My argan oil arrived & it's frozen!

I know some ladies store cosmetics in the fridge, but does anyone have any experience with argan oil that has frozen because ups left the package outside in freezing temperatures for 3 days before I found it buried in the snow?!? I think it is probably safe to use, but will it still be effective & have the same shelf life?

I am curious about this too. Mine has been sitting somewhere probably on a truck for three days unable to be delivered due to our ice storm. I worry it could be spoiled.

I would think it's ok but not 100% positive...

I'd go to Josie Maran's website and email their customer service.  With all this crazy weather, I'm sure you aren't the only one with this issue so they'd probably be the best place to ask.

I have had this happen with a WEN treatment oil and is was fine after thawing.

Cold, no.

Heat, yes.

I had this happen too. I called Josie's company and they said it's fine to use after it thaws. Mine thawed and it looked and smelled normal.
