    Intresting - however Figure 1.( Relationship between preservative efficacy and human safety) is somewhat misleading.
    The more effective the preservative - the safer the cosmetic product for humans in terms of microbial contamination. 
    The interesting graph would be to set the health-risk of the preservative itself vs the health-risk of microbial contamination.
    Pretty much the same discussion as the safety of UV filters vs sunburn
