How long can the products last?

Most products are made to last a long time, although it is not always clear just how long ‘a long time’ is. If a product has a limited shelf life (less than 30 months - two and a half years) it must be labelled with a ‘best before’ date, before and after opened.

All Derma products are marked with an expiry date and a durability time before and after opening. Most of our products have a shelf life of 30 months. The expiry date is specified by the text ’best before’ or with an hourglass:


The open jar symbol below specifies the number of months the product is safe to use after opening it:


Sunscreen is durable for 2-3 years if not opened and stored at normal room temperature. If your sunscreen is opened, normal durability will be 12 months. If the sunscreen has become dirty, changed in colour or smells, you should throw it away and buy a new one. If your sunscreen is exposed to high temperatures, e.g. in a hot car or direct sunlight, it will lose its effect over time.
