OTHER THINGS TO KNOW
WATER: If water is listed on the label then a preservative system must be included in order to inhibit the growth of potentially harmful microbes. To sell products in the EU and worldwide there is strict guidance on using preservatives. What is at the discretion of the brands is the time they spend to get the lowest effective level required and the choice of preservative system. We use a natural association approved preservative at low levels.
