How long will each bottle of Lively Up Your Breath last me?
Each bottle of our all-natural liquid breath freshener will last someone between 4 – 6 weeks using it 3 to 4 times a day. If unopened, the product will be good until the expiration date on the bottom of the bottle. Once opened we would recommend you use it within 8 weeks.
Where are your products manufactured?
Our breath drops are manufactured for us at a facility in Corona, California which is licensed by the FDA to process all products labeled as “organic”. In addition, they are licensed by the FDA to produce pharmaceutical products. Our capsule bursts are manufactured for us in a facility certified by the NSF in Cerritos, California.
Why did you choose to use agave to sweeten your products?
We chose to use a RAW ORGANIC agave nectar because it gave our breath freshening products a texture and flavor that worked well with the chlorophyll and our essential oils. In addition, we wanted our drops to be vegan so we chose not to use honey in these.
Since July 2013, the RAW ORGANIC agave nectar we use is USDA certified Organic, certified Kosher by OK and certified Halal by IFANCA. If you want to find out more about our supplier Click Here
Why is carrageenan in your capsule bursts and is it safe?
Carrageenan is derived from red seaweed and is used as an alternative to animal based thickeners which allows it to be used in vegan products. It is a naturally occurring, non-synthetic substance and is NOT chemically altered during processing. Carrageenan is extracted through a process of soaking, filtering and drying much as it has been for hundreds of years. It is a component used by our manufacturer in their patented vegetarian capsules to help with their structure.
Carageenan is a food grade product and has been determined safe by the US Food and Drug Administration and The World Health Organization.
How long does the effect last?
It depends on an individual’s oral health and digestive system. For us, for our drops it’s between 10 – 20 minutes. The capsules will stay with you a little longer because of the organic olive & macadamia nut oils. You will get the initial “hit” of menthol and then slowly the effect will dissipate as your saliva gradually breaks down the product. You won’t really notice that it is gone, because you will not get any kind of funky aftertaste like other breath fresheners since there is nothing artificial in our products!
Can I keep it in my car?
Our products do not need to be refrigerated. However, we do not recommend keeping our drops in your car due to the heat. Our capsule bursts are fine to keep in your car. You can keep our “Lively Up” in your pocket, purse, desk or backpack – just make sure to “lock” the cap on our drops into place and, if necessary, keep the tip clean.
Do I have to be neat?
Simple answer is yes. To make sure the bottle stays as securely closed as possible, please keep the top of the applicator tip clean and the cap on tight.
Also, if you open our bottles while in flight please open the bottles upright (not sideways) due to the air pressure.
Can I Give It To My Pets?
No, we would not recommend giving our liquid drops to your pets as it contains organic grain alcohol.
