Green Beauty Tip #3: Look for anhydrous (waterless) products –they’re naturally free from preservatives.
Because not only do microbes adore one another, they also adore water! It's the environment that allows them to do their thing. So, just look at the labels. If water or anything that sounds a little “watery”, like aqua or aqueous extract, is listed as one of the first few ingredients, that indicates preservatives must also be in the product.
