While we certainly don’t want mold and bacteria growing in our personal care products, there are more natural preservatives available.
All of Bath and Body Creations’ products are paraben-free. We don’t want to take the chance of potentially causing any tumors, cancer, or reproductive issues. Some of our products are preservative-free. If it doesn’t contain water and won’t be stored in a shower where water could get inside, we don’t think it needs one. When we do add a preservative, it is a paraben-free, formaldehyde-free preservative that is gentle and effective.
Of course there is a large controversy about parabens and some companies claim there is no harm in using them. Do your own research if you are concerned and make smart choices. If a product could potentially cause cancer, I don't want to use it on my family and I certainly won't knowingly sell it to you :)
