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.

12 out of 12 people would recommend this product31/07/2017, By NErinaLove this natural spray and its smell so refreshing. I dont use any other sprays12/07/2017, By ChristineNice product for summer as it cools down the skin - definitely not something I would use for winter. The smell is ok - but I was expecting a bigger wow factor.19/06/2017, By BigBossNot impressed at all.16/06/2017, By KSLovely, refreshing, invigorating - great treat.18/03/2017, By EugeneThe smell of the liquid sprayed on the skin is very fresh. Minty and Slight hint of ginger. Its a very clean smell and the liquid in my case absorbs very quick.
The liquid is fairly runny so you can spread it all over and it absorbs very quick (it obviously depends if your skin is very dry like mine).
Good to keep handy for daily use. I normally use it mid-day or if I want to alternate from my other aloe products.
Good quality product. Will definitely buy it again.28/11/2016, By MaxThis is one of my absolute favorites and I highly recommend it. Took me a couple of days to get used to the sweet scent, but now I have, Im addicted. I love using it both after showering at night (so much more convenient than lathering cream on) and as a refresher throughout the day in the Northern Cape heat. Really great value for money as it has lasted me ages despite the fact that I usually use it more than once a day. Leaves my skin silky soft, refreshed and smells lovely! Will definitely purchase again.24/10/2016, By NataleeThis product is really refreshing!05/01/2016, By HendrikHis products works well on sun burned skin, it is calming, cool and you keep your tan!
