What is the shelf life of the products?

The shelf life of the products is 18-36 months, it is indicated on the base of each product. We use soft-on-the-skin preservatives in our face cream and only vitamin E in the oils to preserve the product. We make in small batches to turnover stock quickly. We find that they are so yummy they wont be sitting around for too long. Help them have a long life by keeping out of direct sunlight and in cool places.

What makes your oils good for massage?

The plant oils have been selected and blended to produce products that are perfect for massage, there is a mix of short and long oils, thick and thin. You get long strokes on initial application but they soak into the skin very quickly enabling deep work with good grip and not too much slip. They were developed by a remedial massage practitioner looking for product to suit this style of massage.

Are your products EU1223/2009 compliant?

All products legally on the UK and EU market which fall under 'cosmetics', must go through the safety assessment procedure of EU 1223/2009. All of our products are compliant with this legislation, as they have all been assessed by an EU approved chemist and signed off a safe for use. Thus you do not have to be an aromatherapist to use our products in therapies. All compliant products must subscribe to manufacturing processes that involves no animal testing. We never have and never will test our products on animals and we have Leaping Bunny registration to prove it.
