John Masters Organics announced the replacement of their skin care line today with newly re-formulated products including a couple USDA certified organic skin care products as well as a couple certified organic hair care products. Every ingredient is certified organic or approved by ECOCERT and the line also now passes the Whole Foods Premium Labeling program. John Masters' own words about the new line and the new preservatives he's using:
"Each skincare product has been reformulated with performance in mind. So not only are they all more organic, they will perform as well or better than the formulas they are replacing. The certified-organic extracts and essential oils are the best to be found, and the aromas are beautiful yet subtle. And they all use two great, new preservatives. Radish root extract and aspen bark extract are all-natural anti-microbials that are years ahead in skincare formulations. I'm so proud to be among the first to use them.
Radish Root Extract: This natural preservative derived from Korean Leuconostoc kimchii is an effective microbial and protects against bacteria and fungus. The radish root is harvested from non-GMO stock and is extracted without the use of industrial solvents. It's compliant with both USDA and EcoCert regulations.
Aspen Bark Extract: This natural preservative is extracted from the American aspen tree. Medicinally, the bark has long been used as an analgesic and to reduce fevers. The bark of the aspen tree is rich in salicylates, which help defend against invading parasites. The extract is effective at inhibiting mold, yeast and other bacteria. In addition, the extract also acts to help make the skin feel smooth."
