Preservatives (preservatives in cosmetics)
The use of preservatives in cosmetics is necessary to prevent changes caused by microbes and contamination during formulation, transport, storage or use by consumers.
Consumers generally prefer natural preservatives over synthetic ones, which allows the product to be described as "natural" or "organic".
Alternatives to preservatives, suspected of skin sensitization or endocrine disruption, are still being sought. The cosmetics industry is trying to innovate by sterilizing cosmetics or sterile airless packaging.
