** Floral waters (or hydrolats) are mostly composed of water. This makes them very sensitive to all types of microbial contamination. It is for this reason that the cosmetic legislation requires us to add, in a very small proportion (0.2%), antimicrobial preservatives.

  • Sodium benzoate is derived from benzoic acid. Benzoic acid is present in some fruits as well as during the fermentation of milk.
  • Potassium sorbate, which is of plant origin, is a derivative of sorbic acid, an organic acid salt that exists naturally in many plants.
