What is Sodium benzoate?

Sodium benzoate is one of a range of ingredients used as preservatives in Green People products. It is a food grade preservative with specific actions against gram- bacteria, moulds and yeasts.

Sodium benzoate is a naturally occurring substance found in many fruits including cranberries, raspberries and cherries. Whilst some people are sensitive to this ingredient when ingested (taken in by mouth), as it is used in cosmetics for external application it is completely safe and very well tolerated.

Sodium benzoate is permitted as a preservative by all organic certification bodies worldwide.
