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've got a nice tan this summer, with little sunburn. My eyes were previously very sensitive to light, but this summer I've been able to go without sunglasses on cloudy days and at night. It was previously not possible. The greatest impact of the product however, I was completely unprepared for. All my life I have been struggling with the mosquitoes. They have ruined many vacations for me. They love me, but I have been very sensitive to their venom. This has meant that I have had major blisters on big parts of my body, which has been insanely itchy. Had I been exposed to mosquitoes, the same mosquito bite could bother me for up to six weeks. This meant that I had to stay away from places where mosquitoes were particularly troublesome. This has placed limitations on what I could join during the summer. This summer however, has been a totally new experience. I've met a lot of mosquitoes and many have bitten, but it has hardly bothered me. A sparse itching immediately and a couple of hours after the bite, but little inconvenience. I can not find any other reason why this has happened, than Astaxanthin (8mg a day) and is delighted that I came across this product. I also have noticed a big improvement in my nose, as previously was constantly clogged. Completely clear airway nowadays...
This has helped with my rosacea. It is also brilliant at stopping the production of DHT which is beneficial to someone with seborrheic dermatitis such as myself. Love.
