Question 5

5. How do you preserve your products? What ingredient do you use instead of Parabens?

To ensure the safety of our products we use preservatives. We utilize glycols, some alcohols such as benzyl alcohol (naturally found in essential oils), dehydroacetic acid and food grade preservatives (sorbic acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate etc.). We also use antioxidants such as Tocopherol (vitamin E) and rosemary extract. All are accepted by organizations, such as ECOCERT, ICEA, etc. Phenoxythanol is also used in some of our formulations. Due to some pH restrictions we need a broad spectrum preservative so that we can offer the customer a well preserved product.
