The run of the mill store bought skin care products can last for years without any outward sign of decay because they use much more powerful synthetic compounds that prove to be harsher. Product that are committed to being as natural as possible but have to be palatable for mass production and semi-convenient to consumers have to find a way to split the divide. Thankfully nature provides us with some wonderful preservatives and when measured correctly, and used in very small amounts, can extend the life of products and prevent anti-oxidation, mold, decay, and give millions a natural alternative to what’s on the shelves currently.
Germaben II is a convenient, naturally occurring, ready-to-use broad spectrum anti-microbial preservative for products like ours, and many other brand. We have always utilized the Germaben II in our products because it is accepted by many certifying natural and vegan boards for cosmetics and personal care.
