A favourite preservative!

This is one of my favourite broad-spectrum preservatives as it can be added to the heated water phase, works great in a shampoo bar as it's a powder, and it doesn't have any scent. It does require a buffer solution (sodium citrate, as recommended by the manufacturer) in order to prevent the pH from drifting downward in your formulations and possibly destabilizing your formula, but once you get the hang of stabilizing it, it's AMAZING! No need for Optiphen Plus (which is not accepted in natural formulations anyway). Usage rate is actually 0.75 - 2% (not 0.075%). A little goes a long way!
