More Beauty Products Seeking Alternative Preservative Systems, an article in Global Cosmetic Industry (GCI) Magazine touches on an important and concerning topic within the beauty industry.
Preservatives, specifically parabens are a concern for many consumers. There seems to be mixed reviews on the topic as it relates to safety concerns. With the demand for natural/organic cosmetic products on the rise, there is a growing trend to avoid parabens. Natural/Organic products do not use parabens; instead, they use natural preservatives, such as fruit extracts.
Organic Report finds that there are stability issues with some natural materials – therefore raising safety issues. Companies are looking for options that are safe & effective – alternatives that can be used regardless of the product formula. This is where packaging plays a key role — Airless packages, in particular, have become popular because they are known to reduce contamination risks.
Taiki has always looked to kaizen solutions so the consumer has a safe and enjoyable product experience — Guided by this philosophy, Taiki introduced airless packages to the product line-up to offer a variation of tubes. More recently, Taiki launched EcoG+, an antimicrobial resin that offers complete package protection – with no/low preservatives.
EcoG+ gives consumers what they are looking for by offering the reduction or removal of skin irritating preservatives and enhanced product safety and performance.
