In order to achieve a shelf life of approximately two years skincare products need strong preservatives. Why does that matter?
Firstly, it is widely known that preservatives are by far the most likely ingredients to cause irritation.
Fuishena has decided to keep preservatives to an absolute minimum. This is essentially the reason their products are freshly manufactured and have a shelf life of six months. You get them fresh and you use them fresh.
Fuishena don't use parabens - a commonly used strong preservative, because there is an abundance of evidence that parabens can disrupt your hormone system.
Their products are also alcohol-free, eliminating the potential to dry out your skin which alcohol tends to do by pulling moisture from the cells.
Fuishena also use the preservative Vitamin E for example, both natural and good for you as it works to not only softening and soothe the skin, as well as acting as an antioxidant.
Secondly, from the moment the formulation is prepared, strongly preserved or not, the active ingredients slowly start to lose their effectiveness. This is because active ingredients which are mostly antioxidants, do their job.
They are active and react with oxidants. The actives react with the air, the sunlight and other substances - therefore are slowly broken down into an inactive state from the time that the product is opened.
Once a product is used daily, this process of the actives breaking down accelerates.
To keep products as fresh and active as possible, Fuishena include a storing pouch with every glass container. This provides protection from sunlight, overheating and potential breakage.
