Skin Regimen utilizes a proprietary blend of essential oils that are considered to be free from, or contain low levels, of allergens. Any allergens in formulas must be listed as ingredients.

This period is expressed as "Best before..." followed by the month and year. If necessary, the label indicates specific conditions required to guarantee the aforementioned.
