The Leucidal Liquid Debate Continues

Hi @AOL! I have the same thoughts about Naticide that I do about all the other “natural” preservatives coming out (Leucidal, grapeseed extract, Naticide, etc…) and that is that we need time to see if there is additional information not being disclosed. Naticide is listed as a fragrance and we know fragrances have a lot in them. And we also know companies hide information that may cause consumers to be concerned. It’s just too hard to say so early in the game. When I worked in the beauty business years ago, parabens and that whole family was touted as the best new – and safe – thing. And now we know that is not actually true. The testing is not sufficient. The companies do their own testing. I think it’s a wait and see.

Hi there, interesting article. Have you looked into Naticide as an alternative preservative? WOuld be interesting to hear your thoughts.

@overthepond – yes, you are exactly right. The issue is the water. Thanks!

I am pretty sure you don’t need a preservative for anhydrous products…only water based ones.

Very interesting set of articles, thank you. I was just reading about AMTicide Coconut, and anti mold, anti fungal that AMT developed to be used in conjunction with their Leucidal products, since Leucidal is only supposed to be an antibiotic. Does anyone know if there are the same issues with NataPres? If not, then perhaps using NataPres with AMTicide Coconut would cover all bases. This study though is making me question anything developed by AMT. Has anyone had any issues with powder/oil combination products such as eyeshadows?
