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.
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, Organic, 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 we are 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 a bit of general information for your convenience:
- The preservatives we 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
