Best before

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 is required to be labelled with a 'best before' date.

"Best before" dating is not common as most cosmetic products are formulated to ensure they have a long shelf life.
