No, never! Our body care products were created specifically to avoid harsh chemicals, artificial ingredients and fragrances. As a small company the cost of being declared “organic” is quite high but we strive to maintain organic, all natural products that nourish the skin.

Because of the fresh nature of our products, it is best to use them as you buy them. All soaps, body butter cremes and lotions have a shelf life up to 1 year.

Products that contain a high amount of oil like sugar scrubs, salt scrubs and facial exfoliator need to be used within 3 months of purchasing due to the fact that oils do go rancid. These products are made to order so you can enjoy them until they are used up without worry. Our packaging typically lasts about 1-2 months before the products is used up.

Just don’t buy them, stash them in a drawer or cabinet for any time. The products are meant to be used and enjoyed right away.
