Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Facial Scrub FAQ
Q. Why can't water get into the Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Facial Scrub?
The Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Facial Scrub does not include preservatives and therefore water should not get into the container. Although preservatives make life much easier and convenient, Juji Skin believe's that less is more and we have safely designed our entire line preservative free, as long as instructions are followed.
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 within a week. 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.
This is a small extra step, but worth it (and necessary) to ensure that your skin care routine stays as pure and natural as possible.
Be sure to use up the original tub of scrub up in a few months.
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, so the shelf life is therefore shorter.
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.
