Our Simple Botanical cream is packaged in an airless pump dispenser. This is a requirement placed on us by our safety assessor. The pumps limit the exposure of the cream to the atmosphere. This protects the potency of our active ingredients, which degrade in the presence of oxygen.
As a piston is used, which pushes up the contents from the bottom of the container, they dispense more than 95% of the cream, significantly reducing waste.
When you first get the container, you need to prime the pump. Simply turn it upside down and tap it with your hand or on a soft surface a few times. This gets the cream flowing.
If there are any problems, these are normally due to air bubbles in the mechanism. Simply 'burp' the pump by priming it again. If problems continue push a paper clip into the small hole at the base and push up the piston.
