If the products were not opened :
As long as our products are not open, they are stable and do not expire, as indicated in cosmetics regulations. Even after several years, the characteristics of our products are constant, there is no risk in using them on your skin.
If the products were opened :
Refer to the expiry date after opening, written on the pack in the container symbol.
A fluid texture is lighter than a cream texture which is more rich in nourishing and protective active ingredients. The cream contains, for example, shea butter, squalane and essential fatty acids that result in better protected skin in the event of stress suffered as a result of cold or dry weather. The fluid includes an active ingredient that instead absorbs excess sebum, which can be the result of hot or humid weather.
It is hard to say if that will increase the shelf life of the product.
In any case, keeping products in the fridge is a good tip for some like our After-Sun and our Eye Contour, to make putting them on feel even more refreshing and to stimulate micro-circulation.
ALGA MARIS ® : 2 products are hypoallergenic (with supporting tests) : Sun Spray SPF50+ and Child Sunscreen SPF50+.
METEO LOGIC ® : there are no labeled allergens in any of the 8 products of the range. Particular care was taken in the development of our Eye Contour and Micellar Water: they do not contain added fragrances and were tested under dermatological and ophtalmic supervision for sensitive eyes and contact lense wearers.
In general, our research demands limiting the number of ingredients and rigourously choosing those present for the highest tolerance, so that our skincare products are as safe as possible and skin friendly.
However, for sensitive and allergenic skin, it is recommended to try beforehand on a small area to make sure that no adverse reaction occurs.
Expiration dates are not printed on most cosmetic products. Cosmetic regulations stipulate that expiration dates are not obligatory for products that are stable for 30 months and over, and only the EAO (Expiration After Opening) should be clearly stated.
On the other hand, for products that do NOT last longer than 30 months, an expiration date is obligatory.
Our products do not have any particular constraints as determined by various analysis and are stable for at least 30 months after production.
To find out production date, you can look at the batch number : the first two numbers will correspond with the year, for example 19 for 2019. Next, you will see a letter that corresponds with the month in alphabetical order : A for January, B for February, … L for December. The last number corresponds with a time of day.
Once the product has been opened, refer to the little symbol that looks like a plastic jar on the packaging (ex: 8M means that it should be used in the 8 months following opening).
Out of precautionary measures, we put sure expiry dates on our products. To calculate this date, we base ourselves on hypothetical calculations taking into account the product composition and the results of different tests that we have performed on each product. This estimation gives us a value that we systematically decrease to avoid any risk linked to product spoilage.
