I know this has has been a hot topic lately but I had a few questions myself that I'm hoping people on here can help enlighten me and I didn't want to hyjack someone elses thread. I hope this doesn't open a can of worms not my intention just want some clarity. How do lush get away with not using any preservatives in their shower jellies, shampoo bars, facial scrubs, facial oil bars (where they use a infusion in water), body lotions, shower scrubs? Or am I blind and just not seeing their preservatives listed on these products? In quite a few of them they have 'infustions' which are a herb infused in water, wouldn't this be a breeding ground for bacteria? not to mention their botanicals and foods they use. Also their shower scrubs and shower jellies are used in the shower over and over again in water and rubbed on your body. Their facial oil bars are rubbed on your face, put away then then next day rubbed on your face again. Their facial scrubs you would put your hands in and then use it to scrub your face... From what I've read on here if your product has water in it or comes in contact with water it whould have a preservative, but they don't so what are they doing to avoid them? are they just taking a risk?
