Phenoxyethanol is a widely used synthetic preservative that has global approval for use in all cosmetic products
in concentrations up to 1%.

It has broad spectrum activity against many pathogens you don’t want multiplying in your skincare products.

naturally in green tea, just like parabens occur naturally in berries and other natural foods.
