Skin 2 Skin® Care is proud to introduce the use of a natural Honeysuckle Preservative System in all of their products. The beauty of this preservative, which is comprised of Lonicera Caprifolium and Loicera Japonica Flower Extract, is that it is 100% natural and biodegradable! It is also the first preservative system to boast anti-swelling benefits. This combination of ingredients requires the minimum concentration possible to still active micro standards in skincare.
Although Honeysuckle Preservative is a paraben, it is a natural paraben called p-hydroxybenzoic acid. It acts as a defensive chemical against harmful micro-organisms. With all the controversy surrounding parabens being used in beauty products, Skin 2 Skin® Care is educating consumers by sharing the truth about natural parabens, dispel rumors, and maintain their status as an ethical skin care company.
The generally held misconception is that all parabens are evil and to be avoided at all costs. This is true for some parabens but not natural parabens. In fact, all plants naturally produce p-hydroxybenzoic acid many plants, including carrots, olives, cucumbers, honeysuckle, and ylang ylang, depend on them as a defense system against micro-organisms. They are like a plant’s version of antibodies.
It must be emphasized that while some parabens are a big no-no, there is no credible evidence that links natural parabens to illness; after all, we consume them regularly in our everyday lives! Here is just a short list of products that we’re exposed to on a day-to-day basis: Mangos, Black and Green Tea, Royal Bee Jelly, Honey, Alfalfa, Almonds, Anise, Apple, Banana, Barley, Broccoli, Cabbage, Conola, Cauliflower, Carrot, Cherry, Chickpea, Clover, Coffee, Corn, Cumin, Damiana, Fennel, Flaxseed, Garlic, Green Been, Hop, Lemon, Lemon Balm, Licorice, Lima Bean Seeds, Mint, Oats, Oregano, Pea, Pinot Bean Seeds, Pomegranate, Plum, Potato, Rice, Rice Bran, Rye, Rope, Sage, Sesame, Soybean, Split Pea, Sunflower Seed, Thyme, Tumeric, Vergena, Wheat, Wheat Bran, Wheat Germ, Yam & Yeast and the oils (Olive, Corn, Safflower, Wheat Germ, Soybean, Rice, Bran, Peanut, and Coconut.)
