Q: What are natural preservatives?

A natural preservative is a preservative that occurs in nature, and isn’t made through a chemical process. Chemical preservative names you may see include: BHA, BHT, and Ethoxyquin.

All of Black Hawk’s preservatives are natural. We use a blend of Vitamin C (citric acid), Rosemary extract, and Vitamin E (tocopherol). This is a great alternative, as not only is it chemical-free, but it also provides added health benefits. Hence our phrase Every ingredient matters that you’ll see on our products.
