SWSCC March 8th 2018 Meeting - Day

Modern Cosmetic Preservation:  A Crash Course


We are all aware that preservatives play a vital role in cosmetic formulation. However, in the past we trusted that certain preservatives worked better – they were more reliable, relatively inexpensive and easy to use.  Of course, with the proliferation of social media, cosmetic blogging and ingredient data on the Internet, everything has changed.


Our customers now have unprecedented access to information about the potential health risks (whether accurate or not) of preservatives, in real time.  As we’ve seen in the past ten years, this trend can assertively influence the preservative choices a formulator may have, and undoubtedly guide marketing strategies for new product development.  This combined with the increased demand for natural cosmetics presents us with a unique challenge to overcome in the lab.


In this presentation Chris will review our common options for cosmetic preservation, leading up to recent challenges faced by the cosmetic chemist, the ongoing demand for natural alternatives and concluding with current and future trends in modern preservation.
