Are there specific actives that require using preservatives?  If yes, I would appreciate knowing which ones.  Or is it simply wise to use some preservative in everything I make?

Every cream or lotion you buy contains preservatives. Our Canvas base cream does too. If you do not "dilute" them too much, the concentration of preservatives will not change too mcuh and you will be fine.

Our sea kelp bioferment contains NO preservatives. If you use this as base, we suggest you add Germaben II to 1%. This is not needed if you are going to use the mix within  a week or so.

Our extracts are practically bacteria and mold free. But we introduce bacteria and mold in the cream as we use it. This is why we need the preservatives.
