Suitable for oily skin
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.

5 out of 10 people would recommend this product06/05/2019, By AGThis mask contains too much oil, therefore isn't really suitable for oily skin. When I used it, I had to wash my face again with soap to remove the oily feeling. It is also rather thin, so it's hard to get a good layer of coverage over your skin. It has nice ingredients, but maybe needs to be reformulated.16/07/2018, By JanLove this product. Leave on for 30 minutes to be most effective.30/05/2018, By TCMy face turned bright red when I used it or the for the first time and the next day if was still very flushed and irritated. I tried it once more two weeks later and the results were even worse. I will not recommend this product - maybe for very strong and very oily skin, but not sure if the ingredients are exactly what it says on the sticker.11/05/2018, By JLove it. Works for my (sometimes) oily and acne prone scin28/02/2018, By ChantelleEven though it smells lovely and feels good, did nothing for my oily skin, unfortunately :(29/01/2018, By WillowChildI like this product so far, I've had it for a while and it seems to be working for the oily skin problem.06/12/2017, By TraceyI got this as a sample but did not see the greatest results, perhaps it needs to be used over a longer time.25/07/2017, By ReneI love this product - to achieve best results I leave it on for about 30 mins.05/07/2011, By ShelleyNatraloe products were all re-formulated with natural ingredietns in 2009...the sticker is used over the original ingredients rather than waste all the original tubes :-)02/04/2011, By RenéThis product contains ingredients that have been covered up with a sticker that shows less harmfull ingredients. Upon removal of the sticker I found other harmful ingredients like parabens, Phenoxyethanol, TRIETHANOLAMINE, etc. So frustrating to have to buy a harmful product yet it's sold as 'SAFE'
