Using The Right Natural Cosmetic Preservative


The benefits of Natural Cosmetics is sometimes being compromise by the kind of preservative that being added. Unlike synthetics products, Natural Cosmetics shelf life is shorter but more effective and long lasting on our skin. Using harsh preservative can loose the effectiveness of Natural Cosmetics, that's why choosing the right preservative is important.

I have added two kinds of preservative on my webstore. The Grapefruit Seed Extract and Liquid Germal Liquid Plus. Although the Grapefruit Seed Extract is not a full-spectrum preservative but it is widely known to have an effective anti-microbial properties. Grapefruit Seed Extract can kill the growth different harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoan parasites that may be present in your cosmetics. It is a very popular natural preservative used by a lot of Natural Cosmetic Makers.

On the otherhand, Liquid Germal Liquid Plus is a broad-spectrum preservative system for Cosmetics formulations. It is a very effective preservative that will keep your Natural Cosmetics fresh and free from bacteria for longer period. It has a synergistic preservative effect which provide a complete a broad spectrum preservation against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeast, and mold.

Dont compromise the quality of your Natural Cosmetics by using Harsh preservatives. Use the right preservative and add the right amount to your Natural Cosmetics without loosing the mild and gentle effects of the Natural Ingredients present in your Cosmetics. Keep your product safe by using the right Preservative.
