A preservative is an anti-microbial solution that helps to prevent
fungi(mould) and other things from growing in your products.
Preservatives are needed in any product that has water in it to prevent
bacteria and mould from growing in it.
Many people like their products and soaps to be all-natural, but
sometimes there just isn’t a way to make everything 100% natural.
Some of the preservatives are: –
Germaben – Germaben is a great preservative to use when you are making
lotions, as it helps to keep them nice and creamy.
Optiphen – Optiphen is a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative. It
is best to use in your oil-based recipes like shampoos, conditioners, and
Optiphen ND–Optiphen ND is a water-soluble, broad spectrum preservative. This
preservative works best in surfactant-based systems, shampoos,
conditioners, gels, creams, and lotions.
Phenonip – Phenonip is a liquid preservative that helps to suppress the
full range of microbial growth in your cremes, lotions, salt scrubs,
dusting powders and liquid soap bases. When making products at a higher
temperature, this is going to be the preservative you are going to want
Optiphen Plus – Optiphen Plus is a water-soluble, paraben- and
formaldehyde-free preservative. You can use Optiphen Plus in any recipe
you are using water in and it helps to protect against bacteria, mould
growth and even yeast!Be social with me
