New alternative preservation systems for cosmetic products are gaining
popularity. In its new Technical Insights report, Organic Monitor (www.organicmonitor.com) finds the move to new alternative preservative systems is driven by high consumer demand for natural and organic cosmetics as well as the growing trend of formulators avoiding parabens.

Parabens are the most widely used preservatives, present in thousands of personal care products that include moisturizers, shampoos, toothpastes, lubricants and gels. However, a growing number of formulators are avoiding them because of possible safety concerns, according to Organic Monitor.

Natural and organic cosmetic products do not use conventional preservatives, such as parabens and phenoxyethanol. Natural and organic products have traditionally used natural preservatives like grapefruit seed extract, however new materials and technologies are gaining acceptance.

This topic and more will be discussed at the Sustainable Cosmetics Summit (www.sustainablecosmeticssummit.com) May 17-19 in New York City.
