    Please help me !

    As we discuss before, the MIT/MIC will be banned in Europe for leave-on products (you can still use it but not for long). So I have to find something else. But, this new magic preservative has to be :
    - without parabens
    - without phenoxyethanol
    - broad spectrum bacteria, yeast and mould
    - not a formaldehyde releaser
    - working pH 3 to 8
    - not too expensive…

    Does this preservative even exists ??

    Thanks !!
