Every product is marked with a batch code that begins with a
letter followed by 4 or 5 numbers.

- D - 2006
- E - 2007
- F - 2008
- G - 2009
- H - 2010
- J - 2011
- K - 2012
- L - 2013
- M - 2014
- N - 2015
- P - 2016

How long can I use these products?
Calagel is the only product that has an expiration date. We do
not recommend using it past the expiration date.
For all other products, we recommend throwing them out if they
were manufactured more than three years ago. Tecnu Original will
also change color as it ages. If your Tecnu Original turns yellow
or brownish in color, throw it away and purchase new product.
