Substitution for Phenoxyethanol?

I need a safe, toxin free, non-irritating, non-dryinf substitute for Phenoxyethanol at 1% in a skincare serum and cream. 


  • You're not going to get a helpful response unless you provide more information. The best preservative is going to depend on the ingredients in your products, some work better in certain conditions than others.

    Also 'toxin-free' is not a universally defined term, you're better off picking a standard that means something to everyone (i.e. no formaldehyde- releasers)
