  • Is it ok to add CMIT MIT as first ingredient in water for cleansing products?

    Posted by Abdullah on January 22, 2022 at 5:13 am

    I want to add ~1ppm CMIT MIT to my cleansing products to make them stronger 💪 and reduce the chance of adaptation. They also have formalin and EDTA. I add formalin as last ingredient just before NACL.

    My question is: is it ok to add CMIT MIT early in water in cold process cleansing products?

    Time might beat kinetics but I wouldn’t.   It’s instable in water solution .  Think your wasting your time with the tiny but of the stuff.
