Products made by Lisa's Treasures do not contain preservatives, as a result do not introduce water to the product. I provide wooden spoons to use to scoop out desired amount needed. It is best to use within 12 months of opening.
If ordering during hot, summer months, I recommend having it shipped to office or bring inside directly after receipt. Keep items in a cool place and out of direct sunlight, especially body butters and creams. If your products melt, they will lose their 'Fluffiness". However you can put the products in the refrigerator to resolidify. Your product will still be usable, after doing so and will still have all the wonderful benefits from the natural butters and oils.
