What is Phenethyl Alcohol, Pentylene Glycol & Propanediol

One of the most exciting ingredients we introduced into the Fullmoon Serum is a multifunctional, broad spectrum preservative based on all  natural ingredients.

This natural preservative was chosen because it is  vegan, free from bovine spongiform encephalopathy, does not  contain pesticides, gluten free, cruelty free, tree nut/peanut free, does  not contain EU allergens, or heavy metals.​This is truly an all in one preservative perfect for our all  in one Fullmoon Serum!
