Preservatives in skin care products
Why is it good that a skin care product does not contain preservatives you might think? The thing is that several preservatives used in skin care products have been shown to be endocrine disruptors, while others have been shown to be allergenic.
Preservatives are used in many different foods and cosmetic products to make the product last for a long time. The vast majority of them are harmless to most of us – at least of what we know. But time is changing and things are discovered. Say parabens for example, which appeared to be endocrine disruptors and then they have been banned from using in skin care products for children. But they were used in lots of products before then…
White creams contains preservatives
Common white creams always contain preservatives because they also contain water. When a skin care product contains water along with other ingredients, there is a risk of developing bacteria and therefore it is necessary to preserve the product so that it can last longer than a few days in the refrigerator. It is not always parabens that are used as preservatives, there are many different kinds of preservatives.
You can thus be quite sure that all the skin care products you can buy that contain water – also contain preservatives. In the ingredient list of the individual product, the content of water will be written with the INCI designation “AQUA”.
WeeCare Lanolin Ointment does not contain water or anything that makes preservatives necessary. The product can last for 12 months after opening.
