The Research

Recent research points to increasing concerns about premade skincare creams and rapid decay due to extensive shelf time before use. Chemical reactions are triggered by active ingredients existing in one skincare solution leading to the decay and degradation of the product, particularly with inferior storage conditions. Critical concern has been raised on the side effects of using expired creams. The demand for freshness, potency and a fast working skincare product is increasing exponentially.

Degradation of Skincare Products is
Common

Skin creams are semi-solid oil or water-based formulas mixed with active ingredients like collagen, retinol, and vitamins. Initial factory mixing of all the ingredients and formulas generate an end product that buyers purchase regularly, like moisturizers, serums, anti-aging creams, and similar skincare products.

When the mixing part of the product process is completed, the packaged, pre-made creams are delivered to a warehouse - where they wait until they are ordered by customers. In most cases, that takes months or even years.

Why Not Use Creams with Prolonged Shelf & Storage Time: Your Skin Matters

Mixed active ingredients in face creams experience chemical processes like hydrolysis and oxidation, or they can impact PH levels of ingredients and the entire cream. While it might look and seem unchanged, millions of molecules are continuously interacting in your cream, decaying its quality while on the shelf or in storage.

Skincare solutions can experience active-ingredient degradation of 50% or higher within a few months, even leading to the production of toxins in some cases. For example: vitamins, such as A and C, that are widely used as active ingredients for skincare benefits, are often prone to rapid breakdown when mixed with other compounds.

What You Need to Know About The Skincare Products You Have Been Purchasing

Recent research points to increasing concerns about premade skincare creams and rapid decay due to extensive shelf time before use. Chemical reactions are triggered by active ingredients existing in one skincare solution leading to the decay and degradation of the product, particularly with inferior storage conditions. Critical concern has been raised on the side effects of using expired creams. The demand for freshness, potency and a fast working skincare product is increasing exponentially.

A few fresh facts about premade skincare
products worth knowing:

  • Cosmetic brands we all know make creams with active ingredients that chemically react when mixed, reducing product potency over time, and in some cases triggering production of toxins.
  • Skincare products containing vitamins or essential oils may be subject to the most rapid degradation, given the sensitivity of these ingredients.
  • Pre-mixed skincare products are most potent and effective for the first two months post-production.
  • Once all skin cream ingredients are mixed and create a cream, the first 60 days of product use deliver the best results.
