Radish Root is the best all-natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. Now available in three sizes: .5, 4 or larger 16 ounce size!
If you use organic products or make your own skincare 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 use your moisturizer or revitalize your complexion, try our Leucidal® Liquid radish root ferment. This natural antimicrobial increases your beauty and skincare products' shelf life 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 protect against bacteria and other harmful growths. Remember that this is a mild antimicrobial 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. If you are a beginning formulator, use a 4% concentration. Just a 2-4% concentration of Leucidal® Liquid is a very effective anti-microbial natural alternative to synthetic preservatives. If your formula is water-based, you may want to use Leucidal Complete. Or consider adding preservatives such as Geogard 221 to protect your formula properly. We also recommend microbe or challenge testing of all end eco formulations.

As the organic movement grows in the skincare and cosmetics industry, more and more major brands turn to natural alternatives to the synthetic preservatives 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
