Do Aesop products contain the preservatives Methylchloroisothiazolinone (MCIT) and Methylisothiazolinone (MIT)?

Aesop does not use MCIT or MIT in any product designed to be left on the skin. 

A number of our rinse-off products contain a blend of MCIT and MIT, at levels well below the recommended limits set by regulatory agencies globally. This preservative blend is included in these formulations to protect the product and ensure longevity. 

At Aesop we undertake systematic reviews of all existing products on an ongoing basis to ensure that our formulas are always as robust and effective as possible. 

We are reformulating Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste and our Cleansing Masques to strengthen the efficacy and stability of the formulations, which will also include replacing both MCIT and MIT with alternative ingredients.
