    Both wouldn’t be allowed in the EU and both don’t look ‘mild’ to me. Ah well, the world is overpopulated anyway…

    I will not sell it in Europe and all these ingredients are allowed here.

    Is it because of formalin or something else in the formula that you think it is not mild? 

    My another preservative option is CMI MI but i think formalin is milder than CMI MI.
