Can you have Swisse Me blends hot or cold?

For best taste results, keep at room temp so you can squeeze every last bit from the pouch. But if you don’t eat it all at once, you can refrigerate it (with the lid on) for a max of 48 hours. Our packs cannot be microwaved but if you fancy a bit of heat you can stand it in some hot water for a minute or so. Whatever works for you!

From our website to your doorstep, you’ve got a few months to consume. We use fresh ingredients in all of our blends (including a twist of lemon in each one for preservation) but just check back of pack for the expiry date and you’re good to go.

At the moment, some of our packaging is recyclable and some of it isn’t. We endeavour to minimalise waste by using recyclable materials.

We’re all for creating a wide range that suits all tastes, so some of our products do contain nuts like almond flour. But we always make it very clear in the ingredients box on the back of each pack that will either state ‘contains nuts’ or ‘may contain traces of nuts’ if they’re produced in a place that handles them. If our product doesn’t state either message on the pack, it means there are no nuts or traces of nuts. Hope this clears things up!

But there are some products from our other ranges that contain ‘active ingredients’ that may not be suitable for little ones.So the best thing to do, as always, is read the label if in doubt!
