Some of KLUR formulas include antimicrobials preservatives or combinations of food-grade, natural, and synthetic preservatives active at fairly low percentages.
The combination of cosmetic preservatives protect the integrity of the products, ensuring our products are safe and efficiently guarded against unseen bacteria, mold, and other harmful microorganisms. Every product we manufacture has passed lab stability testing and been proven to be safe without any parabens or formaldehyde-releasing preservative systems.
Consumers seeking "preservative free" skin care should understand that wet cosmetics are the ideal breeding grounds for bacterial growth, not always visible to the naked eye. Most preservative-free products are notorious for expiring very quickly and producing hundreds of types of molds–which can grow on numerous substances including dry goods, water, and oil-based cosmetics eventually go bad; once contaminated these materials can become more dangerous for human health than the cosmetic preservation system.
Our products are updated periodically; please take a moment to read the contents listing on the packaging of your product to be sure that the ingredients are appropriate for your personal use. We also encourage consumers to become proactive and conduct their research in furtherance of making informed and educated personal care decisions.
