Preservatives

Presence of water, oils and other organic substances in cosmetic products makes them vulnerable to bacterial contamination. Contamination can degrade the cosmetic and cause skin infections too. Therefore, preservatives are added in order to prevent microbial growth and development in a cosmetic formulation. Halogenated derivatives, parabens and paraben sodium salts, thiazolinic derivatives, urea compounds are some of the preservatives used in cosmetic and personal care products.
