  • STORAGE - Is it better to store my finished product in a refrigerator?

    Posted by jackleon80s on October 12, 2017 at 5:40 pm

    I have batches of my cream moisturizer packed in aluminum tubes. I am just wondering if it is worth storing them in a refrigerator or beverage cooler in around 40-45 degrees. Will it help prolong shelf life or should I just store them at room temperature?

    I am using euxyl pe 9010 as the preservative and my formula contains oils that were emulsified.

    All other things being equal, refrigerator stored products will last longer.

    Will it degrade emulsion?

    If you have a stable emulsion, probably not. If you have an unstable emulsion, maybe. This is why we test stability for every formula.
