Natural Ingredients That Preserve
There are a lot of synthetic chemical preservatives. Some of them are even found in products that claim to be all natural. While it’s important to make sure the cosmetic and skin care products you use are safe, there is concern over the harmful effects of many of the synthetic preservatives.
You’re probably already aware that a number of natural and organic product lines boast of preservative free products. You may have even tried some of them.
So how is it that some companies claim that they must use the synthetic preservatives to make sure their products are not comtaminated and others claim that they can produce safe products without chemical preservatives?
Well, the answer is partly in the terminology.
While most countries in the world have laws regulating preservatives, the U.S. does not. In the U.S. any substance can be used as a preservative if it passes a challenge test.
This is a benefit when it comes to the many natural substances that possess antimicrobial activity, even though they are not classified as preservatives. However, it’s of utmost importance that the antimicrobial natural ingredients be used in adequate quantity to insure the product is properly protected from contamination.
Some of the natural ingredients that can act as preservatives include:Essential Oils
We are getting ready to release the just-updated EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in partnership with renowned medical expert on natural health and wellness Dr. Andrew Weil. But first, we wanted to give loyal EWG supporters like you an exclusive first look at the latest Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists.
Our exclusive EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides lists fruits and vegetables based on their levels of pesticide residue. Because you’re an EWG fan, you can see the guide before anyone else and find out how favorites like apples, spinach and potatoes — and for the first time ever, blueberries — rank.
Ready to eat fewer pesticides?
We at EWG always recommend eating more fruits and veggies and buying them organic if you can, but we know that sometimes they’re too expensive or flat-out unavailable.
That’s why we created EWG’s Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides — so you know which fruits and vegetables have the lowest pesticide residues and which you should try to always buy organic.
