are offered throughout the year and to be added to

Q. Is there any alcohol in Regina
A. No there is not.
U.S. Federal food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires
that products that contain alcohol to indicate the
percent by volume on the front label.
Q. What is the shelf life after best
used by date?
A. Once a product is opened and exposed to light,
contaminants in the air, and temperature changes we
cannot be absolutely certain for how long a product
would be of quality as when it was first filled.
There is no exact answer to this question, too many
Once opened considering where and how long a product has
been exposed to light, heat, various room temperatures
as well as the actual refrigeration temperature or
storage conditions and when it is stored would determine
how long it could still be safe to use.
But again even if you never opened a product it will
(Provided the packaging has not been compromised). It
does not mean you cannot use the product just that it is
not at the same quality as when filled.
