Just think what would happen to a jar of ’natural’ ingredients sitting on your vanity... The smell alone would keep me from openingrepparttar 131085 lid, let alone touching it! So beauty products, like foods, use preservatives to give them added shelf time. When you buy products, they have to last through storage withrepparttar 131086 company, shipping and still have some time left for you to use them. As forrepparttar 131087 term ‘natural’ it is not even regulated. This means any company can call their product natural, no matter what it contains.
