Parben free

I work in the natural skin care business, My company does use preservatives for our water based products but the preservatives we use are paraben free. We have opted to err on the side of caution for our customers who may have problematic skin types. For our powdered masks they do not contain presevatives and are sold as is. We believe that water based products have to be presereved but the choice is entirely up to formulators like myself. We are also SLS free.
The bigger companies are giving consumers the oppourtunity to buy what they want its a free world. Unless we want to force everyone to buy paraben filled products they should be given another alternative. Yes it is a question of CHOICE!
