Preservatives in cosmetics prevent growing of bacteria. It stops and inhibit microbial cells and/or create an environment where bacteria, fungi, mold and other microorganisms difficult to spread.
Almost all of them require preservatives because water is typically the first ingredient. The presence of water makes it possible for waterborne bacteria to contaminate the water and can contaminate the product.
