Leucidal Liquid® Radish Root

The best natural alternative to synthetic preservatives.

Now available in three sizes: .5 oz, 4 oz. or larger 16 oz. Size!

If you use organic products or you make your own skin care recipes at home, you probably have a refrigerator overflowing with skincare products. Fresh products without a preservative only last a day or two. If you don’t want to go to the fridge every time you want to moisturize or revitalize your complexion, try our Leucidal Liquid radish root ferment. This natural preservative increases the shelf life of your beauty and skincare products without adding any harmful synthetic ingredients.

Fermented with lactic acid bacteria (leuconostoc kimchii), Leucidal Liquid provides a degree of protection against mold, yeasts, and bacteria. With its light scent, it won’t overpower any lotion, cream, or serum. Plus, it’s water soluble, making it easy to mix with your homemade or existing products.

When creating homemade recipes, be sure to test your concentration of Leucidal Liquid to ensure that you’re adding enough to provide protection against bacteria and other harmful growths. Remember that this is a mild preservative and will not keep skincare products fresh indefinitely. You can improve any product’s shelf life, though, with the addition of Leucidal Liquid and by storing it in a cool, dry place.

Approved by ECO-CERT for use with certified organic cosmetics. It is also on the whole foods premium list of accepted preservatives. Just a 2-4% concentration of Leucidal Liquid has been shown to be a very effective anti-microbial natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. If you want to make your own natural beauty and skincare products, order a bottle of Leucidal Liquid today.


Leucidal Liquid is a mild preservative with antimicrobial properties that can safely and effectively prolong the shelf life of natural and organic cosmetics and skincare products.

How to Use:

Add a 2-4% concentration of Leucidal Liquid to your homemade or existing skincare products. Be sure to blend thoroughly until you achieve a uniform mixture. The Leucidal Liquid cannot protect a product from bacteria, yeast, and mold if it is not mixed properly into the solution. When finished, store Leucidal Liquid and your skincare products in a cool, dry place.


For external use only. Leucidal Liquid is approved for use with organic cosmetics and is not to be used as a preservative for foods or beverages. Do not ingest.

As the organic movement grows in the skincare and cosmetics industry, more and more major brands are turning to natural alternatives to the synthetic ingredients they’ve traditionally used. You’ll find Leucidal Liquid in all kinds of skincare products from many different brands, including:

  • Naked Sun Tropical Tanning Solution
  • Osmosis Skincare Hydralift Firming Gel Mask
  • Dermatologica Age Reversal Eye Complex
  • Elixir Vitae: The Ultimate Wrinkle Solution by Tata Harper

You can use the same preservative that major cosmetics brands use for their products for a fraction of the cost. For most of us, a $320 bottle of Elixir Vitae by Tata Harper is out of reach. And if you have an organic skincare or cosmetic product that doesn’t include any preservatives, you can keep it fresh longer by adding 2-4% Leucidal Liquid.

Safe, Natural Preservative
I am so glad I found Leucidal Liquid for my homemade serums. I have sensitive skin and can't use products with parabens and chemicals. Now I can make my own skincare and know that all the ingredients are safe and won't irritate my skin.

Best All-Natural Preservative
I am so excited that there is finally an alternative to chemical and synthetic preservatives! It makes me feel good knowing that I can make my own serums and have them last without having to put parabens in them. Leucidal Liquid is great for oil-based products or those products that need a mild preservative. If you are making a serum that is water-based or contains mostly water, then you will want to use the stronger version, Leucidal Complete. This one can tend to be not as clear, but it provides better protection against yeast, mold and bacteria.
