  • Natural products claiming no preservative?

    Posted by Anonymous on November 30, 2017 at 8:07 am

    Lately I keep seeing all kinds of skincare cosmetics claiming no preservative at all
    and i can’t help but wonder how they get away with it ?
    Don’t they have to be using something ?
    It bothers me a lot because to 
    me that would make the product unsafe.

    Sometimes is marketing and a carefully chosen set of words. Like claiming it doesn’t have added preservatives, doesn’t mean the raws don’t have *wink wink*

    There are a variety of ingredients that effectively function as preservatives, but allow for “Preservative-Free” to be claimed.

    Personally, I don’t quite understand the appeal of a “Preservative-Free” claim, but it must resonate with some particular consumer subset.

     Not sure why they want to claim preservative free but hey it’s free of something so it’s a must buy! 

    Its all marketing.
