To use: Shake, wash hair or body or add one to three caps full to the Bath.

We have cut right back on preservatives, and use natural ones as much as possible. Using a full spectrum preservative system allows us to use smaller amounts, still ensuring fungus, mould and bacteria do not grow. Anyone saying they do not use preservatives is doing you a disservice, as water and oil will grow fungus within a week without them.

Kobashi has never used SLS, but the fact is there is not a problem with SLS. The SLS scare was created by companies who want a competitive edge.

Phenoxyethanol is an organic compound that is in our Creams, Lotions, Soap, Shampoo and Bath Products at ~ 0 .3%.

Phenoxyethanol is an alternative to formaldehyde-releasing preservatives.
In Japan and the EU, its concentration in cosmetics is restricted to 1%. Kobashi uses 2/3 less than that used by the strictest countries.

When we did our formulations, Phenoxyethanol was the preservative that all Organic associations accepted, until 2012.

These can come from natural organic sources, but they usually are synthetic. I would say Creams, Lotions, are 99.1% natural origin. You could say the Shampoo and Bath are 99.1% natural. The process for making most shampoo and soap on earth is not 100% natural, although this could be argued.


We have been using these preservatives for over 21 years without a problem. Our choice of preservative after much careful research, as it was last tested on animal's pre 1975. Although animal testing is done all over the world, and we do not agree with it. As committed Vegans this was and is of importance to us.


The reality is all organic or synthetic compounds have their harmful and safe dose. It's all about dose and time. Example too much water will do what? When it is about cosmetics we should really stop all the scare mongering about anything used in the right dose; humans thrive and adapt. I would rather use something good to stop bacteria, mould and fungus, than be damaged by something that may not work. Most natural preservatives have to be used at too high a dose to work. If we find something that will work and that is safer we will change and use them.

Phenoxyethanol began to be used as an alternative to the formerly popular Paraben preservatives. I am always looking for the best. It takes years of testing to make sure the product is safe for the public.

Synthetic parabens are scientifically known to be safer than most natural compounds at workable doses.
Are you against parabens? Most likely yes, because of the scare mongering by natural companies like us.

Many of the companies that took preservatives out are having bacteria, mould and fungus problems. Even the so called natural preservatives won't give protection for that long.

Bacteria, mould and fungus can kill or harm us.

This preservative is very good against bacteria, mould and fungus.

1.) Benzyl alcohol is produced naturally by many plants and is commonly found in fruits and teas. It is also found in a variety of essential oils including jasmine, hyacinth, and ylang-ylang. Use in health care: Benzyl alcohol is used as a bacteriostatic preservative at low concentration in intravenous medications, cosmetics and topical drugs.

The use of benzyl alcohol as a 5% solution has been approved by the U.S. FDA for the treatment of head lice in children older than 6 months and in adults.

2.) Potassium sorbate is the potassium salt of sorbic acid, chemical formula CH3CH=CH-CH=CH-CO2K. It is a white salt that is very soluble in water (58.2% at 20 °C). It is primarily used as a food preservative (E number 202).[4] Potassium sorbate is effective in a variety of applications including food, wine, and personal care products. While sorbic acid is naturally occurring in some berries, virtually all of the world's production of sorbic acid, from which potassium sorbate is derived, is manufactured synthetically.

3.) Tocopherols (TCP) are a class of organic chemical compounds (more precisely, various methylated phenols), many of which have vitamin E activity.

4.) Phenoxyethanol is an organic compound.
Natural occurrences: Phenol is a normal metabolic product, excreted in quantities up to 40 mg/L in human urine. Occurrence in whisky: Phenol is a measurable component in the aroma and taste of the distinctive Islay Scotch whisky, generally ~30 ppm, but it can be over 160ppm in the malted barley used to produce whisky. This amount is different and presumably higher than the amount in the distillate.

Really needs to get it's act together if they think when you don't want a bag they donate 1p to the rainforest foundation. A glass of milk cost less than a glass of water. If they served Vegan cakes they'd really be doing something for the rainforest.
