Used with care
Phenoxyethanol is a preservative used in skincare products which has been deemed a safer alternative to 'nasty� parabens. While there are no truly �safe� preservatives, we take great care in the selection and use of such ingredients. We are required to use a preservative in our products to prevent them from going off very quickly. Bacteria and mould thrive in watery environments and typically love the plant based ingredients that we use.
