Do Skincare Products Expire?
YES! According To Skincare Experts
OK…then why don’t a lot of skin care products have expiration dates? There is a difference between products sold in the USA and Europe. In the USA, expiration dates are only required on over-the-counter (OTC) drug products, which are acne treatments or sunscreens.
In Europe, products deemed OTC drugs in the USA may only be considered as “cosmetics” in the European Union. Furthermore, expiration dates only indicate when the active ingredients in the formula are likely to expire; the product might still perform otherwise.
We have put together this handy guide for Dr. Keith Chrysler products for you to go through your skin care regimen annually. Toss formulas that no longer guaranteed effective and replenish your favourites. To extend the life of your products for as long as possible, store them in a cool place out of direct sunlight and heat.
