around this, please feel free to let me know. ๐Ÿ’›๐ŸŒพ
