Better Understanding Preservatives

We think understanding preservatives in skin care is important.  While scrub me™ products do have antimicrobial and antioxidant ingredients, we do not use preservatives in our products.  Some preservatives can cause skin reactions or sensitivity and are also known to be unhealthy.  There is a wide range of preservatives so it can get a little confusing figuring out what is okay to use and what is not.
