products don't last forever
Like most things in life, products don't last forever. To help determine if you should continue using your products, check the Expiration Date and PAO
Expiration Date is the date the product expires and should not be used anymore. Expiration dates must be specified only for products that have a shelf life of 30 months or less. The date is printed directly on product package in the form month/year or day/month/year, for example: Exp. 04/22 means that you can use the product only till April, 2022
If shelf life of the product is more than 30 months, the expiry date will not usually be printed directly on the product package. This doesn’t mean that you should use the product for 3 years or more, instead, it means that you should look at the product’s PAO.
Period after opening (PAO) is used to signify how long you can use your product once you opened it. The PAO looks like an open jar with a number followed by the letter M. The number indicates how many months (M) the product can be safely used for after opening, for eg. 12M means that product can be used for twelve months after opening.
General Rule If a product has separated or developed a funky odor, its texture or color has changed, if it feels different on the skin than it once did, or if you can’t remember when you bought it, it’s probably time to toss it!
