PACKAGING SYMBOL DECODED

Ever see this symbol on your face lotion, bottle of foundation, or anything else?

I saw it, usually next to the Green Dot (aka the Grune Punkt), but didn't really know what it meant.

Well, I do now. I think I saw it in a magazine somewhere (not sure if it was Real Simple or not...).

Point is, the number on the "open container" symbol means how many months the product is good for after opening. In the pic above, it's good for 24 months after opening.

So now you know.

Of course, this helps if you remember when said container was opened.
