Product Spoilage within two years
Paraben free means no preservatives, but it also means that the shelf life is limited. I am having to trash "half full" products because of product spoilage.
This Bee Mine product was made in December 2011 based on the product code, but it started to smell rancid already. I think one ingredient is probably spoiling the whole jar. I really think that this jar is only one year old. That's money down the drain.
This KeraCare Natural Textures Hair Milk seems to spoil quickly as well. The 2010 bottle is already separated and the smaller 2011 bottle that I just opened smelled spoiled from day one. I know what it should smell like . . .
Again, with the 2011 bottle, it is probably one ingredient that is spoiling the whole bottle. Just be careful when purchasing "paraben free." You need to get your hands on it as close to the manufacture date and use it within a year!
