Do Aesop products contain Phenoxyethanol?

Phenoxyethanol is a highly effective, versatile preservative that confers anti-microbial benefits—preventing the growth and reproduction of micro-organisms.

We utilise Phenoxyethanol in a number of our formulations due to its wide-ranging efficacy.

Phenoxyethanol has been assessed as safe for use in cosmetic products by leading cosmetic agencies in the USA, UK, Europe and Asia, among others, at use levels up to one per cent. Its inclusion in select Aesop products is at levels well below the limits set by global regulatory agencies.
