How to use it

Advanced: This ingredient is a highly effective broad spectrum preservative that is recommended for use at 0.5-1% and in a pH range of 3-7.5 in formulations. This water soluble preservative is recommended for lotions, creams, serums, shampoos, and other water-based personal care products. We do not recommend it for use in anhydrous products. Add during the cool down phase of production, but before the addition of any fragrance.

Quick Tips

NOTE: Preservative efficacy testing will be the only way to know if a preservative works for your product. Store in a cool, dark location.
