Because Preservative free skin care means Zero Preservatives, you eliminate this source of allergies. Since most preservatives are “Big Time” allergens, this is a big thing. Ceela helps many people. Putting a preservative on eczema causes people to become allergic to that preservative. Especially relevant, given enough time and applications anyone will develop an allergy to these preservatives.
Consider preservative free skincare as an important step to simplify your life. You already know these are chemicals that kill everything. Something that kills all bacteria and mold can create real problems. Most cause gut problems. Simply put, these chemicals contain structures that are not part of our body. They are foreign to everything we need to be healthy. We tolerate them because most cosmetics will spoil without them. Finally, thru Ceela you no longer need to use them.
Most know that parabens have problems…we avoid the whole issue by being entirely paraben and formaldehyde free.
Most of all we all like fresh food. And if given a choice many would choose organic foods. People know that eating pesticides may not be entirely healthy. Most people wash our vegetables, a lot. We do this to get rid of the stuff our growers and food retailers put on them. The preservatives in skincare kill bacteria the way insecticides kill insects. We all know a low level of the stuff is sort of ok. Most of us just do not want to think about it.

No one has normal skin all of the time. The more you apply preservatives the more likely you are to become allergic to them.
Preservatives are antibiotics. They are designed to kill bacteria and mold. This protects your cosmetics. But everyone knows these preservatives cause problems, like allergies. When they kill most of your biome, your skin loses its natural protection. This makes for more skin rashes. And clearly more serious skin infections.
Physicians know preservatives are really very potent antibiotics. Most cosmetics use three or four different preservatives. The multiple preservatives can interact with our body in unpredictable ways. Some even carry warnings not to be used during pregnancy. And nursing a baby creates another set of problems. Preservatives alter our body’s biome. Just like antibiotics can alter your gut and body. With repeated antibiotic exposure healthy bacteria on your skin and gut may die.
Your healthy biome (the collection of bacteria on our skin) protects your skin. It keeps the peace with our body. Our skin has 30,000 different species living on it. Therefore, using antibiotic soaps wipes away these beneficial bacteria. Preservative and antibiotic resistance can lead to skin infections. Aggressive bacteria and molds can take over the skin. This happens after the defensive shield of beneficial bacteria is gone. Preservatives, like all antibiotics, will likely lose their effectiveness. When they become actively toxic, then things will change.
With eczema or atopic dermatitis, preservatives penetrate more easily. In skin disease from pimples to poison ivy, your skin’s barrier function fails. The irritated skin can let bacteria and mold penetrate into our blood. Preservatives follow right along.
When your skin cannot keep preservatives out of your body, you can develop serious systemic issues.
Applying preservatives when they can penetrate increases problems with frequent or daily application. With impaired skin, it is only a matter of time until you develop full-blown allergies. Odds are in favor of you becoming allergic to the preservatives.
Almost all skincare has multiple preservatives. Without an alternative skin care, you have a major public health concern. It remains more likely than not that preservatives (and in particular, multiple preservatives) contribute to the rising incidence of eczema in the world. If people put products containing preservatives on their skin with impaired barrier function you create the opportunity for your body to become allergic.
Consequently, these preservative chemicals can really bother people. In addition, most do not know that putting preservatives on red angry skin means they can penetrate into your body readily.
Preservatives can lead to selective breeding of preservative resistant bacteria.
Most noteworthy, many think eczema, in part, results from infection with Staphylococcus aureus. Often physicians recommend “bleach baths” as a last ditch to reduce skin infections. Many wonder if our skincare loaded with preservatives contributes to these problems.
While dilute bleach baths have long been the mainstay of treating these children. Maybe returning to simple skincare made with healthy ingredients will help. What we are doing as a country shows little benefit in stopping the growth of eczema.
Another relevant fact: washing skin with natural cleansers helps. We know using preservative-free skin care helps. Above all else, we believe that many have microscopic infections in their hair follicles. Without deep cleansing before applying creams, you can develop burning and itching. We need super clean skin with Ceela Cleansers to help this. This is a must for sensitive clients. Our cleansers and MagiCalm will increase your chance to overcome sensitivities. Completing all these steps helps to make for a pleasant preservative free skincare experience.
First of all, Ceela Airless Packaging reduces the risk of user contamination. Our creams use airless packaging systems. This keeps your “fingers out of the jar”.
Did you know the FDA allows a certain level of both bacteria and mold in your cosmetics? At Ceela, we never sell a product with bacteria or mold growing in it. We use extensive alternate strategies to keep your products clean.
“Airless” packaging helps make our creams safe. This makes for easy pump delivery of your creams. Testing what we manufacture run for contamination also helps. We have a “zero” tolerance for bacterial or mold growth.
Creating preservative free skincare means doing things without harsh chemicals. Ceela Naturals relies on airless pump packaging. We also manufacture in a very clean environment. We culture every batch with meticulous microbial study. In addition, we have developed formulae that meet the stringent standards of challenge testing defined by the FDA BAM.
In fact, our products have natural preservative qualities. We expect them to remain free of contamination during the life of the product. Ceela creams can be kept at room temperature but consider that natural products do best at 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit for long-term use. We recommend to use them within 30 days after opening.
In our experience, Ceela products discourage nasty human pathogens. While this statement has not been approved by the FDA, the US patent office recognizes these claims. We believe Ceela encourages “normal skin homeostasis”. We want to encourage our normal flora, so we do not use preservatives.
