Preservatives

A tricky bunch, a tested result

We worked closely with our formulations chemist to bring you ingredients that are gentle to sensitive skin. Our preservative choice took a lot of work. 

We were unhappy with the original selection of preservative given its hazard rating on the Environmental Working Group Skin Deep Database. It took our chemist a lot of time and effort to ensure our formula was stable using the most gentle preservative. We ended up with Sodium Benzoate - a preservative used in most organic products, and the best for sensitive skin. 

This preservative has the highest hazard rating of any of our ingredients, but we know that preservatives are better than harmful bacteria growing in our products. 

All our preservatives are plant derived.
