Florens beauty products they do NOT contain petroleum based chemicals (Mineral oil, Petrolatum, Paraffin), chemical emulsifiers (DEA, MEA, TEA), chemical preservatives (Parabens, Urea), Propylene Glycol, artificial colours, stabilizers or synthentic fragrances.
Our products are not made to sit on store shelves for years and years. Although there are many natural preservatives that exist within the chemical structure of a natural product, they are nowhere near as potent as the synthetic preservatives. Florens Beauty Products have six months shelf life.
Since we manufacture all our own products in small batches to ensure freshness, suggested “use by dates” are based on date of purchase.
- Whipped Butters: Use within 6 months of purchase or 2 months after opening.
- Body Scrubs: Use within 6 months of purchase or 4 months after opening for the best results and no loss or change in texture.
- Creams and Massage Salve: Use within 3 to 6 months to ensure effectiveness and no loss or change in texture.
As mentioned above, temperature changes can affect consistency. We don’t necessarily recommend that you refrigerate your moisturisers, especially the whipped butters. If you live in a warm, humid climate, make sure to keep your natural products in a cool, dry place. Do not leave in a hot environment. Keep away from direct sunlight, heaters and the inside of your vehicle during warm and sunny weather.
During hot weather we do our best to protect our products from melting in transit.
- We check every product before is is packed for shipping.
- We wrap our delicate products in a bubble wrap or other padding to add another layer of insulation as a result, most products delivered in warm weather within United Kingdom, may arrive without melting.
We often receive questions as to whether our butters, and other natural products area safe to use during pregnancy. We recommend that expectant mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skin care routine without products, or any other line of products.
These changes can behave in unpredictable ways, for example if you have eczema you may suffer from major flare-ups or complete remission during pregnancy. Keep your body well moisturised and avoid products that contain synthetic additives, colorants, fragrance or preservatives. Any of these can exacerbate sensitive skin problems.
Before trying a new product, you can always do a patch test to test for sensitivity.
We often receive questions as to whether our butters and other items are safe to use on young children. A baby’s skin, so thin and delicate, is no place for harmful synthetic chemicals. Sadly, even some of the most trusted baby brands add nasty chemicals to their products.
Florens Beauty products contain no artificial colours or fragrances. If your child has sensitive skin, you can always do a patch test to test for sensitivity. It is best to add only one new product at a time and use it for a while before switching to a new product.
