Preservatives are essential and commonly used in a wide range of personal care products. DMDM hydantoin is a safe preservative used to prevent mold from developing while a product is in the shower. It is only used in very small amounts in our adult personal care products, and is not used in any baby products.

When developing our product formulations, we choose the ideal preservatives for each formula. Every preservative must clear our rigorous safety assessment process before we’ll allow it in one of our products. With DMDM hydantoin, the amount used is far below the limits recognized as safe by regulators and independent experts and is only used when our formulations would be impacted by the use of a different preservative.

It's our mission to create the best products possible for our customers and we stand behind the performance and rigorous testing of our products. This is why all of our ingredients are carefully selected and a full list is always included on the product’s label. We are constantly evolving our formulas to give consumers the best results.
