is the most important aspect to natural products. Aromatic Essentials uses the Absolute BEST and preservation which is of vital importance, is no exception.

I use essential oils with every product and they themselves are anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, anti-septic and not only protect the product and keep it fresh but they are delivered to your skin and continue working.

I add Vitamin E which is the best for preserving natural oils or they would turn rancid. Rosemary extract is a very powerful anti oxidant and preservative and that is included. The fact that I have managed to find a preservation system that is solely natural and Palm oil free, is a great feat which I’m proud of.

It is the ONLY known preservative to date that is completely Palm oil free, Vegan is an Almond derived broad spectrum Over 99.9% effective against all tested microbial growths. A High performance naturally derived growth inhibitor like no other!

So Natural in fact, When labelling products I am permitted to use the term “Preservative free” but I don’t, because for me, to be absolutely transparent, it isn’t! If it was preservative free there would likely be a film of various coloured moulds and flourishing micro organisms on top. Ewww!

It is derived from nuts though so that is the ONLY possibly negative thing to someone with an allergy, but common every-day preservatives, used in EVERYTHING we consume, are believed to be cancer causing chemicals, wearing us all down, and all of them are dangerous, and unfortunately used in excess. Shampoo, Conditioner, all running down your back every night, such a large area of skin, your soap, or rather chemical concoction bar, all over your face, body, sensitive areas, chemicals, deadly chemicals are being absorbed into your bloodstream like squeezing a sponge. Don’t get me started on Deodorant, that close to the lymph glands, that close to the breasts, carcinogens? Please stop!

If every bath and body product you used was Aromatic Essentials brand, and even if you enjoyed it as a snack, you would probably outlive everyone and look totally amazing doing it! haha.
This magnificent preservative, although costs an arm, is worth being able to say
