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 like some of ALAFFIA's lotions, but they can be hit or miss - some seem to moisturize wonderfully, others seem to be too greasy. This one is by far my favorite ALAFFIA lotion, and definitely in my top three favorite lotions in general. It's a little pricey, but it is worth every penny. I find that this coconut lotion is moisturizing enough for the coldest months of the year [unlike DESERT ESSENCE, which is my favorite summer time lotion]. I use it for hands and body, and I find that a little goes a long way. Those who complained of a sour smell must have gotten a bad batch. I've bought this lotion loads of times, both directly from ALAFFIA and from IHERB, and it's always had a faint scent of toasted coconut. Actually, the scent is the second reason [behind its great ability to moisturize] why I buy this lotion. I am sensitive to scents and simply cannot use generic drugstore lotion, BATH and BODY WORKS, or even BURT'S BEES GUD lotions because the scents make me feel nauseous and sometimes give me headaches. None of the ALAFFIA lotions have ever bothered me.
This smells sour. I honestly have no idea how well it moisturizes because right after I put it on I was trying to scrub it off with loads of soap. Either something went horribly wrong with the batch I received, or this stuff is just grody.
