Are raw ingredients safe to use past the indicated shelf life?
I have some decyl glucoside (and) sodium lauryl lactylate that I bought a year ago and partially used. about half it left. Making Cosmetics says it should be stable about 12 months. I want to use it to make a shampoo and bodywash, but not sure if it is safe. Looks and smells the exact same as the way I bought it and I have stored it in a dark, cool place as the directions indicated.
Do you think it is safe to use? If I use it will the shelf life of my final product be less?
