Why Use Preservatives in Body Polishes?

 **BTBs body polish formulation is different than the one featured in this video as it has been improved upon!


Why do we use preservatives in our body polishes?

In the absence of water - fungus, bacteria, and mold do not have the ideal environment to survive. However, with water, they thrive. It's safe to say that if a product has water in it, it will need a preservative. 

If that is the case, why use preservative in a body polish that doesn't have water in its formulation? That's a great question and our answer to that is that water will more than likely be introduced to the body polish when they are being used in showers. We add preservatives to our body polishes as a preventative measure and to help extend the shelf-life of the product from a few days to several months. In the end, our customer wins!

What preservatives does BTB use?

BTB uses premium and skin safe preservatives that are cleared and approved for use in Whole Foods, Sephora, Ulta, and more. They offer full spectrum preservation of your body polish and are gentle on the skin.
