Grapefruit Seed Extract
Average Product Rating: 4.8 / 5 (Based on 4 Customer Reviews)
Grapefruit Seed Extract is derived from the seeds and membrane portion of the grapefruit, and is gluten-free. It is reputed to have effective broad spectrum anti-microbial properties. Specifically, Grapefruit Seed Extract has demonstrated its ability to kill or inhibit the growth of a wide array of potentially harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoan parasites. It has become increasingly popular in manufacturing circles as a natural preservative, though it is important to note that Grapefruit Seed Extract is not in itself a full-spectrum preservative.
INCI: Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract (and) Glycerin.
• Can be used in a wide variety of personal care formulation for reliable preservation.

This is my favourite preservative. I ony use grapefruit seed extract and various essential oils as preservatives, and my creams last very well.
