Q. What is the shelf life of LR Modern Alchemy Products?
We make all of our blends in small batches to ensure freshness. We recommend using products within 6 months of opening for best results. Long term exposure to sunlight and/or heat should be avoided.
Q. My products seem different than the last product I have used — Why is that?
We use only the finest wild crafted and organic oils possible. They are not mass produced the way other ingredients often are. Variations in scent and color are intrinsic in the natural sector.
Q. My oil seems cloudy — Why is that?
These are organically grown plants and flowers, and are 100% natural. An occasional harmless haze may occur.
Q. What does sustainability mean?
How do we live together now and through generations — Sustainability embraces an organic approach to agriculture.
Organic agriculture is a system that preserves the health of soils, ecosystems, and people — The gift of good land.
Q. Does LR Modern Alchemy test on animals?
We never test our products on animals. We do not use antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides, or chemical fertilizers so that the integrity of what is being grown is not compromised.

Hair Care FAQ
Q. This shampoo doesn't seem to lather as much as other brands. Why?
Our products are free of sodium lauryl sulphates which is a harsh detergent that is drying and damaging to the hair and skin. Shampoo hair twice first time to lift out any oils or products, second to ensure hair is thoroughly cleansed and ready for our hairfood conditioner.
Q. I can't comb my hair with just using your shampoo. Why?
Most shampoos contain artificial ingredients such as silicone (a liquid plastic) that coats the hair and makes it easier to comb. Silicone builds up on the hair and will eventually leave your hair dull. After even a small amount of our hairfood conditioner, you will be able to comb your hair beautifully.
Q. How often should I wash my hair?
Depending on how dry or coarse your hair is, typically wash 1-3 times a week. Fine hair needs washing more often.
Q. I have very fine hair. I am concerned conditioner will leave my hair feeling greasy and weighed down.
Because we do not use silicone or waxes, our conditioner will never weigh down hair and leaves your locks feeling hydrated and shiny. Our products are designed to work together. You should always condition hair after shampooing.
Q. This is a very new concept for me to put 'Hair Finishing Oil' on my hair. Help me understand why I would do this?
Hair simply needs oil and makes it naturally, which is stripped by over washing and color processing, as well as by the effects of the weather and climate you live in. Our Hair Finishing Oils are light weight and don't coat or weigh down the hair, but put back moisture and shine.
