Sodium Benzoate is listed as a nasty in our pocket guide when used for food. But why then do we allow it in our cosmetics? The amount of sodium benzoate used in cosmetics is much smaller than in food as a preservative. Furthermore, the molecules are too large to be absorbed by the skin. This preservative has been allowed by Ecocert; the Soil Association and BDIH. It has been ranked by the EWG as having a low risk of 1. BUT there are reports circulating on the internet that warn against usage of the preservative even in cosmetics. We believe it is still one of the safer preservatives, but as always, we wanted you to be in the loop. The choice is yours to make.

2 out of 2 people would recommend this product26/06/2017, By AnneIt works to keep my curls together. You only need a small amount but one has to be very careful as it dries as a crusty white film in some parts of the hair where it had been applied slighly thicker. It has been a life saver on many occasions but also has a downside. I'd buy it again as there is no other affordable natural alternative that I've seen07/06/2017, By AshleighI bought this when I cut a fringe to help style it better,and it really worked! A very little bit goes a long way though! Too much will leave your hair feeling weighed down. A bit on my fingers and run through my hair before I style helps hold the style. and a bit on my fingers through damp hair helps control flyaways and keeps my curls defined!
