INFORMATION ON PRESERVATIVE SYSTEMS IN OUR CREAMS

An unpreserved cream will quickly turn into an unpleasant, mouldy mess. Ointments can be made without preservatives, but they are not suitable for facial skin or for cosmetic purposes. Natural preservatives may slow down the rate at which a cream will go off, but they cannot compete with the broad-spectrum range of the synthetic preservatives such as the mixed parabens and phenoxyethanol.

Currently, our creams are preserved using mixed parabens and phenoxyethanol. These preservatives are approved by the appropriated authorities as safe to use, but we obviously wish to keep their exposure to a minimum. Although this looks like a long list of chemicals, by using a mixture, the overall amount of parabens can be kept to a minimum as they enhance each others’ effectiveness.

Secondly, we use the lowest amounts we can effectively get away with. For example, up to 1% is allowed by law, but we use 0.3% to 0.5%. We are committed to working towards a natural preservative system.

Apart from the preservative, we do not add any other artificial ingredients. There are no colourings or artificial perfumes, so our creams are about as natural as is realistically achievable at the current time.
