Facial oils and serums are plant-powered miracle workers for radiant skin.
Also a fact:
they definitely have a shelf life.
But wait – all those expensive actives mean your serum will last for years, right? RIGHT?
Unfortunately, the fragile nature of plant oils means they can oxidize after even minimal contact with air and sunlight (imagine rust forming on a car). This is a problem because oxidation creates free radicals that can cause the facial oil or serum you paid top dollar for to be ineffective and no longer beneficial for your skin.
But here’s the thing:
Not all serums are created equal! At One Love Organics, we’ve tested and ensured that our Vitamin C Facial Serum and New Botanical E Youth Preservation Serum are at their best for an ENTIRE year after opening!
We’ve maximized our products so your skin gets the best results:
- Antioxidant-rich actives like Vitamin C Ester, Vitamin E, and Astaxanthin help to reduce susceptibility to oxidation.
- Super stable plant oils like meadowfoam, watermelon, and jojoba help extend the shelf-life of other natural oils in the formula by up to 250%.
- Stability testing in the EU confirms a full one year shelf life.
- Packaging in amber glass with a pump (never a dropper!) reduces exposure to light and air.
Pro-Tip: In order to get a full year out of your favorite OLO facial oil serum, keep it in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight and do not remove the pump (to avoid contact with air).
If you’re still wondering whether or not you should use that facial oil serum that came in your subscription box 2 years ago – don’t. Toss it out and treat yourself to a new, fresh bottle that will truly nourish your skin.
