The AO+ Restorative Mist is a one of a kind product in that it actually contains a live & active culture. Cooler temperatures keep the bacteria active for up to 1 year, or the date on the bottle, therefore we recommend keeping the AO+ Restorative Mist refrigerated to maximize its shelf life.
If you do choose to keep it on the counter/room temp, it will last about 4 weeks. After 4 weeks at room temperature, the bacteria start to lose activity. Think of the refrigerator as a way to pause or slow down the loss of activity.
Our other products contain shelf-stable probiotics and do not need to be refrigerated.
