The Mary Kay Forever Orchid eau de toilette date code can be found on the bottom of the bottle. The date code indicates when the product was manufactured and not when the product expires.
All Mary Kay products carry a date code. This is a four-digit code consisting of two letters followed by two numbers. This code is usually located on the bottom of a container or on the crimp. This code indicates exactly when the item was manufactured. Mary Kay also uses the date codes to trace items returned for any reason. Date codes should not be confused with expiration dates. While not a regulation, expiration dates are clearly labeled on cosmetic products with a shelf life of under three years as an industry standard. Most Mary Kay products have a shelf life exceeding three years.
