I've read that Deep Steep products are FREE of Chemical Preservative. What are Chemical Preservatives?
In cosmetics manufacturing, "preservatives" are used to combat the growth of bacteria and mold. Bacteria and mold will grow in any product that contains water: lotions, liquid soaps, body washes, cleansers, etc. So in essence, just about any product you put on your body has the chance of growing bacteria and mold unless it is "preserved."
Unfortunately, chemical preservatives (hundreds of them) are used frequently in personal care products because they are easy to obtain, cost very little, and, until recently, no one questioned their prolific use.
Synthetic preservatives are considered by leading dermatological associations to be the number one cause of contact dermatitis (a localized rash or irritation of the skin caused by contact with a foreign substance). Additionally, several commonly used chemical preservatives have been scientifically linked to breast cancer and other adverse conditions of the skin and body.
For your reference, we've compiled a list of the most commonly used synthetic preservatives to look out for:
Parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Propyl, Ethyl)
Are synthetic chemical preservatives necessary?
No! Over 25 years of research Deep Steep's chemists have developed the technology to create a 100% NATURAL preservative system that omits all synthetic ingredients. Using this system, ALL of our products pass standardized microbial challenge tests for killing bacteria and mold, honor all FDA standards, and are guaranteed a healthy 2-year shelf life (but we hope you get a chance to pamper yourself sooner than two years!)
What makes your Bubble Bath so bubbly?
Those silky bubbles are generated by a natural, vegetable-based ingredient called Cocamidopropyl glucosides.
Cocamidopropyl glucoside is a derivate of cocamide and glucoside. Cocamide is a mixture of the amides of the fatty acids (essential fatty acids lubricate the body and aid in the transportation of oxygen to the cell) obtained from coconut oil. Glucoside is a nutrient that plays an important role in the health of the cardiovascular system. Studies have suggested that glucoside, along with other nutrients like vitamins B6 and B12, helps to keep blood vessels clear of toxic elements.

What is the Moisture Stick good for?
This moisture stick is great for the lips, feet, knuckles, and elbows…or anywhere that needs a little extra long-lasting moisture. Going back to the difference between this and petroleum products, this product will NOT clog your pores, so if you have really dry skin around your mouth, or your chin, like you sometimes get in the dry winter, or when you have a sunburn, you can apply it freely and guilt-free.
Ingredient Highlights - Organic Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Infusion of Organic Herbs; Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Extract, Beeswax, Organic Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Organic Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Aroma (Organic and Wildcrafted Aroma Blend), Tocopherol (Vitamin E) Natural.
The Natural oils and butters in our Moisture Stick provide Essential Fatty Acids, which are very good for the skin. Essential Fatty Acids are part of the lipid layer of your skin. Since they are chemically similar to your skin, the oils and butters in this product supplement the skin's natural ability to eliminate toxins, regenerate cell growth, and retain moisture.
