  • Natural Alternatives To PhenoxyEthanol

    Posted by Anonymous on August 15, 2014 at 1:06 pm

    Good day,
     
    From what I understand, there is on-going
    controversy about the use of PhenoxyEthanol in Cosmetics / Lip Stick
    products.  The FDA has issued a warning about it and it has also been
    banned in some countries.  There is also ongoing debate about which
    levels are actually harmful - low vs high.
     
    My questions are as follows:

    1.  Can anyone direct me to any source where I can obtain scientific data / facts that show that PhenonyEthanol is harmful (whether in low or high levels).  I am not skeptical of its harmful claims.  I just want to be more educated on the issue.
      
    2.  From anyone’s experience, is there a safe percentage level for Lip Sticks?

    3.  For Lip Sticks - Are there any suggestions for more natural
    alternatives?

    Your feedback is appreciated.  Thanks.
