1Given that it contains no preservatives, how long is the shelf life?
Please note that our product has a recommended shelf life of 2 years from the date of manufacture. You can find the exact best before date on the bottle itself. To ensure its freshness and longevity after opening, we highly recommend storing it in the refrigerator. This will help maintain the product's quality and effectiveness over time.
2How come it can be kept for two years without needing any preservatives?
The No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash contains fresh essential oils derived from limes and oranges, which, along with its natural acidity, act as natural antimicrobial agents. To prolong the shelf life of the product, it is advisable to store it in the refrigerator. The cooler temperature helps maintain the product's freshness and preserves its beneficial properties for an extended period.

3Does it foam up?
The No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash does not produce a foaming lather because it lacks surfactants or foaming agents.

While the lack of foam may be different from what you're used to, rest assured that the product is still effectively cleaning and nourishing your body without the need for foaming.
4Why do you call it No-Poo?
Our No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash is inspired by the principles of the No-Poo Method, which advocates for reducing the use of chemical-based products in our daily lives. By embracing the No-Poo philosophy, we strive to minimize our reliance on synthetic chemicals, recognizing their potential harm to both our bodies and the environment.

5How can it clean if it doesn't contain any surfactants or cleansing agents?
Our No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash offers a unique approach to cleansing hair and body that differs from conventional commercial products. Instead of relying on harsh chemicals, our formula harnesses the natural cleansing properties of limes and oranges. These fruits possess an inherent acidity that serves as a gentle yet effective cleanser. With a pH level of 5.5, the same as our skin and scalp, our No-Poo Wash helps maintain the natural balance of these areas.
In addition to its cleansing properties, our No-Poo Wash benefits from the natural essential oils found in limes and oranges. These oils possess antimicrobial properties, helping to eliminate harmful microbes that may be present on the skin and scalp. As a result, you can enjoy a sense of cleanliness after showering, while still retaining the essential moisture that is often stripped away by other products. It's a balanced approach to cleanliness that aligns with the intentions of Mother Nature herself.By using our No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash, you are embracing a purer, more natural form of cleanliness that respects the delicate balance of your hair and skin. Experience the difference of a clean that is gentle, nourishing, and in harmony with the principles of Mother Nature.

9What's the concentration of the essential oil is there in the No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash? Would it impose risk to the endocrine system?
At times, concerns may arise regarding the concentration of essential oils in certain products, as concentrations above 1-2% can potentially cause endocrine disruption. However, we want to assure you that our No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash is carefully crafted to address this concern. Unlike other products, our wash is made by boiling whole limes in water without adding any additional essential oils. This unique process naturally reduces the concentration of essential oils to less than 0.3%, a level considered safe according to recent research. Additionally, when you use the No-Poo Head-to-Toe Wash during your shower, it further dilutes with the running water. Thanks to the wholesomeness of our formula, you can rest assured that using our wash in the long run does not pose any health risks associated with essential oils.
