A note from our supplier: Pentylene Glycol has a zero listed hazard rating in Cosmetic Data Base and there are 23 published articles which provide interesting data and note studies done back in the 1970’s – in all of these, there was only one case listed of Dermatitis in Belgium and two cases in Cleveland, Ohio, in which the use of a topical cream containing Pentylene Glycol was suspected (not determined) to be the cause of the Dermatitis. www.ewg.org (Skin Deep Data Base) rates Pentylene Glycol as zero hazard. On www.goodguide.com it is listed as having no health concerns and is not on their list of hazardous ingredients. We use Pentylene Glycol only in our creams and lotions, which contain a higher water content and therefore need a proven strong preservative, and we consider it to be the safest and healthiest preservative currently available in the absence of a reliable natural preservative.

Not the same

The latest batch of this body butter I received was not the same as the previous two times. Did the formula change? It used to be rich and I loved the way it soothed my skin. Now I feel I have to keep re-applying. Bring back the old formula.....

I have extremely dry skin particularly in winter this product does a great job of rehydrating my skin! It also goes on easily doesn leave that oily feeling which I really dislike.

I love the Victorian Garden products, but this one particularly is awesome. Its easy to use, isn greasy after application and has a most lovely scent to it once it comes onto your skin. Ive had many compliments.

I got a sample of this and was addicted immediately. It is really luxurious. I quickly ran out of the sample and bought a tub of this stuff - boy, I am so glad I did. I have used it with great success on my hands, body - then I tried it on my face - oh my goodness! Transformative. Smells strongly of lavender - a very healing oil. I now use it on my hands, cuticles, face - even my hair. Crazy but effective. My skin is soft and supple and glowing.

This is such a luxurious body butter, my hands have been thanking me every since I received a sample size from my previous order. And the smell...o my goodness, I just want to put it on constantly and smell myself. Definitely in love with this one and the other Victorian Garden products I have bought have been a match made in heaven. So happy. Thank you for the gift Faithful to Nature team #9829;
