Does this product need a preservative ❓
Before I ask my question I just want to say I love preservatives. I have no issue with them. I’m not a “natural formulator.” I use formaldehyde releasers like Germall and parabens like Phenonip all the time. I’m not trying to avoid using a preservative.
The product is a lip gel containing 15% Sapogel Q, 2% powders like silica and lip safe mica, 2% Glycerin and 81% plant oils.
I’m not adding any water but the Sapogel Q contains water.
I’m not making this product to sell. It will only be me using it and I might give some away to friends and family.
I’m asking because lip safe preservatives are far and few between. I have some Geogard ECT on the way but I have no idea if this product will tolerate Geogard (Sapogel Q is a bit precarious/intolerant in my experience.)
I do use Liquid Germall Plus in my Sapogel products all the time with no issues.
Please let me know what you think, thank you!! ❤️
