“Derma E’s number one priority is the safety and efficiency of our products. We use phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin because they have passed challenge tests where other preservatives have failed.
Additionally, they are acceptable according to The European Commission (EU), which has stringent requirements regarding the safety and toxicity of ingredients, and Whole Foods Market, as outlined in their Quality Standards for their Premium Body Care products.
Additionally, at Derma E we are constantly striving to provide the best quality products that deliver results. We are continually researching new ingredients and stabilising systems to provide you with formulas that are gentle, safe and effective. In order to do this, a preservative system of some form is essential. We use a very small fraction of 1%, in our formulations. Studies have shown that at a 2.2% concentration, these ingredients were non-irritating and nontoxic.”
