Caring for your Una Products
Because we make our products without chemical preservatives, a little extra care will extend the life of your Una lotions.
Let your Una lotions live out of direct sunlight, and if possible, remove them from damp environments.
If your bathroom gets especially humid in the summertime, try moving your lotions to a bedroom.
Regularly wiping the surface of your lotions will reduce the amount of germs introduced to them, and thus prolong the quality.
Just like with your organic produce, storing your Una lotion in the refrigerator is a great way to keep it fresher, longer!
And finally, we always recommend the Smell Test! We call it Skin Food for a reason....if it smells fresh, it is fresh :-)
