Cleo pads are manufactured to the highest quality standard and have a minimum 12-24 month shelf life from the date of manufacture.
HOW CLEO PADS ARE MADE
Formulated with non-allergic medical grade Hydro-Gel they should not irritate the skin or cause any adverse reaction. Hydro-Gel is made from water in a suspended state and it is naturally adhesive to skin.
Cleo pads, or ‘electrode pads’ are re-usable, and on average one set should last between 4-6 weeks with normal usage, however, they do have a limited life span and cannot be guaranteed for a set number of uses.
INFO FOR FIRST TIME USERS / USERS WITH AN EXTENDED BREAK BETWEEN TREATMENT
If you are a new Cleo user or have had an extended break in treatment, for the first few weeks, it is normal for pads to lose adhesion more quickly than when you have an established routine.
This is due to the release of fatty deposits, oil eruptions and toxins from the epidermis, which enhances your complexion but initially reduces pad life. As impurities are removed and your skin tone improves, pad life will extend to normal expected time frames.
It is important to note that average usage expectancy can vary between individuals, and is influenced by skin type, skin composition and duration of treatment sessions, as well as storage and care.
TOP TIPS FOR MAINTAINING PAD PROPERTIES
Alternative cleansing products often contain oils which reduce the adhesive properties of the pads, or harsh chemicals which diminish the integrity of the gel.
Even if you use your own brand of cleanser to remove make-up, it is advisable to cleanse again with a Cleo product to remove any remaining residues. Always remember to rinse off & pat dry before applying your pads to skin.
Once pads become contaminated with incompatible substances they do not stick and do not effectively conduct transmission.
* FOR BEST RESULTS:
Remove dead skin cells once a week using Cleo Skin Sheer Radiance Polish
We must stress that correct cleansing and storage is strongly recommended to preserve the longevity of your Cleo pads and effectiveness of your treatment.
Cleo pads are supplied on a plastic film inside a paper sleeve: the plastic film should be discarded after first use, and after that and each subsequent use, place your pads onto the silicone lined inner of the pad sleeve. If you replace the pads onto the plastic film, oil contamination will accumulate and hinder adhesion next time.
Store your pads in a cool dry place away from any source of heat or direct sunlight. This helps to prevent dehydration of the gel which can make it lose stickiness more quickly.
The best way to keep your pads hydrated and the gel in optimum condition is to store them in an air tight container in the refrigerator.
* FOR BEST RESULTS:
Rehydrate the Hydro-Gel of your Cleo pads with a dab of water prior to placing on the sleeve.
FACTORS WHICH CAN REDUCE PAD LIFE
> Poor cleansing / skin care routine.

It is therefore important to follow our top tips to preserve the usability of your Cleo pads.
ONGOING COST OF CLEO TREATMENT
If you use Cleo regularly it is more cost effective for you to order pads in bulk, especially as they have a long shelf life.
Buying your pads in larger quantities can save you as much as 60% so it makes sense to stock up every time you order.
Based on average number of uses per set of 6, lasting up to 6 weeks, the cost per treatment session is as little as 10p if you order our value pack of 10 sets.
