Self tanner+ Radish Root

I'm doing some work with DHA and found it in combination with Radish Root in a handful of different products. I can't find any reasoning for this. Anyone maybe know of a reason why?

    Just guessing...but they probably purchased it that way from a supplier.  So came as a blend.  And the supplier led them to believe the radish root was preserving it (the blend)?

    Are there any other ingredients that are common is all the formulas?

    Just a guess.

    In this product they are using it as a poor preservative. 

    So, if it's a product produced by a small company they are probably under the delusion that they want to avoid functional preservatives that sound scary. Instead they use the inferior, unreliable system with radish root ferment.
  • I think I was mistaken- by omission. Radish Root Ferment Filtrate is in the following products:
    Beauty by Earth Self Tanner Mousse
    Thermalabs Natural Self Tanner
    Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare- Alpha Beta® Intense Glow Pad Self-Tanner for Face

    The preservative idea makes sense as it's found in the last few ingredients.
