Kanberra Products Shelf Life Information

Please note that all Kanberra® products have a born-on date and are labeled using Julian Date Codes.  We suggest that the product is sold and used within 12 months of that date. This is because it is a natural product and is considered perishable.

We highly recommend that all Kanberra products be stored in a cool, dark place. Avoid direct sunlight and extreme temperature fluctuations when it comes to product storage.

Please note that the ONLY exception to the born-on date rule is the .2oz Kanberra sample size containers.  THESE HAVE A BORN-ON DATE LOCATED ON THE BOX. THERE IS NOTHING ON THE SAMPLE ITSELF. The shelf life of these samples is only 2-3 months, so use them immediately as they are in a non-sealed container.

The photo below will explain how to read the born-on date, based on Julian Date Codes:

Under Kanberra you will see several numbers listed. The first three numbers on the second line equals the day of the year the product was manufactured followed by a single digit that represents the year.  In this case, 037 = February and 9 = 2019 so this container was manufactured on the 37th day of 2019 = February 8th, 2019.
