From the Yao Company:
Hey Wait! Yin-care® Has an “expiration” date of 10.16.23!
Indeed, Yin-care®’s current batch of Herbal Wash shows an “expiration” date of 10.16.23. As you can see, the word expiration is in quotes here. The reason is that we are required to put an “expiration” date on the product; however, it really is supposed to be considered a “Best By” date. We did try to get this printed on the boxes instead of “expiration” but the FDA equivalent in China would not allow for it.
Factory Level Testing for Efficacy
The liquid itself we do efficacy testing on at the factory level and it does show that the bottles are good well beyond a 10 year period. That would mean that these particular bottles are good at least through 2030. However, every practitioner likes to handle this differently. In our clinic, we take time to educate our patients about the situation and they are always ok with continuing to purchase and use our product regardless of the date printed. This may not be something with which you are comfortable.
Composition of Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash
Recall that Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash is both a water based extraction and an essential oil based extraction of the herbs. Due to the essential oils presence, it acts as a preservative. For example, if you have a bottle of Frankincense Essential Oil, do you consider it expired? It does not really expire because it is not pre-diluted and the same is for the Herbal Wash. Because it is highly concentrated even after 10 years, in the lab studies, it showed that it had NOT reached a form of expiration. Every 3 months lab technicians would check Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash efficacy on a petri dish of bacteria. As stated, it continued to show as effective.
Dr. Hudson has been using it since 1999 – has never had a problem with any product – We have one patient still using bottles form 2002 that work well. The expiration date is something we were forced to put on the bottles. If your patients still have a bottle in their cupboard that expired 10 years ago – it would still do the job.
One other option for handling this delicate issue with your patients is to offer it in a less obtrusive fashion by unboxing the bottle and selling it without the box. The same dates are printed on the bottom of the bottle; however, they are more challenging to read.
The reason we are even suggesting this is for continuity of care for your patients. We will have no trouble selling the product being so close to this “expiration date”. There simply is ALWAYS a demand for Yin-care®’s Herbal Wash. We are concerned about our ability to bring in another batch from China considering we have had difficult with Yin-care®’s Supreme Oral Care.
We are working on a more sustainable solution that allows us more control over the product. We will keep you in the loop as that evolves; however, please note that there is a possibility that there would be a few months without a decent supply within date. We are doing our best to avoid this possibility.
