Honesty in our Ingredients:
At Essential Living, it is a core value that we provide the information necessary for you to feel comfortable with any product that touches your skin and body. Because of that, we fully disclose all of the ingredients (there are only two) in our witch hazel toner, the testing specifications in place to ensure that every batch is perfectly clean and pure. The first of the two ingredients in our toner is 100% pure witch hazel distillate, made from the twigs of USDA certified non-GMO witch hazel. The second ingredient is Phenoxyethanol, a preservative that protects against bacteria contamination.
It is important to note, that many “all natural” witch hazel toners do not always clearly state that they use Parabens as a preserving agent in their witch hazel solution. Instead, many list Grape Seed Extract – without communicating that GSE contains the parabens used as a preservative. While all witch hazel requires a preservative to prevent the growth of bacteria and yeast once the bottle is open and exposed to the air or the bacteria of your skin, a Grape Seed Extract / Paraben laden preservative isn’t necessary. You can read more information about Grape Seed Extract from the Organic Consumers’ Association at: www.organicconsumers.org/news/truth-about-grapefruit-seed-extract.
