Global Cosmetic Based Preservatives Market: Introduction
The cosmetic industry has witnessed significant growth over the past few years. Preservatives are essential constituents in many cosmetic products. Cosmetic based preservatives include the various ingredients mixed in cosmetic formulations to restrict the growth of microorganisms in them. Cosmetic based preservatives are added in various cosmetics such as creams and shampoos to curb and avoid the growth of microorganisms. The growth of microorganisms may degrade cosmetic products within a short time and therefore, the use of preservatives extends their life spans. Cosmetic based preservatives are broadly of two types, natural and synthetic. Natural based preservatives for cosmetics include castor oil, rosemary, coconut oil, oregano extract, salt, vinegar, alcohol, sugar and diatomaceous earth. Natural preservatives are safer as compared to synthetic preservatives; however, synthetic preservatives offer superior performance. Thus, manufacturers of cosmetics prefer synthetic preservatives over natural ones in many cosmetic product formulations. Synthetic based cosmetic preservatives include optiphen, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, organic acids, isothiazolinones and methylparben.
Cosmetic based preservatives are regulated more stringently in the cosmetic industry today. The tight regulations governing these preservatives can be attributed to the risks associated with using these ingredients. A list of chemicals are restricted from using in cosmetics, in various developed countries.
