Cosmetic preservation failures…and point of entry on human body.
I was reading in another (mommy blogger format) forum…how a mommy want to use poor preservatives because…it was for use near the eye.
Her premise was:
1) Effective preservatives are harsh…. Yes…I am laughing even harder than you are.
2) Because the product was used near the eye…you especially needed something weak-a$$. Yes, I laughing even harder.
So questions…. should one have a preservative failure….where do these typically manifest (point of entry for pathogens)? I would assume, unabraded healthy skin…will protect from a lot of badness that we might apply. Is there a typical point of entry for poorly preserved products….especially those used around the eye? I am assuming….the eye…would be high on the list…but maybe my guess is not as sound as I envision it? I thought that some of the Gram - failures…let to blindness…hence assumed the point of entry….was the eye?
I am aware that the preservatives the ‘eco-nuts’ like to use…are also among the least friendly to skin…as they are not selected for performance or skin friendliness, but only agenda based selection process. Is there some sort of graph/chart/paper/article that address the general hostile nature of the ‘natural’ preservatives in relation to skin and irritation?
And yes I know….I should probably stay off those sites!
