Something's not right so in the trash it goes. Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy CREAM is not supposed to be a liquid nor separated. Imagine my surprise when I opened it one day, and it spilled all over me. I've had it for a year and a half and had almost finished it, so not too pissed about it going bad.

Product Claims:
