It’s getting warmer, and the last thing you want is to spoil your Corium treats. Here’s a quick guide on how to store your Corium products this spring and summer so you can extend the shelf-life.
Natural products can be very sensitive. An ingredient like shea butter, in particular, can harden when it’s chilly outside, and melt when it’s hot. On the other hand, natural essential oils also need to be stored properly as extended exposure to harsh light can alter its DNA, making it unsafe to use.
CORIUM MASKS MUST BE KEPT IN THE FRIDGE
The ingredients in all our Corium facial masks, including Bentonite clay, turmeric and activated charcoal, are very prone to heat. For the masks to stay fresh and effective, they must be stored in the fridge. Don’t worry – it won’t harden into a rock. You’ll still be able to apply it easily on your face. For best results, try to use each tub within the first 12 months after purchase.
HOW TO PRESERVE YOUR CORIUM BODY BUTTERS
Should your body butter turn into a liquid due to the heat, don’t worry – just pop it in the fridge until it solidifies again. When applied to the body, it will melt very easily because when shea butter comes into contact with the skin, it takes on the temperature of your body and allows for easy application and absorption.
YOUR SERUMS DON’T LIKE THE LIGHT
Ever wondered why your favourite Corium serums come in those dark brown bottles? That’s because they act as a strong barrier against the light. Also, essential oils, like the ones contained in the popular Corium serums, don’t like extreme heat so make sure that you don’t keep them next to the window or anywhere else where they’ll be in direct contact with the sun. Store them in a cool and dark area.
