Diazolidinyl Urea and why you should avoid it


Why is it used in cosmetics and personal care products?


Diazolidinyl Urea prevents or retards bacterial growth, and thus protects cosmetics and personal care products from spoilage. If a product contains Diazolidinyl Urea, chances are your product was
sitting on a shelf in a warehouse for 6 months
.
Diazolidinyl Urea is a formaldehyde releaser and a skin irritant.

Skin care products that are made fresh should not need these types of preservatives.
There are much safer preservatives that can be used to maintain the freshness and quality of products.


Let's leave the formaldehyde for the morticians ... and keep it out of skin care!
