Citrus and Apricot Energizing Body Polish
Q. Why can't water get into the Citrus and Apricot Energizing Body Polish?
This body scrub does not include preservatives and therefore water should not get into the container. Although preservatives make life much easier and convenient, Juji Skin believes that less is more and we have safely designed our entire line preservative free, as long as instructions are followed. Preservatives can also be very irritating to the skin, and have also been linked to premature skin aging.
Q. So what are the instructions?
The instructions are simple, just like our skin care line. Just scoop enough scrub for a week from the product container and transfer it into another container that you can bring into the shower with you. It's ok if some water gets into the shower container as long as it is used up in a few weeks. Then when your shower container is empty, repeat the process. This way you keep the original tub of scrub fresh and water free, while also being able to bring some scrub into the shower.
Q. Why is the shelf life only 3 months?
Our customers love us because of what we don't include in our products (namely preservatives). They would rather have preservative free skincare prepared fresh and delivered more often than have preservatives added.
Preservatives are necessary to add to most skin care lines as water (a cheap filler) is the main ingredient, and if water is added to any skin care product then preservatives must be added as well. Because Juji Skin is an anhydrous line (meaning no water has been added to any product), we can safely leave preservatives out of our products.
