Product Shelf Life

Below is a list of the general shelf life of all of the products sold by Pompeii Street Soap Co. & Aromatherapy. We recommend storing all of our products correctly to maximize their shelf life.

Pompeii Street Soap Products:

As it ages, soap becomes better for the skin. All of our other products should be used within their specified shelf life. We use an all-natural preservative system in our products to ensure their freshness and safety through the indicated shelf life on the product.

Pompeii Street products should be stored at room temperature. It is not advised to store these products in your car or anywhere  they may be exposed to extreme temperatures.


The following guidelines are based on the essential oil chemistry and proper storage.

Essential oils should be stored in a cool, dark place to maximize therapeutic shelf life. Essential oils exposed to extreme heat, light or oxygen on a regular basis will oxidize quickly and are more likely to cause skin irritation and other issues. Oils past their shelf life should only be used for cleaning or discarded.

These guidelines listed are based on years of Pompeii Street GC/MS analysis experience in addition to research by Robert Tisserand as stated in his book Essential Oil Safety, 2nd Edition.
