Naturality is very important to contemporary consumers as people look to opt-in for products that are good-for-them and as a result, plant-based preservatives are starting to emerge as an ingredient in cosmetic and self-care products. Using a synthetic-free option was very important for Spekr when making its pain relief lotion that was powered by CBD but the company had some difficulty finding one that works. Eventually, they did.
The plant-based preservative in Spekr's CBD Pain Relief Lotion is called Leucidal SF Complete and it is developed by Micro Technologies. The solution is made through the combination of Lactobacillus Ferment & Lactobacillus & Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract.The resulting plant-based preservative is water-soluble, vegan, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-mold , and is considered to be compatible with a "wide range of cosmetic ingredients.
