All our products are 100% natural without any water, chemicals or preservatives. If you look at most labels on creams and lotions, the first ingredient is water. If you have water in a product, you need to have a preservative to prevent mold. Water is used in many cosmetic products and therefore there are also preservatives. Our products are preservative and chemical free. I knew that I didn’t want any chemicals or preservatives on my sensitive skin. The good news about preservatives is that it helps the products have a longer shelf life.
