Hair Matte pomade preservatives
I am developing a formula for an aqua based hair pomade.
Water is around 50% and kaolin 10%.
I am going to ask some preservative samples from supplier together with some I have in stock, to investigate their efficancy.
Do you have any experience or advise for the specific preservatives and/or for the specific application?
1)Phenoxyethanol and Glyceryl Laurate (emollient/booster)
2)Phenoxyethanol, Benzoic Acid, Sorbic Acid.
3)Phenoxyethanol, Piroctone Olamine
I have personally used 1 many times, but I am aware that i need something stronger.
I have seen benchmarks using Phenoxyethanol/Ethylhexylglycerin, which I think it will not be efficient, and phenoxyethanol, methyl paraben, ethyl paraben , propyl paraben, this one I want to avoid propylparaben.
Thank you in advance,
