  • Oil soluble preservative for body balm

    Posted by chem.ist on April 15, 2024 at 4:07 pm

    Hello,

    We have a client coming to us with an issue with one of their existing products. They have a body balm that consists of various oils (95-98% mostly avocado and olive) and an oil thickener. Customers are seeing mold growth after a while because they are encouraged to keep this product in the bathroom shower area.

    They want us to suggest ways to preserve this. Any suggestions on a great oil soluble preservative i can just add to their existing base?

    Thanks!
