As we use only the finest natural ingredients known to us and minimal preservatives in our fresh, original preparations, we offer the following guidelines to help maintain the freshness and efficacy of HKB’s formulations:
Although their shelf lives are much longer, we recommend that face creams be used within three months of opening, cleansing products be used within one year from opening. In general, it is a good idea to refrigerate products to extend their lifespan.
Products should not be exposed to extreme heat, cold, or temperature changes and should be kept out of direct sunlight. Products should be kept in a cool, dry place. Bathrooms are not usually ideal locations for product storage, because the temperature and humidity levels there change frequently.
We recommend use of sterile disposable, plastic spatulas or swabs with all creams packaged in jars – rather than fingers – to remove the product form the jar in order to decrease the potential introduction of bacteria from the fingertips into the product.
Please be sure to close lids tightly on all jars and to remove any residue from the spouts on bottles before each use. Bottle tops should be fully closed when storing product or between applications.
A Note on Product Variation
Because HKB’s utilizes natural ingredients in our unique formulations, our products may vary in color and consistency with each new batch that we make. These natural variations do not in any way affect the quality or efficacy of the product.
We want you to enjoy and benefit to the utmost from your HKB’s products. If you should ever have any questions about our products or their use, please do not hesitate to call on us at any time. It is always our great pleasure and honor to serve you however we can.
