Choosing the Right Preservative or Protection System for your Personal Care Product

The effective protection of cosmetic formulations with safe and reliable preservation systems is an important responsibility of the formulator.  This selection has to account for criteria such as consumers’ desires, country regulations, formulation type, as well as technical and company requirements.

The challenges involved with selection of an appropriate preservative system are clear. The options available to protect the integrity of a finished formulation require profound expertise as formulators need to ensure they are meeting all other required criteria, foremost protecting the consumer’s health against the risks of inappropriately preserved formulations.
