OUR OILS, BUTTERS, & WAX:
DO WE USE PRESERVATIVES?
We strive to NOT use preservatives, & almost all of our products are oil / powder based, which are not favorable environments for bacterial growth, so they are generally preservative free. Some of our ingredients (such as essential oils) provide some level of natural preservation of our products.
However, due to the increased chance of bacteria formation in a few select products (because of water or other ingredients that can induce bacterial growth), sometimes preservatives are needed.
***With the exception of a very few specific cases, companies that use water based products without preservatives are RISKING YOUR HEALTH.
Due to the Natural, People/Planet/Pet Friendly, Earth Based, Sustainable, & Non-Toxic philosophy we embrace, we are VERY selective in, & conscious of our suppliers & the ingredients we use.
We are pleased to announce that with those few products that need to be preserved, we will be working with a company called Active Micro Technologies, that manufactures preservatives using natural plant ferments that are FREE of GMO's, synthetics, & toxic chemicals. YAY!
We do not use all of their products, but a select few. Below is more information for your convenience:
- The preservatives we will use are made from ferments of Radish Root, Black Currants, Aspen Bark, Kimchii, Elderberry, Coconut, Lactobacillus.
- They are GMO Free with NO Ethoxylation, NO Irradiation, No Sulphonation, No Ethylene Oxide treatment, No Hydrogenation, No Preservatives, No Additives, No Solvents
