As there are some discussions on preservatives, natural or chemical... I thought I would share this, found it only few min ago.
Any feedback?

    So "natural" means no chemicals?

  • As chemist I do consider any molecule as a chemical, most people think: Chemical = Man made no? as Natural is made by mother nature...

    There are some very interesting new natural Preservatives under development. Looks like it is worth a try.

    @Max - I think the terms you're looking for are "natural" vs "synthetic"

    Let's not let marketers and other bullshitters bastardize the word "chemical."  Chemical should never be used when you mean synthetic.

    As far as natural preservatives go, anything is worth testing.  But plants have evolved anti-microbials to fight off specific microbes. Cosmetics, on the other hand, are attacked by a vast array of microbes. It will be surprising if there is any "natural" compound that will be suitably effective as synthetic preservatives. And if one is found, it will no doubt be made more effective by synthetically modifying it in the lab.
  • @MarkBroussard thanks for the link
    @Perry agree :)
