Shelf Life

We micro-filter and UV filter our hydrosols for optimum shelf life. They keep a much longer shelf life (up to 5 years!) in the refrigerator, but only need to be stored out of sunlight and heat. Our labels suggest to store in a cool, dark place.

About Veriditas Botanicals

Our hydrosols are distilled in stainless steel stills and processed through certified organic methods in Europe – BIO, SIMPLE and ECOCERT. True hydrosols are not essential oils added to water; they are the bi-product of essential oil distillation. Also known as floral waters, hydrolates, flower waters or distillates, hydrosols contain all of the water-soluble elements of a plant and are very effective for skin care, as well as extremely safe. As they are a milder extract, hydrosols are suitable for all manner of applications where essential oils would be too strong. In most hydrosols there is less than 5% naturally occurring essential oil.
