The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I usually use Alaffia's Neem and Shea Skin Recovery cream, but wanted to try something lighter for days when I don't need as extreme a moisturizer. This one fits the bill - it's more of a lotion than a heavy cream, glides on easily, soaks in quickly and doesn't leave a shiny, greasy layer on the face. It wears well under makeup and keeps my skin noticeably soft and hydrated all day or night. I've noticed an improvement in fine and dehydration lines around my eyes and on my neck and forehead since making my two Alaffia creams a regular part of my skin care routine. My only qualm with this cream is that I still need to put a layer of high linoleic oil underneath, since this cream is higher in oleic acid, and too much of that tends to make my very acne prone skin break out. It's not a huge problem, and probably wouldn't be an issue at all for many people, but I'd rather see Alaffia make a cream with just shea and melon seed oil or something so I could use it alone - the extra oil I have to add makes this less lightweight than I would like.
